Tuesday Workout

Today was weights day.  I hate weight training…I am honestly one of those people who would rather run 10 miles a day than pick up a dumbbell but cardio and strength training are both necessary.  I lift for strength training and tone.  I will post one day why I hate doing weights in the gym.

I have adjustable weight dumbbells, a yoga mat, and a Swiss ball, and a medicine ball at home so I have found that that is good enough for what I do.  I don’t know gym rat terminology so I am going to be very generic in describing my workout (hopefully I will Google what the actual exercises are called in later posts).
