Weight: 10-pound dumbbells & body weight
Way to keep at it with your workouts, Tina, especially considering everything you’ve been thru these past few weeks with your health! 🙂
Looks good…as much as I love strength training and its results, it’s hard for me to push myself on my own!
Doing this today! I wrote it down with instructions!
Looks like a good upper body workout Tina!
This first workout looks great! I’m doing it tonight. I love that I can do it at home without having to bike to the gym! That’s usually my main deterrent for strength workouts.
So excited – can’t wait to try this 🙂
Building a strong carrot! 🙂
Quick question. For someone who does as much strength training as you do, I have to say that I am surprised that you do push-ups on your knees. Is there a particular reason for that, or can you really not do the normal push-up?
@Emily: I’m still sore from Body Pump on Monday.
Can you do 45 normal push ups?
@Jen: In a row on my toes? I probably could, but it would be challenging!
Great workout!!!! Thanks! 😀
Looks like a great workout! I think I’m going to try it tonight!
Looks like a good upper body workout 🙂 I miss body pump classes!! I used to go to them at the old gym I belonged too.
Looks like an awesome workout! I can’t weight (pun intended) to see the next workouts!
These look awesome for vacation (or when I miss bodypump!) thanks for posting… Look forward to reading more!
Thanks for this. I have no dumbbells but do u think it will be effective with a resistant band?
when do you plan to do this routine? i have been battling when the right time to lift weights yes…the day before running, the day of running, the next day….i have been trying to do Lauren’s Core Workout right after I run and it seems ok
@Tami: I did it right after my run this morning.
Looking forward to reading these posts! I’ve been pretty good on keeping up with my strength training workouts, but am starting to get bored with the same moves over and over. Thanks for posting!
I’m so glad I’m not the only one who does push ups on my knees! And thanks for posting this, I really need to start incorporating weights into my workouts.
Thank you for this workout, and I hope you keep posting your workouts 🙂
Are you willing to share your long term training calendar so those (me) following your plan can look/plan ahead?
@John: I actually don’t have a long-term training plan for this. I’m just making the workouts up as I go along, but I will post them as soon as I do them!
This has given me some new ideas for my workout tomorrow. Thanks Tina! 😀
Thank you Tina, I’m going to tackle this tomorrow after a bike ride along Lake Michigan!
Do you normally power through each set? If not, how long do you pause between each?
@Marge: Here you go! http://carrotsncake.com/2011/07/carrots-n-weights.html
Yay thanks for sharing Tina! I love to see your workouts 🙂
Thanks for posting this, Tina! I would probably just make up the same sort of routine, but it’s somehow a lot more motivating coming from someone else. Motivation can be such a funny thing!
Hi Tina! Thanks for posting this, I usually run but when it comes to weights i feel useless. Should we repeat this 3 times a week or should we just follow your workout plan?
@AJMO: It’s totally up to you! I’m just posting my workouts as I do them! 🙂
Just finished this workout & it was pretty intense by the time I got to the third set – thanks for the post!

Whew! Just finished this workout and my poor arms are shaking! Thanks for posting it.
I’m going to try this out tonight (but modified as I’m just beginning). Do you have any tips for beginners?

Yay for strength training! The research is soooo strong on strength training for preventing osteoporosis and increasing metabolism!
I favor cardio, though, and have to push myself to get the weights in!
Kudos to you! 😉

I did this tonight! It was great!
I’m not sure if you do them in supersets or not? I did – the first 3, rest; then the second 3. It felt great! I’m just getting back into strength training so I used 5# weights and my arms are still rubbery! Love the on the knee push ups – even those are hard to do 45!
