Here it is: Carrots ”˜N’ Weights (CNW)!
I officially started marathon training this week, so I’m simultaneously revving up my strength training routine. I don’t want to lose any of my scary muscles in the coming months!
My basic plan is to strength train three times each week: one Body Pump class + two upper body/full body workouts, which I will post on CNC as I do them. I’ll publish them in a separate post, so you can keep track of them and do them as you like. For your own planning purposes, you can expect at least two CNW strength training workouts each week. Feel free to fit them into your current exercise routine as you please.
The majority of my Carrots ”˜N’ Weights workouts should take about 20-30 minutes to complete and only require free weights (resistance bands work too), so you can do the workouts at home or the gym. I will post the number of sets, reps, and weight that I use, but be sure to do what’s best for you. In between exercises, I don’t rest and move from one to the next. Between sets, I rest for only about 20-30 seconds, just long enough to give my muscles a quick break.
If you have any questions, please let me know! I’ll post my first workout later today.
