Todays accomplishments...tomorrows goals!

So, Day 1 of 2010... after having some great workouts for the week prior to the New Year - I decided to keep today's workout light and focus on trouble spots - belly and upper arms! 50 crunches, 20 situps (holding a 10lb weight) and many, many arm workouts (total workout time 15 minutes!). I prefer to use 7.5lb weights - but only had 10lb weights at home...so 2 sets of 12 arm lifts over the head - never letting the elbow drop below the shoulder, 2 sets 12 bicep curl, 2 sets 12 hammer curls, 20 dead weight lifts (floor to overhead), 2 sets of 12 "head bangers" (not sure what these are really called - but you lay on the floor with your arms extended straight up - over your chest - 1 weight held with both hands - you can use a weight bar too... then lower hands toward your head, bending at the elbow, keeping your elbows still - and NOT banging your head with the weight)... a great workout for that saggy upper arm tricep!
I also did 12 tricep kickbacks http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/workout/arms/exercises/the-love-your-arms-workout/?page=3

My arms are feeling it now! Tomorrow I will do my first body measurements for the year. I will also officially start my couch to 5k running program!
