May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.
I want to talk about getting fit and active while living indoors.
In the time of living through the pandemic the health of my body has become my number-one priority.
Good to Know:
On the Dick’s Sporting Goods website you can buy real-deal dumbbells. Refrain from buying the Made in China dumbbells sold on Amazon.com.
My 15 pound dumbbell set was delivered in only 3 days from Dick’s. The total cost was $55 dollars.
I’ve decided to post here some of the workout log exercises my personal trainers have given me to do in the last 2 years.
For one year so far I’ve lifted weights at home on my hardwood floor for 25 to 40 minutes total in each session. For mostly 2X/per week.
I only go to the gym to run on the treadmill.
My trainer at the gym creates a 2-section routine for me to use. Upper body and Lower body exercises that alternate with each other on different days.
I complete 12 sessions of the current routine. Then the trainer creates a new routine for me. And so on. And so on.
Doing this I have been fortunate to remain fit if not active living through the pandemic.
Faced with the option of talking a long walk outside [it was sunny and warm!] having to gasp for air under a bandanna I chose to life weights indoors.
In the coming blog entries I’ll give some of the exercises.
