A few weeks back, my husband, who says what he means and means what he says, told me that my arms were getting a little too runner-like, in his opinion. This came as no surprise, as I was focusing on running almost to the exclusion of anything else. So I've planned some more upper body weight workouts over the last few weeks. And I put a pair of 12 pound weights in the family room, and have been using them when I watch TV. Hey guess what? When you lift weights consistently, you look and feel stronger! Here's my TV-watching weight routine:
Pushups: 3 sets of 10
Overhead press: 2 or 3 sets of 20
Rear delt flyes: 2 sets of 10 or so
Fast hammer curls: 2 or 3 sets of 15
One arm rows (using both weights in one hand): 2 sets of 10 or so
Tricep press: 2 sets of 10
As you can tell, I don't have this written down or formalized or anything. But doing this while watching TV makes it feel like "not exercise" and I like that.
