Surprise strength training

this am I headed out to go to (what I thought) was a nutrition class. However I showed up and it was actually a work out class. whoopppss. Luckily I was in work out gear b/c I was going to run after. So I had to get my mind in the game and start some ab work. It was HARD. I have not done strength training in a while b/c I replaced my one day of a class with running due to the 9 mile run I have coming up.

Well I felt it. My abs are weak and I need to focus on strength again. I used my excuse on my trainer and she said you know you could do it at home 2 x's a week for 20 minutes. And she is right. Why can't i dedicate 20 minutes to some push ups and sit ups and such ? why ? I think I feel as if it won't make a difference. I feel like I need to do an hour long kick ass boot camp for it to make a difference.

What do you think ??


  1. i've found doing it 3x's a week for 10 min is more manageable for me.

    but i still go through lapses. but somehow 3 sessions of 10 minutes is more manageable;-)

  2. You know, I started encorporating an hour long bodypump class into my schedule once a week to get some extra strength training in and it has worked wonders. I don't like the idea of BP taking up a whole day in regards to workouts, so sometimes I will run or bike in the morning, or do something short afterwards. In addition, I did start doing more core work on my own 3 or 4 times a week... you can look for short video clips(or long ones too) of core/pilates/yoga/strength workouts on exercisetv.tv .... I love that site!

  3. 3 weeks ago I started a dvd strength training. I do it every other day and it is 20 minutes long. And let me say you don't realize it til you actually do it how much we as people really need it. :)

  4. yeah, I always slack on core. I don't know why, I think I just don't think to do it unless I am in the gym or I get my training schedule and it's on there. It is so important though (note to self).

  5. Hi there, yeah this paragraph is really nice and I have learned lot of things from it concerning blogging.
