If you read any fitness magazines or blogs, you probably come across the age-old piece of advice "Work out with a Buddy" all the time. You probably see it all the time because it's true.
This morning, I worked out with a new friend/neighbor. We actually don't know each other very well but we dove into a workout together anyways and it turned out beautifully. She is just as casually competitive as I am and gives her workouts maximum effort - just what I needed to see. No excuses - just go.
Elliptical - Level 5, 30 minutes
Biceps Curl - 10 reps x 3 sets @ 30lbs
Triceps Extension - 10 reps x 3 sets @ 30lbs
Seated Row - 10 reps x 3 sets @ 45lbs
Shoulder Press - 7 reps x 3 sets @ 30lbs
Chest Press - 7 reps x 3 sets @ 30lbs
We also did some ab work on the floor. Simple crunches, leg lifts, side plank lifts. What a great workout!
Do you have a workout buddy? How do you keep each other motivated?
