Workout: Day 7
I hate to break it to you, but I went pretty easy on you last week. This week, you’re going to feel it.
Today we’re going to start with upper body “pushing,” which means doing resistance exercises that involve movements pushing away from your body that train the chest, shoulders and triceps muscles. You can do this in a park or at home. I’m more a fan of the park. See this article for detailed descriptions.
Upper body pushing exercising are the “park bench pushup” and “triceps dips” in the above article. If you want to do them at home you can substitute a couch for a bench and the corner of a kitchen counter (with a sturdy stool to take some of your body weight off) for the tricep dips. If this is your first foray into this type of training, don’t push too hard, but be willing to make some effort to get the results. Do as many sets as you can before your arms feel weak.
Don’t forget your daily walk. You should be getting better at this, able to go faster and further, so remember to keep track of your progress.
