... I will begin Week One today of BB Piyo 60 day program. I previewed it over the weekend and tried a couple of the exercises and I really enjoy the structure of this program. Very unique and interesting moves, all using just your body weight.
... As I mentioned in a previous blog, I want to give conventional lifting of weights a rest, however, for problem areas, like triceps, core and lower body, I am going to aim @ training one (... or a combination) of these problem areas more intensively, using dumbbells or the barbell, at least once a week. I have to substitute some of these exercises because of the truncal lymphedema... i.e. substituting tricep push-ups with tricep kickbacks, overhead extensions, etc... Push-up with chest presses
While I can do modified, incline push-ups, push-ups on my knees, and planks with bent arms, I can't do these exercises all of the time... thank goodness for free weight exercises!!!!
... so my schedule may look like this:
Sun: Triceps/Core or legs, or triceps
I will try to post what I eat and my workouts everyday or most days for accountability.
I am looking forward to my first Piyo workout tonight. I will update later.
