Weekly Workouts 1/8 – 1/14

One of the reasons that I love fitness is because there’s always something that I can improve on or achieve. I can always strive and push myself to lift a heavier weight, do one more rep, or run one more minute. I want to use this blog as a place I can track where I’m at with my workouts and see how much I have improved every so often. My fitness goals for the year include:

  • Benching 135#
  • Squatting 200#
  • Deadlift 250#
  • Attend yoga every week or set aside time to stretch

To achieve these goals I’m on a strength-building program with five scheduled lifts a week. On my off days I either go to a yoga class or walk on the treadmill. I’ll also take complete days off from the gym if I’m sore or have something going on.
