Mike’s Workout

I was feeling anti-gym after work yesterday for some reason.  I knew that I had a loooooong run planned for today, so I was definitely going to lay off any leg exercises. Time for some upper body action. But watching “Opening Act” on E! was sooooo much more entertaining than watching Tony Horton lift 50 lb dumbbells for the 397350th time.

P.S. – has anyone seen that show? I think that was the first time I have EVER turned our TV to the E! station, but I loved the concept of the show…making dreams come true, one Youtube sensation at a time. Thanks E!.

Anyway, the hubs has created his own “everything” workout that consists of chest, back, shoulders, biceps, triceps and abs (well, almost everything). Perfect TV workout. Let’s go.

24 total sets. Do 8-15 reps per set. For the ab workouts, do 25 reps per set.
