Workout #37 (lower body/core with Bernard)

Bernard called me before noon and asked if we could push the session back from 4 PM to 5 PM and that was fine with me. I figured I’d still have plenty of time to vote (and I did). Today was lower body/core day. The gym wasn’t as crowded as it usually is on a Tuesday afternoon but I think that is in part because it was raining out.


Exercise group 1

  • Jump squats. 3 sets. 12/12/12
  • Dumb bell curls (standing on one of those half exercise ball things). 3 sets @ 9 kg in each arm. 12/10/10
