Weights Workout

Since I am a little restricted on what I can do, I had John put together an upper body weight workout.  It's basically all shoulders and back, no core, and emphasizes lifts that work multiple muscles at the same time.  Here's what John put together:

Back (3 sets, 12 reps)
  • Wide grip seated cable rows
  • Underhand cable pull down
  • Single arm dumbbell row to triceps kickback
Shoulders (3 sets, 12 reps)
  • Dumbbell military press
  • Dumbbell front raise to T
  • Dumbbell upright row
All of the dumbbell lifts I used 10-15lb dumbbells.  The pull downs and cable rows I used 50 lb.  I also have been doing squats and lunges, both of which are highly recommended for pregnant women.  Even though I was using light weights, I was still a little sore the next few days.  I'm trying to work  lifting in once a week between biking, running, swimming, and yoga.

And in Peanut news, I think I felt him/her move today!  Or it was just gas, I can't really tell.  But anytime soon, I should be able to feel the little bugger moving around.
