It's basically based on an intensity program or reaching high points. For example you'll do an exercise working your chest and you'll do reps of 12,10,8 and 6. Then you'll do another 12, followed by 12 working your chest with a different exercise. As you do this the intensity level is supposed to go from a moderate level 5 up to an intense level 10. As the weeks go by, the weights should go up because you are increasing your 'high point' when you do the two final reps of 12 each. Every other day you do weight training, alternating between upper body and lower body. Not sure if I explained it right. So, check the book out at your local library or splurge and buy a copy.
Tonight I was trying to find the proper weight level for me. I probably could have done a little more. But, it'll give me a baseline to work from.
The Weight Loss Game
Viv, over at "Excuse #1, I'm not Fit to Run" had a weight loss contest and I was one of the winners. I got to get these cool shorts and tee from Brooks Running. I've worn the shorts already and they are great.
No running tonight. Tomorrow morning is the Mesa Turkey Trot 10k that I'll be running for the third year.
Hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving Day!
