Operation: Keep It Tight

"Operation:  Keep it Tight" is a cute lil' moniker I've given to my workout regimen.  I'm very much into "keeping it tight".  It's great for health and just makes me feel good, not to mention what it does for my appearance. *smile* For those who'd like to know, I workout about 3-4 times a week.  Nothing special, nothing spectacular--just a good clean workout for about 30-45 minutes.  I tend to jump on the treadmill at the YMCA or go run outside for about 25-30 minutes.  I don't always run that full amount, I sometimes powerwalk some of that.  I do try to make sure at least 15 minutes of that time was actual jogging.  Next, if I'm at the Y, I do a little weight training......

I tend to focus more on my arms (biceps, triceps), shoulders, back, and abs.  I don't do much weight training on my legs because I feel like they get a good enough workout from running/walking, and also from the fact that I usually end my workout with 7-10 minutes on the StairMaster machine.

That contraption above is KILLER!  It's great for the legs and also works those gluteous maximus muscles, i.e. whips that butt into shape.  Like I'd mentioned earlier, I only use it for 7-10 minutes at a pretty brisk speed.

Also, for the moms out there who might be reading this, a lot of the time when I'm running/outside my little one is with me in his jog stroller.  Now, I know the "Cadillac" of jog strollers is the B.O.B. brand, but if you want a really nice affordable brand of jog stroller--I personally own a Schwinn (they also make the InStep brand).  The one pictured below is exactly like my Schwinn (except mine is blue).  This particular model they only make under the InStep brand as of now.

So there you have it.  My very simple workout regimen.  I'm on a mission to stay in shape.  Operation: Keep it Tight is in full effect.  Ten-four, over and out.  :)
