Lat pulldowns (pullups if you can do them) 3 sets of 12
Leg extensions 3 sets of 12
Bench press 3 sets of 12
Calf raises 3 sets of 12
Shoulder press 3 sets of 12

Optional exercises: deadlift, dips, dumbbell flies, preacher curl.

Wish me luck!


  1. It's like you read my mind! I just posted a blog today about how I'm looking for a good weights workout to supplement my running. I run 4 times a week and want to do weights 2-3!

    Is this the same routine you do every time? Do you have any strength training tips that are beneficial to runners??

  2. you're some kind of woman to tackle that workout. I'm not huge on circut workouts- I like 1 body part/region at a time. But I'm curious, what does a buff chica like you bench??

  3. the workout went really well. we're going to do it again tonight! :)

    for running, i've got to get it all in in one night so i can run and cross train other days, so yes, jace, i would totally rather work it in different days, but simply can't.

    hrm, so i did the bar last time for the full set. it was kinda hard. does that make me a wimp? :)
