I lift arms and back on Tuesday afternoon and chest and shoulders on Friday afternoon. I do a brief leg work out after my upper body workout on both days. Weights is probably an area where I have changed the most since I was in my 20’s. My father was a fullback at FSU in the 1950’s and a very successful high school football coach. Therefore, I grew up with the mentality of lifting heavy. After a shoulder surgery or two I now lift more reps and lighter weight.
I cannot say enough good things about Pilates. I am humbled by the folks in my Pilates class and the benefits strong abs, hips, and back have for running.
