Keerthi’s Weight Loss Workouts!
I do weight training exercises such as: bench press, push-ups, flyes, barbell rows, pulldowns, hammer curls, concentration curls, pushdowns, extensions, close grip bench press, squats, hack squats and deadlifts.
I include several different exercises for my cardio workouts. I will do 45 minutes of elliptical or inclined walking at 3.5 mph. Sometimes I swim 30-40 minutes and do cardio kickboxing for an 1 hour.
