My Wednesday workouts are by far my favorite of the week. I have the most time and energy to get in some good solid lifting and some good cardio. The best part is I get to work out doing things I LOVE which makes me even more happy. After work this morning I got my lift on. The workout for the day was total body again. I'll be doing total body until my foot heals up and I can get back to my running.
It went a lil' something like this...
Warm up 5 mins walking on the treadmill.
*Warming up is something that SO many people skip over, and shouldn't. With all of my stupid injuries I've been working through I've been reminded of the importance of warming up your muscles and priming them to work hard. It's VERY important and will keep you UN-injured!
*3 sets of each combo
12 Seated Rows With Cables ( 60 LBS)
12 Bicep curls to the front with cables (40 LBS)
12 Single Leg Lunge on Bench with Right leg and then left leg (holding 25 LB plate)
*place left leg on bench behind you, shoelaces down and lunge down slowly. Your front knee should be in line with your ankle and NOT go forward over your toes)
12 chest press lunges with the cables (40 LBS)
12 cable lunges with resistance (40 LBS)
15 Triceps dips on bench with feet up
10 squat alt with reverse lunges on the right leg (50 LB bar on shoulders)
12 Upright row to a deadlift combo (50 LB bar)
10 squat alt with reverse lunges on the left leg (50 LB bar on shoulders)
1 minute plank (with 25 LB plate on lower back)
12 side to side Pushups
*start from center and take arm out to the right push up, back to center, out to left push up back to center. etc.
20 up and over lunges on bench right
20 up and over lunges on bench left
*I'll have to include these and an exercise of the week one of these days. They are AWESOME.
Tonight will be cardio :)
45-60 mins intervals on the elliptical (depending on when I can get there!)
Janae's 45 min karaoke dance party...I mean spin class. Love. My legs will be toasted I'm sure, but it always feels good to get em' spinning.
I have to tell you I have been having a minor heart attack over the past two days. I lost this guy...
Also...remember how I told you I'm going on that sweet trip in a few weeks here? Well I've been trying to find a new swimsuit. How about trying on swimsuits to keep you motivated? Yowza! I got a bunch to try on and I want your opinions...
Do you have a day of the week that you feel like you get your best workouts in? Take advantage of those days!! It always feels good to know you got worked! Do you workout with music? Unless I'm working out with friends I prefer to have some tunes pumping me along. Which suit do you like best? a, b, c, or d? Does swimsuit season help you feel like kicking your buns in gear? It surely does for me!
