Saturdays are so great. I love waking up without my alarm and having to wonder to myself...what day is it? Should I be awake? Oh...I can go back to bed...ok. It's just so great.
I woke up. Ate myself some Kashi GoLean Crunch, and headed to the gym. Today's workout:
Shoulders and Abs
Warmed up for a few minutes on the elliptical.
I alternated a shoulder exercise with an ab exercise to maximize time usage and allow for some muscle recovery.
Upright Row to an overhead press - 15 lbs/12 reps/3 sets
Alternating Leg touches (from laying down to full sit up) no weight/20 reps/3 sets
Alternating Front Raises - 15 lbs/12 reps/3 sets
Lower Ab Leg lifts to a crunch - no weight/15 reps/3 sets
Lateral Raises - 12 lbs/12 reps/3 sets
Extended Plank slow oblique mountain climbers no weight/20 reps/3 sets
Rear Deltoid Bent Over Raises - 10 lbs/12 reps/3 sets
Single Leg Planks with forward rocks no weight/60+ seconds/3 sets
I felt like that was a fairly sufficient shoulder workout...however, I had no idea what I was in for as far as my afternoon was concerned...My mom and dad picked me up and we went on the hunt for a dresser to refinish and some supplies to repaint my bathroom. You see, one thing that is fantastic about my parents is their down right amazing-ness when it comes to projects. They are so great. We spent most of the day in search mode, and finally came across exactly what we were looking for.
My bathroom was painted an awful sickly green color by the girl who was in it before me, and so I have always wanted to change it up. I spent the rest of my afternoon painting! Oh my burning shoulders! If they weren't tired before, they are sufficiently exhausted now. If you are looking for a great shoulder workout just hold your arms above your head for like three hours. Also, I think I did about 900 calf raises, so I should be set for the week there too. I have taken some before photos and will definitely take some after shots. I can't wait to show you! I hope your weekend has been great so far!
Happy Saturday! xoxoxo
What was your Saturday workout? Do you ever get to wake up without your alarm? I hope so. That is like Christmas to me!
