Workout Monday 5/20/14

It’s getting close to the end of the Reinvent challenge at my gym (Vent Fitness)! So I am going to be adding a lot more cardio to my workouts to try and lose some of this pudge! Also…I am attempting to eat better also… ATTEMPTING… my 7+ Hershey Cookies N Crème bar binge yesterday might not have helped… (I know I should fight my food cravings when I am down…but…it is so hard…and it just makes me feel so much better- until I get a stomach ache… :-p ) That is my weakness by far: my diet. I applaud those of you who have it all under control, because I can’t seem to muster the will sometimes to stick to it.

Alsooo… I have what I believe to be tendonitis in my thumb. So lucky me! I am wearing a thumb stabilizer hand brace, which let me tell you is oh so attractive (and fun…). I feel like right around 23/25 my body has rebelled against me and started falling apart. This is also why I am so adamant and into my workout routine. I need to stay as healthy as possible for as long as I can! On to what I am really supposed to be posting about: my workout.

  • 6:30 am Kinetix with Arleen
    • A metabolic session taking you through a 4-cell training process focusing on power and strength in a functional calorie blasting workout!
  • 8:15 am BodyVive
    • Low-impact group fitness workout using VIVE balls, tubes, and optional hand weights
    • I will just mention that it says low impact, but in no way is this class easy. You can adjust the tube strength for more resistance, and it burnnssss!
  • 10:00 pm I took a 4.2 mile run with a small pee/Dino potty break at 3 miles in.

Feeling good and accomplished! Now I’m off to leg day at the Latham Vent, with my bestest Jenniferrrr. ❤

Workout Thursday 5/8/14

  • Workout 5/8/2014
    • 7:00am gravity class
    • 7:30am stabilyze class
    • Romanian deadlifts (I can go a lot further down because unlike most of these people in these videos I am actually flexible baha)
    • Leg Press Machine with 20 lunges in-between sets (40 total)
    • Hip abduction machine
      • So what I do is spread my legs so I can feel it in the upper/side of my butt/leg and I do little bounces back and forth keeping the muscle engaged the entire time and squeezing as I go the furthest out I can (“pulsing” is the word I am looking for!).
      • So 5 turns of 10 bounces (not sure what else to call it lol) 3 sets of each
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB67P2N-iHE lol usherrrrrrr
    • Smith machine squats so 5 total sets increasing weight and pushing till failure towards the end!
    • Standing calf raises
    • Landmine lunges
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMraJKe1Kxg
      • Sort of like that but I take the bar to one side dip down into a lunge then push back up doing the normal landmine move to the other side, then I dip down into a lunge onto the other side. I did this for 1 minute and I usually rest for 30 seconds and then go again for 5 sets…butt I was a little tired so I had 1 minute on and 1 minute rest x5.
      • Just make sure to keep abs engaged, and push off your heels, keeping proper lunge form. Do not round the back and watch the bar, if you dip it too low your back rounds and the bar can come out of the plate if you are using one to hold the bar in place! (I believe this is about ittttt maybeh…)
    • Hip adduction machine
      • 130lbs x 12 (3 sets)
    • Good nice and long stretching session!!!

Leg day 5-8-14 (word document for those of you who would like to look at it that way!

All done! ❤
