Shaking It Up and WIAW
Let’s just get right to the point with this post! First, I got my butt kicked with Jillian Michael’s “Making the Cut” workout. I picked this book up at the library to get some new ideas for clients, but also to give some of her workouts a try, and I loved it. I have no problems pushing myself when it comes to running long distances, doing intervals on the Step Mill or treadmill, but when it comes to strength training, I can sometimes just “coast” along. I knew I needed to shake things up and let me tell you, this did it. Going to add these into my workout schedule to keep me motivated and continue to keep my muscles guessing through the winter months.
I started off with the Day 1 workout. I warmed up with 20 minutes of speed intervals on the treadmill and then did the workout, which took a total of exactly 45 minutes. This was what Circuit #3 looked like and left me shaking:
- Bench Dips – 20
- Rope Triceps Presses – Until muscle failure
- Static Lunge with Lateral Shoulder Raise – 10 each leg
- Mountain Climbers – 1 Minute
- Boat Pose – 30 Seconds
Secondly, I had a awesome day of eats, that thankfully kept me satisfied and full for the entire day, despite my killer workout, and running around to client’s homes. Cannot believe it is already Wednesday and I still haven’t done any shopping. HA! This is very typical of me. I like to leave things until the last possible second…Thanks Jen for hosting another WIAW…ENJOY!
