Wednesday: Body Pump class: for some reason today I was quite exhausted at the end of the workout, and usually I'm the opposite. I think it may be the extra sugar I've been consuming lately. I haven't gotten paid yet, I get a monthly check, and if I buy agave,or stevia my brother uses it all. And since this stuff isn't exactly cheap I've just been using raw vegan sugar. And that along with my luna/clif bars is giving my system more sugar that it's used to. So basically I think I get a quick sugar rush with this extra sugar,and then I crash.
Thursday: Muscle Toning was today and it was a good strong workout, and then I ran for 4 miles.
Friday: rest day
Saturday; Cardio Strength, and Body Pump (new release)
C.S. I went with lighter weights because I wanted to have enough power for Body Pump which uses barbells. For the cardio part we ran around outside border of exercise room, ran forward backwards, shuffled, some running move they call karaoke one foot in front of the other then behinf the other sideways motion. We also also lunges, and sort of did a crawl like movement where we were face up, hips up walkingon hands and feet, then we did a downward dog kind of walk, pure torture but I loved.
Then I took a break, had a cup of coffee, and a clif bar, and rested before BP. After the yoga class got out I helped set up some benches, and barbells, and we started the new release. It was a high energy class as we had 4 very enthusiastic trainers in front. I was brave enough to be in the front row, this way I can see myselfin the mirror, and see if I'm doing it the same as the instructors. I can't say this release is exactly harder than the others I've done, but it is different. somethe female instructors I know from other BP classes, and I just went with the weight they used. For the warmup I used 20lbs total, squats 30lbs. This is a lot lighter thnI thought Iduse but usually the squat track has three sets, this time there were four. The chest track was about the same but there was absolutely no break for the whole thing, I went with 10lbs total. Back was 25lbs, and also 4 sets not 3, triceps 20lbs, start on the step with extentions, pullovers, then a weird pullover move that becomes an extention. And then you end sitting up doing tricep extentions holding a 10lb plate. Biceps 10lbs, and no break either, then lunges holding barbell 25lbs, and alternate no weights lunges. My favorite was next shoulders, I'm trying to pinpoint my exact pronlem with overhead presses, and I've spoken to a few of the trainers to find out what they think. I'm pretty flexible, so I'd on't think it's that, possibly just my rom. Anyway I can't remember what we started with now, maybe I'm trying to forget lol. There were overhead presses 15lbs, and front, and lateral raises, then a new move where one arm is in a front raise, and one in a lateral raise, I can'trecall what they were called, they had a funny name anyway. Finished off with some killer ab, and hip exercises. First was a hover, then a side hover, then opposite side I think and some more abs, and stretching. I'm quite tired this evening, and I think I may have forgotten a few things, but this post is already too long.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.
