Last Week’s Workouts

I thought it would be fun to share a log of sorts of my weekly workouts to keep me motivated and accountable with my fitness goals!  So, here it is:

Monday:  Butts n gutts class!  I know I talked about this class all the time on our twitter account but I don’t think I’ve ever really gone into it on the blog.  The basic format is the class starts with about a 5 minute warm up which mostly consists of a million plie squats with a weighted bar.  Then, for the first 25 or so minutes of class we do some HIIT (high intensity interval training) which always involves kettle bell swings and plank jacks (sometimes burpees, bicycles, or mountain climbers are thrown into the mix).  Then, the last 30 minutes of class is more strength based: we do a lot of squats and lunges with weights and the BOSU ball.  We also do a lot of planks, side planks, etc. and often get in a bit of upper body too with tricep push ups, bicep curls, etc.  In short, IT KILLS ME. EVERY TIME.  My thighs are usually sore until at least Thursday when I go to this class.

Tuesday: I followed the loveyourbody weekly schedule and did 30 minutes of treadmill running and a few of the follow along videos (upper back and arms).

 Wednesday: Active rest day! Took a 75 minute yoga class with my mom and did 20 minutes of walking on the treadmill

Thursday: More tone it up videos!  Did HIIT, abs, and arms

Friday: this was an “I don’t know what to do at the gym” day.  Did 10 minutes on the stairmaster, a random arm circuit (bicep curls, overhead presses, tricep extensions, bent over rows), and 15 minutes of intervals on the treadmill.

Saturday: OFF! Valentine’s Day!
