Happy Monday!! It’s been a LONG while (almost two years!!) since I’ve done a “Last Weeks Workouts” post. My routine has definitely changed since 2015 and I wanted to share with you what a typical week looks like now!
Monday: Orangetheory. This class was a 3G (three group, which means you end up spending about 15 minutes at each station before switching — treadmill, rower and floor/weights). Monday was strength day, which is my favorite!
Tuesday: Steady state cardio and strength. My husband and I joined our local YMCA, since it’s so close to our new place. This was our first formal workout there and it was pretty crowded. I don’t know what it is about going to a new gym — even though I’ve been going to various gyms and fitness studios for many years, I always get a little intimated when trying to figure out the lay of the land in a new place. Anyone else? Anyway, I got about 20 minutes of cardio in on the spin bike while listening to a podcast before completing one round of the strength exercises in Fitnessista’s lift and row workout.
Wednesday: Orangetheory 3G — Wednesday’s class was endurance/strength/power. A little bit of everything!
Friday: Orangetheory. Friday’s class was another strength day!
What I Liked About This Week: I got in a good combination of cardio and strength, which is easy to do with three Orangetheory workouts. I also got in some quality rest days. I’m trying to minimize rest days to twice a week, but three is fine too!
What Needs Improvement: I’m still struggling to find a way to add flexibility into my routine. I would love to be able to make it to a yoga class at least once a week. Also, since we’re members of the YMCA now, I would like to add swimming back into my routine as well — weekly or bi-weekly would be ideal.
What have your workouts been consisting of lately? Let me know in the comments! If you’re looking for a new routine or some motivation, Fitnessista and Anne the RD just launched 2017’s Winter Shape Up! I will be incorporating some of these workout videos into my routine over the next month or so, I’d love for you to join me!
