What a weekend.
The past couple of days have been a roller coaster of emotions.
In an attempt to get my mind off of everything, I am posting my workouts from last week.
You will see that each exercise is numbered.
Below each workout there will be corresponding numbers and if you click on those, it will take you to an exercise demonstration.
Hopefully this will help in case you don’t know what an exercise is.
Someday I want to be able to do all of the demonstrations…but for now these ones off the internet will have to do.
Sorry in advance for some of the strange ones haha.
You can do regular push ups or modified push ups.
For #9 look at the exercise called “making waves”.
I did my overhead press and arnold press on a stability ball to help work the muscles in the core.
KB stands for kettle bell.
I did two yoga videos after work on Wednesday.
Try to use the same weight for both EZ bar exercises.
If you can row more weight than you can curl just do extra reps for the row. That way you are still fatiguing the muscle but you can also move quickly between sets.
A dropset is when you start with a heavy weight…do as many reps as possible and then immediately lower the weight and repeat.
For example you may start at 50 on the bicep curl machine.
Do as many reps as possible…drop the weight to 40…do as many reps as possible…drop the weight to 30…do as many reps as possible and repeat until you get to the lowest weight.
You want to keep your heart rate up for this workout so try to rest as little as possible.
The Bosu ball squats are great because they will work your legs as well as your core.
If you can’t balance on the ball quite yet, just do bodyweight squats on a solid surface and work your up way to the Bosu ball.
For circuit three, go back and forth between these two exercises as quickly as possible. You really want to try to burn out your muscles on these last sets.
I hope these workouts can help get you motivated to hit the gym!
Let me know if you try them out…and as always email me with any questions.
