There really are no words to describe just how much I didnt want to work out yesterday.
I went to bed late the night before, woke up late the next morning… accomplished a grand total of NOTHING that was on my to do list and it left me feeling kinda down. On top of it all its freezing cold and raining. and I have no car. Going to the gym is not really want I wanted to be doing.
This is what I wanted to be doing…
Snuggle buggling with my doggy.
I have said it before and I will say it again…
you can make EXCUSES or you can make it HAPPEN!!
So I drank one cup of green tea and one cup of turkish coffee, bundled myself up and off I went to do a back workout:
warm up and shoulder mobility exercises and then:
-clean and jerk practice
– 1 arm cable pulldowns
– 1 arm dumbell row ( 16kg)
– bent over row with 2 10kg plates
-seated cable row
that was it 🙂
It took me over and hour.. because the gym instructor would not STOP TALKING. how annoying is that???
Today I did a shoulder workout… even though I was a little fatigued from the clean and jerks yesterday:
warm up. shoulder mobility exercises
-dive bomber pushups
-lateral side raises
– horizontal rope pull
-shoulder press ( 2 x 10kg)
I did this AWESOME little circuit using the rowing machine:
250m row 20 pushups 250m row 20 pushups 250m row 20 pushups 250m row
and to finish a few ab exercises… twists with a 10kg plate and a few sets of toes to bar ( hang off a bar like you’re going to do hanging leg raises and instead you bring your toes to touch the bar)
So I have mentioned before I keep a workout log, I write all my weights, sets and reps. I plan every workout in advance… some times I actually write out the whole week of workouts and that way I have my plan and I stick to it!
This is what my workout book looks like:
hmm on second thought… this wins the worst photo award, never mind my cavewoman cake
So basically I write up 5 days of workouts, 1 day yoga and 1 day off, over the two pages and I also leave room for my meals. That way I can keep track of what is working for me and what is not.
This was lunch today… steamed veggies and tilapia
Tomorrow is my day off ( I skipped class today so I switched my rest day to Friday and worked out today!) and I’ll be back on Saturday with a breakfast recipe and my plyometric leg workout 🙂
