Back to Training

Because of my crazy schedule last week, I was unable to workout with Martha.  However, this morning it was back to our training schedule, and I am so thankful!  Here’s what today looked like:

Circuit One (two times)

  • squat curl and press with 12lb db’s – 15
  • wide pushups – 20
  • lunge fwd/back with pass 8lb db(as seen on a JM workout, not sure which one) – 15 each leg
  • figure 8 with 8lb db – 15
  • low plank – 1:15

Circuit Two (two times)

  • burpees – 15
  • lat raise with pour with 5lb db’s- 15
  • reverse flies 8lb db’s – 15
  • wide-to-narrow jump squats with 10lb db – 15 (thank you Megan)
  • butterfly crunches – 30

Circuit Three (two times)

  • wheel lunges – 10 each leg
  • plank pushups – 10 leading with each arm
  • pilates 100
  • side v-crunches – 20 each side
  • twist crunch with elevated feet (mason twists) – 30
  • side plank pushups – 15 each side

It was a great workout to get back into our routine.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

What is your workout today???

    6 am bootcamp-

    Pyramid intervals- that’s what I will call them. 

    Set 1. 10 reps of each-

    Push ups
    Lunges (modified I do squats)
    Mountain Climbers
    Half Planks
    Side Bends to ankle touch (wheels)
    Plank Jacks
    Toy Soldiers

    This is “base” and each time at base you do another set. 9 reps the second time, 8 reps then 7, 6, and so on. After each set you jog to cardio station.

    The cardio intervals are set up with the ever-popular ORANGE CONES in a line about 15 yards or 20? I’m not sure. Cardio is timed at 3 minutes- you complete your line of cones then jog back to start again. At the end of the 3 minutes you jog back to “base” and begin the next Set.

    Each round of cardio we did something different as follows-but I am not certain of the order:

    Leap Frog/Squats to cones
    Plank Walk
    Bear Crawl
    Hurdle over cones
    Squat Jacks/short sprints
    Burpees/short sprints

    There is one more and I have forgotten- This afternoon is B4L- legs and 20 miles on stationary bike. It’s more about the miles I get in at this point than the amount of time it takes- still slowly rehabbing the ole’ stank leg.

    I may do your workout on Thursday-as my Thursday PM class has been cancelled. sad face.

    It looks awesome!!! Thank you!

    PT TEST RESULTS!!! Based on my numbers from the first test I included the improvement percentages too! (because, yea, ummm I MIGHT be a little nerdy and I like numbers…Im cool with it.)

    Many as you can in 1 minute: May 2011 July 2011 % improved

    Push Ups (man style/mod) 5/ 27 6/20 (what?) +20%/-22% ???

    Sit Ups 24 30 +25%

    Tri-Dips 20 40 (big smile) +100%

    Squats 50 68 +36%

    Laps Run in 10 minutes 18.5 24 +29.72%

    A couple of points I make: 1. I am not sure on push ups why I decreased except I KNOW my form is better now-so perhaps in the beginning I was “cheating” myself and didn’t REALLY complete 27 as noted. I am not worried about it either way. Obviously-my shoulders and triceps are major improved as I was able to DOUBLE the number of dips completed in one minute. BIG SMILE!!!! (as you know, I want pretty muscles and I want to be strong so…) 2. The run in 10 minutes was sooo much better- not vastly faster and I am okay with that-but way way more comfortable-no dry heaving at the end-and only walked 4 laps here and there thruout-mostly kept a steady jog and was totally fine. THIS, the cardio improvement is the thing I am most happy about. And thankful for!

    Okay- so there ya go. The one month break from bootcamp starts now and I am working on a new M,W,F workout plan-I will share with you when it is all set up. new bootcamp begins in September and I am totally looking forward to it!
