Give It To Me

Yesterday

RU workout

Here's what my workouts at RU typically looks like, with several variations:

10 minute warm up on recumbent bike

4 sets each of:
*Barbell squats 10 reps, 65#
*Lunge matrix with two 25 pound dumbbells, equaling something like 50 lunges total
*Jumps - onto an 12 inch high cushy form X 15 reps
*Step ups - onto an 18 inch high cushy form X 15 reps

Then one set each of:
*Hip drive lunges with am 8 pound weighted ball, two different foot stances, 20 total
*Jump lunges matrix X 5
*Step down lunges, from a 6 inch step X 10
*Ab dolly - 5 sets, W formation.

I feel like I'm missing something, even though what I posted looks like plenty.

Stretching

Ice.

I thought I was done after the fourth round of that first set of exercises, but I pounded those exercises out with time to spare, so he threw me a few more.

I felt better yesterday, too.

I asked B to suggest a workout at home so it coincides with what I'm doing at RU. The idea is to not go into overkill. I have a pretty good grasp of what I should be doing at home, however, sometimes he'll throw in something that I've pounded out the day before, like abs. I'm hoping we'll get more into that next week.

Today

HIIT on the gym treadmill. Lowest points at 4.0 mph, highest point at 8.0 mph. I felt like tossing my cookies when I was done. I guess I'm still not completely over what ever made me feel crummy last weekend.

You hit the nail on the head Irene. Just don't overdo it. I have seen so many people who can't wait for results, and too much too fast, and then spend the rest of their workout weeks seeing doctors...

Great workout!
