Here was my workout for today: I'm exhausted right now.
You guys put me to shame; I am totally impressed with your fitness levels!! I couldn't keep up NOT pregnant.
Buuuttttt...you DID motivate me to hit the gym:
- 30 min hill program on treadmill @ 3.7mph
- 2 sets of 10 reps each, 5lb dumbells: overhead press, lat raises, bench, flies, rows, reverse flies, curls, tri extension
It was a decent 50min workout for getting back in the groove. I have yoga tomorrow morning.
I had my first Mommy and Me Bootcamp class in months this morning. It wasn't a super strenuous workout but it was nice to get in a good hour of activity. I'm so glad the weather is nice enough we can move outside again. The kids run wild in the playground and basically entertain themselves for an hour while we workout.
45 minute yoga class today! My body and mood are thankful that I have made exercise a priority this week. My goal is to average 3x yoga and 2x sweaty cardio a week as long as I can.
Oh, and per the Chat thread, I want to incorporate at least 5 min (total, not sustained) of Goddess pose and/or supported squat daily.
I am finally getting into an exercise routine, though I'm also nowhere near as in shape as some of you here (crossfiitting I would love to do but I have to work towards that postpartum). The warm weather has made swimming the perfect exercise. I swim laps and do some exercises in the water as well. I know what you mean about returning to gravity MadiMamacita, after an hour in the pool today I felt heavier than when i got in LOL.
So I've gotten the swimming in this week and I want to add daily walks as well. The walks I'd like to do on my own when the kids are in school, its a nice way to exercise but also clear my head.
Back to Crossfit today. I just got super busy and didn't get any exercise in since last Thurs. I think. I dreaded going today but it seriously puts me in a WAY better mood. I need to remember that - apparently over and over and over again.
Back Squat, 5-5-5-5-5 reps
As many rounds as possible in 6 minutes:
Run 400m (buy-in)
4 front squat
6 lateral burpees over barbell
Goin' Green - I did the burpees this time...I just held a plank rather than hitting the ground. It sucked
I went on a short bike ride today- pulling my 3 y.o. in the trailer. It was only about 20 min, but felt good.
After all of your intense exercise talk here, I must have felt inspired- my dreams last night were of nothing but me exercising. I was alone in a huge, empty gym doing all sorts of fancy moves. Super weird! I feel like it should count though!
Ha Miss E - I am sure it sounds totally weird! I did a boot camp kind of program before Crossfit so these terms are normal to me, but before that, I don't know what I'd think!
21 OHS (overhead squats)
Core development - Russian twists with a med ball and plank holds
I am starting to need more and more assistance from bands with my pull ups and could only overhead squat the bar. I felt really weak today :(
Goin' Green - I hear you on the burpees. When I finally broke down and did them in a workout, I dropped into the plank instead of hitting the ground and that was seriously hard!
I was supposed to do a workout on Thursday but DD was completely uncooperative, so hadn't worked out since Wednesday.
Today I did a "team" workout:
50 push press (65lbs)
50 wall ball shots (14lbs)
While 2 people are doing the above (one person works at a time) the other 2 (in our case, only 1) is running a 400m. Switch when runner returns.
AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) in 20 minutes.
And i was out til 1:30 last night, worked out at 9, coached at 10, and am babysitting 3 neighbor kids tonight. SO tired!
