Another week, another week of workouts in the books.
Last week was a lot of circuits, a lot of cardio, a lot of food, and a few bruises. I was STARVING Wednesday – Friday. I’m sure that means something, but I could not get enough food. I was an unsatisfied, bottomless pit all week! On Friday I finally gave in and ate a bowl of carb-loaded, sugar coated cereal. To make myself feel a bit better about my choices I decided to mix up a vanilla protein shake and use that as my “milk.” Don’t do it. Don’t ever do it. It’s terrible.
Enough about food, let’s talk workouts.
Warm-up: 3 rounds/30 sec. high knees, jump squats, push-ups, jump lunges.
Front Squats: 5 rounds of 3 – 95#
- (7) Squat cleans: 75#
- (14) KB swings: 40#
I had matching bruises on my shoulders for 3 days after this workout. Squat cleans left me a nice shade of black and blue.
Ran 1.5 miles from work to the gym. Every minute on the minute (for 20 minutes) I completed the following:
- 5 pull-ups
- 10 pushups
- 15 squats
This added up to 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, and 300 squats. I did assisted pull-ups, duh, and modified push-ups (still working on building strength in my chest). This was a tough one. I had plans to run back to work, but thankfully The Carnivore was close, so I bummed a ride back to the office.
Wednesday – Yoga
- 20 Double-unders
- 10 Thrusters 50#
- 20 Pike ups (on stability ball)
- 10 Single leg hamstring curls (on stability ball)
- 20 Dips
I still can’t do 20 unbroken double-unders, but they are getting better and better! Practice makes progress, right?
Friday – Rest Day
And carb loading. GIVE ME ALL THE FOOD!! I had an unsatisfiable appetite all day. I ate everything in our house… and stayed in my pajamas until 1:00pm. #sorrynotsorry
Aerial Silks class at Climb Up! Norman. Watch out Ringling Bros., here I come! This class was seriously so much fun! I think silks will be a necessary skill when I join Cirque Du Soleil.
All that carb loading gave me SO. MUCH. ENERGY.
Ran 2 miles to the gym
10 min AMRAP (7 rounds)
- (10) KB Sumo deadlift high pull – 40#
- (10) Burpees
Ran 2 miles home
Rest day – I don’t know why I ever plan workouts on Sundays. They never happen.
I meal prepped, taught a yoga private, and did some mobility work – so I guess there’s that.
