Weekly Workouts

Morning, friends.  Let’s get this week started on the right foot.  Let’s talk Weekly Workouts!

Weekly Workouts

Last Week’s Workouts

…on the road version!

Courtyard Marriott Gym

Day before my trip, at the Y:  20 minutes of cycle sprints on the Spin bike, followed by 6 rounds of upper body Tabata work.

Sunday Workout

After we arrived at the hotel and did some work from our rooms:  40 minutes of longer cardio intervals on the elliptical, followed by some core work.  Focused on standing obliques and planks!

Morning workout before heading to the office:  20 minutes of sprints on the treadmill, followed by 4 rounds of lower body Tabata work.

Workout after the office & before dinner:  1 mile warmup on the treadmill, followed by a deck of cards workout that got me some weird looks from fellow hotel gym goers!

Workout after the office & before dinner:  10 minute warmup on the elliptical, followed by a countdown circuit and 1 round of an abs focused Tabata.

Hotel Countdown Workout

Off / rest day!

2 mile run outside with Tim, followed by some ab work and some practice rounds of April Arms as I was designing this week’s challenges.  I originally wanted to go to Monique’s Kickboxing class, but it was too nice out and I just couldn’t get myself there in time.  I promise I’ll be there soon, Monique!

This Week’s Workouts

This week kicks off both Round 5 of Best Body Bootcamp, and Week 1 of my April Arms Challenge, so I have lots of fun workout plans in store for me!  If you are a regular class attendee of mine AND also doing BBB, pay attention because I will not be teaching the workouts from the BBB plan in the order they are listed in Tina’s spreadsheet.

  • Sunday: Rest
  • Monday:  3-2-1 cardio intervals + pyramid pushups
  • Tuesday:  Returning to Two A Day for an hour of Kickboxing with Liz, then teaching my class with Workout C (unilateral training).  I’ll likely do the Tuesday Triceps from the Arms Challenge in my class.
  • Wednesday:  Off OR steady state + Biceps Blast
  • Thursday:  Teaching my class with BBB Workout A + Tabata Thursday
  • Friday:  25 minutes cardio + Friday Five
  • Saturday: BBB Strength Workout B + cardio of some sort??

I have it planned out, but of course — subject to change depending how my body is feeling and how the week is going.

You tell me:  How were your workouts last week?  What’s on the agenda for this week?  Anyone playing any good April Fool’s jokes today?

April Arms folks — hope you guys are rocking those pyramid pushups to start Day 1 off right!

Weekly Workouts

Good morning, friends!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  We’re at the start of another week, so let’s talk fitness!

Weekly Workouts

Like my new Weekly Workouts design?  I needed something to beef up this Monday blog series of mine.  Let me tell you, it was really hard to choose which pictures to use – I have so many!

Last Week’s Workouts

Sunday:  Off

Monday:  Subbed for Kim’s interval class

Tuesday:  25 minutes of spin intervals + taught my class

Circuit Workout

Wednesday:  Off

Thursday:  Taught my Thursday morning class

Friday:  At home workout!  15 minutes of Kickboxing + deck of cards workout.  The deck of cards workout was sweaty – I added my gliding discs and bender ball to some of my usual moves to change things up a bit.  The pikes to pushup combo was TOUGH.

Saturday:  2 mile run outside with Tim + core pyramid work

This Week’s Workout Plan

  • Sunday:  Off
  • Monday:  Cardio + Abs
  • Tuesday:  Two A Day!  Liz’s kickboxing + teaching my class
  • Wednesday:  Off or TBD
  • Thursday:  Teaching my class
  • Friday:  Zumba Party!
  • Saturday:  Saturday morning workout, TBD

If you are wondering what this Zumba party is all about, we’re having another fundraiser at the Y this week.  It’s going to be a ton of fun, if you don’t have anything going on this Friday night from 6:30-8:30 come join us – it’s 80’s and glow in the dark themed!

How did your workouts go last week?  What’s on this week’s agenda?

Hope everyone survived winter storm Nemo!  I know that I had a wonderfully lazy and relaxing weekend all cooped up in the apartment with Tim.  Of course I was disappointed about things like the Y’s canceled Spin-A-Thon (it’s rescheduled for this Saturday if you are still interested) and Erica not being able to visit from New York, but I’ll be honest – a hunkered down weekend was exactly what I needed.  It felt so nice to just not be doing, well, much of anything.  Today it’s back to the grind though, and let’s be honest, I’m too Type A to be able to sit around doing nothing for more than a couple of days at a time.  I already busted out a morning workout, it’s back to the office today, then tonight my brother and I are taking my grandfather out to dinner.  Hope everyone has a nice Monday, and drive safe out there!

How did you spend your weekend?
