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

Last Week’s Workouts

…on the road version!

Monday
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!

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

Wednesday
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!

Friday
Off / rest day!

Saturday
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!
