OHHH MY GOODNESS.
I cannot believe how crazy last week was, but obviously it was crazy enough for me to not post again after Monday. And yes, I have a billion and one things to share with you all. I don’t how y’all feel, but I certainly missed YOU. As always though, I love catching up during the week and leaving Sundays for Weekly Moves and Grooves!
Since last week was so busy, I only made it to the gym twice, and the rest of the days involved short dorm workouts or active rest. Making it to the gym just wasn’t my priority, and that’s okay. My body has enough to do throughout the day even without the formal workout!
random burpees // rest
hotel room workout tabata from Fit Foodie Finds
Those squat jumps and jump lunges killed my quads! I also had to start doing pushups on my knees because tabata pushups = “about to fall on my face because I can’t push back up anymore”
I think I got through 6 rounds + 14 reps of the workout.
gymnastics warmup + weighted (backup) pushups and tricep dips + 16 minute interval workout
I had fun finding objects in my dorm room to add resistance to some exercises! I put my anatomy textbook into my backpack (seriously the only way I’ve used that textbook) and…I even used my large Costco-sized jar of peanut butter for the interval workout. See how versatile peanut butter is? Reason #19849 to love it.
upper body workout + 8 minute ab tabata
I don’t remember exactly how many reps and sets I did for my upper body workout, but the workout definitely involved:
- lat pull downs + hand release pushups
- Arnold presses + plank jack burpees
- seated rows + overhead tricep extensions
- shoulder raises + bent-over barbell rows
The 8 minute ab tabata was 4 rounds of 10 seconds rest, 20 seconds work of:
My whole upper body was surely sore the next day.
5 min. row warmup + circuit workout
For the circuit workout, I did 5 rounds of:
100 high knees // 15 goblet squats // 10 burpees
then straight into 5 rounds of:
100 high knees // 20 hamstring ball curls // 10 burpees
This left me red in the face and not wanting to wear my winter jacket when I walked back to my dorm!
Alrighty. Tomorrow. Post. Look out for it. Love you.
So tell me:
