Then finally, the strength section. Again, the ladder was the same, but I wanted to go a little heavier with weight and take the intermediate ladder. I grabbed a set of 25lb weights. One of the points of this particular set was to NOT remove your hands from the weights. Keep it moving. So, it’s working your grip and forearm strength as well as the other muscles in the exercise. It was weighted squats, exploding shoulder press, weighted lunges, dead lifts and pushups. 25 is my max with exploding shoulder press, and at this point of the workout, I could only “explode” them up once. After that, my form was obviously shot. My shoulders simply wouldn’t do anymore, so I had to drop weight to 20 lbs to do the ladder. About half way through, I thought I wasn’t going to finish is time, but I pushed and pushed. I finished with seconds to spare.
SUPER INCREDIBLY sore today! My legs especially.
Eating was good… tough to stay on track – temptation is everywhere, but triumphed on that. I find getting my water in on weekends especially challenging.
This week is incredibly hectic.
Tuesday – work, school (exam), committee – not home till 9:30
Wednesday - *ahh* a little breather. Work, home, Group Power, home. But, weather is supposed to SUCK
Thursday – work, gym (spin), choir
Friday – Work, gym? Home.
So, I guess, really it’s just tonight and tomorrow that is really nuts. Once I get to Wednesday, it’s not quite as bad.
Love that man.
That’s it for now. I hope you all are doing well out there! Norma mentioned some bloggers that have been MIA – I hope they are OK! Missing you!
