Work It Out

Log of daily workouts…

Week of March 30

Sunday:  nothing

Monday:  Bodyrock workout 28 rounds of 10 sec rest/30 sec. work

Tuesday:  am – Squat Challenge Day 1 – 30 squats    pm – Beautiful Badass Beginner workout, week 1, day 1  (deadlifts, chin ups with band :(, overhead shoulder press, planks)  I like the change.  More sets but fewer reps which means eventually I can go heavier.  My shoulders were really sore from yesterday’s workout so I didn’t do all of the chins or presses – ouchie!

Wednesday:  am – Squat Challenge Day 2 – 50 squats done in 2 sets of 25  pm-walk/run 30 minutes (angry because my 10k training app wasn’t working properly so it wasn’t cuing when to run or walk….grrrrr)

Thursday:  am – Squat Challenge Day 3 – 75 squats done in 3 sets 30/25/20 and I felt the burn pm – Beautiful Badass Beginner workout, week 1 day 2 (reverse lunge, push ups, inverted rows and side planks).  Why is it my kids always need MY help while I am working out?!?

Friday:  am – Squat Challenge Day 4 – 60 squats done in sets of 30/20/20.  My thighs and butt were sore today.  I am thinking from the reverse lunges yesterday.  Planning on foam rolling later tonight.  No pm workout.
