Day Nine: Chest & Back

Friday, June 28, 2013

Day 9: Chest & Back (63 minutes) - I enjoy this workout. I still get annoyed by the instructor, but now just tune her out and focus on the work. Last week I felt a bit sore the next day, so I'm expecting that again. I guess the reason this workout is good is because you do the basic exercises with enough reps and then enough sets that it breaks down the muscle to be effective. I also use the exercise ball on this one, and I like using the ball!

I also did some other lunges, leg lifts, bicep curls, triceps kickbacks, and plank holds just to round it all out.

I have learned a lesson here, though, yet again! I didn't have time in the morning to do my workout, so I planned to do it at lunchtime at work. I kept getting interrupted, and the exercise was pushed and pushed. I finally got it all done about 6 P.M. - still at work - but it was tough to squeeze it in. I have to remember to just wake up super early if I want to get my exercise in. Otherwise, I find that it's too hard for me to get it done. I almost skipped the workout because of the stress of trying to squeeze it in, but I felt committed in doing it, thank goodness!

    Glad you enjoyed this one despite the instructor. It can be hard to get up early to get in a workout but it sounds like the best option for you! Hope it works!

    Sabrina - emoticon that you figured out what works best for you and how you pushed through to get your workout in even when it was not at your normal time. You're right that's committment and dedication. Even if it's next week sometime, whenever you get a chance don't forget to share some recipes with me.
