So in order to incorporate strength training into my workout schedule, I told myself during REM sleep Friday night that I would take the toning class following my Saturday
I wasn't going to jump in head first and use the 8-10lbs. I planned to start out slow and light. Please hand me the 3-4lbs dumbbells. Thank you.
The sets were seamless and easy - nothing fancy, no sumo squats or cherry pickers or dead-lifting your neighbor and her weights. It all seemed like a normal strength class. Until....
Crazy move, enter stage right. We did a walking plank. WTF? Moving from walking plank to tricep push up on the bench. Who-da-hell?!??!? Let's just say, I did 1 set of walking planks and stretched for the kamikaze tricep push-ups. I still have grooves indented in my palms from the bench.
Note to self...remember to not only pack weight gloves, but wear them next time!
I was expecting my upper body to be sore, but alas, it is my hamstrings that are crying to be let loose. So folks, I will spend most of today (Monday) stretching and sucking down Aleeve and water.
Workout plan for Monday: Zumba! At least some butt shaking and gyrating will help.
What's your workout plan for today? How do you psych yourself up for your workouts? What's your favorite strength move?
