Usually, my trainer workout is on Thursday, but due to scheduling conflicts, we moved it to Monday this week. I cringed almost immediately when Jen said that we were heading to the gym.
I really hate the gym workouts. They are outside of my comfort zone and they are extremely difficult for me. I guess that means that I need more practice.
It probably didn’t help that I was tired and had taken my typical Monday morning spin class earlier.
I tried not be grumpy as we did this workout-
2 sets of the following:
- Side Shuffles 1/2 court x 2
- Tennis Ball Shuttle Run 5 balls x 2
- Wall sit 2 x :30sec
- Overhead Walking Lunge 18lb bar x 1/2 court x 2
- Multi-Directional Reaction 3 x :30sec w/ :15sec rest
- Curl + Press 18lb x 30
- Bicycles 2 x :30sec w/ :15sec rest
1 set of:
- Pushup Walk 1/4 court
I’m not much of a jumper or runner so anything involving running and shuffling isn’t so fun.
The pushup walk was impossible. I tried and fell at least 3 times. I only made it a few feet. Remember when you were little and used to bear walk for fun? Imagine that from a traditional push up position. Fun right?
I must admit that I left this workout a little defeated. But, I’ll be right back at it next week.
