Last Thursday, I made sure to get in my strength training workout with Jen and my partner in crime before I headed to Baltimore on Friday.  It turned out great since I did mostly walking as activity while I was gone.

I warmed up on a bike for just a few minutes before the workout.

2 sets of the following:

  • Band Lateral Walk + Squat 10lb x length of gym
  • Slider Lateral Lunges x 20ea leg
  • Slider Hamstring Curls (attempt)/bridge hold
    • I really need to work on my hamstrings.  They were sore for days after only “attempting” this exercise.  Both of my legs cramped up just trying it.  Yikes.
  • Kettlebell Swing + Lateral Walk 20lb x 20
  • Scull Crushers + Chest Press 15lb x 20ea
  • Lat. Pulldown 70lb x 20
    • I upped the weight from 50 to 70 on the first set.  I regretted it for a few days.  I only did 50 or 60 on the second set.  The actual lat. pull down wasn’t bad, but when you start combining other arm exercises, it really ups the intensity.
  • Lying Cable Chest Press on ball 20lb x 15ea
  • Ball Push Crunch 2x5lb x 20
  • Bench Plank :30 x 3
  • Wall Ball Squat w/ Press 8lb x 20
  • Birddog on ball x 30ea side

I’m still really enjoying these workouts.  Jen always amazes me with the new things we try each week.  No two workouts are ever the same.
