Today is my last official day in the gym this week. Right now my plan is to get there and workout four days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday. If I happen to do something on Saturday then bonus points (like tomorrow, I'm
As part of my membership I got one free session with the personal trainers there. They suggest some functional training in your routine. That's what I'm working in on Fridays. Not only do I want to lift and get toned and strong, but I want my muscles to work. I pick up two kids daily. Most of the time, they want held at the same time. That's 26.5 pounds for one and 28.5 pounds for the other. My upper body needs to work.
I run around a lot. Two little kids mean that I'm not quite sedentary. Whoever said a stay-at-home-mom (#SAHM) did nothing, was an idiot. PREACH. Side story: I found myself chasing my son around one afternoon trying to put his coat on. I was crouched down, holding out his jacket, almost like I was doing a squat run. I went about three times around the house before I came to my senses and stopped chasing. He laughed. I foam rolled. Hence needing my muscles to work.
I killed myself today. Enter gym. Drop kids off. Spend 10 minutes doing 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off of stair climber sprint intervals. Heavy breath. Pant. Wheeze. Catch my drool before it hits the floor. Get dizzy. Continue with the pictured exercises below. Pant. Wheeze. Proceed to 15 minutes of iron yoga, which was intended to be a stretch. No. More weights, more weights! Heavy breath. Dizziness. Savasana. Death.
Curious what these exercises really look like? Ask!
Interested in my iron yoga flow?
It's all yours ... with strings, of course.
