Weekly Workout Recap

I am so glad you guys liked the podcast with Lindsay and our confessions! I’ll have to do more of those in the future. I also want to say thanks to those of you who sent me sweet messages in regards to my stresses right now. I’m sure it seems as if I am leaving you in the dark, but know how grateful I am.

I will say this… if anyone is in the process of setting up their own business and looking for a credit card processing (merchant) company… talk to me first.

Things are already turning around and I have a feeling February will be fantastic! The sun is shining, we’ve had beautiful weather and each day is a new opportunity to move forward. Cheesy? Perhaps… but sometimes we all need cheesy in our lives.

Okay, since that is off my chest, let’s talk fitness.

This week was a awesome week of training!

Let’s see what went down:

Monday: Muscle Monday

Alex and I got back to lifting heavy. It had been a while and we both felt it the next day!

15 Pull-Ups
15 BB Squats (95 lb)
15 Squat Jumps
400 M Run
12 Pull-Ups
12 Squats
12 Box Jumps
400 M Run
9 Pull-Ups

9 Burpees
400 M Run
6 Pull-Ups

400M Run
3 Pull-Ups
3 Squats
3 Double Burpees

Then 6 Sets of 3 Reps: 
Deadlifts #185
Muscle Up Kipping (Alex did BB Squats)

We also had some fun with partner deadlifts and burpees!

Tuesday: Speed Builder & KB Fun

Speed workouts are officially a weekly occurrence again and I couldn’t be happier. It’s been about a month, so I would say that makes is official, right?

1600 m – 1200 m – 800 m – 400 m – 5 x 50 m

After a quick warm-up, we did a mile (1600 m) and worked our way down.

Between each run: 

10 Toes 2 Bar
10 Push-Ups

Since distance went down, I made sure to increase speed with each round. I started with 9.5 on the treadmill) and finished at 10.0 for the 400 m. The 50 m sprints were done outside at FULL speed.

OH… and then I was hyped up on adrenaline and decided to play with my kettlebells for a bit. A new double kettlebell PR happened (you can watch at IG)! BAM!

Wednesday: Freakin 10!

I received this text from Dan regarding “Fit Quickies” for February.

Well then… okay. I used the 100 T2B assignment for workout inspiration and went with:

10 Rounds For Time:

100 Jump Rope
10 T2B
10 Push-Ups
5 Kettlebell Presses/Side (35lb)

Took right around 25 minutes and felt awesome! I was expecting an important email during this time so I definitely stopped to check my phone from time to time but regardless finished in a pile of sweat…

Which of course I had to take a picture and send to my Workout Wifey. It doesn’t count unless you take a picture, duh.

I also did this core finisher.

Thursday: Dan The Man Workout

I wish my name made for catchy titles, lol.

Yesterday, Dan designed and trained Alex and I. It was fun to mix it up and having him on us definitely made for less chit-chat (a good and bad thing!). But we worked hard and had t-rex arms by the end.

5 Rounds:

10 Parallette Kick Through Push-Ups
10 Leg Raises (laying down)

Then… Sled Drag 80-Ft

5 Rounds: 

10 KB Squats (50-lb)
10 Ankle Taps

Sled Drag 80-Ft

5 Rounds: 

10 KB Chest Presses (62-lb)
10 T2B

Sled Drag 80-Ft

3 Rounds: 

10 Parallette Burpees
10 Superwoman Pulses

Thanks Dan!

Friday: No Flexin Friday

Today is a REST day! And I am going to enjoy every moment of it. Especially since tomorrow, my IG friend Emma is coming to Charleston from Savannah and we’re going to be doing A LOT of kettlebell training. Can’t wait.

It’s pretty awesome when internet friends become in person friends! I’m hopping she might be up for a podcast? Emma… yes? Hehe.

Have a great Friday, beautifuls!

XOXO

Tell me about your best workout this week? 

Love working out but want a training partner/coach?
Head over to Fit Womens Weekly to find out how we can train together!

Can I share this real fast? I LOVE hearing feedback and progress from you guys. One of our awesome Fit Women Weekly members recently wrote this and I just had to share: 

“Yesterday was a big eye opener for me.

I started working out again in October 2015 but didn’t discover Body Burn until May 2016. Loved   the workouts and promptly switched over my program. My partner and I worked hard together and I always found the workouts comfortable – I worked hard, enjoyed myself and sometimes “noticed” my muscles a bit the next day, knowing I had worked them. We enjoyed stacking when we could and challenging each other to do more. I lost my workout partner in July and struggled to keep it up on my own but life got in the way and I fell off the wagon in September. Despite my thoughts and plans, I never did start up again until I was thoroughly disgusted with myself 3 months later.

I’ve been on the treadmill and going to the track for the month of January with the intention of getting my running going again and then my Body Burn. Tuesday morning, I completed Cinco (day 1 of the Beginner Plan V2.) Workout completed – I felt good. I knew I worked hard and was proud of myself. Come evening though, my muscles started to feel tight and I started feeling a little concerned – I knew I would be a little sore the next day – but the evening of??? I only worked out for about 10 minutes….

Yesterday I was so sore I didn’t want to move. I think the only muscle group that wasn’t sore was my quads (likely from running this past month). I like that little burn that tells me I did work hard and didn’t wimp out, but yesterday was downright silly. Even snuggling with the Monkey was often uncomfortable. I had a hot shower to help warm up my muscles and did a bunch of stretching, a mobility session and a small walk/job to loosen me up. Today is much better.

I knew this was an awesome program. I knew I was working hard. I guess I didn’t really realize JUST how awesome or how hard I was working (despite the muscle definition I was forming) until I restarted the program cold. Obviously, I was in better shape when I started last time and I lost more than I thought by being “lazy” for three months. This is an Amazing Program and it WORKS! Duly Noted. :)”

Thanks ValMarie!
