Workout and Such

21 Jun

I finally have time to post a workout! I had to get up early for physical therapy, which ended up taking a really long time, and then got a workout in so I can write while I ice my ankle 🙂

I realized that in Japan I was def. adding strength but wasn’t really seeing any more definition or weight loss or… physical gains I guess. I keep meaning to take pictures and restart the progress pictures/updates but, keep forgetting… I will try to do that soon. So, I’ve made the decision to get back to more circuit styles and timed workouts. The next month is going to be a lot more traveling and starting a new job so it’s going to be about being effective with the time I have.

On that note… today was a 45 min timed workout focusing on the upper body. It was a little all over the place until I set into a routine but here’s a rough idea:

  • 3 min warm-up
  • 1 min rows
  • 2 min bicep curls
  • 1 min mountain climbers (I did these slowly instead of jumping from foot to foot)
  • 2 min balance drills
  • 30 sec squats
  • 2 min skull crushers
  • 2 min upright row
  • 1 min inch worms
  • 1 min burpees (I modified these a bit for my foot, jumped back but then stepped one foot in at a time)
  • 30 sec rest
  • 1 min inch worms
  • 1 min plank
  • 1 min bicep curls
  • 2 min punches with weights

Then I did this circuit 3 times:

  • 1 min Reverse Flyes
  • 1 min Rows
  • 1 min Skull Crushers
  • 1 min plank with rotation
