Light leg workout and more kale adventures

8 Apr

Well I made it to physical therapy today and sounds like all the core exercises I’ve been doing since last week have helped. After PT I went to the gym and did a (very) light leg workout, focusing on keeping good form and my core tight.

Warm-up:

  • 20 body weight squats
  • 12 lunges/leg

Image2 sets:

  • 12 BOSU lunges/leg
  • 20 squats with ball toss
  • 12 sumo squats with calf raises

2 sets:

  • 12 deadlifts
  • 12 kneeling hip extension/leg
  • 1 min wall sit

2 sets:

  • 12 lunges/leg
  • 12 stability ball knee tucks

Then I stretched out and did stability drills.

After my workout I made another Kale smoothie using chocolate protein powder for the first time, once again pleasantly surprised 🙂

Blend until smooth:

  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 C Greek Honey yogurt
  • 1 C almond milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 C kale

To workout or not workout… the great debate

I’ve been sick… room spinning, sore throat, body aches, tea and vitamin C sick. I even had to call out of work yesterday which I hate doing because I feel like I let people down. Today I tried taking sudafed to help with the vertigo which worked fairly well…until I decided since the room wasn’t spinning as much I could try to sweat it out with a light workout. Not my best idea. I feel like it’s a fine line between a workout helping and a workout making things 100 times worse… what do you think?

Not my image, I found this on Google

Since I did go, here was the light workout:

3 sets:

  • 20 Bosu toe-taps/foot
  • 20 Bosu side to side jumps/foot
  • 12 Bosu push-ups
  • 15 Squats
  • 10 squats with ball toss
  • 15 stability ball leg pull-ins

3 sets:

  • 12 stability ball hamstring curls
  • 15 weighted crunches on stability ball

2 sets:

  • 15 crazy Ivans

20 easy minutes on the bike and then I stretched out. Like I said, not my best idea.
