Gettin' my glow on...

Monday night is a gym night, and with the holidays coming I wanted to make sure I got in a really good workout.

I started with some stretching and a light warm-up, then headed for the weights and completed the following upper body workout:

Bent Over Row- 60 lbs for 3 sets of 12
DB Shoulder Press- 20 lbs for 3 sets of 12
Lying Tricep Extensions- 30 lb barbell for 3 sets of 12
Barbell Curls- 40 lbs for 3 sets of 12
Bench Press- 45 lbs for 10 reps, 65 lbs for 10 reps, 75 lbs for 8 reps, 80 lbs for 4 reps, and then reversed back down to just the 45 lbs bar

It sounds like a lot, but it actually is a pretty quick workout. Then I headed over to the treadmill, my mind wasn't feeling the cardio at first but once I got going it felt good. I did the following cardio workout:

2 miles of intervals that were run at 1.0 incline:
1 min @ 4.0mph
1 min @ 6.5mph
1 min @ 4.0mph
2.5 min @ 6.0mph
1 min @ 4.0mph
1 min @ 6.5mph
1 min @ 4.0mph
2.5 min @ 6.0mph
Repeated for a second mile.

Total time was 22 minutes and 10 seconds- that's great for me!

Then as my "cool" down I walked at 10.0 incline @ 4.0mph for 6 minutes then brought it down to no incline for the last 2 minutes of my 30 minute cardio. And believe me that I looked like I had worked out...

Did you get your glow on today???

  1. I got my glow on! I did spin and sweat up a storm. I wasn't even going that intense of course with pregnancy, but I just pour sweat right now. Lovely, I know. It still feels good though.

    And your workout sounded awesome. Not too much to me!
