This is what Trainer told me at the end of todays workout. He said that this was the best workout we had together. I looked at him and said "really?"
It wasn't exactly together as today I tried the small group workout. It was myself and two other women and this is what we did:
Each of the follow exercises were 21 reps, rest, 15 reps, rest, 9 reps.
Dumbell Squats (I had two 12.5lb weights)
Dumbell Lifts - 2x 12.5 weights
Dumbell swings - 12.5lbs
Push ups (on the floor)
Hill Climbers (per leg)
We were each doing the above at the same time, the below were stations so each of us was doing a different exercise but same reps as above.
Wall Ball (squat down holding a medicine ball and fling it high so it bounces off the wall and you catch it)
Then he set up 3 stations:
Reclined chest press (25lbs)
Skull crusher on the floor with your legs off the floor
Staggered bicep curl
We had to each exercise for 8 sets 30 seconds as many reps as you could. 10 seconds rest between each set.
My arms were dying by the end of this. It was a good workout that's for sure. I definitely felt like I was working. Sweat dripping off and I was pretty flushed.
Working with the others did keep me inspired to keep going. Both of the other women were super skinny so I felt a little intimidated at first but he adjusted the weight for each person. I found that when I was ready for a break I'd look over at one of them and just keep going.
So on Monday I'll go at 4:30 again and meet up with the group. What I like about this too is he said I can come Mon, Wed or Thurs at 4:30 and he'd like to see me twice a week. Mon and Thurs were my workout days anyway. But at the end of each month I have to go to Fort McMurray on a Thurs so now atleast I have a standard alternate day.
I got there early and he told me to hop on a bike, instead I hit the treadmill. These treadmills are fancy shmancy. As you walk/ run it shows a dot going around a track. I noticed you could plus in the cord of your Ipod so I wonder if it charges it. There's a tv on each one too.
Alright kids I'm off to a hot bath and tomorrow it's the psychic.......I'll share I promise :)
