The no pass out workout!

Today I met my trainer friend for another round of near-pass out strength training, only this time, I did not at any point feel like I was going to pass out!

In case you missed it, here are the two occasions this nearly happened to me: first and second.

Today I paid much more attention to my body and I was prepared! I had a full water bottle, plus a 20 oz VitaminWater 10 (10 cals per serving) and a towel to wipe off my sweat. Then, while we were exercising, each time we moved around the room, I adjusted the fan so that it was pointing in my direction the entire time! This is easy to do because its a small room which is also why it gets so hot in there and I nearly pass out, haha.

So today was a major success! Water + Electrolytes + circulating air + towel = No pass out workout!

Here is most of what we did (in random as I remember it order):

5 minute warm up on treadmill (1 minute walking, 4 minutes jogging); 6 minutes in between circuits (5.0, 6.0, 5.0, 6.0, 5.0 and walk for 1 min); cool down 5 minutes (jog, walk, jog, walk, jog 1 minute intervals).

Plie Squats w/ dumbbell

Chest presses (2 sets, one with dumbbells, other with weight bar)

Shoulder presses (several variations)

Bicep curls

Tricep extensions (2 sets, 1 with dumbbell and 1 with bar)

Dips on the bench

Toe touch crunches with 10 lb dumbbell in hands

Rocking horse (ab exercise)

Bridges with legs extended on a balance ball

Back extensions on bench

Lying down leg lifts

One arm rows using weight bar (pulled like a lever)

Dead lifts with bar

Plank (held for 1 minute)

That’s about all I can remember right now!

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday, I’m very much looking forward to girl’s night potluck tonight and getting closer to the Memorial Day weekend! Anyone have any great plans?
