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!
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)
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?
