My hamstrings are still KILLING ME from Tuesday’s workout, so this Upper Body Day has a little less cardio/legs than it normally would. Normally, I would keep a lot of leg stuff in there, just to keep my heartrate at a good clip, but my legs are dying. I will definitely be working in a good long stretch at the end of today’s workout!
You might notice I’ve kept it a bit basic. Two reasons. First, I didn’t have as much time as usual to get all creative today. That’s ok though — it’s good to know I can come up with a pretty decent set of circuits on the fly. And second, it’s Friday! I want to kill this workout, go home to shower and eat, then out for an awesome show at our local comedy club!
Circuit 1 (four times)
- bench press, 65lbs (x10)
- wide-grip lat pulls, 60 lbs? (x15)
- inclined sit-ups with arms above your head (x15)
Circuit 2 (four times)
- squat + shoulder press, two 10-lb dumbbells (x10)
- body ball pikes (x10)
- hold a superman pose — lower back (30s)
- plank (30 s)
Circuit 3 (four times)
- jumping pull-ups (x6)
- tricep dips (x15)
- lateral raises (shoulders), two 8-lb dumbbells (x10)
P.S. Everyone wish Kara good luck! She’s moving tomorrow — with a little help from some friends. 😉
