Almost Friday! Wahoo!

6 Jan

My past two days have been pretty uneventful, but here is a recap of Wednesday and today!

Wednesday Eats

  • Breakfast- Peanut Butter Deli Thin (were still out of Ezekiel) with a 1/2 Cup of Black Coffee
  • AM Snack-  Strawberry Chobani and Walnuts
  • Lunch-  Whey Protein Shake
  • PM Snack-  Natural Burrito and a Chicken Sausage
  • Dinner-  I wasn’t hungry since I had a huge late PM snack.

Wednesday workout was 45 minutes on the treadmill running at 6.6 for most of the time.

Since I didn’t post the Wednesday Workout of the Week, here it is!  Let me know if you try it out and like it!  You should be pretty sore the following day!  I love doing strength training in circuits, I burn so many more calories and get great gains!

Circuit #1

  • Shoulder Press
  • Lateral Raise
  • Rear Delt Flies
  • Ceiling Punches (palms facing the ears)
  • Squats

Circuit #2

  • Stationary Lunges with HEAVY weights
  • Plie Squats
  • Push Ups
  • Chest Press
  • Chest Fly

Circuit #3

  • Lat Pull Down
  • Back Extension
  • Straight Bar Pull Down
  • Walking Lunge
  • Calf Raises on Leg Press

Circuit #4

  • Straight Arm Plank
  • Leg Lifts
  • Bicycle Crunches (1 side at a time)
  • Superman 5 sets of holding 10 seconds
  • High Leg Crunches

Complete each circuit 2-3 times with 8-15 reps before moving onto the next circuit.  Remember, talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise program!  : )

Question:  What is your favorite strength training exercise for your legs?  Mine would be squats and deadlifts as a tie!  I love them both!
