Back At It ...

While searching for a photo for this post I came across this one and it made me smile. Shout out to Snoop.

I finally made it back to the gym after I don’t know how long. No excuses - I just haven’t been motivated to leave my bed at 4:30am. However, lately I’ve been feeling guilty and I’m just sick of myself. So I got up on Wednesday morning, after laying out my gym clothes the night before, and took my butt to the gym. I have never, ever regretted a workout and today was no different.

I’ve discovered that all the motivational clichés that I use on my clients just weren't working for me. The only one that worked was:

Anyway, I trained legs and here’s a summary of my actual workout:

  • 7 minutes on the Stairmaster

  • Superset: weighted walking lunges (3 sets of 20) with curtsy lunges (20 each side)

  • Superset: back squats (4 sets of 8, 135lbs) with air squats (4 sets of 15) with a resistance band

  • Superset: stiff legged deadlifts (3 sets of 10) with step ups (3 sets of 10 on each leg)

  • Abductor: 3 sets of 21

My workouts are changing because I’m no longer training for the stage. Just for life. I don’t want my quads to get any bigger but I want to keep my glutes firm and if they get bigger in the process that is okay with me.

I’m going to get my new running shoes this weekend and I plan to have my first training run on Saturday. This is a test to see how serious I am about running in the cold in preparation for this half marathon... it's supposed to be in the 40s on Saturday. We'll see.
