The Week in Review - The Goddess Returns to Yoga
On Monday I hit the fitness trail with M -- who loved my hair color and enjoyed feeling the muscles in my back!
On Tuesday morning Adam had me work on balance as well as strength:
5-Minute Warm-Up on Treadmill
Kneeling (on bench) Overhead Press: 8/20, 10/15, 12/12, 12/12
One-Arm DB Row: 20/20, 25/15, 35/12, 30/12
TRX Squats: B/20 X 4 sets
DB Curls: 15/12, 12/15
Triceps Extensions: 70/20, 80/15
Shrugs: 45/20, 65/20
I left there feeling quite pumped up and that evening returned to Kripalu Yoga. My friend Jeanne teaches a class at the Seymour Community Center on Tuesday evenings. It has been awhile since I did yoga in a classroom setting, although I have been stretching at home.
There were only a few poses that I could not do so I was pleased with my own efforts and enjoyed the class immensely. I've made a commitment to return every week.
On WEDNESDAY ----- Legs, legs, legs! Today was leg day and man did I work them!
SB Wall Squats: B/15 X 4 Sets
Straight Leg Dead Lifts: 45/20, 65/15. 85/15, 95/12
Leg Extensions: 40/20, 60/15, 70/10. 70/12
Calf Raises: B/15 X 4
Ooooooooooooooooooo, Gumby legs!
OMFG, Adam had me do 45 minutes of calisthenics and isometric strength training. Holy shit, I felt every second of my age in the gym and left there bathed in sweat.
Thursday night J wanted to work out at Planet Fitness so we went for an hour and I mostly worked on shoulders, back and chest
I also had a great weigh in and lost another 3 pounds! Yeah baby
