Workout 1 - Morning Fasting Cardio on tread - 20 mins - alternating 3,6,9 and 12% inclines @7.0 kph while holding 5 lb DB's and doing shoulder presses, front raise, punches etc...anything to get my HR up and increase my burn

4. Plank lateral raise using 5 lb DB's - 50 reps....this was the hardest for me. Killer. Hold a high plank with 5 lb DB's and instead of a row you lift your arm out for lateral raise and alternate each arm with still in a high plank - MUST do these over and over......I really loved it.

This weekend I really hit the weights hard and I have to say I LOVED IT!! Here are my results from Saturday........

ST workout 1 - 25 mins

Squat press using one 30 lb DB - 200 reps!! My highest ever with a 30 lb DB...amazing cardio effect with this! I was so tired.

Standard military push ups - 200 reps

Medicine ball chops with sumo squat - 200 reps holding a 12 lb MB

I was drenched in sweat, and it is not even hot here in Norway :) It really was a tremendous workout just short of 25 mins

ST workout 2 - 30 mins

Two arm bicep curls with sumo squats using 20 lb DB's - 100 reps. My highest ever using 20's in each hand and curling both arms together.

Diamond push ups ( no knees) - 100 reps

Medicine ball standing crunch with leg raise and twist - 100 reps for each side holding a 12 lb MB

TRX wide rows - 70 reps...aiming for 100 but I burned out so I switch to a low row for the remaining 30 reps - 100 TRX reps total

One arm DB bent over rows - 3 x 15 reps for each side using one 30 lb DB

I finished this ST set with a good 20 min walk on the tread holding 5 lb DB's and doing shoulder presses, front raises etc....throughout the walk. Total distance 2.2 km

    Made me exhausted just reading it! :-) Now I'm just curious...b/c I know you have a little girl, not in school yet? I'm assuming you are a stay at home mom (I am). I see you include her on some walks &/or runs but what about the other 2-3 workouts each day? I have 3 young kids and so that is why my mind goes to wondering how you are fitting it in with a child at home? I just can't imagine getting those kind of breaks (duration wise) to concentrate on a workout. (I workout daily 75 min. at 5:00am while mine are still sleeping but anything later in the day they would be "there" for.) Maybe you fit it in during naps? Mine don't nap anymore so I lost that option. But my youngest 2 are going into 1st grade in the fall so huge changes and options coming for me! :-) Just curious how you do it Jen!!
