Workout Fail

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Sometimes you go out with the best of intentions but it is just not your day. And today it was not mine.

I drew a workout from my Stack O' Workouts that was an ab workout. OK, I don't usually do all core but my motto is keep your body guessing! And I thought, well, I hit upper and lower pretty good yesterday so a core workout makes sense.

It had mountain climbers, side plank lifts, and half burpees (in-and-outs). Anyone see a pattern here? Anyone remember what I did yesterday?


Yeah, I didn't think that one through very well. My shoulders are toast from "Heather" yesterday (I named my killer shoulder workout after a friend with killer shoulders). I could NOT do it.

Tried to do some HIIT jump rope but I wasn't feeling that either.

The only productive thing I managed to do was my Bicep Blast workout from the Angry Trainer, which I have been doing a couple times a week after my regular workout to gets those guns armed and ready, haha.

10 hammer curls
10 bicep curls
10 pullups or reverse pushups on dip station

3 sets
Rest 30 seconds between each exercise

This is tougher than it looks and it really works, so if you're looking for a quick little bicep bonus I highly recommend this. Definitely didn't count as a whole workout but hey, whatever. I'm sure tomorrow I'll be ready for something awesome :)

Good night!

    Way to make it work. And oops! I've totally had days like that. Like Sunday, when I assisted in teaching a pole dancing class and then went climbing. After an hour of climbing I was all "WTF, why so tired, bodeh?" and it replied:
    -.- "I hate you."

    Hey, you tried and got some kind of workout in! LOL I can see how burpees and mountain climbers and all that would *not* be ideal the day after working your shoulders so hard...but I still love the idea of drawing your workouts randomly!
