7 days to go with my challenge. MUST finish strong.

Friday, July 13, 2012

I was tired today but I got it done, that is all that matters :) Tomorrow is Core/Cardio Circuit then Sunday will be my next ST day. One week from today we leave, I am starting to get really excited as I pack and shop for more outfits. My shopping trips are just so different that the last time I was preparing to visit this region of the Mediterranean and I was so very overweight. Some times it does not even feel real. Anyways, I need to just stay strong these next few days. My workouts and diet are really producing fabulous results.

New Totals for July - Day 13
Miles - 57.38
Push ups - 1,550
Squats - 2,207

1. Alternating DB curls with 30 lb Db's - Set 1 - 10 reps. Set 2 - 12 reps and Set 3 - 6 reps..I was leaning back on the 6th rep...bad form - not good so I stopped. I want it to be a curl not a swing!
2. TRX - Y's - 50 reps....these were crazy hard for me today. My back was burning
3. DB Squat press - 30 reps with 20 lb Db's
4. TRX - Tricep Extensions - 50 reps
5. MB Jump Squat to overhead press - 30 reps with 12 lb MB
6. Two arm front raise with squat - 50 reps with 10 lb DB's
7. TRX Inverted Row - 50 reps
8. Lateral raise with squat and lateral leg raise - 25 reps for each side - 50 reps total using 10 lb Db's
9. Pushups - Standard military - 100 reps
10. Two arm bicep curl to overhead press - 20 reps using 20 lb Db's then dropping the weight to 10 lb 11. Db's for another 30 reps - 50 reps total
12. 3 sets of 21's with 10 lb Db's
13. DB cross body punches with static sumo squat - 100 reps using 10 lb Db's

Treadmill Intervals - 5 km, 37:58 mins
Running 3% and 5% @ 8.0 - 11.0 kph
Walking 6% - 15% @ 6.5 - 7.5 kph while lifting 5 lb Db's...curling, punching and overhead press.

I am happy to say that I did run one interval with the Db's but it was only at 3% incline and at 8.5 kph. I was punching with the 5 lb Db's while running and I have to say I felt like Rocky in that brief moment in time!
