Day Nine: Chest & Back
Friday, June 28, 2013
Day 9: Chest & Back (63 minutes) - I enjoy this workout. I still get annoyed by the instructor, but now just tune her out and focus on the work. Last week I felt a bit sore the next day, so I'm expecting that again. I guess the reason this workout is good is because you do the basic exercises with enough reps and then enough sets that it breaks down the muscle to be effective. I also use the exercise ball on this one, and I like using the ball!
I also did some other lunges, leg lifts, bicep curls, triceps kickbacks, and plank holds just to round it all out.
I have learned a lesson here, though, yet again! I didn't have time in the morning to do my workout, so I planned to do it at lunchtime at work. I kept getting interrupted, and the exercise was pushed and pushed. I finally got it all done about 6 P.M. - still at work - but it was tough to squeeze it in. I have to remember to just wake up super early if I want to get my exercise in. Otherwise, I find that it's too hard for me to get it done. I almost skipped the workout because of the stress of trying to squeeze it in, but I felt committed in doing it, thank goodness!
