Because I seem to be everywhere but here...

So this is the plan for the new "season" (fall)

Sunday: Rock Climbing/Silks (both?)
Monday: Lunchtime lifts and Belly Dancing
Tuesday: Rock Climbing/Silks (not sure which silks class I'll take)
Wednesday: Lunchtime lifts (and Foos... not really exercise :P)
Thursday: Rock Climbing (you'll see why in a second...)
Friday: BALLET! WOO! I totally found a school near where I *hope* I will soon be living/very near my work that offers Ballet classes (Royal Academy, for Adult beginners??) for about $12 a pop. WHAT?? SO MANY HAPPIES!

So... *whew*

Also: I have (apparently) committed to doing the Spartan Race again next year... so I'm using my warmups (as previously discussed) for my lunchtime lifts as hill training (minimum L5 incline... bumping it up to L6 this week) rather than worrying about speed.

Lunchtime lift program:
Incline 6 on treadmill. Spend 1 min @3.2 mph. Increase every 30 seconds thereafter by 0.2 mph (begin jogging at 4.0 mph). After 30 seconds @5 mph, drop back down to 3.2 mph, rinse, and repeat.
Set up circuit: Barbells at 155 lbs (this week's attempt). Dumbbells of 25 lbs each in open space. Smith's machine locked at waist-height.
Circuit (x4)
5 deadlifts
5 pushups (on dumbbells, on toes... no cheating!)
5 squats with dumbells (no squat rack, only a Smith's Machine, so dumbbells it is!)
5 "chin-ups"
5 "pull-ups"
Rinse, repeat.

Ready to go? I am! (I hope)

    That's emoticon . You're going to have that million dollar feeling in no time. I like how everything is focused around the whole body. Great plan! Keep up the super workout mentality. emoticon

    What a grueling schedule or so it sounds to me. You must have some energy stores somewhere. Have fun.
