Fitness Friday #2

Spread the love

Friday: Pull strength training including legs, back, biceps, and calves. I did really well! Between each set, I would do some lighter exercises that dealt with different muscle groups (still one of the ones I was training) just to keep my heart rate up. I ended up adding in tricep dips for an extra measure as well as some abs and a bunch of extra squats. I also progressed in every muscle group and did a heavier weight than in the start except for biceps. I’m still stuck on 10s for biceps, sigh.

Later on, I also did a short ab routine from The Sweaty Betties.

Saturday: I was going to do Zumba for cardio but I didn’t. I was too tired and I had to go shoot at 3pm which would leave me only 20 minutes to get ready after Zumba and I decided to skip it. I did end up walking a lot that day though although I don’t consider that exercise per se, but I did have movement.

Sunday: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. So lazy, I didn’t even change out of my PJ’s. I woke up very tired from too little sleep (5 hours is not enough for me) which hindered my motivation and self control. I might have eaten too much too. But I’m not sorry. I’m only human. Tomorrow is another day.

Monday: Push strength training including chest, shoulders, triceps, abs. I did well but not as well as I could have. I was also very excited when I woke up because I got my period (it’s been so irregular) but not because I’m afraid of being pregnant (not a chance) but because my previous lazy bum day is excused in my mind now. So I don’t feel like crap 🙂 I improved on shoulders today and lifted a bit heavier than I did last time!

Tuesday: I was feeling lazy again but kicked my butt off the couch and went to the gym for an evening cardio session in which I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, interval mode while reading a new book I got from the library. I really need to get back into the cardio funk. I’ve been wanting to just lazy it out so much lately. Sigh.

Wednesday: In the morning I did a Pull strength training including legs, back, biceps, and calves. I did really well and progressed in each body part by lifting heavier than before! I also included functional rest periods in which I did random bodyweight exercises instead of just standing around between sets, I’ve been diggin’ it – makes me feel like I’m doing a lot better. I love strength training. I just wish I had the same love for cardio…

Later on, I was browsing through Google Reader before my 6p class and saw Fitnessista posted a short booty burner on her blog. I’m a sucker for quickie workouts so I went ahead and did it. It got my heart rate nice and high. Definitely woke me up 🙂

Thursday: Push strength training including chest, shoulders, triceps, abs. I progressed on my triceps this time! Yay! Also, I think I need to start doing a three way split for strength training instead of the two-way push-pull split. I don’t feel like I am working myself hard enough with this split. I took a picture of my arms progress, which I don’t really think look like they’ve progressed very much but oh well. In time, I guess.

Doesn’t one look bigger than the other? I mean, I know you have to really stare to see any muscle, still, but yeah… 

I’m totally loving the quickie workouts that I can do without going to the gym. My dorm apartment is pretty small so I prefer doing some extra stuff in my tiny room, but I am also open to going out in the living room for a short quickie as well, as long as my roommates aren’t home haha.


Questions for you:

  • Do you like quickie workouts?
  • Do you know of any quickie workout videos for me to try out?

  1. Ugh one of my arms is slightly larger than the other, as is one of my legs (calves and thighs). I know others don’t notice it but I do and it drives me crazy! Haha. Your arms are looking good though!!

    • Thanks! yeah, my mom noticed when I had her stare at it haha I’m so lame. But I just really need to focus on dropping fat so you can actually start seeing the muscle more. Sigh.

  2. I prefer to take my time at the gym but sometimes I do squeeze in a quick work-out in my lunch break, so either do some TRX exercises in circuit or barbell metabolic circuit -3-4 rounds with 10 min treadmill warm-up and 5 min stetching and I am done.
