Exhaustion sets in…..
I’m running on about 2.5 hours of sleep so if something doesn’t make sense, just forget abahhhht it. 🙂
It’s finally hitting me. The exhaustion has caught up and I am ready for a few days of absolute nothingness.
This week is going by SO slowly, yet I’ve done SO MUCH.
Between Monday through today I’ve done:
6.5 hours of cardio
About 4 hours of weight training
6.5 hours of class
13 hours of work at the gym
7 hours of work at home
1 hour of posing practice
8 hours of homework
Lots of errands and tying up loose ends with a few things
Needless to say, I’m TIREDDDDDD!
All of that with a contest diet really takes a toll on the body. I couldn’t sleep last night for no reason at all, and had to wake up and open the gym today. I get to sleep in tomorrow, and you can bet that all electronics will be in the OFF position until I choose to turn them back on. 7 weeks from tomorrow is stage time…..body is doing what it needs to. I lost another 2 inches in my legs, 2 inches in my butt, waist and arms stayed the same. My upper body is really coming together and just needs a little more work and the lower body has finally joined in, but still needs more work.
Upper Body Workout
This was hard, but a really fun workout for me.
T-Bar Row – Burpees – Assisted Chin Ups – Med. ball mountain climbers (3 sets)
Pushups – Bench dips – Jumping jacks – pec deck – OH DB Extension (3 sets)
DB Military Press – Rear delt raise – kettle bell swings – lateral raises – front raises (3 sets)
My reps were at 15-20 for each lifting exercise. Plyos/cardio intervals varied.
LOVED this workout. Pretty quick and left me pretty wiped.
