Friday the 13th, Conditioning, and a Birthday!
Good morning, friends!
Is it just me or have there been a LOT of Friday the 13th’s lately? Maybe I’m just noticing them more? Anyways, I kind of like it. 🙂
This morning I rolled out of bed to do some conditioning. It is sooo hard for me to get out of bed to workout these days. I can’t believe I used to work out at 5am every day! I’m sure if I tried, I could get back in that routine, but I actually really like my afternoon/evening weight lifting sessions too! Ah, getting older.
Speaking of getting older, I celebrated my 27th birthday on Tuesday. It was actually one of the best birthdays I’ve had in a while. I have the best friends, family, boyfriend and co-workers anyone could ask for. They made me feel super special!
- Pull Ups
- T-Bar Rows
- Cable Rows
- Straight Arm Pulldowns
- Close Grip Pulldowns
It’s funny how simple things become much more fulfilling as you get older. I couldn’t think of a single gift I wanted this year, but just wanted to spend my day with the people (and furry creatures) I love, doing what I love…and I got just that!
Anyways, back to today.
Here’s what I did for my conditioning:
KB Clean & Snatch Combo (4 sets of 8 reps each)
Barbell Complex (4 sets)
I’ll have a full post on barbell complexes in the next week. They are a GREAT way to get the heart rate up without having to do standard cardio. Stay tuned!
I’ve got a bunch of work to do today (it seems to just keep piling on), and then I’m headed to the studio tonight to set up for an all-day session tomorrow. It should be fun!
I’m really looking forward to Sunday to just relax a bit. I’m hoping to get a hike and/or leg workout in and then just lounge around the rest of the day. Sounds like a perfect day to me! 🙂
In the works…
-I’ve got a few ebooks I’m working on at the moment that I can’t wait to release! Details to come soon!
Q: Do you hate the #13? Love it?
I love it!! I guess that’s the “metal” in me. 🙂
