Good morning friends!
How’s your Monday treating you so far? Mine’s been pretty productive so far, so I’m trying to continue on that wave. I have soooooo much to do this week (a few writing projects + regular work), so I’m trying to keep myself on track to finish it all.
I started my morning with a track workout that knocked me on my ass.
I seriously could barely walk afterwards. My legs were shaking and all I could think about was taking an ice bath.
Side note: If taking an ice bath sounds like a GOOD thing…you’ve officially kicked your own ass.
After the workout, I grabbed a coffee from my favorite place (it made my legs feel better, I swear), took a shower, iced my legs (because I didn’t have enough ice for a legitimate ice bath), and made breakfast.
I’ve been on the same kick lately: 1 egg, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1 slice of Ezekiel bread, and shredded cheese.
It’s so delicious and satisfying that I just can’t steer away from it yet! I’m sure in time I’ll get sick of it, but until then…it’s my go-to!
Yesterday I did a leg workout that also got me pretty good.
I started with heavy squats (3 sets of 1-5 reps). Here were my numbers:
Set 1: 145 x 5
Set 2: 155 x 4
Set 3: 165 x 3
I haven’t squatted heavy in about 2 weeks, so I didn’t really try to push it too hard. I plan on hitting legs again later this week, so I may try to go heavier then.
The rest of my leg workout:
Deadlifts: 135 x 12, 145 x 12, 155 x 10
Walking Lunges: 50 x 15, 50 x 15
45* Hypers: 10 x 30, 10 x 30
Banded Hip Abductions: 10 reps leaning forward, 10 reps neutral, 10 reps leaning back for a total of 2 sets
1. Do you take ice baths? Have you ever?
2. What’s your go-to breakfast? (Maybe it will help me break out of my rut)
