Another Week of Online Workouts

I am thoroughly enjoying the break from traditional weightlifting workouts.  It has been a breath of fresh air and I am seeing it make a big difference.  My muscle endurance is improving big time.  I still sweat like a fiend during these workouts but I am feeling less like I will die by the end. 😉

Without further ado, here is what I did this week….

MONDAY





TUESDAY






I added a yoga/pilates/stretching routine to two of my workouts because I knew I needed something to really help my full body of stiff muscles.




WEDNESDAY



REST DAY

THURSDAY








FRIDAY



By Friday, I was so tired from a crazy week. Then I had a crazy Friday. All I wanted to do was do some stretching and relaxing. I think I might be getting addicted to these yoga workouts. I’ll have to hunt down some more.





Can you tell I am really enjoying Fitness Blender workouts?????  I highly recommend them for well-rounded workouts that require minimal equipment. 🙂

It was a good week at the gym. All these workouts could have been done at home. I chose to go to the gym because my son loves seeing his friend in the children’s room. I would just find a corner in the adult gym and had fun. Two weeks into these bodyweight workouts and I know that I’m enjoying the difference. I already see improvements in my muscle endurance.

Have you done any of these workouts??

This Week’s Online Workouts

Since I am focusing my workouts on body-weight type workouts, or calisthenics,  I thought I might share with you what I am doing so you can follow along too if you want to.  I am mostly doing YouTube videos.  Did you know that YouTube is a treasure trove of FREE and FULL workouts??  It is true.  Just do a search and tons will come up. It is absolutely perfect for days you can’t make it to the gym or you just need to mix things up.

Okay, onward with the week.  I will go ahead and say that it was kind of anti-climatic.  I got sick with a nasty cold that I think I caught from my wonderful sharing son and that really messed up my mojo and my plans.

 

MONDAY

 

 

Monday was my first day back after taking a whole week off from workouts.  So, I figured I would do my “benchmark” workout which is the MURPH WOD.  It is a Crossfit workout.  I like to do it every couple of months or so to get a feel for how my training is going.
 

Here is the breakdown:

1 mile run

100 pullups

200 pushups

300 squats

1 mile run

 

I did the pullups on the assisted pullup machine.  I did as many pushups as I could on my toes and then proceeded to my knees.  The squats were not regressed in anyway because they were air squats anyway.  The runs were performed on the treadmill.

It was a TOUGH workout.  I can see now how poorly I am doing in muscle endurance.  And that is why I am focusing on that for a few weeks.

 

TUESDAY

 


 
I do LOVE Zuzana. She was the leading personality of BodyRockTV for a long time and the parted ways to form her own company. She has tons of FREE workouts on YouTube and has recently started the ZGYM, a subscription-based fitness site.

Her workouts are short but very intense. I have never done a workout of hers without literally sweating on the floor. It is awesome and I highly recommend her. Most of her workouts require no equipment, just your body.

 

WEDNESDAY

 
My nasty cold was starting to hit me pretty hard on Wednesday. I also was called into work. I worked my shift but ultimately left a little early. And then we came home for school and resting. Then my son had Awana in the evening. So, no workout this today. It was a good thing because I was rapidly getting worse and I was very sore from Monday and Tuesday.
 

THURSDAY

 


 
I do believe Thursday was the height of feeling horrible for me. I never even left the house….not even to check the mailbox. But, I wanted to do something to help stretch and move my muscles. This is all I was able to do. I sniffled and sneezed my way through it. 😉
 

FRIDAY

 
Friday is a bit better in the health department. I plan to go to the gym in the afternoon and either walk on the treadmill or the elliptical. I had grand plans for another awesome body-weight workout but I really don’t want to push it and make myself worse. I figure even a leisurely walk is better than nothing and gets me heading in the right direction.
