I didn’t workout over the weekend, so today was tough. I felt pukish with all the water that i drank between the sets.
Going around the room, jogging, high knees, butt kick, shuffling, and inch worm
3 X 8 Back Squad with 55lb bar + 12 tuck crunches
Power Snatches - some with 35lb bar and some with metal pipe
20 Alternating Squad- some with 35lb bar and some with metal pipe
3 x 6 Alternating Kettle bell swings
3 X 12 Kettle Bell Swings
2 X 18 Box Jump (more like step up the box for me)
I went to class today. Yay!
Since I’ve been doing jump rope, obviously today’s class involved jump rope.
Going around the room jogging, high-knees, butt kick, shuffling, and the dreaded inch worm.
300 Jump Rope
50 push-ups (others did hand stand push-up, but I did knee/mermaid push-up)
40 Tuck Crunch
30 shoulder-to-overhead press @45lbs
90 ft walking lunges in front rack position @35lbs
Guess what? Pouring a bunch of Diet Mountain Dew down your gullet won’t help your weight loss plan one whit.
#5. Diet Soda Helps You Lose Weight
Scientists noticed a strange trend: People who drink diet soda do not in fact lose any weight. They reason appears to have something to do with how your body processes sugar.
You see, with the exception of one organ in particular, your body is kind of a dumbass. That’s why, when you wash down your meal with a half-gallon of fake sweetness, your gut is all “Dur, sugar!” and tells your pancreas to get all revved up to process said shitload of sugar. Because your pancreas is not the sharpest tool in the shed, it starts cranking out insulin. This is a problem, since there is, in fact, no shitload of sugar to process.
Yup, I got my diet tips from Cracked.com
I had planned to go to my fitness class today. Alas, that didn’t happen. So, I jumped rope 250 times in one session. I tried to do 20 reps at once, and a few times I managed to do more. Yet, a few other times, I couldn’t even do 10 reps. Oh well…
Note to self: Go to class tomorrow.
I am still figuring out a nice workout plan for the day that I don’t have any fitness class. But all of the at-home workouts that I found seem like a lot of work. I mean we are talking Jumping Jack, Squat Jump, Mount Climber, and variation of those. So, I think I will stick with jump rope for now (provided that I don’t have sore legs from my fitness class).
Anywhere, here are what I did today:
