Who you may ask? My "wellness coach", as she is called by my gym.
Last week, she nearly broke my heart. I had a fitness assessment and lets just say I have a lot of work to do. I am at a "healthy" BMI, but barely.
I feel like my metabolism has hit a wall - any other women in their mid-twenties feel this way?
Today she gave me a workout to do 3 times a week for the next 4 weeks. Then I have a different workout for the next 4 weeks, and a different one the 4 weeks after that. Once those 12 weeks are done, I rotate the three workouts, three times a week.
After one night, I am already so sore.
Here's the workout:
Balance, Stability, Core (3x week, 1-3 sets, 12-15 reps, moderate rest period)
Total Body - medicine ball diagonals
Legs - squats on Bosu
Chest - DB chest press on stability ball
Legs - lunges with front foot on blue balance pad
Back - standing row (on core board or on one leg)
Legs - side lunge to balance
Shoulders - DB overhead press standing on Bosu
Legs - Single leg squat
Biceps - DB curls standing on one leg
Legs - hamstring curls with stability ball
Triceps - DB kickback w/ one knee on soft side of Bosu
Abs - plank - lifting arm/leg
No wonder I'm tired! Between this regime 3 times a week and training for my 5k on October 3rd (did I mention I'm running the Race for the Cure?) I should start to get in shape!
How did you stay motivated to workout post-wedding?
(PS: There will be more wedding recaps coming - sorry they are so sporadic!)
