Workout- week 8 in review

I found out this week (from 4square) that this was my 8th week in a row working out at the gym. By now I had hoped to see results. But that’s a story for another time.

This week’s plan:
Monday- non specific cardio
Tuesday- spinning
Wednesday-spinning
Thursday-rest day
Friday-spinning
Saturday-spinning
Sunday-spinning

This week’s reality:
Monday- short walk
Tuesday- 30 minutes spinning & box fit
Wednesday-65 minutes spinning
Thursday-rest day
Friday-bad headache day/quick walk to uni
Saturday-45 minutes weight training
Sunday-spinning (planned)

Friday was a bad pain day, so I knew spinning was out. Today, I wasn’t really feeling it either, but Steph and I decided to go and do weights, which I hadn’t done in a week. (I was taking it easy with my back being sore earlier in the week.) It was a really good workout and I can definitely feel it!

I did:
Barbell Squat:
20 kg x 5 reps
20 kg x 5 reps
25 kg x 5 reps
30 kg x 3 reps
42.5 kg x 2 reps
50 kg x 5 reps
50 kg x 5 reps
50 kg x 5 reps

Barbell Bench Press:
20 kg x 5 reps
20 kg x 5 reps
25 kg x 5 reps
27.5 kg x 3 reps
30 kg x 2 reps
32.5 kg x 5 reps
32.5 kg x 5 reps
32.5 kg x 5 reps

Barbell Deadlift:
25 kg x 5 reps
25 kg x 5 reps
30 kg x 3 reps
35 kg x 3 reps
45 kg x 2 reps
60 kg x 5 reps

I’ve also signed up to be a Fitfluential Enthusiast. I am not sure I’d be accepted as an ambassador, so I figured I’d start out small. I look forward to finding out new ways to be a better blogger and fitness enthusiast!

I also had a delicious dinner of baked salmon, risotto rice, and broccoli. 🙂 (Some of the salmon was shared with Molly.)

Tomorrow I will be posting next weeks workout plan and talking about the weight loss program at the gym that Steph and I will be starting.
