Hey everyone, how are we on this nice Tuesday? I had a pretty good Monday. I slept in instead of working out (went to sleep Sunday with my knee bothering me), had my mom come visit me after work and got to catch up some more with her, and hung out on the couch for the night! Honestly, the fall temps are back, and it is perfect! I love just relaxing with some hot chocolate in my hand and fall scents all around! Not to mention being so productive at my new desk This actually brings me to…
I feel a bit guilty when I spend so much time on my computer after Aaron is done working. Truth be told, it takes a lot of time to blog, write posts, keep up with others, comment, share, etc. Most times I don’t even get on Facebook or Twitter like I want, let alone fix up some things on my blog. However, yesterday I took the time and spent it fixing up my about me sidebar! I know this isn’t such a big deal, but I love the outcome of it, and knowing I took time to work on something for me; not catching up with other people or other blogs! With that being said, I also tried changing my Gravatar image, but it doesn’t seem to be showing up? Anyone know how to fix that? I also fixed my workout log, and started working some more on the recipe page! Can you tell I treated myself to my blog? Not such a bad thing, right?
This week’s workout focuses on the upper body. Personally, I like to train upper body twice a week, and lower body once. Most upper body workouts are split into different target groups, but this week’s workout isn’t. I decided to work them all, and work them all it does! My arms were dead by the end!
For this workout, choose your cardio of choice. You could switch it up for each of the cardio bursts, too, with different machines. I completed this on the elliptical, as I only have that or a treadmill at my parent’s, and I am doing enough running!
For each of the strength exercises, you do each for 45 seconds and rest for 15 seconds. I only did each set once before moving on to the circuit. You could do them more, but I chose a heavy weight so 45 seconds of each exercise exhausted them. Each set of strength exercises are broken into biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, and back exercises so you tone them all! Also, feel free to use a dumbbell for the kettlebell swing! I know not everyone has those!
As always, let me know if you have any questions! Feel free to sub a different exercise in for one should you need to!
Can anyone help with my Gravatar lost image? It actually seems to be missing just be when I’m required to sign in to post?
