Target the upper body with this superset upper body workout. You will work opposing muscle groups, targeting all muscles in your upper body.
Last week was a pretty good week fitness wise. Here’s a look!
Tuesday: Did a HIIT for 30 minutes. I have gotten so used to running at a steady pace that I forgot how much I love High Intensity! It leaves me feeling amazing the rest of the day. I’m not exactly sure what I did this day (forgot to write it down!) but I know I completed 3.7 miles when I finished.
Wednesday: Taught Interval Sculpt. I might be switching times at work in the new year, which would be fun. It depends when a new girl can take over a certain class. This interval sculpt followed a 3-2-1 format. We did 3 strength moves, 2 cardio moves, 1 core move. I had a few newcomers and they loved it! It’s always great to get new people to have fun with the work out.
Thursday: Ran 4 miles in 33:36. I actually wasn’t going to wake up and get it in. I thought about turning off my alarm, but ultimately decided Aaron’s alarm would be waking me up in 10 minutes and keep going off, so might as well go run. I felt great on this run! It was one where everything clicked and I enjoyed it all. Love those ones!
Friday: Woke up and did Speed 3.0 from T25 and some Kettlebell exercises after. I forgot how hard T25 is! Wow my legs were on fire with all the jumping.
Saturday: Woke up feeling miserable. It was the worst I’ve felt since having my sore throat and just let it go. I didn’t have any desire to run, either, so I just didn’t.
Sunday: Thought I might get a workout in, but I could tell my body just needed to rest.
Monday: Taught Bodysculpt. We did 3 exercises, first round 1 minute, second for 45 second, and third for 30 seconds. We did a cardio move before beginning another circuit. Left a sweaty mess! I’m already excited for my Christmas themed workouts coming up next week!
Total Miles for 2014: 643.26 miles
And now for the workout!
