Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend, I’m writing this ahead of time, so I don’t know if I am or not! Ha, let’s hope so. Anyway, this weekend was the end of week 2 (of 8) of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, and the end of the first of four phases! I liked this phase a lot because we did a lot with dumbells, which is helpful for balancing out each side. I also loved workout C, which was about building balanced leg strength (something I really need to work on!).
Alright, let’s take a look at last week’s workouts. I didn’t workout on Sunday, so a few days got shifted around:
Sunday Monday – Workout A (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio
Monday Tuesday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)
Tuesday Wednesday – Workout B (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio
Wednesday Thursday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)
Thursday – ZUMBA! 50 minutes elliptical and incline walking…
Friday – REST DAY Workout C + 10 min elliptical + 10 min rowing
Saturday – Muddy Monk 10K! 50 minutes easy elliptical/biking/walking
As you can see above I had to back out of the Muddy Monk 10K. My IT band flared up after running 4 miles on Tuesday and did not improve in the slightest. I knew even attempting it would be stupid so I chose not to run it. Not going to lie, I was frustrated and upset. But that’s life, right?
Here is a look at next week’s workouts:
Sunday – REST
Monday – Workout A + Cardio intervals
Tuesday – Cardio + Core workout
Wednesday – Workout B + 20 minutes steady state cardio
Thursday – Cardio + Core workout (Zumba only if my IT band is better)
Friday – Workout C + Cardio intervals
Saturday – ??? depends on IT band or REST
Sunday – REST
I’m excited to try the workouts in this phase because we use pulsing reps… I don’t think I’ve ever done this kind of workout before so it will be interesting to try! I know they’re very effective in strength classes I’ve taken!
And just so I don’t leave you all hanging, here’s a sneak peak into my weekend…
PROM DRESS! Awkward closet selfie… I had to show Kelsey after I bought it since she was very involved in my dress search…
What’s the best thing you did this weekend?
