I missed recapping my workouts last week when my mom was visiting. It was a very low key week with lots of rest and not a lot of high intensity. I stepped it up a bit this week and felt great overall. None of my workouts left me sore or overly fatigued. It was a really good mix for me.
Tonight I have a recap of my week of workouts for you along with a new playlist that I love to give you some new music inspiration.
1 mile run to warm up then TRX + Weights Circuit
I have been all about the TRX lately and have been using it in my own training as well as my client’s workouts. On Monday I did one of the workouts that I used on a client the week before. The workout alternated bodyweight TRX movements with weighted exercises.
Hoy Vinyasa Yoga + Strength
I haven’t been practicing a lot of yoga lately. It has been SO hot in the studio since the arrival of warm and humid summer weather. After I make it through teaching a class, I have a hard time staying or coming back later to practice. On Tuesday I did stay after I taught to take class and sweated my life out on my mat. It felt good.
I had a client cancel on me later that evening on Metro so I used the time to do a quick strength workout. I did five rounds of front squats, pull ups and supine toes to bar.
5 mile run
I did this run with my new running partner and it felt great. It was super humid out so we were both drenched at the end.
I did this crazy workout that our gym programmed earlier in the week.
2 Overhead Squats
4 Wall Balls
5 Ab Mat Sit Ups
I thought it would be really tough but it was not so bad. I finished in a little over 18 minutes.
CrossFit + Yoga
I trained clients at 6:30 and 7:30 and then stayed after to do the WOD.
10 power clean (65#)
10 push press (65#)
10 kettlebell swings (35#)
10 wall balls (14#)
15 power clean
10 push press
10 kettlebell swings
10 wall balls
20 power cleans
Short and sweet. Around 8 minutes RX. Later that morning I took a non-heated yoga class from one of my students who just completed teacher training. She was auditioning for a teaching position at Om Yoga and I’m so proud of her. She rocked it!
Run + Weights
I ran to the gym (a little less than 2 miles from my house), worked out and then ran home.
10 alternating front rack lunges (45#)
10 push ups
10 GHD sit ups
I predict a sore booty tomorrow! Those front lunges will do it every time. I spent the rest of the day lounging by the pool! 🙂
And here’s that playlist for you.
