I’d have to say…one of my least favorite things to do is sprints the day after a hard leg workout. My legs were so sore when I went to the gym last night and sprints were one of the things on my to do list. Not easy! My legs felt like 3948 lbs! I got through them somehow, though.
Before sprints, I trained back & bis by completing Day 14 on Lee Labrada’s Lean Body trainer. That completes two weeks of his trainer. I thought I was only going to try out Lee’s trainer, but I’m actually really liking his workouts. His plan consists of 2 days of training, one day off (cardio only). I like that better than Jamie Eason’s program where it was 6 days on in a row! This one really gives your muscles a break and time to recover.
Here’s a peek at how I trained last night.
|Bent Over Dumbbell Row: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Underhand Pullups: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Hyperextension: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Concentration Curls: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Standing Barbell Curls: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
After that, I hit the treadmill and did some HIIT training. I did 30 min sprints of an 8 to 9 pyramid. I hopped on and off the treadmill every 30 seconds and changed the speed up or down .2mph every sprint. It was a great workout!
I managed to keep an average heart rate of 162 and my max was 179. I burned 312 calories..but the afterburn of HIIT is what I really love. I love knowing that by doing HIIT, you’ll be burning calories for much longer than if you were to do steady state cardio. I’M IN!
After getting my sweat on..I headed home to find the world’s best valentine’s day present (in my world). My boyfriend surprised me with having a heart shaped Giordano’s Stuffed pizza sent all the way from Chicago! Oh my gosh..this is my favorite pizza place in Chicago and was SO pumped about this! Isn’t it sad how excited I get over pizza?!
It was seriously the best Vday gift I could have asked for! Even though I don’t live in Chicago anymore, I’m a Chicago girl at heart still and always will be.
Obviously, I ate almost half the damn thing and those things are THICK. I was just too excited!
After that, I took the bf to the movies. It was more like I kidnapped him. I bought the tickets online and told him we we’re going to the movies. To his surprise we saw The Vow.
Oh my gosh. I loved it! I also love Channing Tatum’s sexiness. yum.
Has anyone ever told you that you look like a celebrity? If so, who?
I’ve been told I look like Danica Patrick a ton of times. My boyfriend gets Channing Tatum and Tim Tebow all the time. I can NOT complain about that one
I think I cried throughout this entire movie. We literally heard some people sobbing behind us in the theatre which was kinda funny. Overall, It was a good quality movie. The bf thought it was okay..but I’m sure he teared up a little. I don’t know how you couldn’t!!!
Channing Tatum did pretty well in the movie but Rachel McAdams blew me away! She’s so frickin gorgeous and a great actress. I love her!!! I recommend this movie, go see it NOW!
