3 Dec

Friday morning Zach and I were up early again, though not quite as early as the morning before. Our exercise to be completed this time? Turkey Burn. I did this last year and it was an hour long bootcamp that was absolutely grueling and a fantastic workout. Last year each Y put their own event on but this year the event was at the Yorktown YMCA and combined everyone from each Y who wanted to be involved. There were over 60 people there and we were in for quite an intense session. There were 10 stations throughout the gym and we broke up into groups to spend just 5 minutes per station. Let me tell you, 5 minutes of going all out repeated 10 times in a row may not sound like much but this was exhausting!! Exhausting in a very good way, I might add. 🙂 When Zach and i got home we immediately compiled a list of all the exercises so I could share it with you. Here goes…

Station One:

  • Push a tire cross court
  • 8 Tire squat (squatting while holding tire)
  • 8 tire incline pushups
  • 8 tire jacks
  • Repeat until 5 minutes is up

Station Two:

  • Crabwalk up and down half court sitting on a roller dolly (sounds strange but this was a MAJOR hamstring killer)
  • 8 pike ups with roller
  • 8 bridge hamstring roll-ups
  • Repeat until 5 minutes is up

Station Three:

  • 1 minute wall sit
  • 1 minute pike ups with exercise ball
  • 1 minute leg/lower back raises with ball
  • 1 minute elbow to knee sit-ups on ball
  • 1 minute hands to feet pass with ball

Station Four:

  • Walking lunges with barbell + 20 lb. weights on each side, on shoulders
  • 8 overhead press with barbell
  • 8 squats with weight
  • 8 overhead press with squat
  • Repeat (This was the hardest station for me, the weight was really too much for almost all the girls except for the really ripped ones and I found myself having to put it down frequently.)

Station Five:

  • 1 min. 1-2-3-4 single leg dot hops
  • 1 minute 4-3-2-1 single leg dot hops
  • 1 minute 1-2-3-4 floor touch
  • 1 minute 1-2, 3-4 double hops
  • 1 minute 4-3-2-1 floor touch

Station Six:

  • Backwards tire pull cross half court
  • 8 tire jumps
  • 8 spiderman incline push-ups
  • 8 incline plank in-n-out
  • Repeat

Station Seven:

  • 8 core ball slams
  • 8 wall balls
  • 8 chest press throws with ball
  • Repeat

Station Eight:

  • Kettlebell run 1/2 court
  • 8 Kettlebell swings
  • 8 straight arm kettlebell jacks
  • Repeat

Station Nine:

  • 1 minute donkey kicks with right leg
  • 1 minute plank tap outs
  • 1 minute donkey kicks with left leg
  • 1 minute mountain climbers
  • 1 minute plank jacks

Station Ten:

  • Bear crawl 1/2 court
  • 8 V push-ups
  • Frog hop 1/2 court
  • 8 burpees
  • Repeat

Kudos to you if you stuck in there reading all that! 😉 More kudos to you if you decide to try it out! Even though we were worn. out. by the end Zach and I gave it our all and got an amazing workout in!! All of that makes this quite a long post so I will catch up the rest of the weekend in another post and right now just give you a quick fill-in on this week.

Monday- Exhausted from the 4 day weekend. How come days off are never actually restful? Probably my fault for jam-packing them full of stuff… No workouts to speak of for that day at all. Easy (thankfully) workday, dinner at Olive Garden with Zach after work and then we binge watched Dexter until I went to bed plenty early to catch up on sleep.

Tuesday- Much more rested! Gazelle, another easy workday (missing a lot of kids this week), gym after work. I ran on the treadmill for 1.5 miles in 15 minutes and then walked the next 15 for 2.39 miles (should have stayed on a little longer). Dinner was at Mom and Dad’s where we had fish with capers, a cheesy risotto, little biscuit balls and saucy green beans. I caught up on Biggest Loser while Zach had a beer with Steven and then we went home for more Dexter with a side of fries. I wanted a snack (like usual) but didn’t want anything sweet (which is not as usual). We are so hooked on our show right now, we’re over half-way through season 5 and crazy stuff is happening!! Got another good night’s sleep and that brings us to today. The rest of this week is low-key but starting this weekend things pick up and don’t look like they’re going to slow down again until after New Year’s!!

Tuesday’s Food Journal: (Picking this back up)

  • Breakfast – juice
  • Lunch – juice
  • Dinner- bread, fish, rice, green beans, fries

977.5/1,400 miles. 190.5/150 running miles.
