I have to say there is nothing better than having a workout partner around to motivate you! Luckily my friend Billie is that person for me She may look small too you but trust me she’s all muscle! Having that person there forces you to go to the gym and give it your all. Its hard to slack when you have someone there watching and motivating you!
Yesterday we went to Fitness 19 (Yes, I overextended myself and Crossfit will have to wait) right after work. I was absolutely exhausted and sleep deprived from the night before. For some reason my congestion and headache started clearing up as I was getting to mile 1.
The treadmill I was using happened to me right in front of the window which meant the sun hit me directly and with full force. I was drenched by the end of my cardio warm up! The total of two miles went by quick but I looked like I ran 20 from the sweat dripping down my forehead. After that Billie and I went to the stretch area where we focused on abs, planks, push-ups and squats. My set went something like this: 12 pushups, 12 squats, 12 pushups, 12 squats, 100 situps… repeat.
After the cross training and ab workout, we decided to focus on legs. The regiment went 3 sets of 12 per machine, which totals 36 reps. I did leg press, calves, leg extension and this last one (name which I always forget). The four machines accounted for a total of 144 reps…
