I have not posted in a week, because I have not worked out in a week. I have a history of terrible migraines that will not stop and I had an episode over the weekend and it lasted for a few days. So, I spent much of the past few days doped up on medication.
So, I knew today would be rough. I was honestly excited to see Sam again. I've finally crossed over into enjoying my sessions and I even look forward to them. I've practically taken a week off though, so I was expecting my body to go into shock. I don't post links if I've already posted a link to the exercise in a previous post.
20 Modified Push ups
20 Wall Balls
20 V Ups (yeah, really freakin ridiculous...I'm seriously not kidding)
40 Step Ups
20 Sumo Squat High Pulls
20 Shoulder Press w/ Barbell
Then jog across a gym, up a flight of stairs, 1/8 of a mile, and back down the flight of stairs, then do it all over again.
ALL OF THIS WAS DONE FOR 3 ROUNDS
Yes, people, 3 Oh my goodness I think I'm going to puke rounds. I did the 1st round in 11:20, the 2nd in 11:40, and the 3rd in 10:22. These times may seem a slow to some one who is in shape, but I'm close to 240 lbs, so I was beat. Sam knows by now to play on my competitive nature, so he tells me how long it takes me, because he knows I will want to beat my time. When he told me I was slower the 2nd round I got a little ticked. I was completely exhausted the 3rd round, but I just HAD to beat my two previous times. It took everything I had and a prayer or two, but I did it! I was rewarded with a high five. Hey now...don't turn up your nose at my high fives. Lol! I've only gotten one on two other occasions. It's how I know I've surpassed his expectations. Well, maybe I should say it's how I know I've turned in an awesome workout, because he always tells me he only asks me to do things he knows I can do. Anyway, you get the point...high fives mean I kicked butt!
The hardest thing for me was definitely the V-Ups. If I did not have to do those I would have finished much much sooner. They are HARD HARD HARD...just try 5 if you don't believe me.
Today's song is an all time fav of mine. Prince is picky about his music being on youtube, so this link may not even be active a few minutes from now but here it goes anyway
