MEmoRiaL DaY

If you have been following this IG for a few years then you know that I like to post a workout up on a Holiday.  I always like to start my holiday Festivities off with a good sweat sesh.

1 mile run
20 reps for each exercise in the circuit
ONE time only.

.5 mile run
15 reps for each exercise in the circuit
THEN, repeat. 2 TOTAL rounds.

.25 mile run
10 reps for each exercise in the circuit
THEN, repeat.  4 TOTAL rounds.

When finished you'll have 3 miles completed and a good day on the weight floor.  Push yourself on the runs.  If you choose to walk the running part, just go 1/2 the distance and add some incline to it.  HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Magleby's Fresh

I'm still besides myself about our Sweat Saturday.  I was not planning to work that hard.  But it's amazing what a workout partner can do for ya.   

I refueled myself with an egg white omelet from Magelby's Fresh and I couldn't do the potatoes because I literally had no energy to eat them…. haha but always energy for bacon.

the Orange Signature 1x1

Just finished up the '1x1' at Orangetheory Fitness Thanks to Trainer JP for such a SPLATalicious class.

I was looking for my name up on the board and it wasn't there… Funny Funny @princess.jenn_fitlyfe


Monday Morning Wake Up w/ Glutes

Monday Morning Wake Up:

THREE exercises.  That's it!  And I PROMISE you some sore Glutes.

It's always a good idea to go with a lower body day following a weekend.  Use all that extra energy and challenge yourself with some heavy weights.

Donkey Kicks are 15 on EACH side.  And Walking Lunges are 50 on EACH leg.

Wipe off the Sweat

Yep!!  Wether it was your 1st workout or 14369th workout and you just weren't feeling it.  Wipe off the sweat, Take a deep breath and KILL the next workout.  We have to experience the not so good ones to appreciate the great.

Monday with OTF

Starting my Monday off with Orangetheory Fitness of Orem with a POWER workout.

Excited for some Chest Flyes, Power Push Ups, Bicep Curls on the TRX Strap, Pop Jacks, 200 meter Rows, Pull Overs, Upright Rows and my favorite Lateral Step Ups with Power.

And of course BASE, PUSH and ALL OUTS on the Treads.

Such a great Full Body Workout!

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem

Do you ever have days where you just don't want to leave the house BUT you actually want to get in a workout and sweat?  I have.  Sometimes a workout that requires no shoes or shirt OR heck since we are going there forget the pants too can be just as good.  Or if you miss the alarm and don't have enough time but have time for a little something.

This one is for you!  A bit of abs, cardio, arms and legs.  You really can do this in your pjs.  Do as many rounds til you feel.

It's Your Choice

Woke up Monday morning way too early and went to bed last night way too late…. The struggle this morning was REAL.  

I though about missing my workout for sleep but then I know how a missed workout makes me feel.  So I chose to be a nice person today ;)

Back to the GRIND

Back to the GRIND!!! 

 Monday Morning Wake Up:

On a Tread, do 3 sprints for 20 secs on/40 secs off with the incline at 10% and speed at 7.5+ ( just to give you an idea, I do my sprints at 9.0 mph and it actually feels slower when your incline is set up that high).

THEN, after 3 sprints you hit the floor.  Do all 8 exercises for 20 secs.  Take 10-15 seconds between each exercise if needed.

THEN, repeat it ALL…… sprints included, 5-7x.  

ENJOY!!! Happy May.
