The good thing with having a bad day is that the next day will most likely be a good one, right!
This is the week John have left us to spend some time with his lady in Scotland so I figured it is pretty much up to myself to make sure that I will get my weekly weight training. One of the reason why I like to workout in a small group is that I always find myself pushing that little bit extra so today I meet up with Laura at Life Time Fitness. This will be the only time this week we are working out together as she is leaving for the sunny Florida tomorrow.
Having a trainer makes you spoiled in more than just having a trainer because we never have to plan or think about what we are doing before we get into the gym. So yesterday I sat down and made up a plan and it was a long one. Both Laura and me like to do our cardio so we started the workout with a quick run doing intervals and then we moved into working the old legs and core.
Once we were at the barbell and were going to do squats none of us knew what weight we normally use because John always sets it for us, panic! We ended up adding on weight as we thought was appropriate and we surely did not put any light weights on because our legs were capped at the end and we did not even finish my long list of exercises before it was time for me to go and get Mira from school.
I guess I need to work on my time perception…lol
Personal trainers should not be allowed to have a life of their own 🙂 We should get together for a weight training session, I could bring you as a guest to LA!
Love to…thursday morning?
I have always trained myself. But maybe next time ask the trainer for a copy of your workouts while he’s away. He probably writes down your weight… Might simplify you’re planning.
Most trainers will give you a list of what weights and reps you do. All you have to do is ask! Also, whats good if you can’t meet with the trainer, take a spin class, those classes are brutally great work outs!
