Ok, now I am back in business for real! After we came back from Sweden Freddie and I hung out a few days in here in “Chicago” before we took our 10 years anniversary honeymoon to the British Virgin Island and what a week…heaven!
So yesterday was my second workout being back for real and being back in my normal routines but today I am suffering from lying in a sun chair reading “Gone with the wind” not doing to many other things except for throwing myself in the crystal clear ocean every other 30 minutes. It is also a great reminder of how painful it is to lay on coach for to long and as panful it is so it’s great to be back to my old routines and Jonathan had set up a great leg day Wednesday for us.
First out for the workout was 20 leg abductor from the TRX followed by 10 single leg squat touching our hands to the ground to be finished off with a step up with a high knee thrust. At the time being it didn’t felt so bad but this was just the beginning and I know one of the reasons why I can’t walk like a normal person today is because of the single leg squats for a starter 🙂
But there was no time to complain because as soon as the three sets was completed we moved into the seconds circuit that contained of 20 lateral lunges with a reach, 20 forward lunged with the medicine ball static overhead.
These two exercises alone gets your hart rate up to a decant level so when we finally made it back to our mats starting with 15 “peeing dogs” and leg extension from the knees squeezing the glut at every rep was some kind of relief!
The problem was that it didn’t last for long as we finished out this circuit with 15 weighted squats. The trick to it was to squat slowly pause at the bottom come right up but not all the way and go right back down again. It was at this point my legs started to feel a little wobbly…loll
So the workout was coming to an end but we were not quite there. It was a beautiful day and not to hot so we took it outside for some drills with the agility ladder working both cardio and speed as well our coordination. So with this my conclusion from my vacation is that is painfully truthful living like a slacker…haha
