I feel like I’m in a bit of a weightlifting funk lately. I haven’t been very excited to go to the gym and do my normal routine.
The last four weeks I’ve been doing this 3 Day Weightlifting Routine that involves 2 days of upper body work and 1 day of lower body work (since I feel that my legs couldn’t handle 2 days of weightlifting and marathon training).
. . . but now I’m bored and want to come up with something a bit different and more challenging.
Last night at home I tried this leg workout from Tracy Anderson.
It was a lot more challenging than it looks, and I could only do about 30 reps of most of the exercises. The workout reminded me a lot of ballet class, but without the same focus on form.
But spending a whole 20minutes+ devoted just to my glutes seemed like a bit of a waste of time. I understand that they’re major muscles, but still, the entire workout was ass-centric.
After that video, I tried a couple of upper body exercises from Body Rock which I liked so I might try to incorporate moves like those into my gym workout.
I’m thinking of trying out one of the classes at my gym, although I usually find the classes boring and, with it being January, the classes are jam-packed with people.
Can anyone recommend a good workout I could try?
In the Office Biggest Loser news, this week I didn’t lose any weight. But given the fact that I ate quite a bit over the weekend in celebration of Matt’s birthday, I’m pretty happy that there wasn’t a gain!
