Lifting on Saturday

We had an extra weight lifting session today, so instead of sleeping in this morning, I headed to the gym to workout at 9:00AM.  It was a pretty good, tough workout.  Our trainer switches “phases” every few weeks so our bodies have to adapt to a different type of workout.  We’re moving from double sets to single sets with lower body exercises alternating with upper body.  Here’s the workout (if I remember correctly):

Tuck-crunches (don’t know if this is what they’re called, but it’s the motion that you make, tuck in your knees and crunching up with extended arms)


Modified leg lifts spelling the alphabet with our legs


Pilates bridge and push-up (start in a pilates bridge and then move one arm after another into the push-up position and do a push-up, repeat)

Lat pull-downs @ 90lbs?

Prisoner squat to knee-up

Bench dips @ BW

Prisoner squat to knee-up

Triceps @ 7.5lbs dumb bells

Prisoner squat to knee-up

Bicep curls @ 30lbs barbell

Prisoner squat to knee-up

Shoulder Press @ ? lbs

Right leg lunge to knee-up

Arm raises with bungee

Left leg lunge to knee-up

Upright row with bungee

Right leg lunge to knee-up

Push-ups @ BW

Left leg lunge to knee-up

Push press (squat with a press) @ 35lbs plate

The rest of the day I spent packing.  I’ve packed about 20 boxes already and there’s still so much to do!  Tomorrow morning, I’m going to start bright and early before we get the truck at 11AM.  It’s going to be a long day!
