The Heavy Lifters Dilemma

Its absolutely GORGEOUS out today here in MA, so I’m hoping to post this bright and early and get outside!
I’ve been feeling a little lost at the gym lately. Actually scratch that. I haven’t been to the gym much lately. I’ve been trying to get outside as much as I can before school starts up again, so I’ve been doing some running (almost got that 4 mile mark!) and some group classes including spin and yoga. I realize that those are not outside, but it’s been such a nice way to mix up my regular routine of workouts. That being said, I really love lifting heavy shit…and I haven’t been doing much of that at all. I’m trying to make a more reasonable schedule for myself this fall since I’m starting a new job in a new town and I was so busy last year that I lost all focus. What that really means is being more flexible…and we all know how easy that is for me. Well, I’ll give it a try. I’m hoping to lift, spin, and be merry in the not too distant future.
Anyway, speaking of the gym, here’s another upper body workout that I did last night. Since I’ve been taking a lot of spin classes, I’ve definitely been skimping in leg day…which is counterintuitive because stronger legs would make those hills and sprints much easier….my legs are just so tired! Oh well I’m sure quadzilla will make her return eventually.
I finished off with tabata sprints on the treadmill
1. walk 1 min at 4.0
2. sprint 20s at 8.0-9.0
3. hop on side rails for 10s
4. repeat steps 2-3 for a total of 4 mins or 8 rounds.
5. Walk 1 min 3.0
That’s about it for me today. I’m off to California tomorrow to visit my bro, so don’t miss me too much! Make sure to keep tabs on my Instagram and twitter while I’m away. Both links are on the sidebar!
