Happy Wednesday everyone!
I was driving home from work today and listening to a “throwback” workout station on Spotify. And when I say throw back the songs were from about 7 years ago?!? I don’t know… Anyways, I was thinking about how I was going to come home and do some yoga and then I had a brilliant idea! I am going to do yoga but to some hip hop music!!! I. Am. A. Genius! What got me going was a song by Usher. Sometimes I try to be a professional dancer in my car on my commute to or from work ;D Remember that car commercial with the woman dancing in the front passenger seat?! Eh hem… that’s me! Hahaha..I wish!
I will have to let you know how the hip hop yoga goes 😉
How often do you guys change up your workout routine? I get bored very easily if I do the same workout several times in a row. I am constantly switching it up. I had to give up running the bleachers as of late because of awful shin splints in my right shin. Today at work I was sitting at the nurses station and all of a sudden I had very sharp pains shoot up my right shin. Gosh it was PAINFUL! The physical therapist at work told me that I need to stretch more and lay off the high impact cardio for a little while. Ugh… I am going on a backpacking trip in a week so I hope to be back up to speed by then.
Yesterday a friend and I went to the park and climbed the stairs behind the nature center.
My friend is very toned and muscular as he spends a lot of time in the gym lifting weights. However, I can out do him when it comes to cardio any day! He texted me today to tell me that he was soooo sore. Poor baby! So I asked him if he would put me through a killer upper body workout. I am great with cardio. Not so great at being consistent with weights…especially my upper body. And this dude has some sweet arms so I trust that the workout he puts me through will be awesome and a good hurt!
What are some of your favorite upper body workouts?
Have a great night!
