Happy Friday and to quote Rihanna, "Here's to the freakin' weekend."
I don't know how everyone else faired this week, but this one seemed like a long one. I know it was no longer than any other specific week, but I have been dragging all week.
I hite the gym on wednesday and thursday morning and boy was it a workout. On Wednesday I did some Chest and abs before going in to a spin class. Because of the time constraints on that pesky part of my day that I refer to as "work", I was only able to stay for 30 minutes. That 30 minutes, however was pretty insane. i dunno which spin instructor that was, but that old lady was killing us.
During Body pump you work out all the areas of your body. Several songs are for legs, then chest, then arms, then abs/core. The whole thing is done for 60 minutes straight and the weights used are extremely light. Despite the light weights, the sheer volume of reps completed really kick your butt.
The last bonus is that it is led by an instructor who has to be specifically certified by "Les Mills" (that is the specific brand of this class) to teach the class. The instructor is required to be positive and help you set up if you are new. It really is a great opportunity for a newcomer or just someone looking for something to change up a boring workout.
My personal plan is to get 4 class a week between spin/core and more/ and body pump per week. 205 lbs... here i come. Have a great Friday everybody and enjoy the weekend.
