Les Mills Pump Workout: Pump and Shred
Today kick off Les Mills Pump Week 5! Hope you all had a wonderful and healthy weekend! I know I did! I weighed myself when I woke up and I lost another pound!…8 pounds total lost since August 27th. It looks like calorie counting is helping me melt the fat away once again. I think I would lose more weight if I can get to bed earlier and wake up earlier. And most importantly, get the proper amount of sleep. I went to bed super late so I can take my test and get my homework done. That is what I will work on this week beginning tomorrow because it’s late as I write this. Oops!
I worked what I thought was my final day of working 11 consecutive days and nights. I thought wrong. I didn’t know that I was put on the schedule for tomorrow morning so it looks like it will end up being 12 days and nights. Now I am very looking forward to relaxing, running errands, getting homework done, and doing a little work from my computer on Wednesday. I’ll be off until Monday. Work went by at a good pace and even though I am exhausted, I did a good amount of walking around. I went for a late dinner with a friend at Jason’s Deli and hit up their salad bar. I didn’t realize that I went a little past my calorie intake for the day until I got home and logged my dinner.
I was planning on working out twice tonight after finding out that I went over my calories; that is until I worked out to Pump and Shred. I worked out to Pump and Shred for the first time tonight. It is the longest workout that I have completed so far with it being 45 minutes long. It’s all about endurance and of course The Rep Effect. And let me tell you, that was nuts. My arms and legs are shaking again and I worked up a huge sweat. There are a couple tracks that I haven’t done since Pump Challenge…Legs and Shoulders. This time around, they are longer and tougher. I had to take a few breaks during the Legs track because my legs were burning hardcore. I thought I didn’t like squats the most but I’m changing it to lunges as they are not my favorite at the moment haha. I used the barbell with 5 pound plates. Next time, I’ll just use the bar until I am strong enough to go through the track without stopping. In the Shoulders track, my shoulders were burning big time too. When I finished my workout, my hands kept shaking from working on my shoulders. I decided that Pump and Shred was enough. I’m sure I’ll be sore tomorrow. I can’t even imagine what Pump Revolution and Pump Extreme will bring when I do those in Phase 2.
KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!
