Les Mills Pump Day 33

Les Mills Pump Workout: Pump and Shred

TGIF!  I spent most of my day and night doing things from home including homework.  I am still trying to get in the habit of doing schoolwork since I was out of school for a while.  I especially need to work on completing the bulk of my homework ahead of time.  I finished my homework late and afterwards, my brain was worn out and I was ready for bed.  There was one more thing I needed to do before bed though.  I needed to get my workout done.

My mind was telling me to just go to bed.  I am a bit sore from working out to Insanity last night…most particularly in my upper back.  There was no way I would skip a scheduled workout.  I would regret not getting my workout in.  I worked out to Pump and Shred for the second time.  I powered through the warm up and even the Squat Track.  Squats and Bottom Halves are getting easier as I do them.  I have no problem at all with performing moves in the Chest Track either.  Executing moves with my arms are definitely easier than my legs.  I love doing the Clean and Press along with Deadlifts and Dead Rows in the Legs and Back Track.  The Clean and Press has become one of my favorite moves.  I decided to challenge myself by going back to the 10 pound plates on the barbell.  I have gotten stronger since the last time I tried the 10 pound plates.  It was still a challenge but I had fun with it.

Following that track was the Legs Track aka crazy lunges.  I mentioned earlier this week that I would do the lunges with the barbell only.  I had difficulty the last time and took a few breaks.  I am proud to say that I kept the 5 pound plates on and kept up the whole time.  There were a few times that I wanted to shake my legs out.  I was shaking and of course it was getting harder on my legs but I kept going.  The only way I can get stronger is if I keep going and work through the burn.  In the Shoulders Track, I modified the pushups and even that was hard with the different counts.  It’ll get easier to do pushups as I lose more weight.  I was dripping in sweat at the end of that track.  Trying to get my shoulder across to my knee in the Abs Track is a killer each time and it’s always a great feeling after I do abs.

I am definitely going to sleep well tonight and tomorrow I’ll be heading to the Team Beachbody Chicago Super Saturday event where Carl Daikeler, CEO/Founder of Beachbody, will be the special guest.  It will be a good day tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it!

Have a great weekend and as always, KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!
