Today’s blog post is a recap of last week’s workouts which emphasized strength training above all. I get in a lot of movement in day-to-day life as a mom so when I have the chance to really focus on a workout, strength training tops my list!
Week of Workouts: August 2022
No workout for me on Monday!
Tuesday: Leg Day Garage Workout
I set my alarm for 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday because I was determined to knock out a workout before the boys were up. I joined Ryan in the garage and completed a leg day workout while he biked next to me. It was a back-to-basics kind of workout that focused on classic strength exercises that targeted my glutes, hamstrings and quads. I wasn’t feeling squats on Tuesday morning and simply omitted them — one of the beauties of creating my own at home workouts from time to time!
Wednesday: Biceps/Triceps/Shoulders Workout
Oh how I love an arm day workout! On Wednesday morning, I was up at 5:30 a.m. again for another garage workout and this time targeted my biceps, triceps and shoulders in a throwback PBF workout I shared a while back. It’s a serious upper body burner!
No workout on Thursday!
Friday: Streaming Burn Boot Camp Upper Body Workout (Back + Chest Emphasis)
I shocked myself by working out in our garage around 1:30 p.m. on Friday. I always say that if I don’t workout in the morning or at least by noon, it’s not happening. Naptime was my only workout window of the day on Friday and since I felt oddly energetic after lunch, I headed into the garage to work out while Rhett napped. Ryder was my workout buddy and played in the driveway and around me as I streamed an upper body Burn Boot Camp workout. The emphasis was primarily on chest and back exercises (lots of chest presses, flyes and rows) which is exactly what I was looking for on Friday!
Saturday was another rest day.
Sunday: Leg Day Workout + 3-Mile Family Walk
The past two Sundays in a row, I’ve oddly enjoyed getting in a quick workout before the day gets rocking. I followed a drop set leg workout I had saved in the notes section of my phone except I omitted the jump squats from the above workout. It wasn’t anything fancy but it was just what I was looking for on Sunday morning. We also went for a 3-mile walk around the neighborhood as a family before lunch!
Question of the Day
What does your workout routine look like lately?
I’ve been following a lot of the nourish move love challenges she sends out weekly. Right now I can really only dedicate 30ish minutes so the workouts are perfect. I can easily do them in the basement.
I love her workouts!! She seems like such a truly good person, too <3
We’ve had quite a warm summer (well, warm for uk!) so I’ve started doing the 6.15 outdoor class at my gym. Lots of emoms, partner workouts & early morning sun. Now wondering whether I’ll manage to continue when it’s dark and minus ten degrees!
