It’s pretty fitting for how workouts look around here lately as my focus continues to be on strength training and whatever workouts Burn Boot Camp throws my way on the days when making it to the gym works with my schedule.
Week of Workouts: May 2022
Monday: Shoulders/ Biceps / Triceps Workout
I’ve mentioned this little trick before but when it comes to waking up before dawn to work out on a Monday, if I plan a workout I know I love, it makes motivating myself to get out of bed and work out a million times easier. Enter Monday’s biceps, triceps and shoulder workout! I put together a basic superset workout that targeted my arms and had me in and out of the garage in less than 40 minutes.
Tuesday: Full Body Workout
After Monday’s workout I was thankful that Tuesday’s full body Burn Boot Camp workout didn’t target my arms too much and seemed to focus on chest and back for upper body work. I struggle to enjoy full body workouts at home but it’s clearly a mental hurdle because I love them at Burn Boot Camp! This workout was broken up into a series of supersets and hot daaang this one left my hamstrings and back super sore!
No workout for me on Wednesday!
Thursday: Leg Workout
Oh leg day, you are a beast! And you’re even more of a beast when I’m still feeling a little sore from Tuesday’s workout! I challenged myself with heavier weights and really focused on slowly progressing through the lower body exercises on Tuesday’s workout and so the leg workout on Thursday felt like a double burner for me. I actually loved Thursday’s leg workout because I am a sucker for hip thrusters and deadlifts and this workout had a lot of them!
Friday: Upper Body Workout
It’s easy to motivate myself to make my way to Burn Boot Camp on a Friday morning because I have a standing gym date with my friend Lauren and our kids love knowing they’ll have some of their best buddies to play with in Burn’s child watch. Couple a gym date with a friend with and upper body workout (my fav!) and I was in heaven! This workout was fast-paced and I loved the way the second 10-minute block changed things up with isometric holds to really make me feel the burn.
Saturday: Off (5+ Miles Walking at the Zoo)
No workout on Saturday but I think walking 5+ miles at the zoo counts toward my overall fitness for the week!
No workout on Sunday!
