How Low Can You Go

Do You Get Love At The Gym?

>> Wednesday, March 10, 2010

I do!  I went back to the gym yesterday after being gone for a week and my spinning instructor asked where I had been!  I felt so loved.  I also got a text from a guy at the gym that I see often and he asked where have I been and if I was slacking on the gym.  I told him that I was on vacation, he was mad that I had a legit excuse for not being there ;)  Today was crazy, I did the second part of my circuit and this time I focused on the lower body.  This is what I did:

20 reps where done of each exercise
  1. Leg Press--140 lbs
  2. Plie Squat with a 30 lbs weight
  3. Seated Leg Curl--45-50 lbs
  4. Lying Leg Curl --40-45 lbs
  5. Standing Calf Raise--180 lbs
  6. Seated Calf Raise -- 45 lbs
  7. 5 minutes on the treadmill
I am really starting to love this circuit stuff, it really gets your heart going and the fact that you do not rest (except when you are heading from one machine to the other)  really keeps up your heart rate.  The above was done with minimum rest 4 times, after all seven exercises I rested for about 2 minutes.  By the end I was drenched in sweat and exhausted.  This was all done in the morning.  In the evening I hit the treadmill for 30 minutes and then the elliptical for 20 min.  I know that it seems like I am working in overdrive but honestly, I am giving it my all this week that I am home because I know that when I go back to work I am sure that I will nit have as much tome to exercise, so I might as well take advantage. Also I am really looking to win this challenge!  As you can see from the right, all my hard work is paying off, 3 pounds down, YES!  I am excited for the weight in on Saturday.
