Training Thursday

Training Thursdays

After almost two years of reading blogs and looking at other people doing a certain thing each week (Treat Yourself Tuesday, What I ate Wednesday etc.) I decided I was going to do my own. So I am excited to bring you my first installment of…

Training Thursday

So as you can tell Training Thursday is workout based. I came up with the idea after talking to one of my girlfriends and she was telling me how her trainer has her do a different thing each day so her body doesn’t get use to anything and she gets the most out of the time spent. It sounded like an awesome idea to me, not only for the benefits but for the variety of things you can do to keep you interested in going to the gym.

We all find ourselves in a rut where one more day of going for a run will just put us over the edge. The second working out becomes a chore is when I start to loose interest in doing it and make excuses as to why I can skip the gym.

Funny Friendship Ecard: So youre telling me creating an exercise board on Pinterest isnt enough? I actually have to do the damn workouts?!  Check out the website

So for the past two weeks I have been switching it up! Body Pump, Stairs, Pure Barre, Spinning, Elliptical and much more. I’m actually excited for the gym again. I’ve found classes I look forward to each week and for the past week there hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I’m not sore on some part of my body.

My goal of this is to do a link up and let everyone say what they have been doing for exercise, that way there are tons of ideas for me and others to switch up their routine and continually be motivated and excited for the gym.

pink-green-body-queen:    This is so insanely true, haha. Omfg. Love it. <3

Each week I plan on bringing something new to the table as well. To start off with this week the new thing I did was different stances to squat. I am sure most of you already know this trick but I didn’t. Depending on how wide or narrow your stance is depends on what muscles in the legs and butt you work.

I never knew this until I could hardly move after a class of squatting in a wide stance. The next few days the outsides of my legs were on fire but I felt amazing.

So next time you are doing your squats think of that, you don’t have to just do hip width apart, you can switch it up and get a more complete tone on your body!

    1. no problem! It was more for selfish reasons to give me ideas on ways to change up my workout but figured others might also fall into the same ruts I do!

    1. I just started lifting so that is very exciting for me. The “dreadmill” though is one that I can’t even look at right now

  1. I just linked up! (I guess it’s waiting for your approval??) Anyway, I’m excited about link up’s like this – I need all the motivation I can get. I started back in July and have been doing great until the cold weather hit… and now I’ve slowed down. Not good! I just going our gym again yesterday so hopefully I can get in there to run and do a little lifting.

    1. Hey Danielle, I dont’ see it coming through. I would just make sure that the page you are submitting links back to my blog. If you still have trouble you can shoot me an email at

      I am with you in needing all the motivation I can get. I love the cold weather though since I’m a skier so the summer is when I have the most trouble getting out.
