Training Thursday

Training Thursday #6

Good morning friends and welcome to my 6th Training Thursday. The past few haven’t really been ideas on working out or ways to get out there so I’m going to bring that back today with a new graphic! 

Winter Training Thursday


If you are new to Training Thursday head on over here and see why I started this. Starting off the week I was in some desperate need of Body Pump. 

IMG_0439For those of you who don’t do Body Pump (really though you should join the club!) It is about an hour class that takes you through a bunch of exercises using weights. It is designed to get a cardio burn as well as strengthen and tone your muscles. I”m obsessed with it. It starts out with a warm-up and then goes into legs followed by a bunch of arm exercises. The class is designed to accommodate all fitness levels, I go in and am very novice in my lifting yet next to me is a guy who can use weights three times the ones I use. 

Since I have been going to body pump on a regular basis I’ve noticed my legs and gotten more solid and less jiggle when I get out of the shower and towel off and I’m starting to notice small arm definition. Tons more to go to get to where I need to be but this is an awesome and addicting way to get there. 

IMG_0440Above is a running workout I did last week. It was awesome! Like I said before I’m not a huge fan of spending hours at the gym. I would rather get a workout in fast and furious but with the same burn the people who hang out there forever get. I found the above workout on Pintrest from Shape magazine. I used it running and loved it, I got 2.75 miles in 25 minutes which is unheard of for me! I love how you can convert it to spinning, stair master or even swimming if that is your cardio of choice. 

Now it’s your turn to tell me what you did this past week! Are any of you brave souls besides my mama still workout out outside?
