Hola! I don’t have very much time (do I ever?) so I’m just gonna get right to it.
Workouts have been great…yesterday was back and hamstrings. Awesome stuff 🙂 I did cardio afterwards: 15% incline, 3.3mph for 32 minutes, and then brought the speed to 1.2mph and did lunges for 15 minutes. Good stuff i tell ya 😉
Today was boxing. My quads were feeling a bit tight this morning, and the sprints we did in boxing did not help. In fact, my right quad tightened up REALLY bad afterwards, and i was continually stretching and rolling it out as much as I could before training. I got to training#1 and we did some light band work on my upper body. Afterwards, I went to trainer #2 at the other gym. Today was shoulders and chest. Tough workout!! I mentioned my quad to trainer #2, and he marched me right into his office that he shares with a physical therapist. Carl rolled my quad out for me and OH.MY.GOSH pain like no other. I know rolling out muscles hurts and I was prepared, but let me just tell you, I think the hulk was rolling my quad out. It was totally unbearable and my trainer had to hold me down from squirming haha no joke! I know with that kind of thing you just have to grin and bear, but I was far from grinning. One of the ladies joked that the only thing to compare it to was child birth. Awesome, never having kids. (totally kidding)
I took a test, worked and now I’m getting ready for conditioning tonight. I will NOT be doing any of the leg work that they do tonight, just the boxing and upper body work. Tomorrow is leg day at the gym and I want my quad to be nice and rested and ready to go.
Good night all 🙂
