this is where i was really running out of time so i slammed the shoulder exercises out as fast as possible! did not want to, but i had no choice.
dumbbell shoulder press (seated):

  • 12 reps w/ 10#
  • 15 second rest
  • 10 reps w/ 12.5#
  • 15 second rest
  • 8 reps w/ 15#
  • 15 second rest
  • 5 reps w/ 20# (couldn’t do 6)
  • 15 second rest
  • 12 reps w/ 10#

dumbbell lateral raises

  • 12 reps w/ 5#

okay so that was my work out for yesterday! i went to the doc after that and had some calluses burned off my feet with acid. yes it was as painful as it sounds. i guess because of the way i walk/run the line on the ball of my foot between my big toe and other toes squishes together and forms these deep calluses that are painful. i always thought they were plantar warts but i guess not. so now i basically cannot walk, which means i cannot do my HIIT, which i am upset about.. i am going to attempt the bike today after work. we will see how it goes!
