the last workout.

in body for life,moves

it is kinda like the last supper. the last workout before my tonsils came out. more on that in a few, but i wanted to throw this up here before the routine escaped my memory, which has been known to happen.  that is the main reason i post my workouts, so i know if i am progressing since i always forget :)


hamstrings + glutes

stiff legged barbell dead lifts

*alternating with butt lifts w/ feet on bench:

  • 12 reps w/ 25#
  • 20 butt lifts w/ 10# plate
  • 10 reps w/ 30#
  • 20 butt lifts w/ 10# plate
  • 8 reps w/ 40#
  • 20 butt lifts w/ 10# plate
  • 6 reps w/ 50#
  • 20 butt lifts w/ 10# plate
  • 12 reps 2/ 30#
  • no rest

stability ball ham curls:

  • 12 reps

quads+ abs

wide stance (sumo?) barbell squats

*alternating with pass-the-ball-from-feet- to-hands on mat:

  • 12 reps w/ 25#
  • 10 complete foot to hand passes, keeping abs tight and legs and arms off ground the whole time, killer!
  • 10 reps w/ 30#
  • 10 complete foot to hand passes
  • 8 reps w/ 4o#
  • 10 complete foot to hand passes
  • 7 reps w/ 50#.. it was an easy squat for me so i did 7, but it was hard to get the barbell up on my shoulders so i couldnt go heavier and i was not at the squat rack..
  • 10 complete foot to hand passes
  • 12 reps w/ 30#
  • no rest

bench step ups with dumbbells:

  • 12 reps each leg holding 8# dumbbells


standing calf raises:

  • 12 reps @ 20#
  • 15 second rest
  • 10 reps @ 40#
  • 15 second rest
  • 8 reps @ 60#
  • 15 second rest
  • 6 reps @ 80#
  • 15 second rest
  • 12 reps @ 40#
  • no rest

single calf raises:

  • 12 each leg, body weight only

i used to be able to do 6 reps with 100#, i need to work back up to and beyond that.  also, i hate that i can’t do anything in between these sets because i will lose the machine! the people at my gym suck.

the workout only took about 40 minutes, i was pressed for time b/c i was at work until 6 and then had to workout, pack my bag for my mom’s house (where i am staying for a few days) finish my laundry (i hate going home to a messy room after vacation or surgery!), make dinner, say bye to the friends (half of my roomies go to jamaica friday so i wont see them for 2 weeks, sad), go to my mom’s and drop all my bags off, then go to marshalls. WHEW! so yeah, short workout, but a good one and i am really glad i made myself do it regardless of my time crunch. i am proud :)

Awesome workout! I’ll have to try those sumo squats. I can’t do alternating sets on machines either, they always get stolen! Sometimes people will even steal the dumbbells I leave on the floor!
