Today I’m sharing a recap of my workouts this week.
It’s been a hot one here this week so that’s meant that all my workouts have been done in the morning and I’ve kept them short. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t worked hard though. I think HIIT workouts are some of the toughest ones for me, and I did a few of them over the past week. A big part of it is mental for me. I can do the exercises, but it’s tough for me to believe that I can do it when I’m feeling tired or just ready to be done.
All of my workouts this week were done on the Peloton app. I’m still really loving it. I thought that I may get bored with the workouts by now, but I have yet to do the same workout twice. There are just so many for my to pick from – even despite the fact that I don’t have a bike. If you’re on the fence about signing up, check out their free trial. I got to try it out for a month before paying for it, so I got a really good idea of what to expect.
I started off my week with a 20 minute arms and shoulders workout on the Peloton app. I followed it up with a quick 5 minute chest and back stretch. Both were with my favorite trainer on the app, Andy Speer.
I took my first rest day of the week on Monday.
My workout on Tuesday morning with a 20 minute HIIT cardio workout, once again on the Peloton app. I followed it up with a 10 minute full body stretch. I was going to be help my brother move later on in the day, so I figured it would be worth it to spend a bit more time stretching. Moving is always so much work!
I took my second rest day on Wednesday, post move. I definitely needed it with all the boxes I helped carry!
I did another arms and shoulders strength workout on the Peloton app. This one was another 20 minute workout. I was all about using the different weights, so I ended up having two sets of dumbbells and two plates! I thought for sure that my triceps would be sore after this workout, but I was surprised that they weren’t. There was a lot of triceps focused work during this one.
This workout was definitely my favorite one from the week. It was split into three sections – sprinting, boxing, and basketball. The exercises in each section were themed to that sport. For example, the sprinting had a lot of quick movements, the boxing had punching and shuffling, and the basketball section had a lot of jumping. I thought it was a really creative way to put together a workout. I definitely see myself doing this workout again – that’s now much I liked it!
My plan for today is to do a lower body workout. While I have worked my legs in the HIIT workouts that I did this week, I haven’t done one solely dedicated to my lower body. I’ll share on Instagram what I end up doing, so be sure to follow me there.
