Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I hope you are having a great week so far.’ This morning I had pre-workout for the 1st time in probably 3 + years and it was fine. I did not lose my mind and I did not feel a huge difference from my usual cup of coffee… Although now that I think about it, I did not experience a caffeine crash (which was nice) and I felt extra happy and motivated in the afternoon. So much that I cleaned the kitchen and downstairs.
I think I will use pre-workout on my upper body days since those days are more challenging for me than my leg days. So that will be about 2 times a week. Have you used pre-workout before? Comment below with your favorite!
Today’s Workout: Shoulders & Triceps
- Seated Dumbbell Press 3 x 20
- Seated Arnold Press 3 x 20
- DB Front Raise 3 x 20
- DB Lateral Raise 3 x 20
- Tricep Extensions 3 x 15
- Seated French Press 3 x 15
- Single Arm Tricep Extensions 3 x 8
- Tricep Bench Dips 3 x 25
- Single Leg Lowering 3 x 20
- Bicycle Twists 3 x 20
*Active rest for 30 seconds between every set. I did Jumping Jacks, High Knees, Pulse Squats, and Plie jump squats. I decided to avoid lateral motion because my left knee was a little sore today.
After my lifting workout I hit the elliptical for 35 minutes and did seven 30 second all out sprints with 30 seconds easy in between. I think this was also fueled by the preworkout.
Word of the Day:
- A temporary or final ceasing (as of action): Stop
That was a new word that I have not heard of before. I like it and will try and utilize it in the future. Slip it into conversation every now and then 🙂
It is finals week and I have been trying not to stress out or procrastinate too much. What have you been up to lately? Please comment below to share!
