I love Sunday’s like this. I woke up at 7:30am and started enjoying my day. We were suppose to go to the beach but with the overcast until close to Noon we decided against it.
My husband and I started our day with a 3 mile run and a trip to the the gym for some strength training. I do have to say today’s run was just as difficult as yesterday’s and it was only 3 miles. At one point my heart rate got all the way up to 170 bmp, that rarely happens. Even when I am running on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was challenging but good nonetheless. Once we were at the gym, it was chest and triceps day for me. This is what I did:
- Chest Press w/ 30lb bar – 3 sets of 10
- Chest Flys w/ 20lb dumbells- 3 sets of 10
- Chest Press w/ 20lb dumbells- 3 sets of 10
In between those sets I did abs:
- V-ins – rep of 25
- Toe touching crunches – rep of 25
- Bicycles- rep of 25
- Reverse crunches- rep of 15
Then I moved on to triceps exercises
- Skull-crushers- bar was 25lbs and then I added 2.5lbs on each side- 3 sets of 10
- Triceps dips- 3 sets of 8
- Overhead triceps- 3 sets of 20 (10 lb kettle ball)
Same set of abs as above in-between each set.
To end the workout I took a resistance ball and did pike touches- 3 sets of 12
By the end my arms were jiggling… LOVED IT!
I love to run but I LOVE strength training! I feel so strong when I am done.
Then the rest of the day was spent meal planning, grocery shopping and laundry. Just a normal Sunday. It was great.
For dinner I took a recipe for Kun Po Shrimp. I added brown rice to it. Turned out great. I realized at the end that there were no veggies, so now I know for next time to add some broccoli or something similar. Here is my plate with a yummy glass of red wine.
Now the day is winding down. I still need to fold the laundry and then to wrap up the night a little Entourage!! I love me some Vinnie Chase!
