Catching up on my posting after the weekend retroactively. Saturday for me has to include some family and relaxing time, something I've historically been terrible at. I was able to put in most of my workout time in the latter part of the day, hitting the weights and ending with some Insanity workouts. I will admit, one of my favorite parts about working out at home, especially the video cardio workouts is that I can set up in my living room, put something gnarly on Netflix and then get after it. It really helps pass the time quickly since I historically despise cardio workouts.
No weight check-in today, I'm going to save these for Monday mornings.
Adjusted my MyFitnessPal goals down a bit to 1.5 pounds lost per week with exercise adjustments. For my current size, activity levels, etc. that has me coming in around 2,500 calories per day.
Today was a good day of eating for the most part, I did come in over my calorie intake, but with how hard I finished out the day I think that's perfectly reasonable.
Note: daily goal adjusted up because of exercise.
Late evening (around 8:00 pm start)
Started off with weights at home where I'm slightly limited with equipment. Ideally I can get some heavier lifts like squats, leg presses, calf raises, etc. in, but at home I need to make some adjustments. Here's what I did.
|1||Dynamic warm up||1||5 minutes|
|2a||EZ bar front squat||5||12|
|2b||Weighted leg raise and tuck||5||12|
|3a||Split bulgarian squat (L)||5||12|
|3b||Split bulgarian squat (R)||5||12|
|3c||Weighted russian twists||5||60 seconds|
|4a||Overhead dumbbell extension||5||10|
|4b||Air squats (body weight)||5||25|
I tried afterwords to get some cardio in on the heavy bag but I was shot. After I got this lift in I went upstairs for a quick protein shake.
After turning on Netflix to finish up season 2 of the Punisher I pulled out my laptop to do the GameDay workout. I only ended up being able to get through about 35 minutes of the video and I was completely shot, still a terrific workout though.
