We got back from our weekday football game excursion late Friday night. It felt good to sleep in our own bed. The expectation of great weather in Charlotte motivated both my husband and I to sneak in workouts before lunch (his was much longer the mine). While my daughter napped, I squeezed in a twenty minute weight circuit in my family room (while I caught up on mindless reality television).
Grab a pair of dumbbells and a kettlebell. Complete the following exercises sequentially as one circuit three times. For your first round complete 20 reps, second round 15 reps and final round 10 reps.
- Goblet Squats
- Kettlebell Shoulder Press (total reps each arm)
- Kettlebell Side Bends (total reps each side)
- Kettlebell One Legged Deadlift (total reps each leg)
- Dumbbell Bicep Curls
- Tricep Extension with Dumbbells
- Dumbbell Kickbacks/Fire Hydrants (total reps each leg/each exercise)
- Knee to Elbow plank
When my husband got home from his workout, I went for a short run/walk outside. There will only be a few more weeks of this kind of weather in Charlotte, so I need to take advantage of it. I am also getting to the point where I think riding on the bike might just be more comfortable than trying to run.
We grabbed a quick lunch before heading to the Smartcore Fitness Health Fair. I was there representing Flywheel Charlotte, but my husband and daughter also came to check out the festivities. It was great seeing several of my regular riders outside of the studio with my family. It is rare that they get to meet my husband and daughter.
I enjoyed catching up with the nutritionist on site, Chef Thomas (a healthy home delivery meal service) and Performance Rehab Associates. All offered great options for my family when we experience different scenarios over the next several years. I look forward to being in touch. Let me know if you want more information!
Sunday playlist above. Lots of new stuff. Thank you riders for turning an early morning workout into a great start to my day. I rarely find myself on the bike teaching these days, but when I do, it is great to be welcomed in such a great environment. There were several riders in my class this morning getting geared up for the big Flywheel Challenge. Good luck!
