My first week with my new program is pretty much in the books. (Except for my planned 5 mile run tomorrow.) It was a really nice change. I'm trying to think of what to call the workout. I don't want to call it my Precision Nutrition workout, because it's not really a PN workout, just a PN-approved workout that I got from the forums. Hmmm...I'll think a little more about this.
Speaking of Precision Nutrition, I was reminded on Wednesday that they are going to be signing up another round for their Lean Eating Coaching Program on January 4th. Since I am using PN now, I am kind of thinking about signing up. But I'm not sure yet. Still thinking about it. There's a $10,000 prize for the best transformation - you can learn more about it by clicking here: PN Lean Eating Coaching Program
Here's how my week went:
Monday: Lower body workout with quad focus. I thought I took this workout easy, because I hadn't used the squat rack in a while, but as I was walking down the stairs on the way out of the gym, my legs felt like jelly. Later Monday night, I really was starting to feel it.
Tuesday: Upper body workout. I forgot my mp3 player at work on Monday, so I had to use my husband's this morning. That was kind of fun because I got to listen to different music. The next song is always a surprise - especially when the Iron Maiden plays! :) This was a good workout - lat pulldowns, presses, tricep extensions, curls and shrugs. I didn't think I would be too sore because my arms were used to working out, but Tuesday night I started feeling it in my triceps. My leg workout caught up to me too - I was having trouble walking! LOL
Wednesday: OFF. And a good thing too. I still had trouble walking. When I was planning my workouts, I had considered a 2 mile run on Wednesdays, but I really needed the whole day off. My legs started to feel better in the afternoon.
Thursday: Lower body workout with hamstring focus. Good workout, not too sore afterward, but definitely felt it on Friday morning. Also got a good upper body workout chipping the ice off of our driveway. :)
Friday: Upper body workout. This one was tough. Lots of rows, presses, flyes, and curls. I'm pretty sure I will be feeling this one later.
That's all for this week. I will be in Phase 1 of the workout for 2 more weeks, and then I move on to Phase 2.
Also - just a quick reminder that the Turbulence Training half off sale ends tonight at 9:00pm ET. You can check that out here: TT Half Off Sale
