My week of workouts (for the week of June 2nd)

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I'm going to start documenting my workouts here once a week so I can look back and see how I improve/change over time. This is just for my own information. I find that this is an easy way to record everything (I know most readers come here to find out what paleo babies eat).

Sunday, June 2nd: Rest.

Monday, June 3rd: Yoga. Balance and mobility are big challenges for me right now, so yoga is tough. I used to be able to do a full wheel and at one point I was getting very close to doing crow pose. Now, I can barely hold a shoulder bridge. Much work ahead.

Tuesday, June 4th: One minute Airdyne challenge (21 calories). In the workout we did kettlebell front squats, toes to bar and slam ball sprints. I used the blue kettlebell, and for the first time possibly ever I did a few toes to bar (instead of just knee raises). I started out using the 30-pound slam ball but switched to 40 on the last two sprints.

Wednesday, June 5th: TRX/Kettlebells/sprinting. This is my favorite workout right now. It involves everything I love and nothing that I dread. I'm switching between the blue and the yellow kettlebells (BTW these kettlebells are not actually blue and yellow; they just have tape on them to make them easy to identify for people like me who can never remember how much they weigh), which is an improvement because not too long ago I was using the two smallest ones.

Thursday, June 6th: Three-minute rope climb challenge. I am currently unable to climb the rope, and I don't care. Sorry. Then we did an 800m sprint, followed by 3 rounds of 25 kettlebell swings (I started with yellow and moved to blue) and 50 bodyweight squats and one more 800m sprint.

Friday, June 7th: Rest.

Saturday, June 8th: Unintended rest. I planned to go to yoga. But I didn't make it. I needed sleep.

  1. I am so inspired by this post, Dawn! I need to step up my game in the workout thing. And, going to Baby Boot Camp once a week in addition to that. I thought I can run, but running with a stroller is another story.
