Workout: Taught spin (no tension and I have to stay in the saddle the whole time), 30 minutes elliptical level 2, weights for 20 minutes and SWIMMING for an hour. 3 awesome things about today’s workout……My little spinnee’s were so fun today, I DID the elliptical (on a toddler’s level but I am not complaining) with less pain, and swimming was SO fun and I had my OWN lane the entire time for the first time ever (I HATE sharing lanes because the people complain that I accidentally flale my arms into their face or sing too loudly).
I got home and showered (swimming is definitely helping me with my hygiene) and made the world’s largest salad and yes, that is a casserole dish.
I had broccoli, tuna, eggs, spinach, dressing and an orange on the side. Fiber baby.
Every now and then someone emails me about my weights routines (I have not figured out if they are mocking me for my lack of muscles or they just want me to direct the question to my hardcore sister but either way it makes me happy:).
The sis and I picked our 5 favorite deltoid moves and decided to share them with you because we are best friends after all. Each week we will choose a different muscle group to show you our favorite moves.
I have to tell you though…..deltoids (shoulders) are our FAVORITES because ripped deltoids make your whole arms look awesome:)
We don’t know the exact names for these moves but don’t worry I will make them up as we go.
Each move has two pictures to show you where to start and end for each rep. We do 12 reps and 3 sets of each move.
This is the, “Makes Me Want to Cry and Curl Up in a Ball by the 7th Rep” move. (We use 8-10 lbs. for this)
This is the, “Good Thing I Shaved My Armpits” move. (We use 10 lbs. for this)
This is the, “Make Sure Not to Hit Anything on the Way Up, Not that I Would Know” move. (We use 12 lbs. for this)
This is the, “Janae Only Uses Her Own Body Weight Instead of Hand Weights Because It Is So Hard” move. (We use 5 lbs. for this)
This is the, “Show off Your Ripped Arms to the Whole Gym” move. (We use 5-8 lbs. for this).
What muscle group do you want to see next?
-If someone says the quad, I will probably cry.
What is one of your gym pet peeves?
-Having to share a lane in the pool, people that are sick and touching every piece of equipment possible and when a stranger gets on the treadmill next to me if the entire gym is empty and there are 30 other treadmills to choose from (I know I am weird).
What is your FAVORITE form of protein on a salad?
-I LOVE anything fish (salmon, tuna, tilapia, shrimp etc)!!!
