Today at the Y, I went to a class called Body Pump. It's a great strength training workout that really gets the heartrate going. Basically you get a bar and weights, and you work out a specific muscle group nonstop for a song at a time. The class was an hour long, full of squats, lunges, rows, bicep curls, crunches, pushups, and oh.my.god. more shoulder presses and chest presses than I've ever done. I'm not sore, but my arms feel like jelly. I can barely pick them up. I'm so glad that I've getting a great upper body workout with this class!
So it looks like my tentative schedule is going to be
Monday - Spinning
Tuesday - Body Pump
Wednesday - Spinning
Thursday - Body Pump
Friday - off or Elliptical
Saturday - Run at home 5-7 miles, Yoga at the Y
Sunday - Run at home 4-5 miles
I think that this will be a good schedule to keep for at least the next few months while I'm working on losing the last bit of weight. After that, I'll probably go to working out 5 days per week.
I am so tired, so I'm off to watch The Office....
