Debbie Reunion....Sitting Down YEEEEEEOUCH!!!!

As most of you know Debbie was on vacation over Christmas and the first week of January and then I was sick so it had been almost a full month since I had worked out with Debbie and a couple weeks since I had an good intense workout because of bronchitis and various sickness. Anyhoozle, I hit it on Monday morning with Debbie and let me tell you it was BRUTAL.

Because Amber and I had done SOME leg stuff on Saturday my legs were still pretty stiff. Well, let me tell you, the pain I felt from Saturday was NOTHING like what I feel today. I am going to attempt to remember the workout but it is kind of like having a traumatic experience - you put it out of your head as quick as you can. :)
  • 5 minute run warm up
  • Started with a set of abs on the decline ab bench - 15 twists to one side, 15 in the middle and 15 twits to the other side.
  • Hack squats w/50lbs - 5 sets of 20 w/30 second rests in between
  • Jump rope for 1 minute
  • Walk a lap (Debbie DID go easy on me here with allowing me to walk)
  • Hack squats w/70lbs - 5 sets of 15 w/30 second rests in between
  • Jump rope for 1 minute
  • Walk a lap
  • Hack squats w/90lbs - 4 sets of 8-10
  • Jump rope for 1 minute
  • Walk a lap
  • Medicine ball squat and shoulder raises (one with right arm, one to the center both arms, one with left arm, one to the center with both arms) 4=1 to 10 (SUPER HIGH HEART RATE!)
  • Sled press - 4 plates each side, 20 reps; 3 plates each side, 20 reps; 2 plates each side, 20 reps; 1 plate each side, 20 reps
  • Medicine ball squat and shoulder raises (two w/right arm, two to the center, two w/left arm, two to the center) 8=1 to 10
  • Tight lunges half lap w/15 lb dumbbells
  • Quad extensions w/50lbs - 3 sets of 20
  • Box jumps - 20 inches - 4 sets of 10 - deep squats on the jump off
  • Walk a lap
  • 10 sets of stairs
  • Backward tight lunges half lap w/15 lb dumbbells
  • Box jumps - 23 inches - 3 sets of 10 - deep squats on the jump off

Holy crap. 1085 calories in an hour and 45 mins. Crazy pain.

Today I am struggling walking...sitting....sleeping....moving. But I know it is where I need to go to reach my goals so I am happy with the pain. Well....maybe not happy but I know it is what I need to do to achieve my goals.

I am out of town for work so I won't be able to workout with Debbie again until Friday. And I am going to try to workout in the morning but it will be EARLY. Like 4am. :(

Feeling the love come back for taking care of me! So you take care of you.

Ha ha, I just wrote my workout then read yours, now I feel like a woose!!! I am surprised you were able to box jump or whatever after all of that!!!


Cathy said...

Wow! What a workout!
What are you eating to fuel your body for this?

No worries girl! I was still sore yesterday morning when I worked out with Debbie. Worked out mainly upper body. I ended up doing a cardio workout last night for 45 minutes to try to flush some of the lactic acid out of my legs. I'm feeling pretty good today, although with it being 10 degrees when I woke up, I decided it would be in my best interest to hit snooze and just get in cardio after work tonight :) Glad to have you back, and I can't wait for the workout fun we will have this weekend!

Amber: Isnt it so much easier to get in that morning workout when you know even just the walk to your car will not lead to a frozen face!? It is so much easier to just lay under the covers. I cannot wait for summer.

Ok,I just found out that woose is actually "wuss". I was thinking the double o could sound like it does in "cookie".

Ok ladies...I have been in KC all week at the Wal-Mart show - SO VERY sorry for the late response to all of your awesome comments!!!
So glad you printed it out - it was TOUGH! I actually print all of my workouts (stole this from Amber) and put it in a master binder. It is great on those days when you don't want to "think" about your workout. You are welcome on HR monitor.
You are hilarious! I have no idea how to spell woose/wuss. Is it in the dictionary? :) The box jumps were brutal. Mentally and physically took everything out of me.
I eat clean with the exception of a cheat meal once a week. If I know I am working out with Debbie I will try to eat a complex carb the night before to get some glycogen in my system. I love working out with Debbie but she is tough and I need all the help I can get!
I am glad to be back too chica! Sounds like you hit it like a rock start this week! I knew you would! I don't think I am going to have to travel for work for a LOOOONG time so it is time for me to get my butt in gear again! :) Thanks for being such a great friend and motivator.
