Today’s workouts were awesome. Yes plural.
I started with a short 10 minute hiit (high intensity interval training) of jump rope skipping bright and early in the morning before my minis woke up.. I planned on doing a 20 minute hiit but my minis decided that 10 min was enough. They’re in control.
Then I went on to my kickboxing class and kicked ass. It felt great! The trainer added some fitness exercises like squats, lunges and push ups as a bonus to the training which was a nice surprise. Loved it.
Sooo then later on it was time for the Get Strong AF #4 workout. Yay.
Again I increased weights on all the compound movements. Took 30-60 sec rest between sets and finished off with hitting the shoulders hard.
- Barbel Squats 5×5
- Overhead Press 5×5
- Deadlift 1×5
- Face Pulls 4×6-8
- Last set drop set (3x until failure) starting with a heavier weight than your working weight.
- Seated Arnold Press 4×6-8
- Lateral Raise 4×6-8
I only did one set of Deadlifts because of the Squats I did before. Doing both exercises in one workout puts a lot of stress and pressure on the spine, hence the one set.
Do it right, get it right.
