Happy Monday! So this week should…SHOULD…be better than the last two. 3s a charm, right? I officially filled out the form to transfer between schools, now going into the Colombian School of Arts and Sciences and declaring a major in Political Science in the Spring if all goes as planned. I’m just happy all the language shenanigans are over. Thank you all higher powers that I get to speak English! To make up for those credits I dropped, I am taking a 3 credit Health and Wellness class on the topic of “Functional Fitness”. The text book is seriously like a health class text book and the class has a culminating end project where we design our own fitness plan. I’m pretty sure this class is going to be a breeze considering…well, health and fitness is basically my life. I have the class on Mondays and Wednesdays, so today will be my first day. Crossing my fingers it will be good!
Now, for that workout I promised. I like high reps. It’s just my thing. So I guess I am more of the “endurance” strength athlete if you will, but I don’t use light weights either. All I know is, it works for me, to each his/her own, right? The best thing is I can complete all of these exercises in my bedroom with the weights I have and then just run down to the gym to finish off the leg presses (since I sadly don’t have my barbell with me in college). There is one barbell rack in the gym, but I have been scared to use it. I’ve never used a rack, but I’m pretty sure I could figure it out. I’ve been creepily watching the guys set it up for chest presses and squats, so I think I know how to get it ready. But I’ll watch a few more times before I give it a try myself…I do miss my barbell squats!
So here is the lower body workout I threw together last week. It is a variation of a few of my favorites, but something new a fresh to keep me interested. This bad boy got me through some of the rough patches and emotions last week so it’s here to stay! That’s whats so wonderful about workout out. It really does have so many benefits and the endorphins and stress relief are what I think…the best! (These two benefits were even spoken about at length in my new textbook, haha!) I was nodding along and actually enjoyed ready a college health and fitness textbook!Read More
