Tuesday Workout

I decided to split my workout in half today- cardio in the AM and weights in the afternoon. Work is first of course, and Xander will be good with the sitter until 5pm.

Sauna lover.

Sauna provides many health benefits. Saunas relieve stress, relaxes the muscles, soothe aches and pain and most all they just feel good. But lets understand this. I go into the sauna because mainly – IT FEELS good. Not for weight loss. You are not burning major calories sitting in a sauna. I use the sauna as part of my workout regime. Some days I skip the sauna and some days I want that peace and quiet – and alone time.

so, managment says not to pour water in the sauna heat box, guess someone wanted it extra hot today. I felt like my eyelashes were burning off my face!!

Today I did my intermittent running, and jumped in the sauna. I did my legs/butt exercise at home in my gym garage. Did I mention how much I love my gym garage?

Today’s workout went as :

Warm Up Wide Stance Bodyweight Squat: 3 sets x 10 reps
Wide Stance Barbell Squat: 5 sets x 12 reps
Warm Up Stationary Lunges: 3 sets x 20 reps (each leg)
Oblique Crunches: 4 sets x 12 reps (2 sets per side)
Warm Up Glute Bridge: 3 sets x 20 reps
Glutes Kickback: 4 sets x 20 reps (each leg)

Oh those lunges…do you really want those thighs crying? Try doing lunges all day. I love them, and I hate them. My workouts are all about weight resistance and cardio.
