Wednesday’s wicked workout

No leg work, but bench press  in dreams are equally exhausting

Surprisingly I had a good day. It’s hot, it’s Fiji and I still managed to get moving throughout the day without having a nap today. Yesterday’s abs workout didn’t leave any noteworthy traces, so I might add some weights next week and maybe swap some exercises … will see.

Today’s afternoon workout was targeted to my lower back, gluts and hammies. Here is what I came up with. First of all I can mention I did 3 rounds today *tap on my shoulder*.

  • single leg split squat
  • lunges
  • bodyweight superman
  • bodyweight glute kickback
  • bodyweight bridge
  • step ups

My biggest concern was that I will stuff my lower back again, so I didn’t add any additional weights … and so far so good. Now, maybe 4 hours and a walk later .. I can feel my thighs again. I know I should use my hammies and glutes, but they are still not kicking in properly. Still too tight and then my thighs take over … and that means more stretching and more sessions on the tennis ball again to loosen them up.

Today’s morning included also a bit more jogging than just walking. I am still surprised how low my endurance is … as little as 50m slow jog and I am exhausted or maybe my leg makes me feel exhausted. I might also check my thyroid … it might play with my mind these days. I am convinced as long as I keep moving and can therefore kick some endorphines into my system, I can trigger my body to heal itself. Fighting the good fight of faith 🙂

The 3 compulsory small exercises I am doing after the walk/jog are still happening … I especially love these 10 burpees NOT!

Tomorrow shoulders … already put down a list of exercises into iMuscle .. will see what I can still move by tomorrow, hahaha!
