My husband's birthday is tomorrow, but we celebrated over the weekend by going out for pizza, of course, because that's his fave. My Italian boy from New York loooves his pizza! And I made him his favorite pumpkin cake that he requests every year. It's soooo good.
Well, I had a great workout this morning, fueled by yesterday's pizza and pumpkin cake. :) I switched some things up for this month, and I really liked today's upper body workout:
1)Clean and jerks: worked up to 130x1
(the heaviest I've cleaned or jerked in a LONG time....like, years!)
2)Handstand pushups: 5-4-3-3-3-3-3
3a)Wide grip pullups: 7-6-6-6/ chin-ups x10
3b)DB chest press: 45x 8-8-8-8
4)Lateral raises: 2x12/ 1x8/6/6 (drop sets)
5)Bentover lateral raises: 2x12
Finisher: 5 rounds of :
25 rope slams + 30 double unders
Speaking of goals, this is the time of year I love setting goals to work on, rather than waiting for the new year. It just gives you some extra motivation to train hard through the holidays when you have a goal. Do any of you have any goals you're currently working on? Mine are to really hit my calves hard to really try to get them to grow, keep working at my front leverand start working on getting better at handstand pushups again, since I haven't been doing them all that much lately.
In other exciting news, I got a few Christmas presents wrapped last week, yay!!
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT WEEK!
