This has been a fun week. Summer is finally here and I'm definitely excited for summer activities. Yesterday was the Orem Summer Festival, so we decided that we'd take the little guy and head out for a day of fun. There was great food, rides and local entertainment. It was a blast.
I love summer activities with my son. I realize however that in coming years, the activities will require more and more "activity" from me. Especially because we're expecting our second. Like I've said before, my children and family are the greatest motivations for me to get and stay healthy. I'm sure that in the coming years, I'll be running around soccer fields, swimming in pools, surfing, playing football, wrestling and shooting hoops. I tell you what...it would also be cool to be able to coach my kids as well I definitely can't wait. Time and effort today is an investment in the future.
Here's what my workouts looked like this past week:
Monday: Homebound WOD
With a running clock, each minute do the following:
5 ground to overhead dumbbell snatches - 25 lbs
10 push ups
15 minutes of jump roping.
I did 14 rounds
This was a great workout that a friend of mine and I did of:
2x20 Back Squats
3x8 Clean and Press
3x6 Front Squats
Wednesday: Upper Body
We broke our workout up into two different sections.
Section 1 - we tried to turn this into a little metcon and do it as fast as we could:
2x20 Incline bench press
50 push ups
3x12 Incline bench press
50 push ups
Supersets of 3x10 T-rows and 3x8 rear deltoid shrug
Supersets of 3x10 lateral bungee raises and 3x30 overhead plate presses
Elliptical Machine - 4.2 miles in 40 minutes
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 100s workout
I completed the workout in 27:10 - burpees and consistent double-unders are still a challenge for me, but I'm definitely getting better.
I'm excited for another fun week of working out and staying healthy. Enjoy yours.
