Yesterday, I decided to lift, and other than teaching piano lessons in the morning, I had the rest of the day to myself. (I worked Monday and Tuesday, then had off Wednesday and today- I know it's weird. don't ask because I have no answers for that one!)
The workout I am sharing with you below should have taken 45 minutes to an hour. It took me TWO HOURS!!!!
Here's what I did....
1. Warm Up: Rotator cuff, shoulder press
2. Put hair in ponytail, wash face, brush teeth, pee
3. More warm ups: Assisted pull ups
4. Reply to a blog comment
5. 3 wide grip pull ups
6. Check Big Brother message boards
7. 2.25 wide grip pull ups (couldn't get up the whole way on the last one)
8. More message boards.
9. 2 wide grip pull ups
11. 2 wide grip pull ups
12. Read this article and got extremely pissed.
13. 1 more wide grip pull up
14. Changed into my workout clothes.
In my defense, I need considerable rest time in between even small sets of pull ups. But as you can see, my lackadaisical behavior was a little extreme!
The rest of my workout went fairly well, and I won't give you all the details like I did up above, but please know there were considerable amounts of blog reading, Youtube watching, and kitty petting in between each one of my sets!
Dumbbell Row- 5x10x25lb
Band asst. pull ups (wide grip)- 4x5
Bicycle Crunches- 4x40
Band asst. pull ups (neutral grip)- 4x6
Bicep Curls- 4x10x15lb
Stability Ball Pass-4x8
I guess the good news is, unless I plan my lifting for the weekends, now that school is back in session I will be forced to either get up at 4am so I have a full two hours for these lazy workouts, or I will get my butt in gear and have my lifting workouts more focused! You all know I don't like to get up any earlier than I need to, so I suppose I am going to have to get my head back in the game and reserve lifting time for lifting, not catching up on my interwebs!
Can you relate to any of this?
