During the school year I do most of my lifting at home, but this summer, I have made a comeback at the gym. Paul and I go together but don't workout together. We do our own thing.
My "own thing" these days is a little different than normal. I'm still am not lifting lower body because it has bothered my ITB for years. I know, it is sad. I do work on the floor for my glutes and legs, which you will see.
For the past couple months I have altered what I do for upper body because my shoulder had been bothering me. Slowly but surely, it went away. I'm not sure if it went away because I have taken out certain exercises and lowered some of my weights, or if it just went away on it's own. Whatever it is, I'm happy that it's almost gone!
Today I'll show you what I did on Sunday, which is pretty standard for me right now. Paul took a bunch of pictures for the blog! Ideally, I lift twice a week, but I haven't been diligent about it this summer. Some weeks I only lift once. I should probably get back on a schedule...
Stability Ball Pull Ins
Sometimes I do this in between circuits, sometimes I do it while I wait for Paul to finish up, and sometimes I wait and do it at home while I watch CNN.
Pigeon Pose is a staple.
I also stretch my hammies and calves.
I foam roll my calves, hammies, glutes, back, and ITB
Do you do any of these exercises?
