Another day, another workout! Now I am less then a week away from Mexico and find myself getting more and more motivated to look great in a bikini. Today was a triceps and shoulders day for me, no cardio although I did warm up 5 mins on the elliptical. Here is what the workout looked like:
Wednesday (Triceps & Shoulders)
Circuit #1: 15 reps, repeat 3 times
Triceps dumbbell kickbacks (15 each arm)
Overhead tricep extension
Circuit #2: 10 reps, repeat 3 times
Tricep push down on cables
Tricep overhead extensions on cables (with rope)
One arm dumbell tricep extension
Circuit #3: 10 reps, repeat 3 times
Alternating deltoid raise
Upright row with barbell
One arm side lateral raise
This may sound like I am speaking a foreign language, but we all start somewhere so if you don’t know what these exercises look like you are not alone! I would suggest looking up on bodybuilding.com where they have a whole library of these exercises and pictures. Each day we make progress and each day it gets easier!
I also wanted to give a quick review on my new Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 because these are the absolute best Nike shoes I have ever owned! I usually wear my Flyknit Racers, but those have barely any support and have felt some uncomfortable pain in my knees after long runs. I have an extremely narrow and flat foot so it’s hard to find running shoes that are comfortable and tight on my long feet, but I’ve finally found them!
Why I love Nike Zoom Pegasus (without getting too shoe techy):
- Cushion and responsiveness is incredible! This shoe is firmer in the heel and forefoot and supports my foot like no other shoe has before.
- Both for heavier runners and beginners. I wear them on a long run and also days at the gym- very versatile.
- Great looking- because why would I buy an ugly running shoe 😉
Flynknit Racers are now my errand running shoes, and these new Zoom Pegasus 31’s are my ultimate workout shoes. I’ve finally found my shoe match. yay!
What’s your favorite running shoe?
