Last week’s workouts were kind of a bugger. With a pinched nerve in my neck, I had restricts on what I could do with my upper body. Rather than do more damage, I stayed away from the weights to let things settle. As of right now, things are improved but still not 100%. What a pain in the neck. hahahaha!
45 minutes Arc Trainer
15 minutes Lateral X Trainer
35 minute run
Physical therapy. Originally my PT appt was for my ankle but my ankle is doing fantastic and my neck was killing me. Instead, we worked on the pinched nerve in my neck. My prescribed exercise? Making double chins x 20. Seriously. I laugh every single time and make a ridiculous noise with every rep.
You’re welcome for sparing you a picture of this beautiful sight.
After a couple of weeks off, I finally made a morning pool session. It was a frigid morning but the 80 degree water felt good.
30 minutes pool running
15 minutes kickboard
Bodyweight strength training for lower body
Squats with resistance band
Lunge matrix – front, side, reverse
Clam shells with resistance band
Single leg glute bridge
Single leg deadlift
And if you are wondering, I did not do these exercises in the pool or in a swimsuit.
40 minutes run
And it was a snow run! Just kidding. This was outside the ice arena. Hahaha!
30 minutes Arc Trainer
15 minutes Stepmill alternating 20 steps forward, 20 steps left foot leading, 20 steps right foot leading
A quick 30 minute run before jetting off to a morning of kid sports. At least I had some quiet before the busyness of the day started.
40 minute run
Core and glute work
I hoping that this week I’ll be able to get back to lifting as usual. I’m missing it so much! At least I have running to make me happy until then.
How was your week in workouts?
