My New Training Program

I went to the gym this morning to meet with the personal trainer, Gina, for a thirty minute session. The session actually ended up being about 40 minutes and even though we just kind of ran through the program that she set up for me, I got a good workout and my legs were exhausted.

Before the gym with crazy hair and Jaden in the background, trying to jump on his brother:

The program that she set up for me is a cardio and weight training circuit workout. There are three circuits, each one starting out with one and a half minutes of cardio and then a thirty-second sprint. High intensity to get my heart rate up, followed by weights. Each circuit is repeated three times.

My plan is to do this workout three days a week OR BodyPump two days a week and this workout one day a week, which is what I plan on doing. Also, if I want to increase my workouts to hopefully lose weight, I will add in two additional days of doing hour-long cardio on three different machines – treadmill, elliptical, and bike.

The two hardest parts for me were the walking lunges with a twist and the stationary bike at the end. I have no balance whatsoever, so I keep almost falling over with the walking twist lunges. And I don’t know if it was because the bike was at the end of the workout and I was getting tired, but my quads were screaming on that bike, and the 30 second sprint seemed like forever.

I was glad that I got a workout plan set up and that’s it something that I can easily stick too. The only downside is that since it’s a smaller gym, some of the machines that I need aren’t always available.

When I finished my workout and was leaving the gym, an older gentleman stopped me and asked if I was doing physical training for the police force. Why, no sir, I’m doing training to be less fat. That’s weird, right? Maybe I should become a police officer.

Has anyone ever mistaken you for a police officier? This was my first time. <— That’s a joke, I’m not crazy.
