I had my strength training session w/ my trainer last night. It was SUCKTASTIC! You know when you have an "off" workout. I felt really hot and shaky. Just was not feeling myself. My trainer made me drink 1/2 a gatorade before he sent me home because it seemed I needed some carbs and some electrolytes. I had been drinking plenty of water. I was taking longer breaks than normal as I did not feel quite right. He asked me if I wanted to cut the session short, but I said no, that I would try to do what I could and if I felt like I wanted to stop, I'd let him know. At any rate, I started w/ foam rolling and various stretches and then the workout was as follows:
*2 different styles of plank, 2 sets, 2 reps, hold for 15 secs.
*Romanian dead lifts: 1 set, 6 reps, 45 lbs; 1 set 5 reps, 75 lbs; 3 sets 7 reps, 90 lbs
*Modified split squats: 2 sets 6 reps
*Push ups w/ red cross fit band, hold for 2 seconds at bottom: 2 sets 4 reps
*Dumbbell rows, 1 set 6 reps per side, 25 lbs; 1 set 3 reps per side, 25 lbs
*1/2 kneeling press: 2 sets 6 reps, 15 lbs
I biked from work to my trainer's which is 2.3 miles and it took me 13:05. I biked from my trainer's to my house which is 3.25 miles and it took me 18:59.
