Do you have trouble waking up in the morning to workout? Yeah, me too. That’s why when I woke up at 6am this morning I took it as a sign that I was supposed to walk over to the complex’s gym for a quick pre-work workout!
Let me back you up with a history of my morning workouts.
January-March: Went to 5:40/6:15am bootcamp and headed straight to work
March-Now: Hah – people workout that early?
Ever since I started kickboxing, I decided that I didn’t need to double my workouts. Now, I’m deciding that I need to push myself even harder and add more weight training to my daily routine. The morning is a great way to hit the weights in addition to my evening kickboxing/group exercise routine.
I found the Jamie Eason LiveFit trainer and heard great reviews so I decided to give it a try. For those of you who want to incorporate more weight training in your workouts, here’s what the program has for back/bis on day 2. For each move you will do 3 sets of 12 reps with 1 minute of rest in between. If you don’t have time to complete it in the morning (like I did) – try for 2 sets of 12 – your effort is what counts! :
- Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns
- One arm dumbell row
- seated cable row
- Underhand cable pulldowns
- Dumbell alternative bicep curls (used 10/15 weights)
- One arm dumbell preacher curl
- Standing bicep cable curls
Now I’m refreshed and ready to start my Friday. It’s amazing how a short workout can lift your mood and energize you. I hope you enjoy this workout as much as I did!
Happy friday 🙂
