Next Big WorkoutPosted: December 13, 2010
I’m sore; gloriously, gloriously sore.
You know, that sore that hurts so good after an epic workout? That sore that makes you wince but makes you smile every time you lower yourself into a chair or lift anything heavier than the t.v. remote? Yup, I’m that sort of sore.
The maintenance man was the only soul in the building when I arrived…
Naturally, I documented my dorkiness (and my mad balance ball skillz) before a few stretches to get in the zone.
Having the gym to myself was pretty much the best thing I could have asked for – I’m always afraid that I’ll use a machine wrong and look like an absolute moron, so being the only person there was the perfect opportunity to jump in, learn the moves, and test the various settings to best suit my (newbie) ability level! Not having to wait for/readjust machines between sets rocked too 😀
|Machine/Move||Weight||# of Reps (x3 sets of each)|
|Horizontal Leg Curl||50||15|
|Seated Leg Press||90||15|
|Lat Pull Down||40||15|
I followed that up with a 5 minute warmup and then a 5k run:
|.25 mile||5%||3.5 mph|
|1 mile||2%||5 mph|
|1 mile||1%||5.4 mph|
|1 mile||0%||6.0 mph|
|.10 mile||0%||7.5 mph|
Negative splits – hells yes!
Faith’s Best of Next Big Thing 2010 Playlist
With a perfect alternative rock playlist to sing along with, it’s no wonder I was able to bust out such an inclusive workout! After last weekend’s trip to Next Big Thing, I downloaded a ridiculous amount of new music and have been rocking out nonstop to my faves from the NBT artists!
Prepare to have your world rocked.
Let the downloading and the sweating commence!
