Workout Wednesday

It’s Workout Wednesday, party people!!!… er, workout people? Fitness people? Party people sounds a heck of a lot better if you ask me ;)

Can I tell you about my morning for a minute? Yes? (Not that you have a choice in the matter…)

Okay, so I meant to get this post up bright and early today but a few things happened. First, I subbed a few classes and taught back-to-back Spinning then BODYPUMP then Spinning again. HELLO legs. Holy majoly that was difficult. But that isn’t really part of my story…

As I was teaching my first Spinning class of the day – and nearing the end of class, thank goodness! – I see my gym’s CEO stroll into the fitness room across the hall. You guys. Our CEO DOES NOT casually stroll into our group ex room unless there is an emergency. I’m certain my face looked something like the gritted teeth emoji as I hurriedly finished class and then sprinted across the hall to figure out what the heck could be the issue with group ex that needed our CEO’s attention.

Turns out the sound system in one of our busiest rooms decided to stop working. And my IT guy is out for the remainder of the week. FUN. I managed to scrounge up a couple of makeshift speakers for the instructor and then sprinted my booty to BODYPUMP. I was flustered but taught a pretty darn good class (except for the lunge track – sorry guys!) if I do say so myself… even if my legs wanted to fall off. Then it was back to Spinning.

THEN I ATE ALL THE FOOD. Well, a PB sammie, Post Workout Recovery in chocolate (because it tastes like chocolate milk – yummooooo) and a Quest Bar. So, not all the food but I forgot my wallet at home and that’s what I had in my bag. I survived.

Oh, and have I mentioned that I’m currently on antibiotics for my never ending cold turned upper respiratory infection that are wrecking havoc on my stomach? Food is not agreeing with me right now (not convenient when you teach 3 classes in a day…) and each time I eat, I bloat up like I’m 6 months pregnant. SUPER fun. And painful. But my head and chest are feeling MUCH better and that is what counts, right? All I know is that Augmentin should be recategorized as a diet pill… Since it’s preventing me from eating without pain, I’ll probably be super skinny by the time I’m done with my treatment, LOL.

Anyways, I digress. Moral of the story? There is no moral, ha. I should just anticipate everything breaking when I am unable to help (AKA in the middle of class) and our IT department is out of the office. Murphy’s Law, right?

Back to the topic at hand, WORKOUT WEDNESDAY! (Party people ;) Ha!) I’ve been contemplating writing a little series on Wednesdays – probably not EVERY Wednesday considering my current posting habits, but possibly every other Wednesday – about fitness and workouts and all that jazz. Whatcha think? Yay? Nay? I think I’ll start by focusing on a specific exercise each week that I tend to see performed incorrectly with my clients and/or in the gym. I’ll explain proper form and (hopefully) provide photos to help y’all do the exercise safely and effectively! AND I’ll give y’all a little workout to finish out the post.

Let me know your thoughts and if there are any exercises you’d like me to focus on first!
