Quick Back Workout & Insanity Max30



I am always looking forward to the weekend because it’s time to spend with friends and family! Free time is always nice.

Tomorrow morning I am running a morning Boot Camp class, and then Ava & I will be going to Stratford, CT to hang out with my best girl friends for the afternoon.

This week I started the Insanity MAX30 program. They are 30 minute bodyweight workouts that are seriously no joke.

I even took a selfie so you could see my sweat..


BUT you can’t see it in the pic. Just super red cheeks. This workout was similar to my boot camp workout but I was dying and I maxed out at 9 minutes and 55 seconds. I was gasping for air but for some raeason kept going.

I also started drinking the Shakeology which pairs with the workout and it is super delicious. I looked forward to drinking it last night after Boot Camp.


On Tuesday I completed a quick back workout that I wanted to share with you.  I didn’t have a lot of time to spend in the gym for myself so I got to it right away with an 8 minute Warm-Up on the elliptical. I got my heart rate up and my body warm pretty quickly. I then completed this workout:


Complete 3-4 sets of each exercise.
SEATED ROW (single arm attachments)
Set 1 Complete 10 reps
Set 2 Complete 8 reps
Set 3 Complete 6 reps
PULL-UPS (using assisted pull-up machine)
Set 1 Complete 10 reps
Set 2 Complete 8 reps
Set 3 Complete 6 reps
Set 1 Complete 10 reps
Set 2 Complete 8 reps
Set 3 Complete 6 reps
For each of these exercises I increased the weights with each set. I also took 30 seconds rest in between each exercise.
In combination with shoveling my back was crazy sore the next day! Wow :)
Do you ever focus on just lifting your back?
Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend?
