Here is what I did this past week:
Monday – Bar Method – Mixed Class. As always the instructor Lauren, killed it in class. She’s one of the toughest teachers I have faced yet. Highly recommended!
Tuesday – AM Workout – 10 minutes of walking on the treadmill. (P.S. If you really want to hustle and sweat from walking on the treadmill, up your incline to 15. Yowsa – I was drenched even after 10 minutes and a 3.6 mph pace.) 30 minutes of calisthenics. And by the PM, I was feeling like a second workout for the day was going to be too much for my body, so I cancelled my class at Bar Method. (Tip: Listen to your body.)
Wednesday – Bar Method – Mixed Class. For some reason my lower back was really sore from the workout the day before, plus we did Standing Seat, which I am not a fan of because no matter how many modifications I do, it makes my knee feel a bit uncomfortable, so this wasn’t my best class. But I did finally get taught by the studio’s owner, Kate A, who to be honest kind of made me nervous (and is actually SO incredibly sweet!) I mean, she’s the owner therefore a bar method know it all!
Thursday – AM Workout – 10 minutes of walking on the treadmill and 30 minutes of calisthenics, during which I was lucky enough to get to do hurdles with these cool Nike contraptions. So much fun! Hopefully you were able to catch my sarcasm? Those thing are cute, but will certainly kick your butt. PM Bar Method – Mixed Class. We did a new version of Standing Seat, which made my knees feel a lot more comfortable! Woohoo!
Friday/Saturday/Sunday – Forced rest days due to being out of town. Just lots (but really), lots of walking and snacking my way throughout NYC.
So I must admit, I definitely missed my weekend Bar Method classes (a lot more than I thought I would) and am kind of (really) excited and looking forward to get my butt back into Bar Method tomorrow. We’ll see if I’m still saying that during thigh!
