Hello everyone! So, this week has been very jam packed. We have had regionals for volleyball, just finished up divisions for football and now starting wrestling. Not to mention fighting off viruses, fevers and ear infections. Honestly, I don't know where the time to do it all came from...Oy-Vey!
It goes without saying, I have had very little time to do anything for myself in this crazy week. However, there are no excuses...as my Buddy says, "one day of not training can set you back weeks or months". Yeah I'm not training like the kiddos do anymore but I am an example. If they see me making time, they will make time; if they see make excuses, they will make excuses.
All of my workouts this week, accept Friday, were 5 minutes long. Here is how my week looked...
I chose this one for Monday to get my body in gear for the week...
I alternated the high knees for high knees, then butt kicks and then jumping jacks with the jump rope. *Also, for spinal injuries like I have, always make sure your hands are under your shoulders at all times and neutral spine period! This protects your C vertebras. Also, the pistol squats you can do holding onto a chair or by going half way down to sit in the chair instead of all the way down, if you are at beginner level.
This workout is one of my favorite ones. Really works and tones:)
I was feeling quite soar today, my neck was really hurting and I had bad headaches from it. So I thought today would be a good day for a little recovery so I did this yoga burst. Then I spent some time stretching and foam rolling before bed.
I was right as rain today after a good stretch and foam rolling. So this was my workout today. I just love dumbbell swings! I did full swings up like a cling to get my arms a little more. I omitted the weights with the jump lunges as it is too much for my neck, so body weight it was. The ninja jumps are AWESOME! Make sure you land proper on these in a good squat, no toes over the knees. If you can't then just step up instead of jump. They make you feel totally rad!
Today I did training with the kiddos. We ran about 2 miles. Then came home a stretched real good and finally, worked on take downs for wrestling with the Buddy for about 20 min before his meet.
As always, make sure you warm up good for at least 5 minutes to get your joints going, knees should not pop. A good stretch is crucial. I try to do yoga at least one day a week and foam roll before bed. *note: I am not a Dr. or licensed trainer. I am just sharing what I like to do and what has worked for me. Always consult a health care professional before starting physical activities. *note: I am not paid by Zuzka in any way, she doesn't know I exist. I simply have been fallowing her workouts for 3 years now and love her training. It is effective for me and short and sweet for a busy Momma. That is all.
