Contest Prep, training

cardio routine

today was a rare day. I did not want to go to the gym. last night was my best friends birthday and we stayed out late; it was so much fun! but it really messes up the rest of my day because I have to cook and eat breakfast by 7am at the latest to get all my meals in, so this morning I woke up and ate breakfast, went back to sleep for 2 hours, woke up and ate my second meal before going to the gym at 11am. it’s simply exhausting. and I worked upper body a lot this week and did it again today, I feel like my muscles were just rebelling. BUT I still went and had an awesome workout and I was happy I pushed through mentally and physically after it was over. I did some accessory work yesterday, focused more on chest and triceps today with abs and a new cardio routine! looking forward to deadlifting tomorrow morning after breakfast with the gym group. what a wonderful weekend it has been!

this week my cardio will increase to 50 minutes 5 times a week. I’m going to do 2 out of 5 days low impact, basically what I’ve been doing. another 2 days will be more of a medium intensity cardio, just pushing myself a little more and keeping my heart rate elevated. only 1 day a week will be high intensity consisting of sprints (30 seconds on/30 seconds off.) I’m excited to try this out over the next few weeks and see what results come of it!
