Fitness Friday - Week 8

Ahhh, where did February go??? March is in two days! This means we're eight weeks into Fitness Friday! Woohoo!

Saturday I went on the elliptical for 20 minutes. Literally every elliptical machine at my gym is different. I can go on level 4 on two different machines and it will feel completely different. One will be normal and one will be extremely hard. The elliptical I went on was the difficult one. I did 5 minutes on level 4, 10 minutes on level 5, and 5 minutes on level 4. Afterwards I went on the spin bike for 40 minutes. I did 10 minutes on easy, 10 minutes on medium, 15 minutes on hard, and 5 minutes on medium. 

On Monday I went to Zumba for the first time in forever! I hadn't been in almost two weeks! Wednesday I went to Barre Buns. I also went on the elliptical for 15 minutes on level 3. Yesterday I worked out at home. I stretched for 20 minutes and I danced for 42 minutes. Today I went to Barre Buns class. It was really difficult! I also went on the spin bike for 30 minutes. I did 10 minutes on easy, 10 minutes on medium, and 10 minutes on hard. I then went on the elliptical for 15 minutes. I did 10 minutes on level 4 and 5 minutes on level 3.

~Challenge~ 

I'm going to start giving actual workouts as challenges. This week we are going to focus on arms. Your challenge is to do this workout 1-2 times. If you decide to do this workout twice, spread out the days. Give yourself at least one day of rest in-between.


For those of you who do not know what Inchworms and Snow Angels are, here is a short description of each: 

Inchworms- Stand up straight with your feet a little bit more than shoulder-width apart. Put your hands on the ground and slowly walk them out until you are in a plank. Do one push-up. Slowly walk your hands back to your feet. Repeat.

Snow Angels- Stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Raise your arms directly above your head, keeping them straight (hands inline with your elbows). Slowly bend your elbows until they touch your rib cage. Make sure to keep your elbows back, and pinch your shoulder blades down and together. Raise your arms back up to the starting position. Repeat.
