Happy Weekend everyone! Today, I'll be doing a review of another group exercise I do at my gym called Group Power! Let's get right into it.
First off, the description in our program guide is "This 60-minute barbell program
strengthens all your major muscles
in an inspiring, motivating group
environment with simple, athletic
movements such as squats, lunges,
presses and curls."
Let me tell you, this is one intense workout! For the entire 60 minutes, we're constantly moving and lifting and by the end I'm a pool of sweat! We work out all the major muscle groups - Legs, Chest, Triceps, Biceps, Glutes, Shoulders, and Core with light to moderate weights. We also use a step to do exercises like chest presses and split squats.
For each song, we focus on one muscle group, and do a variety of exercises with lots of repetitions, set to the beat of the music. The tempo of the exercise is constantly changing (for example, if we're doing chest presses, we might d…
Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by today for the second "What's New With You" Linkup! Kristen and I were so happy with the response from our first one, so I can't wait to read all of your posts again today!
Let's get into it and talk about what's new in my world!
Yes..again. I hope that one month I'll be able to take this off my list! I've talked a lot about the ups and downs of house hunting, and I finally have some positive updates to share. First, some story time.
I talked last month about getting into a bidding war for house #1 and losing. Right after that, a great house popped up on the market in my ideal neighborhood for a steal. I knew it would go quickly, so I scheduled a visit with my realtor that night and had my parents come along. We pulled up, and- no lie- there were ten other people there. Crazy! We then learned that there were offers pouring in for this house and we had 24 hours to put in our highest and best of…
Feels so weird to be typing out June- if March felt like it lasted a year then May felt like an hour. It went by so quickly and I can't believe that it will be officially summer soon (even if it feels like we're already there). This was a pretty insane month, which I talked about in my weekly workout recap. Lots of highs, and lots of lows. Today I'll try to stay focused on the good things that happened, and see how my month went, starting with my highlight, which was getting back to trail running. I've always loved running on trails and started my running journey years and years ago (when I was around 10 years old) on the trails in Riverview Park. A few of my friends are doing the Rachel Carson challenge this year and have been exploring local trails, and now that my county is allowing gatherings up to 25 I've joined them for a few runs. It's so nice to be in nature, be surrounded by beauty, and get in an amazing workout. Now let's talk about how I did on m…
