At lunch today I decided to try a workout that Jamie Eason recently created for FitnessRX.com. The workout is called Jamie Eason’s 30 day knockout TOTAL BODY workout. See the full workout HERE.
As always, I trust any workout that Jamie Eason comes up with. I had such great success with her LiveFit program (My results) that I figured I’d give this one a try too. I don’t know if I’ll do it for a full 30 days but I may. I always like to try new programs so I don’t get bored.
I also like that it’s an upper body / lower body split. I’m so used to only working each muscle group one time a week. This will allow me to work each group 2+ times a week (Make sure you always rest your muscles at least 48 hours before working the same group again!)
Weights I used:
Seated DB Shoulder Press: 25lb dbs to failure then dropped to 20lb dbs.
Skull Crushers superset with Narrow grip bench: 30lb barbell
DB Lateral Raises: 15 lbs
Cable Chest Flyes: 10-15lbs
Rear Delts: 40-50 lbs (I used rear delt machine, not cables)
Wide grip lat pulldown: 65-70lbs
Reverse Grip pulldown: 55lbs
Alternating DB Curls: 15lbs
I didn’t have much time afterwards so I just ran on the treadmill for 5 minutes at 6.5mph. It’s amazing how much I can sweat in just a few minutes haha. Five min of cardio..that’s my kinda day
As for the rest of the program…it looks like this…
Saturday morning my mom and step-dad came to visit. We spent the morning showing them our rental properties (including my blog house!). Then we hit up my mom’s favorite place…the casino.
Ryan and I played a little roulette. He won $20! Woohoo!
I bet $5 and lost $5. I’m the worst gambler. I hate it. I don’t think I’ve ever spent more than $20 at one time in a casino…I just hate losing money!
We ate a whole bunch on Saturday and Sunday. I had way too many cheat meals. We went to Cheeseburger in Paradise on Saturday night and then Cracker Barrel on Sunday. Oops. I think I gained about 5 pounds this weekend. CRAP!!!
On Sunday I had a little pre-meal-prep snack of tuna and crackers (I tried Triscuits made with brown rice and sweet potato and they are delish!)
Then I hit up the mall because I had to get my best friend some bachelorette party gifts for next weekend. I had a little bit of fun with that
Then of course I tried on some dresses because lately I have been dress-obsessed!
I LOVED this one from Banana Republic. It was from their Sloan Collection. I’ll have to save up my pennies for this one!
