GET MORE FIT!!~S6day34

 

I spent the morning motivating myself to get MORE FIT!! Honestly I am VERY fit compared to 95% of the population BUT, I know I am about 50-70% as fit as I can get. I am in a “comfort zone” and plan to break through and GET MORE FIT!!

Some of the sites I visited today were very motivational…I read blogs by Tri-athletes, Olympians, Coaches, etc….I visited the OLYMPIC website. I checked out some cool “sports” including the Triathlon, Judo, Luge, and Modern Pentathlon~ Oh and did you know Women’s Boxing will be in the 2012 Summer Olympics for the first time?

I also visited some competition sites for events coming up near the Las Vegas Area…I figured that’s a fun place for friends (team buffmother) to possibly gather for a fitness event…Hmmmm….Just thinking 🙂 And I did some research on PH balance, water/sodium intake, Olympic lifting programs, training programs for triathletes and bodybuilders…It’s all very MOTIVATING stuff and makes me even more aware of the fact I KNOW I can get MORE FIT!!
Will you JOIN ME in that resolve?

GET  it done starting NOW: Today is Day 34…and your workout is as follows~

Warm up- 6 minutes of cardio- any type… ease into it, prepare your body and mind for an effective workout.

Lower Body #2, ABS and Intervals

1- Squats– 3 sets of 10 (3×10)
…first set medium wt. warm up, second set heavier, heavier if needed ; last set 10th rep should be close to failure

2- Dead Lifts– 3×10; Knees slightly bent (romanians)

5- Walking Lunges 2×15

  1. Thanks for the reminder that we don’t want to compare ourselves to the rest of the population … we just need to know where we can go and strive to get there!

    Visiting parents = ability to get workout in early in the day. So yay! Done already! Just gotta keep the food consumption reasonable during all the festivities of the day. Hope you all have a great one!

  2. Wonderful blog today. Really helps keep the fire burning through the remainder of this challenge. I’m excited to really push this last week and make the changes that will keep me moving toward getting me where I know I need to be. Will check out some of these links too. Thanks!

  3. Ugh I would LOVE to go to Vegas! I got married last September and we went to Vegas for our honeymoon. It would be so incredible to go back to Vegas more Sizzlin’ than ever and get to see you guys in person! Please keep us posted on any up-coming events! BTW rocked my work out today! 😉

  4. Great blog, thanks for sharing the links. I visited many of them today, and they were very interesting. I especially liked the one about pH balance. I’m back to drinking apple cider vinegar-I forgot the benefits of it. So thanks for pointing me back on course!

  5. Love your trophy photo! It takes hard work to earn those – great job! Thanks for the websites.

  6. I am fordging forward. I too am far far more fit than the vast majority of the women i see even those who are mych younger But! I am not as fit as i could be. That is my goal. To be as fit as all the pictures i see of you Michelle:-). Press on toward the goal..physically and spirityally!
