Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week – I know that I did. It flew by, especially since I came back from spending Easter at home on Monday morning. It was nice to drive when there was very little traffic!
Speaking of home, I had a great trip back this past weekend. Friday night, we played poker with my mom’s family. Saturday, my mom and I hosted a bridal shower for my cousin who is getting married in May (it’s coming so quickly!). Sunday, we went to Easter Sunday Mass in the morning and spent time at home until later that afternoon when we went to my aunt and uncles to celebrate Easter with my dad’s family. And Monday morning, I was up and out the door by 7:50 am, headed back to work and real life again!
So this week, my boss and I road tripped to Orange Theory Fitness in Omaha (see more here). Basically, OT is a studio gym that has high-intensity fitness classes that fuse treadmills, rowers, and strength together into a complete workout.
Everyone gets a free trial, so we decided to give it a try, and I am so glad that we did! Not only was the atmosphere welcoming, but the class environment was uplifting and motivating. I loved the quick transitions between the treadmill, rower, and strength sections. It was also a partner workout, which I normally hate, but since it was my boss and I’s first time at OT, it worked out perfectly! If you are ever in a city near an OT, I highly recommend you stop in for a free class. Memberships aren’t cheap, but if you can afford it, the quality of class and workout is worth it!
Besides that, nothing else too special has happened this week, so I’m going to jump right into the workout of the week.
Workout of the Week
For this workout, I would recommend having a heavier set of dumbbells for the squats, lunges, and deadlifts, and a lighter set for the shoulder presses and bent over row. You can also have a kettlebell for the kettlebell swings, or you can use a single dumbbell or sub a different movement!
Either way, complete 3 rounds of each superset with minimal rest in between sets. When you have 3 rounds completed, you can rest 30 seconds to 1 minute before moving onto the next superset. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend, and I'll be back next week!
