Strength and Conditioning. GO.

Missions. Inspirations. Change. Drive. Challenge. Progression. Forward. Determination. Power. Push.
Need a change? Try this.

Aim for 8-12 reps and 2-3 sets
(just an fyi, this is the reps/sets I have been doing to progress to heavier weights and less reps. Feel free to adjust if need be.)
I did not add what weight to use because we are all different. Choose a weight that is challenging, heavy, and possibly turns a few heads in the gym. The goal is to overload the muscle and be efficient.

 

(1)   Bicep Curl to Overhead Press

(2)   Lap Pulldown

(3)   Bench Press

(4)   Reverse Flies

Sprints on bike – 30 seconds on/ 30 off x 3 (1:1)
      (1)   Kettle Bell Swings x 15
      (2)   Tricep Pressdown
      (3)   Barbell Upright Rows
Sprints on bike – 30 seconds on/ 30 off x 3 (1:1)
      (1)   Leg Extensions
      (2)   Sit to Stand on Free Squat
Sprints on bike – 30 seconds on/ 30 off x 3 (1:1)

      (1)   Assisted Pull-Ups

      (2)   Plate French Press
As always, it is consistency and eating behaviors that play the biggest part. Keep it fresh. Change things up. Find something you enjoy!

2 x 2

Happy Post-Marathon-ing!

P and I finished the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in 4:20. This was a PR for both of us (2) and we credit it to the individuals we were running for -Bridgett Peterson and Kathy Rosencrants (x 2). What wonderful individuals they are and it was truly an honor! Thank you to everyone who supported us in this endeavor!

Below is a collection of pictures I took along the route. I was THAT girl with the phone taking pictures. I am so glad I was THAT girl because these are some great pictures!



We literally RAN in to each other. Suzanne and I cheered together in high school. She moved to San Diego and was volunteering for the marathon. Special moment!

Not a special moment. "Are we there yet?"

Thank you Mama C!!

P and I are excited and feel accomplished in closing this chapter. Our bodies are feeling it today and we are relieved to know that our well-deserved break is here. Onward to the next chapter in the health and wellness book...
