So week 4 of my 6 weeks to shred challenge started on a Sunday because of our unplanned trip to visit my mom in the city. I took Monday for my rest day and we are now on the second training day of the Rock Solid program I’m following for my challenge.
The 4th week of the Rock Solid program suggests 4 training days but if you have noticed from my 3rd week I opted to workout 6 days out of 7. I decided to increase my training days because 1) my body and mind actually craves it; and 2) I tend to become lazy if I stop moving. So since the ball has started rolling why not keep it going, right?
This also goes along with the “new” thinking I’m working hard to really get good at, do something you love. Well, you all know that I’m not very strict with my diet because I love food. And since it’s something I struggle with a lot in this challenge why not counteract it with my love to workout. Yeah, I’m saying it! I now love to workout! So I am taking full advantage of that mentality right now! 🙂
Early Morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee
Breakfast: homemade mini crab quiche, glass of orange juice
Lunch: chowmein noodles, crab quiche
Dinner: Crockpot Mexican Style Pork Carnitas, corn on cob, coleslaw
The routine below is the Beach body routine of Rock Solid Kettlebell program. And I’m very happy that my hubby bought me the missing 40 lbs in our kettlebell collection. Now, I can gradually work on increasing my weights without the big leap in the middle. (two thumbs up!)
Goblet squats: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 8 reps/ 35 lbs, 35 lbs, 40 lbs
High swings: 3 sets/ 5 reps/ 40 lbs
Back lunges: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 9 reps/ 35 lbs (low on my side)
Suspension rows: 3 sets/ 10 reps
High pulls: 3 sets/ 8, 7, 6 reps each/ 25 lbs, 25 lbs, 30 lbs
Including with the routines above, I also did push-ups, ab rollers, Janda sit-ups and other active recovery movements in between.
