Today's Workout

I think I'll call this the Take That Mother Nature workout. Yep, it's that time of month. Feeling tired, crampy, and so not in the mood for doing much. However, I'm not going to let it get me down. I've been doing too good to let a little thing like Auntie Flow get in my way. So here's the plan for today, I've even linked to some YouTube videos for you so you know what to do:

Standing barbell (or dumbbell) military press; 4 sets of 10
Prone cobra; 3 sets of 10

Just a note, some of the videos aren't the exact exercise. I chose some to represent the exercise as close as I could.

I'm doing The Biggest Loser Cardio Max workout for cardio today.

Pull ups (okay I'm going to attempt these, I've not been able to yet); 3 sets to failure
Dumbbell laterals (side raises); 3 sets of 10
Band should press; 2 sets of 10
Barbell(or dumbbell) curls; 3 sets of 8
Preacher curls on ball; 2 sets of 10 and 1 set to failure

Also for the challenges I'm currently doing there is 25 crunches and still attempting to do at least one chin up. So that's it for today. Easy, right? My first race in many years is coming in 32 days. I'm going to be in good shape by then, I hope. I also have a 15 year high school reunion coming in 6-7 weeks. I want to look great for that and I will as long as I keep going strong.
