Weekly Workouts

Goooood Morning!!!!  I had an AWESOME past week of workouts and I can’t wait to share them with you!!

I shook up my swim routine and started some more structured workouts rather than my normal timed swim/pull/kick workout and it felt awesome.  I worked on sprints on Thursday and holy moly did it get my heart rate up.

Saturday I pumped some iron with my girlfriend Erin and did a fantastic leg workout.  Quick note: The numbers in parenthesis are total weight I used for each exercise and set.

I also wanted to mention rest days.

In my opinion, these are just as important as your workout days!!  I schedule at least one rest day a week for my muscles to recover, repair, and build.  I LOVE working out but I recognize that my body needs rest when I am consistently working out so that it doesn’t become run down and sick.  I have also noticed significantly better results by incorporating rest days into my weekly routine.  I attribute this to allowing the muscles heal and decreasing the overall inflammation in the body.  Sometimes on my rest days I will do some yoga or stretching but other times I do absolutely no scheduled exercise and I allow my body to just purely rest.
