Some time ago, when I was feeling particularly motivated, I brought a set of resistance bands from home to keep at work.
I brought them in, put them in a cupboard and promptly forgot about them.
Since I haven’t been able to attend Body Pump lately, I decided to whip them out yesterday and see what it was all about.
I was a bit intimidated. I’ve never really used resistance bands before and I didn’t know how it worked.
I figured it out though. There were three bands of various resistance and you just hooked the one you wanted to use up to the handle.
- 3 x 15 shoulder press
- 3 x 15 bent-over rows
- 3 x 15 lateral shoulder raises
- 3 x 15 bicep curls
- 3 x 15 tricep dips
- 50 crunches
- 30 desk push-ups
It was nothing compared to a Body Pump class, but my upper body is sore today so I consider it a major success!
In other workout news, my leg is hurting more than ever now that I’ve actually been to a doctor. Go figure.
I tried to run last night but had to resort to the elliptical. I’m hoping for better luck tonight, and then I’ll do the elliptical again tomorrow to prepare for my 18-miler on Saturday!
I reallyneed to keep up with my mileage if at all possible, I want to run this marathon!
Q: Do you ever workout at work? I know this girl does. I have a spare pair running shoes in my desk and always think I’m going to go walk at work, but my office is in a semi-scary part of town and I always decide against it.
