The more the merrier!! I was inspired to write this post after my AWESOME workout with Lucas and Honore yesterday at our new location on Bank Street. Here’s what we did…
WARMUP: 3 minutes of battling rope drills…insane workout!! And it doesn’t take long! My biceps are still burning haha
3 sets of each exercise
7-10 reps (increasing strength/size)
1-2 minute rest between sets
Incline Dumbbell Chest Press
Flat Dumbbell Chest Press
Incline Dumbbell fly/halfway Around the World combo (really burns the chest!)
Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Bent Over Lateral Raise
Dumbbell Skull Crushers (neutral grip/palms facing each other)
Tricep extension (straight bar-palms down)
Supinated (palm up) single arm cable tricep extension (burns!!)
The three of us did this together (took turns for each set) and had a blast! I felt like I worked so much harder and really pushed myself as I had them watching me!! I don’t know about those guys but I am sooo sore today!! OUCH!!!
So if you are having a tough time getting to the gym, schedule a workout with a friend! This will make sure you don’t miss a workout. And what’s better than having someone there to encourage you to finish those last few reps?!
If you don’t have any friends who like to workout, hire a personal trainer! This is a great option in order to guarantee you get to the gym and you will get results 80% faster than working out on your own! Don’t believe me?? Ask my clients! http://www.getfitwithles.com/#!testimonials
Not only will having a workout partner ensure you don’t miss a workout or motivate you to work harder in the gym but it is so much fun!! I highly recommend it!
(Shout out to my workout partner from Rideau Goodlife…miss you Courtney!!)
Next time you want to meet up with a friend for coffee, lunch, a movie (or heaven forbid, a pint!) how about you coordinate to meet at the gym instead??? Or maybe schedule a run date?? Just an idea 😉 You will thank each other afterwards!
