Today’s yoga practice was all about intention. What I felt this meant to me was my intention to pass my HM school and accomplish my plans for the year. What’s your intention? Maybe this video will spark something new for you.
“It is intent which establishes one’s consequential outcomes.”
During the Pandemic of COVID-19. It is important to stay calm and try not to be pulled into this unfortunate panic. The world is slowly going into a lock-down phase that can potentially preserve our health. One of the most basic and most important break in the chain of COVID-19 is simply washing your hands. The CDC stated in an article that, “Hand washing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Learn when and how you should wash your hands to stay healthy.” Listed below are some educational links on how to wash your hands properly and effectively. There are also educational articles about the importance of it.
I’m finally able to return to the gym after being sick for about two weeks. Finally got settled into my school and checked out the gym with one of the chicks in my class today. It helps that she is totally into the gym and knows almost every single work out. Here was one of the workouts that we did today:
1/2 mile run on the treadmill or 30 min of alternate cardio.
American kettlebell swings x25
Alternating jump lunges x20
Alternating dumbbell snatch x15
Dumbbell press right x5
Dumbbell press left x5
Chest to bar pull-ups x5
Set the timer for 20 minutes and see how many sets you can get through!
For the kettlebells, and dumbbells use whatever weight you feel comfortable with. This is about staying positive and motivated through your workout. Listen to your body and see how the weights affect you and your workout. Sweat a little, enjoy the pain a little and breathe. This is about you achieving your goals. Make sure to bring water and rest when you need to!

Every week I work out with my trainer at least once. I try for two times a week but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. I still put all my effort into it though! Afterwards, I feel it is always worth it. Below is one of the “full body” workouts we did together:
Row Warmup – 3 min on 8 intensity
These next ones are in groups of three and you do them twice to get the heart pumpin’.
Walking Lunges – 20 at 20lbs
Squats – 20 at 20 lbs
Jump Squats – 20
Barbell Curls – 15 at 20lbs
Barbell Press – 15 at 20lbs
Jumping Jacks – 20
Plank – 30 seconds
Curl Ups – 30 seconds
Make sure to hydrate before every workout and after every workout you complete, and that you also stretch and cool down.
