A Few Things

A few things. (I always say ‘few’ when I’m teaching a class, “c’mon guys, only a few more pushups!” when really I mean 10. Or 20.) But this time I really only mean a few.

1. Check out this hilarious video. It’s the Gangnam Style music video…without the music. I still can’t decide if that makes it incredibly hilarious, or seriously creepy. You be the judge!

2. Oh man. I saw this on The Pioneer Woman‘s blog this A.M. and got addicted…immediately. Kendra Scott jewelry. (Kysha, Katie..go look at this site. There are some serious contenders for wedding jewelry!)

3. Taught Barbell Blast tonight. Except, since I subbed it last minute, I didn’t know that it was Barbell Blast. So guess what, we did Barbell Blast without barbells. Hahaha. I had one lady leave 5 minutes in. She totally had a look on her face that was all “awwww hellls no”

 

Not a super glamorous shot, but the next class was about to start so I had to be quick. And the next class was PARKOUR. Umm, what? The YMCA offers jump-off-the-roof classes? Now that I think about it, I should have stayed to watch. Drats. Well, that’s what YouTube is for, I guess.

Favorite moves from tonight’s class:

-Decline bridge chest press. It’s kinda like this picture:

Except, I had the class rest their heels on their steps. I also had them alternate between the chest press and flys 2 times- without coming out of the bridge pose. Then had them go immediately into weighted bridge dips and single leg dips. Bwahaha

Other favey was the Arnold Press combined with tricep extensions (done 2 times through) To be extra challenging, I had them do sets of medicine ball pushups immediately after. BwahahaΒ².

I ran into one of the women in my class in the locker room afterwards and she told me she liked my class because I went so slow. Not sure if that was a compliment, but I guess I’ll take it? I told her it was to ‘feel the burn’. Quick thinking.

See, that was only a few things. I kept my word. πŸ™‚

    • I used to teach muscle, total body sculpt, ab attack, cutz, kickboxing and cardio ball in the states, but I have been volunteering at the Eau Claire Y teaching outdoor bootcamp and muscle classes… for now. It’s so much fun and a great workout!
