TRX class

Hola, people of the world.

I just thought I’d write a quickie on my TRX class last night. It’s going to be pretty basic, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

We did ย 5 minute warm up (well, I told them it was a warm up..we really did a lot of side lunges while holding the ropes, and some arm stretching)

We did the next 10 moves for 1 minute each with a 45-60 second recovery (3 sets of this before moving to the next exercise):

  1. Hip press
  2. Suspended Lunge (3x on each leg)
  3. Chest press
  4. Single Arm Row (3x each arm)
  5. Atomic pushup
  6. Back row
  7. Ab rollout
  8. Suspended knee tucks
  9. Tricep Extensions
  10. Bicep Curls

Sounds simple with only 10 moves, but you’re doing them for a significant amount of time. And yes, you’ll be shaking by the end of it.

I managed to get to the gym way early before teaching this class, so I squeezed in a 20 minutes spin session. It was a great way to break a sweat before teaching (Even though I still felt pretty crappy)

Oh, and then when my class thought they were done, I had them get down on all four on their mats and do a few sets of the Dirty Dog (I call them fire hydrants- and contrary to the video I linked, I had the class hold the move at the top of their range of motion for a niiiiiiice loooooong tiiiiiiime). Bwahaha. I saw a few waddling out of the studio after that.

Very sore. Very awesome.

I started this book today:

Already pretty far into that sucker, it’s an easy and fun read.

A few things before I go:

1. I won a Kombucha Home Brewing Kit from Lauren over at Oatmeal after Spinning! Woooo hoooo! Check out her blog, she has lots of cool things going on over there ๐Ÿ™‚

2. I got my Bulu Box the other day. Since I have been sick, I really haven’t gotten myself to try any of the goodies, but as soon as I do, I’ll make sure to post! (One of them is Birthday Cake Whey Protein…cannot wait to try that!)

3. Since we’re all sick in this house, I made a run to the store for chicken noodle soup and the fixing for grilled cheese. I think things will start looking up pretty soon.

Talk to ya later!
