This morning's workout was B&G. I did the regular, original version (no premix, in other words). Usually I want to cry through that workout, but with all the talk from folks that enjoy working legs, I decided to be tough and really umph it through the workout today. I used 5s (like she does) but a 30 pound bar (hers is 35). I determined to use good form, lunge deep, and not cheat. For the most part I did well. I had to pause a couple times to get the heart rate down when the cardio factor took over. And on the 2nd set of one-legged lunges, I used no weight because I really wanted to sink into the reps without cheating and knew that even the 5 pounds would prevent me really going deep.
The place I'm really feeling it this afternoon . . . hip flexors! They really need to increase in strength and flexibility. They are often my limiting factor. I have been working hard to improve their strength and range of motion, and I've come a long ways. But they are still tight and weak. I'm hoping to keep improving.
Overall, celebrating a great workout.
