Workout inspiration 11.05.2016

How fantastic is the weather suddenly? I’m currently sitting outside, ready to type up my workout, and it’s so amazing. A bit of sunshine really does wonders for my mood and wellbeing!

For this workout I had planned to wake up early to do a bit of lifting before a gym class. I was about to try my first hatha yoga class ever – and although it would be nice to just snooze and complete my workout after class, I feel so relaxed after those yoga I can’t get pumped for a lifting session.

Well that was the plan. Until I got outside to find my bike with a flat tire. With a knee that can’t run, I had to hurry to get to the gym in time. At least that’s the warm up done 😉

But it meant I had to cut my workout short – but also that I got to walk home in fantastic sunny weather. Now, let’s stop running around and get down to the workout.

Workout Breakdown

  • Quick warmup for the shoulders
  • Bench press 3 x 12
  • Lat pull down 3 x 12
  • Chest flys 3 x 10
  • Parallel pull-ups w/ elastic, 3 x 6
  • Dumbbell shoulder press 3 x 6, drop 50% of the weight 3 x 12
  • Hammer curls, 2 x 12
  • Stair sprints as I realized I was late for yoga on the other floor
  • 1 hour hatha yoga
  • And roughly 4.5 km of walking in total

 

Sidenote: why would a gym ever place the pull up bar where the ceiling is the lowest. I practically had to do half reps because my head was hitting the ceiling. Now that’s just silly.

If you don’t know an exercise, try searching for it on Exrx.net, Bodybuilding.com, YouTube – or you know, Google is usually pretty good at finding stuff on the internet;) But if you do have a questions, feel free to leave it in the comments, and I’ll get back to you asap!

  • I’ve been following you on tumblr for aaaages, but I didn’t realise you had bloglovin until you popped up in my ‘reccommended’! I followed you for some much-needed workout motivation, as you’re so dedicated.
    Also, as a fellow scandinavian (norwegian here :P), vikings represent!

  • RAWR. Love this. I had someone on insta ask about my workouts so I might start doing some posts in a post this style.

    I have that fuel your ambition top but in a different colour 😀

  • I love reading about other people’s workouts, especially girls who weight train! Do you ever posts what weight your doing for each exercise? I like to keep track of how much stronger I’m getting.

    • Well I do love weight training! As I’m currently recovering from a long term injury, I’ve stopped tracking the weight I use. It’s demotivating to constantly see that I’m still weak. But I used to always track my progress! 🙂
