pyramid schemes

I slept hard... like a brick last night. I don't even remember J coming home from work at night...usually I wake up to talk...last night I was dead to the world... It actually took a bit to mentally figure out what my alarm *was* this morning...but thankfully I crawled from the fluffy duvet and quickly figured it out :)
Came in for a sculpt class - it was a pyramid workout. I like them. Progressive repetitions of reps of the following, adding one item every round through:
-10 pushups
-10 forward lunges (each leg)
-10 squat woodchoppers (each side)
-18 bicep curls
-20 squats (some rounds had extra pulses at the end...killer)
-20 tricep extensions
-something that I can't for the life of me remember (?!seriously I got nothing?!)
-18 shoulder presses
-18 upright rows
-20 plank oblique crunches each side.
Then we finished it off with some planks and bicycle crunches and a good stretch. Solid. I find I can do more with more weight and focus on my form with this kind of workout, since there's not a zillion of something all at once. In the end I I ended up doing 100 pushups today! I sweated...I know it was tough. I have a feeling those woodchoppers are gonna make me stiff tomorrow...

Last night I had time to make good veg chili with cornbread for supper and some muffins and mexican chicken bean soup for my lunches for the rest of the week, so I'm feeling back on track.
Today is a bit of a rest day compared to the last few. Just gonna take it easy and see where it takes me.
I'm sure there's lots just waiting :)

Have a great day!!

Wow, sounds like a killer workout! I'm impressed you even liked it, I'd be doing some serious whining. I can't imagine how many total reps that is if you add 'em all up.

Ouch!

And mmm, chili with cornbread...

I was all set to type up a witty comment about lunges and stiff muscles. But then you mentioned cornbread. I can think of nothing else now. Must...have...cornbread.
