Oh, get your mind out of the gutter you erth-lings! I mean Body Pump class, of course! That’s how I started out my morning yesterday. I love this class. It’s fun because it’s one class my hubby will actually take with me. So just like I mentioned in my previous article, if the gym intimidates you, this is actually a great class to take. It works every body part with a bar and plates, using moves you can use in your own personal workout at the gym. The most intimidating part of the class is the set-up. So if you ever find yourself wanting to take the class, here’s Body Pump set-up 101.
You need 3 things…a bench with 2 risers on each side, a mat and weights. The weights consist of a bar, a few different sized plates, and clips for the end to keep the weights from falling off. I usually start with 5 lb. plates on the bar, then have an extra set of 5’s and 2.5’s when I need to add weight depending on the exercise.
After the set-up, you just follow along and pump it up! Try it, you may like it!
This time after my workout I ate a little smarter than the previous day (no McDonalds). My hubby found these veggie (vegan) patties at Costco, and we’ve been hooked ever since:
I love that you can taste the sunflower seeds in it. I made myself 2 patties for lunch (plain, no bread), but I really filled up after just one. It’s a good, quick, easy meal.
What can I say? I love my Costco purchases!
Now I need to go cancel out yesterday’s workout by finding some ice cream to eat on National Ice Cream Day! This workout/eating thing is like going up a down escalator!
