I decided to go to Gold’s because I was just not in the mood for a run outside. I ran on Thanksgiving and just wasn’t into running solo. I haven’t been to Gold’s since probably late spring – why workout inside when the weather is beautiful and you can get outside?? Gold’s Gym in Ashburn is closing end of December to make way for the Super Gold’s that is opening in Ashburn. The front desk person said that they are opening the new Gold’s in stages and it will be open when the other one closes for work out weight equipment and cardio machines. The classes area and swimming pool will follow early 2011. Exciting happenings in Ashburn!! I get a free membership to Gold’s via my company and it has come in handy during the winter and crappy weather days.
I ran for 15mins to warm-up then headed to the weight room. I did some back squats 55lb and OH squats 55lb. Walking lunges 25db, hang clean press 25lb, 50 push-ups, 50 box jumps, 30 pull ups with what I think is a KIP. Now I say that because I can’t do a kip without a bench to help me get up on the bar and to lean on. I know it gets my HR up, so it works for me for now. I stayed at the gym about 1:15mins.
BOSU push ups
14lb ball twists
full back extensions
6in leg lifts
14lb Med Ball swing squats
An observation from my gym time today. I have never been one to get a lot of attention from guys – in general, specifically at the gym. I have gone to Gold’s for 2 or so years now and rarely, if ever does a guy talk to me. Since I have lost more weight and continued on being fit, it has been happening more and more. Today, 4 different guys stopped me to talk about my workout or tell me they were impressed or asked me what type of workout I was doing. Maybe I am reading into it, but guys in general are usually pretty easy to read and if I was the old Stephanie – I don’t think they would have stopped to talk to me. Not a criticism or a brag, just an observation of how living this life changes a lot of things around you.
