Combo Moves (8/3-8/9)

This week’s 44s were all about combining upper and lower body moves – my favorite way to get max results in min time!!

Sunday 8/3  44 plies with bicep curls (10 pound dumbbells).

After the row, stand back up to complete a rep!  Deadlifts are one of my favorite moves!!!

I only had a short amount of time to workout so I just lifted weights –  Chalean Extreme Lean Circuit 2.

Thursday 8/7  44 squat with front raise (hands together on 1 DB – 12 pounds).

And, this was another long run day – 12 miles in 90:02 + 2.4 easy miles.

Friday 8/8  44 alternate side lunge with overhead triceps extension. (8 pound DB)

Because I wanted to do 44 lunges to each side, I ended up doing 88 tricep moves!!  My triceps are still sore today!!!  Plus, keeping my arms overhead the entire time was a big challenge.

I only did Chalean Extreme Lean Circuit 3 – it was a struggle for some reason!!!

Saturday 8/9  44 hammer curls with opposite knee lift (12 pound DBs)

I counted a right curl and left curl as 1 rep.  This was a great move for really working my core – love balance challenges.

Overall this was a good week of workouts.  I didn’t travel to Illinois (obviously!!!) to run the ultra but still got in some good runs and strength workouts.

Happy Saturday (better late than never!!)!!!
