Workout of the Week

Rob is just getting over a cold. I've been fighting it off the last few days and while it hasn't come to anything yet (*touch wood*), I felt worn out after doing my warm-up yesterday, so decided to avoid the super sets and giant sets I've been doing lately in favour of straight sets.

Not-feeling-well Workout
rest 1-2 minutes between all sets
Chest press, 2 sets of 15 reps
Lat pulldown, 2 sets of 15 reps
Shoulder press, 2 sets of 15 reps
Stationery lunges, 2 sets of 15 reps (per leg)
Step-ups, 2 sets of 15 reps (per leg)
Crunches, 2 sets of 15 reps
Alternate leg/arm raise, 2 sets of 15 reps.

I can feel my glutes today, so I know that my workout was effective, even if it was short and sweet.

Do you workout if you are sick or feel like you are coming down with something?

I hope that you are able to avoid getting sick. I'm sick right now both my husband and daughter were sick and I feel awful! I decided to skip the gym and not take my germs there. I hope to be back at the gym in a day or two.

I always work out unless I have a fever, or am nauseous.
