{a.m. workouts work best}

For me that is. Of course I would rather go in the afternoon, but that just isn’t going to happen for this momma! I normally have been waking up around 4:45am  (well, that is what time my alarm goes off…so….yeah…) to get into the kettlebell class that starts at 5:30am. To get a full lifting session in I need to get up by 4:30am and will be cutting it close to get home. One thing that is nice about getting up and getting it done is just that. It’s done. No thinking through the day about when I will or if I will be able to get that workout in. Get up. Get it done. Get home. Have a GREAT day.

This morning I did tri-sets for Arms & Shoulders. If you didn’t already know, tri-sets are three exercises or movements performed back to back with little to no rest in between. I normally do three or four different tri-sets in each workout. I will do 8-12 reps, and 4-5 sets for each movement in each tri-set. I take about a 60-90 second break in between tri-sets.
