Upper body Workout

    I went to bed last night at 8:30. Yup I’m officially ready for the early bird special! It was was probably best for me to get that extra rest because I was back to babysitting this morning. 5AM came all too quickly- but I was ready! Once Aydan was safely on the school bus I hit the gym for an upper body blowout:
 15 minutes warm up on the Elliptical
Super Set 1
Assisted pull ups (40 lbs assist) 3x12
Assisted tricp dips (2 sets with 70 lbs, 1 set with 55 lbs assist)
Super Set 2
DB one arm row with tricep kickback 3x 12 each side
Push ups 3x10
Super Set 3
Military press 3x12 30lbs
Upright row 3x12 30 lbs
Super set 4
30 second Chaturanga 30 second side plank (repeated twice)
20 minute cool down on treadmill

I rushed home from the gym to my protein shake- 1 scoop EAS chocolate whey protein, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1/2 cup 1% milk.. For some reason I really like the taste of different types of milk together. Normally when we have milk it’s whole- and it adds lots of creaminess to the shake.. Of course it doesn’t last all that long to actually savor it- but hey I ate breakfast at 5am and I was starved!
