New Beginnings and WOD

Hello Fitties,

     today I started week one of the NYC shape up Fitness instructor program. I'm pretty psyched that I will be able to torture people legally (lol, just joking). I'm really excited about this class because it will teach me how to make exercise routines for a group of people with different athletic abilities plus it will teach me how to effectively instruct a class. My program is during my regular exercise time, so I now have to get my run and weight training done in the morning before work. Surprisingly, I find that I am able to do more when exercising at the crack of dawn. Is it that I'm excited to see an empty gym or that I have more energy in the morning? Who knows? All I know is that I like how I'm feeling so no complaints aqui.
    Below is my WOD:
3 mile tempo run (fasted cardio)
bicep curls (3x10 @ 40 lbs)
overhead press (3x10 @40lbs)
rows (3x10 @ 40lbs)
6x10 pushups
overhead tricep extensions (3x10 @ 30lbs)
lying fly (3x10 @15lbs)
close grip chest press (3x10 @ 30lbs)
straight arm extensions (3x10@8lbs)
NTC Hollywood Trainer abs

Totally left the gym feeling like this :).


 Well that's all for the day fitties.
Shout out to all the bloggers linking up on Workout Wednesday #WOWlinkup. Keep up the great work, your posts are inspiring and keep me motivated.
Until next time.
XoXo,
YumYum

    1. Hi Sheila, I'm taking the group instructor program. I will only be certified to teach classes through the nyc parks department. However, I'm taking AFAA personal training courses concurrently so when I'm done with the nyc shape up program I will have experience and hopefully be able to gain and keep clients

    1. Wow, thanks for tweeting my podt. I don't have a twitter account at the moment. I thought I took a huge step in the social media world by having an ig account.
