I did however come into the day wanting to make a slight change with the mission. I decided that it was time to switch up the weight lifting portion of my workout routine so my body wouldn't get complacent. So, I went back to my friend, the personal trainer, to see what he recommended. I had explained to him how I have been doing his cardio based workout routine for roughly the last 5 weeks and I thought it was time for a change to make the workout fresh and exciting. He told me that he had the perfect solution for me. I am still executing my weight lifting and strength training workouts with a cardio base, however this time around I will be using more of the stability ball as well as alternating reps between my left side and right side of my body. Adding these elements to my routine will help get my core more involved and it will help to add more reps into the mix as well.
So with this new workout plan put it place, I headed straight for the gym. Adding the stability and alternating aspects to my workout, made my stay in the gym a little longer because I had to get used to keeping my balance on the ball and alternating sides added more reps. I can honestly tell you all that tonight's workout had me sweating more then I have ever sweat before during a workout. I can definitely tell that I hit my core hard today as well because my entire middle section is tight. I think I will be feeling sore come tomorrow morning.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
