Fun Facts Friday - Bucket List

Gym Day
Typically Fridays are my rest days. But, I had a very unscheduled rest day on Monday, so today was another gym day. I guess since I'm not running, I can rethink my weight splits again for now. Of course, this leads to lots of overthinking, rethinking, thinking thinking thinking.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do today. There is no spin on Friday unfortunately. I thought maybe I could tough out the elliptical with a magazine for about 30 minutes then do kettlebells for about 15 minutes.

What I ended up doing was sort of a combo plus back. I was going to do back with biceps and triceps tomorrow, but this gave me a chance to focus specifically on back. That's a good thing of course. I can work the back without being tired from the biceps.

So, I did 20 minutes easy on the elliptical to warm up before doing supersets for back. I went with 2x8 unless noted:

SS#1
Wide-grip assisted chinups
Pullovers (increased weight)

SS#2
Barbell rows
Incline rear flyes

Rather than doing a standard ab workout after, I went for the kettlebells, light dumbells, and bodyweight. I did this tabata style (20 sec on, 10 sec rest twice through = 1 set at 4 minutes)

Kettlebell swings
Squat thrust with pushups
Kettlebell figure 8's
Front jabs with dumbbells

Fun Facts Friday - Bucket Lists
I had a friend send out an email, one of those survey types of things you're supposed to complete and send back around. It was about bucket lists.

Honestly, before the movie came out, I had never heard of a bucket list. I had no clue what that even meant. So, quite obviously I had never put one together. Actually, I still haven't. But, after getting the email, I thought it might be kind of fun to share what would be on my bucket list.

Plus, maybe it will motivate me to see it as something more tangible, something to actually shoot for rather than dream about.
  1. Visit Italy - would love to see where my great-grandfather grew up
  2. Earn my personal trainer certification
  3. Visit California wine country
  4. Finish and publish a book I started about my friend who was killed
  5. Write a cookbook
  6. Drive a race car
Ok, that's my list. Now it's your turn. What's on your bucket list?
