I've been going to Zumba on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. so I have plenty of time to do strength training before class. Looked online for routines and liked this beginner one:
Warm Up -- 3 Minutes
(Did a hodgepodge of jumping jacks, speed skaters, trunk twists etc.)
Around The World, 20 Reps, Each Direction
Figure 8's, 14 Reps, Each Direction
Two-Handed Kettlebell Swing, 20 Reps
Cleans, 14 Reps, Each Side
Halos, 10 Each Direction
Straight Leg Dead Lifts, 20 Reps
Squat Curls, 14 Reps
Bent Over Rows, 14, Each Side
It was supposed to be a 30 minute workout but it took me about 17 minutes. I also added a few snatches and presses...
Zumba, on Thursday, is kind of a "bad" move (pun intended) because it does feel like a party that should mark the culmination of the work week.
Woke up hard this morning and could barely manage to stand. Had a dream that I was in a crowded store with someone else but couldn't identify the person. As we waited to jump into the flow of traffic, I noticed a miniature Buddha with a rather large head sitting on a shelf. I wanted to purchase the Buddha statue but couldn't for some reason...
There's a song from Zumba class that won't get out of my head. It's Pitbull's Alright.
It's alright, it's okayThe refrain that's most dominant -- It's alright, it's okay...Probably blocked out the drink all day because I am not a consumer of alcohol unless I, on occasion, cook with it.
We gon' party all night and drink all day...
From Dream Moods Dictionary:
To see Buddha in your dream symbolizes wisdom, insight, compassion, and inner spirituality. You need to find calmness and peace within your own Self.
