My Birthday Workout

November 10th was my birthday! I had a great week but I was so busy that I am just posting about it now.

Some people take off working out on their birthday but I feel better when I workout and working out means my body needs more food. Yay food!

I’m 35 and enjoyed a fantastic day with my family. It was a homeschool day but I took a break for my workout and we ended our day at the Chinese Buffet. Yum!

Today’s workout focused on back, biceps, and shoulders.

Here it is!

I started with a warm up jog on the treadmill.

Then I followed up with 30 resistance band assisted pull ups (taking breaks when needed).

followed by:

30 resistance band assisted chin ups (taking breaks when needed).

I then did dumbbell deadlifts (3 sets of 15).

Once I had largest muscles worked and warmed up I did an upper body circuit. I didn’t do too much chest/triceps since I have already hit them this week.

Here is my circuit:

I did 10 reps of each exercise and then took a break before repeating completing 3 rounds total.

  • Circle dumbbell raise/ squatting circle dumbbell raise
  • Alternating dumbbell press punches and forward punches
  • Dumbbell Tricep swing into forward raises
  • Circle dumbbell raises into press
  • Alternating tricep full extend backs
  • Dumbell curls (hammer into regular)
  • Wide bicep curls
  • Hammer curl to shoulder press
  • Skull crushers into chest press
  • 3 type curles (narrow, reg, wide)
  • Left side: lawn mower into delt raises
  • Right side: lawn mower into delt raises
  • Left side: bent over delt raise
  • Right side: bent over delt raise
  • Alternating lawnmower into both arms lawn mower (counts as 1 rep)
  • Standing side lateral raises
  • Plank alternating lawn mowers
  • Supermans
  • Upright rows
  • 30 second sprint on treadmill

So that was my workout. I usually don’t do such a long circuit but I found a bunch of fun new lifts online and wanted to put them in with some old school exercises as well.

Hope you all had a fantastic day. I can’t believe this weather… a high of 62. I can’t remember the last time it was 60s on my birthday. Usually it’s snowing.

Happy November 10th!
