Weekly Workouts 8/27 – 9/2

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! I was busy unpacking the apartment and had to work Saturday and Monday. Last week was our last workout in the Hudson Yards gym, and now we have THE best apartment gym! We are both so excited to workout in our new gym. There are three squat racks instead of one so now Jon and I can have our own racks. It got really tough to share the rack when he was trying to bench, and I was squatting. There’s also a floor of just accessory machines. I’ll post a tour soon. The gym also has yoga classes that I’m excited to try. After busy season is over I can go to the yoga class during the week. I enjoyed going to class after work back in Michigan so I’m looking forward to that again. Here we are on our last workout!

Move of the week: Split Squat

This move is tough! It’s such a good leg exercise that mainly targets your butt, but also your hamstrings and quads. I would start with no weight if you aren’t used to this movement and then work your way up. This is similar to a walking lunge minus the walking. You stand in one spot with your legs staggered, and then pulse up and down. I usually do 8 on each leg and then switch, but your legs will be burning before that last rep for sure!
