Day 18: Week 9- Now I remember...

I still cannot remember Monday, but I can remember Wednesday. Sylvie was there, Marc was not, due to more magazine stuff. I started Sylvie off on the rowing machine for 10 min, then onto the treadmill, starting at an incline of 7, moving up to an incline of 10, over a 10 min span. She stayed at a constant 3.5 speed. We then moved onto some face paced sets, that consisted of upper/ lower body and core. I had Sylvie complete 1 min of mountain climbers, followed directly by 1 min of push ups, followed by 4 times up and down the large set of stairs at the gym. Sylvie had a one min break, then it was onto using the stepper. Sylvie placed her left on the stepper, facing sideways, and the other foot was on the ground. She performed squats for 1 min with this foot placement. Having one foot higher than the other, makes her quads work that much more, therefore shedding those lbs and building more muscle. She then switched legs and did another straight min. Then Sylvie worked her upper body (triceps), by performing dips, with her hands on the bench. Remember to keep your back close to the bench, elbows in tight to your body, and breathe! Sylvie was then back to the stairs for another round of 4. Sylvie performed 2 rounds of each of these sets (mountain climbers + push ups + stairs AND squats + push ups + stairs). We ended with Sylvie holding in plank position, to work that entire core and tighten that tummy. She started in regular plank position, then raised her right arm and continued to hold, then her left arm, right leg, and finally her left leg.

Great job today Sylvie, get it!
