4 sets of incline press
2 sets of flat bench
about an hour of walking
I'm a bit of a gym rat, I lift 5 days a week-- but I keep my workouts to about 20-25 minutes and focus on compound lifts (squats, deadlifts, presses).

What Annie Did Next
Decided to do a custom workout under my garage.
Started with push ups and pull ups off a wooden beam - 20 push ups followed by 5 pull ups, which lowered to 3 pull ups per 20 until I couldn't do any more. Didn't count the sets. Prooooooobably should have.
Then I decided to make use of my environment and do a custom weight workout for muscles that could be applied practically. Filled a couple of bags with wood and worked my shoulders, lifting them up to the side of my head for 5 sets of 10. Ouch. Then did some custom deadlifts with the wood chopping block - basically by lifting it up, holding, then lowering. Again: ouch. Then I managed to find a wooden bar. Not sure what it was doing there, but hey, there it was. So I attached the two bags previously used to either side, added a bit more wood per bag and performed 5 sets of 10 squats. OOOOOOOUCH.
This was followed by a hasty stumble upstairs and the downing of a weakly made Paleo-protein shake (doing Whole30 this month - no Whey allowed, and had short time) of two egg whites, a banana and some strawberries. This was followed quickl by a big ass meal of portobello steak mushroom burgers and a whopping bowl of sweet potato fries - using the leftover yolk as an oil.
Wow. Gotta say, right now, body is aching. Gonna feel that tommorow. But at the same time... Damn, I feel awesome.

Finally have a new workout routine after moving and losing my city. 15 minute bike ride on hills to a gated community playground, arm work and push-ups, ride back. It sounds so simple, but it's awesome and very taxing. Takes about 45 minutes. I'm not going to try categorizing it. It's my exercise. I can control the intensity easily. I'm going to do it every other day on my days off weather/family/other BS permitting.
Traveling and staying w family. Jumped on the deck did a Burpee ladder and invisible Fran w squats and push-ups
My husbands family lives in a cute beachside community w TONS of hills. We ran to a local park. Did pull-ups, lunges and push-ups ..ran back uphill to his house. Killer

Finally i did some assisted muscle ups. On a low bar with a bit of push from legs. My goal is to do one unassisted muscle up before the end of this year.
