Dance Party Recap
Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a groovy Saturday :).
After taking a much needed rest from exercise yesterday, I was ready to go this morning. I completed a total body weights workout and was inspired by Holly’s post today to switch things up a bit so I incorporated some plyometrics! I completed 3 sets of the following, and did anywhere from 10-15 reps depending on the amount of weight I used.
Total Body Weights Workout
*Chest press on stability ball
*Push-ups with feet on stability ball
*Bicep “21” curls – this is where you go halfway up for 7, from the shoulder and halfway down for 7, and then 7 full curls
*Hip thrusts on stability ball
*Dumbbell hip thrusts on stability ball (see this video for an idea of what hip thrusts look like)
*Weighted side bends
It felt awesome to do some plyos..they really get your heart rate up and you can definitely feel the burn!
Outdoor Dance Party
Last night was the outdoor dance party in Cambridge. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!! Mass Ave in Central Square was completely shut down, there was a DJ playing awesome music, so many people were there- it was insane, and it was slightly misting-which almost made it better because it cooled you off from all the dancing. Before we went dancing, my roommates and I went to our friends’ apartment for some food and Margaritas :). Then we headed over and danced the night away for two hours straight! Let me just tell you- I was worn out. I slept so good last night. Here are some pics from the evening!
I have a problem controlling myself around chips and guac or salsa. I seriously think I ate a majority of those chips. Haha, oh well, I think the amount of dancing I did definitely made up for it ;).
And then, after we got that out of our systems, we walked over to the dance party :).
Seriously, why do I always find men not wearing shirts in this city???
Going out to a bar/club can be a lot of fun…but honestly, this was so much better! I haven’t danced for that amount of time in a while and it was awesome. I’m so glad I got to experience this annual event :). I secretly kind of hoped that the skies would open up and it would pour at the end so we could go out with a bang- Step Up 2 style..haha yea right.
Would you enjoy a night of dancing in the streets??
