It’s Bob Again

 

Fine. This will be all about Bob again. Of course though, the day I promise to not show you any pictures of my burnt dinner I actually didn’t burn anything last night.

Oh well.

I won’t talk about the potty training either, but I will tell you that it’s not very fun. Talk about time consuming. Oh man.

Anyhoo….

I really need to devote a page to all my trips to see my best friend Bob. All of My Trainer Bob fun in one place, don’t you think?

A tribute to Bob and BobHarper.com.

I’m going to add this video I just discovered yesterday at the top of it.

Oh yes, STUFT mama is working it out with Bob!!!!!

 

I didn’t know this video existed, but I’m in there all over the darn place. Pretty exciting stuff.

There’s a chance I may be watching this multiple times a day.

Smile

 

Let’s recap my visit shall we?

My last trip to LA was about a month ago, so I was pretty sure Bob was just as excited to see me as I was to see him. Ha.

I got to tape three workouts: a one-on-one workout with him for the Living Fit segment and then two Team Bob group workouts.

On the way to LA I ate a defrosted high protein microwave muffin (minus the oats in the recipe).

IMG_3571

That looks appetizing, yes? Even more so since it was sitting in my crotch. Ha ha.

I did the usual on my drive up there: put on my 10 year old expired make up, whitened my teeth, made some phone calls (hands free of course), etc.

I got there early before Bob was even there. That was a first. It gave me a little time to adjust my Handful bra inserts and check my hair. (Why the heck did I go for the slicked over look? Bad call.)

IMG_3572

I felt like it was only appropriate to go in the gym and ask the nice people at WIN Entertainment to take some before pictures.

IMG_3576

My outfit (in case you care).

Lululemon scoop neck tank

Lululemon Run Speed Shorts

Handful bra pads (inside my shirt of course)

Nike Free Advantage shoes

BIC Headband

my Spanx (no joke- I wore my Spanx the entire day under my workout gear)

cool Reebok CrossFit bracelet

 

I even warmed up a little for my friend.

IMG_3579

When he got there (Starbucks in hand) he said “hi honey” and I blurted out that I brought my special compression socks. He told me to put them on and I changed into those socks so darn fast.

Then he went over what the one-on-one workout was going to be.

IMG_3580

I look a little scared, yes? The workout was written on that white board. I have a love/hate relationship with that darn board.

Then we got all mic’d up and stuff.

IMG_3583

It was about then that I disclosed the fact that I was wearing Spanx (since they get a little frisky with the mic placement and all).

IMG_3586

Bob asked me why I was wearing Spanx and I told him that I have twins and my belly button sticks straight out. He seemed pretty satisfied with that response and left it at that. Ha ha.

IMG_3587

Check out his dog Karl right by my leg. He’s always there and follows Bob everywhere. So cute. Not to mention Karl is always better groomed than yours truly.

 

Bob is all about CrossFit these days so all of his workouts for BobHarper.com are that style. I love them. Intense and short.

His main pointers for me with all the workout moves were to keep my hips forward and chest up. He had to remind me of that A LOT. Just like he did when he coached me through the one arm snatch (video of that awesomeness is here).

Here’s what the workout was:

AMRAP (as many reps as possible) – 1 minute each move

Bear Squats

plyo box burpees

run in place

renegade push-ups

sit-ups

 

I went through twice.

It was pretty intense friends.

IMG_3591IMG_3592IMG_3594

 

It’s such a surreal experience having him in your face while working out. He really is an amazing trainer.

Some funny comments from him along the course of the workout:

“nice hamstrings”

“you sweat a lot like me”

“it’s just me and you”

And when he asked me to show a modified version of jumping jacks he totally made fun of my “dance jacks”. He laughed pretty hard and said “well, those are cute, but I want you to do it like this instead”.

Oops.

 

IMG_3596IMG_3598IMG_3600IMG_3602IMG_3603IMG_3604

I made it.

Smile

IMG_3607

Then it was time to clean up a bit before the next group workout.

Want a peak inside my bag?

IMG_3608

Tooth whitening trays, my make up bag, extra Handful bra pads, outfit changes, wallet, planner and yes, there is a diaper in there. You never know friends. My drive is long. Ha ha. just kidding I don’t know why I actually put it in there. I guess in case of emergencies. I never leave home without a diaper since this marathon. 

I packed an extra set of Handful bra pads. I never leave home without these either. They’re the best sports bra pads ever. Really Kristin though? I may have two left feet the majority of the time, but two right boobs? Come on. Silly silly.

IMG_3629

Luckily I had another set in my shirt already. I just transferred the sweaty ones. Ha.

I frequently bring my teeth whitening trays around with me too.

IMG_3617

Why am I showing you all this? This is not how to look cool.

Oh well.

Outfit number two.

IMG_3619

Handful bra

an old Aspire shirt

same Lululemon shorts

same Nike Free shoes and Reebok bracelet

New BIC headband

 

Before our group shoot, I shoved some veggies they had out for us

IMG_3620

and a Clif MOJO S’mores bar in my mouth.

IMG_3623

Then met my other Team Bob ladies in the gym.

IMG_3625

How cute are they?

The second workout was this:

IMG_3626

Dang, can you even read that?

The moves: overhead press, skiers, mountain climbers, weighted squats and jump ropes.

This workout was pretty nutty too. It didn’t help he had me using 20 pound weights and that at the last minute he made it 7 rounds instead of 6.

 

It was a quick turn around after that workout. One more outfit change.

IMG_3634

The only thing I changed was my shirt. I put my new Lorna Jane shirt on (which I love by the way).

IMG_3636

Um yeah. He didn’t tell us anything about the last workout except that it was a surprise. No one knew what we were going to do until the cameras started rolling.

Then he told us.

Open WOD.

7 minute AMRAP- burpees

surprise workout 1

[source]

We look excited, yes?

That was before.

This was after.

surprise workout 2

[source]

Um yeah. It was intense.

I did exactly 100 burpees. He told me on camera that he wanted triple digits out of me. The pressure was on. Plus I needed to get on his good side so he would tape that FitFluential video with me. You saw the Bob is FitFluential video, yes?

Well, 3 workouts later it was a wrap.

IMG_3638

Oh Bob.

IMG_3642

You just rock.

 

After the workouts I decided to stay in LA instead of fight traffic. Luckily I had my Mizuno shoes in the car. (I keep them there ever since this day.)

I went for a little run while I waited to meet up with my friend.

IMG_3650IMG_3651IMG_3652IMG_3654IMG_3656

Then met up with one of my best friends, Deena, for a little dinner at True Food Kitchen in Santa Monica.

IMG_3667IMG_3671

Um, yeah. She’s adorable and she wasn’t even embarrassed to be seen in public with my sweaty self.

We just happen to walk by the new Lorna Jane store too.

IMG_3664

I introduced her to the fun clothes since the store is new to the US. I pretty much want everything in that store, but I refrained. I need to save my money for our “racecation” next weekend.

Smile

Well friends….

thanks for letting my blab on about my Bob adventures. I really feel like I take you with me when I’m there.

Happy Friday!

Have a wonderful weekend. Hope you take time to have a Mezamashii Mommyhood moment and live your summer priorities.

Smile

I’m off for a little run before it gets too hot over here.

    Where do I even begin with such a funny and inspirational post!

    I am actually totally envious of all the one on one intense training. Having a fun trainer I swear can make such a difference. You had such an awesome day of training and got to follow it up with a beautiful run! Even with how hard the day must have been physically I can imagine it also felt great.

    Congrats on that video! That is fabulous.

    I am glad with he was satisfied with the spanx answer…I am pretty sure no guy would bother arguing with that one.

    I laughed my way through this post. :)

    I LOVE hearing about your Bob adventures! i’m a big fan and love seeing you right there with him. Those workouts sound SO intense, but short and sweet is the way to go. Way to get facetime allll over that promo video! Makes me want to join the site lol. Til next time!

  7. 7

    three main thoughts came from this post…
    1) she is one lucky gal to spend so much time with bob!
    2) why in the world is she wearing spanx? she is like the last woman on the planet that needs spanx. twins or not, she looks great.
    3) she is unbelievable. just going on a little run after those crazy intense workouts… no big deal.

      If I didn’t wear Spanx my belly button would pretty much be touching the video camera. Ha ha. I hide it well my friend and Spanx are miraculous.

  8. 8

    I can’t believe you had the energy to go for a run after three Bob workouts! I’m tired just reading about it – mind you I’m also 37 1/2 weeks pregnant now so I’m tired pretty much all the time :)

  9. 9

    Hips forward, chest up is what my trainer is constantly telling me too. *sigh*

    I love the 7 mins of burpees “surprise.” I’d die if that was my 3rd workout of the day. bu no, you did 100 and then went for a run. My hero.

    Also, I need that bra. How does the sizing run? My boobs are solid XS, but I have some pecs to cover! ;)

    Ameena says:

    First off, you look amazing in every single photo!

    Secondly, True Food Kitchen is one of my favorite places. When I was there a couple of weeks ago I went across to Lorna Jane and bought a pair of great pants. Love them!

  26. 26

    I’m always so jelly of your Bob posts. I wish he would call me honey. HAHAH. I love reading your posts, they always crack me up and I love sharing them with my mom. But I can honestly say if I had to do three workouts with Bob, I would be snoozing on the floor during the third. His DVDs just kill me.

    Lisa says:

    Sounds like a HARD trio of workouts!!
    Glad you and Bob had a good time together;)
    This one looks like so much fun though!

  28. 28

    I actually just watched the video on his site the other day and was looking for you…did I miss you?
    I freaking love your Bob posts. I always read them to my husband- I think he secretly loves him as much as I do!
