My workout to burn out

This week will be quite the adventure. My husband just left on a trip with my boys. They get to spend 5 days away  in the mountains at a cabin. As for me I get to go to girls camp tomorrow till Saturday. I will be sleeping in a tent and hanging out with over 100 teenage girls! Wish me luck! Haha. In the twelve years that my husband and I have been married we have never taken separate vacations away from each other. It was kinda hard to watch him drive off with the boys and not get to go with them. It will be even harder when I go to camp tomorrow because I will have no reception and won't get to talk to them till Saturday.  Despite missing my family I know camp will be a blast. It always is. I love getting to know these girls better and hanging out and making great friends with the other leaders. 
  Well since I will not get to workout at the gym all week I had get in a killer full body workout that would hopefully leave me sore for at least a day or so. I have no intention of eating healthy and or sneaking in a workout while I am in the mountains. I am actually looking forward to my time off from the gym and having a little junk food because I do believe in balance.  I could  use the break and I  know that my body will benefit from a longer recovery time too.

 Here is my workout from today
Back squats-  5x5 and two drop sets to failure
Leg extention -  3x12  after 6 reps switch to 3 sec paused reps on each set
Pull Ups 3 sets to failure
Cable row-   3x12 after 6 reps swtich to 3 second paused reps on each set
Stiff leg deadlift -  5x5  and two drop sets to failure
Lying leg curl-  3x12  after 6 fast reps switch to 3 sec paused reps on each set
Bench press- 5x5
Plyo clap push-up 1x10, 1x8 , Standard push-up  1x15, 1x10
Standing biceps cable curl-3x12 fast and paused reps
Cable rope Tricep extension-3x12 fast and paused reps
Smith machine shoulder press-5x5
Hanging leg raises 3x15

Also totally random but here's a few of my favorite workout songs right now. Keeps me driven at the gym. Don't know what I would do without music!

"Titanium"-David Guetta feat. Sia
"The fighter"- Gym Class Heroes
"Burn it Down"-Linkin Park
"The Kids Aren't Alright-  The Offspring
"Unbroken"-Demi Lavato
"New Divide"- Linkin Park

                              Yup still standing but maybe not tomorrow! Haha 

Hopefully everyone will have a great week. I will miss not having access to to the internet or use of my phone till Saturday!!
