50 Shades Workout and 50 Shades Book Vs Movie

So. Last week I went to see 50 Shades of Grey...

Rachel and I had both read the 50 Shades of Grey series and wanted to see the movie. As an avid reader I love to see how movies are brought to the big screen- what changes are made and how close they come. Well, I was intrigued by 50 Shades in theatres- so we went.

I have to say it was an extremely awkward movie to watch in theatre. I would say that if you are at all uncomfortable watching any sort of intimate scene in the movie theatre- don't see this movie. About half of the movie was scenes that were intimate in some sort of way which gets sort of awkward when the person sitting next to you (that you don't know) makes comments consistently throughout the movie. (Thanks to the girl and her boyfriend who sat right next to me- despite the empty seats all over the theatre...)

However, the movie and book are very close. They didn't change a lot and Christian Grey was exactly as I pictured him in the book. They did a great job of casting him (and Ana as well) but some of the other characters (mainly Christian's family) were not how I pictured them...

So over the weekend I decided to up my workout plan to complete 50 of each exercise so I thought I would tie that into todays post!

50 Shades of Sweaty Workout
30 mins cardio to warm up (I did elliptical)
50 seatbelts (25 each arm)
50 abdominal twists
50 back lunges with medicine ball (twisting each time)
50 rows
50 pectoral flys
50 seated leg presses
50 leg lifts
50 bicep curls 
50 lateral raises
50 step ups onto bench (each leg)
50 relives (toe rises)
50 crunches 

Have you seen or read 50 Shades of Grey? What did you do for a workout this weekend?
