The past two days here have been AWESOME. I ran outside yesterday and it was like sunshine filled medicine to my soul...I'll get to that in a moment.
First: My circuit workout from yesterday.
It went a little something like this and I was loving it.
Circuit #1 (Repeat this twice through)
Weighted Step Up Push Ups - 10 R & 10 L (I did it with 15 LB DB's and I felt it!)
Squats with an upright row - 15 reps
2 minute sprint on treadmill (really pushing it as FAST as you can go!)
Circuit #2 (Repeat this three times through)
Assisted pull ups - 15 reps
Alternating Reverse Lunge with a bicep curl @ top - 12 w/curl 12 reverse lunges w/out curl
Jumping wide to narrow squats w/25 lb plate - 10 reps (with these you want to hold a 25 lb plate in front of you jump to a wide squat and squat down, immediately jump to a narrow squat and squat down. that counts as 1 rep.)
2 minute sprint on treadmill (Keep trying to burn out those legs by pushing that speed!!)
Circuit #3 (Repeat this three times through)
Push ups - 15 reps
Wheel lunges - 1 set of 10 right/ 1 set of 10 left
Plank Hold - 1 minute
2 minute sprint (Bless those poor little leg's hearts...they should be dying by now...but keep pushing it!)
This whole workout should take you about an hour and your calorie burn should be about 700-800 + if you are really pushing it! It is an AWESOME full body workout that will work your core the entire time you're working as well! I was a schweaty mess afterwords...can I just say that there was a girl there running with her hair down? Wha?!? How do people do that?
Hair in my face while working out = Pure annoyance.
I came home from my morning workout and enjoyed some lunch and had every intention of showering, and all that jazz...however the sunlight beaming through my window enticed me otherwise. I couldn't NOT go outside. So I went on a four mile hill run that absolutely made my day! I LOVE hill workouts in a weird way. I think I was smile running the whole time, while mouthing the words to my newest playlist...which reminds me...if you haven't entered to win the March Madness Mix Giveaway just go do it already!
I hated that this post was photo-less, so I threw a fave of mine in for good measure. This pic has nothing to do with anything...except it reminds me that summer is coming, and I love sunshine. :) Oh...and the girl to the left is my BEAUTIFUL BFF Benita who does my circuit workouts with me. Lola the chica next to her is another gorgeous BFF of mine who is a BOMB marathon runner. I heart them both. Well lookie there, I tied the photo in after all...talent people. Talent.
Do you workout with your hair down? If you do I am extremely amazed by you. I can't do it. Not even an option. Do you like hill work? My legs are my favorite muscle group to work so anything that works em while doing cardio (Hills, Stairs) are my favorites.
