Vacation Burn Workout

Oh Hey.

Just got back from Banff/Lake Louise with Tyler and my parents and the Margarita machine is about to be put into action. BUT FIRST. I thought I would share my latest gym workout with everyone. My arms were a-hunka-hunka-BURNIN’-love afterwards. (Since my parents arrived last week, I have managed to get in a workout about every other day. On days a don’t have an ‘official’ workout, I have been walking walking walking and still sweating sweating sweating.

Vacation Burn Workout

10 minute HIIT workout (90 seconds moderate pace, 30 seconds WORK- this can be either increasing speed or resistance or both. I used the spin bike)

Round 1

  • Single leg hammer curl x12
  • Curtsy lunge with bicep curl x12

(then switch and do the same thing to the other side)

  • Lateral raise x12
  • Front raise x12
  • Overhead press x12
  • Weighted split squat x12

60 seconds of alternating toe taps/jump rope

Round 2

  • Standing hammer curl x12
  • Curtsy lunge with knee and lateral raise x2

(then switch and do the same thing except change legs for curtsy lunge)

  • Lateral raise/front raise combo x12
  • Tricep kickback x12
  • 4 SETS OF WEIGHTED SPLIT SQUATS (2 sets of 12 each leg…and HOLD THE LAST REP OF EACH SET AS LONG AS YOU CAN!!!!)

10 minutes HIIT (same as above- I did the elliptical this time)

…if you REALLY push yourself, this workout will really get you good ‘n sweaty.

I leave you with some pics from the day:

Started with a 5:30am walk/run with the pup

And of course she rolled. And rolled. And rolled. I will only bore you with one of the 5203957 pictures I took of the event:

Now for some pretty mountain pictures. I took more of them on my camera, so I will post them as soon as I am margarita free.

Kinda so pretty it looks fake, huh? And that’s just the side of the road. Wait till you see some of the gorgeous pics of the water!

And last (for this post):

Cocktail time. I’m out.

**PS: I wrote a Guest Post for Athena over at Fitness & Feta which she featured yesterday. Thanks, Athena!
