Some Workouts

Thanks for the feedback on my last post. It really made me feel good about my little bloggy life 🙂

I think it’s only fair that I share with you my latest workouts. Since I’m actually typing this post ahead of time (gasp!) the following workouts are from Monday, 3/25 and Tuesday, 3/26. I was actually giddy before, during and after each workout because I knew I couldn’t NOT share!

Here goes.

Monday, I took the strength portion of my workout from Tina by doing the Defying Gravity Workout she recently posted (if you click on the link, it’ll take you directly to that workout).

I followed it up with an awesome HIIT run

Tuesday, I adapted a full-body tabata workout (I was in the mood to continue targeting all the major muscle groups rather than focusing on upper body, lower body or core). I ended up with this gem:

Reminder: tabatas are 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest repeated 8x through for a total of 4 minutes each round. For this particular workout, you will alternate between the two moves in each round. i.e.: Move 1 for 20 seconds, rest 10 seconds, move 2 for 20 seconds, rest 10 seconds, repeat 4x.

I immediately followed this strength circuit with 20 minutes of spin (rolling hills and resistance intervals) then this 20 minute treadmill run:

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been playing around with PicMonkey. Gotta make these workouts look as pretty as can be!

Now that I’ve hopefully inspired you with my strength and cardio workouts, here are some pictures of my little stink monkey (who is currently no so stinky since she came in the shower with me yesterday. AND LOVED IT.)

Got any good workouts to share??!
