It has been a week since I have blogged my workouts. Here is my week in a nutshell:
- 07/07 Stationary Bike Cardio Steady 45 minutes
- 07/08 Core
- 07/09 Rest
- 07/10 Stationary Bike Cardio Intervals 30 minutes
- 07/11 Rest
And today was a full body crosstrain of 6 exercises, 3 pairs of 20:20 x 6 rounds max reps- I took a little extra rest between pair sets and pushed the reps past the 0:20 frequently. I also added 20 minutes of steady cardio on the stationary bike. Today's exercises were:
- Lunge Jumps 11/6/10/11/11/12
- Monkey Push Ups (no jump) 5/4/4/5/5/4
- Running Reptile 14/13/14/16/18/14
- Pike Leg Switch 14/15/15/14/12/14
- Step Backs 13/14/14/14/15/16
- Explosive Star 8/10/10/8/12/10
Geez, the reps add up don't they? I know I was tired after this workout, but I still had enough mental gas to want to climb on the bike for a rippin' cooldown.
Life has been demanding and I have been playing each day "by ear" without an overly regimented workout cycle planned. Life is like that sometimes. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am not training for an event right now; I am training for life and I need to remember that it all adds up as every workout adds to the cumulative effects of staying active!
I have been working out in the basement- it is cooler during this awful summer heatwave. My garage is no longer a good place to get my burn on. Between the flies and the heat it's out of commission until the summer is over I think. Ah well, adaptability is crucial to sustainability and success!
Tomorrow is a Core day for sure! I am amped up already! What do YOU have planned?
