On Tuesday morning, I was supposed to hit the gym, run, and follow up with some back and ab work. Well, it was rainy, and my bed was comfy. I still made it to the gym, but since I overslept 10… errrr… 20 minutes, I only squeezed in a run and the back exercises.
*Side Note: Remember how I mentioned how Nike Tempo shorts flatter NO ONE – see above for exhibit A. I swear I have a butt. It may not be much of one, but I have one gosh dangit!
So yesterday, I created this circuit to quickly incorporate the core work I skipped on Tuesday with the shoulder work I had planned. I got pretty sweaty, so I think that counts for something.
There’s the circuit, but lemme’ give you a little breakdown. Do a warmup. That’s important. Next, do 10 minutes on the elliptical. You can substitute your favorite cardio, but keep this first part at a steady yet challenging pace/resistance. Bust out of that comfort zone!
Okay, then it’s onto the first circuit, which you do twice. Feel free to rest between each round of the circuit if you need it. I had to catch my breath, but I didn’t think it was really “rest worthy.”
You pretty much continue as it states, but I’d like to mention that the first set of intervals are more speed focused and the second set are more resistance focused. Don’t forget a lil’ cool down as well.
Got it? Y’all are smart cookies. I have faith in you. I also now have a craving for cookies.
