Thanks for all the kind words on yesterday’s blogiversary post. It’s nice to know I share a hobby with so many other like-minded individuals. You’re my heroes!
As I promised last week, here’s the workout I recently started. I still have to go easy on the hips, which significantly limits my cardio. The sports doc gave me clearance to swim, but that’s about it. This is the look of the weekly plan:
- Monday: 10 minutes yoga, 30 minutes cardio in the pool
- Tuesday: Chest and Heart Workout (see below)
- Wednesday: Longer yoga practice at home
- Thursday: 10 minutes yoga, 30 minutes cardio in the pool
- Friday: Back, biceps, and core (workout coming Thursday)
- Saturday: yoga
I actually didn’t do yoga this Saturday. I spent 3 hours cleaning the boat while Kevin took the GMAT. It felt like a workout to me!
Here’s the Chest and Heart Workout. As you can guess, it works the chest. It also incorporates core, triceps, and shoulders. I say “and heart” because the supersets, heavy weights, and reps should elevate your heart rate. It isn’t like you’re going for a jog or anything, but it’s still great for those with injured hips/knees/feet/etc. that cannot perform traditional cardio or most plyometrics.
If you try this, let me know what you think. I’m interested in your thoughts, especially because I’ll be posting a follow-up back and biceps workout Thursday. Be sure to go heavy on these to really make the most of your workout.
Aside from an awesome dinner, I also got awesome coffee. McCafe helps make Mondays more manageable.
