Working it out!

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Yesterday I was at my parent’s. I had my workout clothes and running shoes with me, but I was with my son so I couldn’t hit the road for run. I had also left my kettlebell at home… So what’s a girl to do to get a workout in and not break a streak? What I often do when I don’t feel like following a DVD-- I made up my own circuit! And worked I.T.!!

Stairs (up and down about 15 steps 10x)
Jack squat (20 reps)
Tricep dip (20 reps)
Jump squat (20 reps)
Push Ups (20 reps)
Butt kicks (20 reps- every 3rd knee is a count)
Mountain climbers (20 reps- every 3rd knee is a count)
Crunches (20 reps)
Burpees (20 reps)
Skaters (20 reps)
Screamers (20 reps each side)
HIgh Knees (20 reps- every 3rd knee is a count)
Squat with side kick (20 reps)
Alternating lunges (20 reps)

Did this circuit 2x. First round in 12 minutes, Second in 13 minutes…. Woweeeee!
Took several pauses, heart pounding out of my chest and throat! Sweat like crazy!!! Awesome workout! My butt and thighs are feelin it today!!

Then when I got home I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike while watching TV and reading Oxygen (Thanks to my BFF’s gift subscription. I’m a New reader and I’m L.O.V.I.N.G. it!!!!) I can’t wait to do the January Fat Blast workout!!!

Today is crazy cardio day! 3 mile easy run and 45 min spinning. Strength training is on schedule for tomorrow.

Work it people! Either you do it, or you don't. How bad do you want it?
No excuses. It’s a new year! Make it happen!

    I copied off the heart of your impromptu work out and sent it to a few friends, males in their mid 50's and titled it "how to get fit." It should be interesting to read their reaction. Thanks!
