Tuesday Part II~ After my run I had to teach Cardio Sculpt at 4:15pm. Yes, I did plan the whole class in comfort of my truck in the parking lot while listening to the radio! Here is what we did after the 5 minute warm up/stretch.
Kick box combo for roughly 5-6 minutes
~ 10 squats
~ 10 squat jumps
~10 squat pulses
2 rounds of this ( all moves were roughly 45 seconds long)
(10 times 2 sets)
Kick box combo for about 7 minutes
~ up right rows
(10 reps each)
Running the stairs– twice/ run back to the fitness room.
10 reps on each leg
Cool down/Abs and stretching
WHEW! The ladies did great!
Usually after class I head to running club, but since Andi and I ran earlier I went back to the gym ( naturally). I was not quite sure why I went, but after procrastinating I hopped on the Precore Arc Trainer and went for a full 30 minutes. I read an old Fitness Magazine that I had at home. It was new to me since I could not remember reading any of the articles, so that was nice.
A few weeks ago I was shipped an enormous package in the mail. The contents was in a cooler of dry ice! That stuff is cool ( don’t touch with your bare hands unless you wanna get BURNED!). In the cooler was a very large sample of Amafruits - Naturally organic, wild-grown acai fruit pulps & purees now available in convenient frozen smoothie packs. They come in 2 varieties :
I love this product!! All you have to do is run the unopened package under warm water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to thaw and that’s it!
From the website:
The three main functional benefits of açaí are its:
Just a few of the many benefits of Guarana:
No wonder these are described as SUPER fruits!
I have been making my green smoothies with my thawed packs of Amafruits. I have come up with some tasty concoctions. I like to mix in spinach coconut milk and sometimes a little bit of almond butter. Granted, my smoothie turns into more of a purple smoothie instead of green, but purple is my favorite color! I liked to start my morning with a refreshing smoothie before teaching a spin class. I don’t like to eat too much or anything too heavy before exercise so this was a great choice for me. And not to mention a post – exercise fuel. Sometimes after a long session of exercise; eating is the last thing on my mind (weird, but true), but the Amafruits was my first pick because I know I had to eat and it was delicious and nutritious!
Amafruits website is full of information on this product. The nutrition ( low calories, high fiber, omega rich etc) alone is amazing! A ton of amazing recipes and you can order online as well if your store does not carry this product ( they should!!) I recommend Amafruits Acai Fruit Purees!
