Spin- Today was another interval. These can be the easiest classes to plan, but sometimes I can sit and sit and sit and not come up with a new idea. I think I did that today. For the most part, it was a repeating pattern kind of ride. After the warm up we had a speed interval ( standing run, seated fast flat- repeat) and then we sprinted and recovered. Eight sets of this and than we were done! 😉 I think I had 8 on my mind after last nights run. Well, whatever the reason it worked!
After class I made up a quick circuit for myself. I performed 4 sets of 10 reps:
Incline Push ups
Lat pull down
For the deadlifts I did them off of a step with rises to give myself more range of motion. I also did a different variation of the DL each time ( standard, sumo etc.)
For the push ups I performed them with my hands on the step bench with risers. I also did them with one leg lifted ( 5 reps each)
The squats were done with a body bar ( 22lbs?)
The lat pull down was also with the body bar
abs on the ball- different type each set.
I took very little rest between sets to keep my heart rate up and I was done in less then 12 minutes!
Short, sweet and effective.
This means that my Friday weight workout has to have a bit of craziness in the mix. I wonder what I am going to do?? Any ideas? Gimmie! Today is the last day of my Herbal Cleanse! I might have to start the next phase on Friday instead of tomorrow. I have my treadmill test at 4 pm. I have to fast for 4 hours and no supplements either. That won’t work. I can start a day late. No harm done!
The rest of the day I will do domestic crap. 😦 I wish I had a maid and a chef. I like to cook , I just don’t like to clean up the aftermath. Laundry is not so bad; it’s just the folding and putting away that makes me annoyed!
I also have a client at 6 pm. I meet her once a month at her house with a new workout. There are 9 more hours left in the Moving Comfort Juno Bra Giveaway— have you entered yet??
On tap for tomrorow: Treadmill metabolic test!!! Not sure what after that…maybe a short steady state workout.
