About a week ago I taught a cardio sculpt class. I gained inspiration from the Run Like A Mother weight training workout! As usual, I had good intentions of incorporating this routine into my routine. Well, let’s just say it has not happened YET!
Because it was in a class setting I had to make a few changes. Here is the original Run Like A Mother Workout first.
2 mile warm up
400 meter sprint at 5k race pace
6 Chin Ups
400 meter sprint
12 squat + press
10 push ups on stability ball
12 tricpes dips
30 back ext. on stability ball
30 lunges + Biceps
My Cardio Sculpt Class
5 minute warmup
Stair Run ( 3 flights up/down)
12 Lat pull downs with Body Bar
12 squat + press
10 push ups on ball
12 triceps dips
30 back ext. on ball
30 lunges + biceps curl
We did this circuit twice. I can’t remember how many times the book recommends. It was at least twice!
I added some things to the end of this workout.
Inner Thigh Squeezes with stability ball
Circle or Boxer abs
Low back exercises
I think it went over fairly well….At least I liked it! 😉
A recipe! I never actually write down an actual recipe. I am a throw some stuff in a bowl and hope for the best kind of chef!
I made these little protein pumpkin bites last weekend on a whim. They turned out pretty tasty. The kids like them and everybody is still alive after eating them! That’s my idea of a successful recipe! 🙂
2 cups almond flour ( left over from my stint as a Paleo gal)
1/2 cup + 2 Tbs pureed pumpkin
1/2 cup + 2 Tbs coconut milk
1/2 cup egg whites
1-2 Tbs agave nectar
optional add ins–cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, coconut butter , dark chocolate chips– Yes, I added all of these things.
Mix and put in cupcake liners. 1-2 tbs per liner
Bake at 325* for 12-15 minutes. take out ( don’t forget your over mitt). Eat. Yum.
We have a winner! Congratulations to #21…..Heather! 🙂 Please email your address and size Let’s make sure we don’t wear our shirts to the gym on the same day…or maybe we should! 🙂
