It has been waaayy too long since I got a post up, life has been hectic lately! I wanted to get at least something up on the blog so I decided to share my upper body workout from this past week. It’s a mix of some strength as well as a dash of HIIT for some extra cardio since I’m doing a small cut right now. I like doing workout this way because, well, I don’t like cardio haha! So it’s like a sneaky way for me to work some cardio in.
Just because you’re traveling doesn’t always mean you’re out of luck and have to skip a workout. There’s plenty that you can do with just your bodyweight and zero equipment to work up a sweat! Here’s one that I put together over the weekend when I was away for my church’s retreat.
AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) in 25 minutes:
10 jump squats
10 ice skaters
10 high knees
10 plyo tricep dips (or regular)
10 rocket leg launchers (per leg)
10 power skips (per leg)
I took breaks as needed but tried to keep them minimal to just grabbing a drink of water or taking a few seconds to catch my breath before starting the next round. It was killer and I worked up SUCH a sweat! I had to crank up the air conditioner in the room maybe two rounds in because I was already that sweaty.
If you try out the workout let me know what you think!
Good morning everyone! I have a new workout to share with you guys that I did the other day after my run. I was short on time Saturday morning since I was going bridesmaid dress shopping with my friends and knew I’d be gone all day. I wanted to give Layla some exercise since I’d be gone so long so I took her for a short run first and then did a quick HIIT circuit to give me the most bang for my buck. HIIT is one of my favorite go-to’s when I’m short on time because you don’t need much of it to be effective! I only had about 30 minutes total to do both so I first took Layla for a 1.5 mile run and then busted out 15 minutes of some plyometrics.
Good morning! I have another workout for you guys. It’s been very snowy and cold here lately so Monday morning I’ll admit I didn’t feel like braving the freezing temperatures for a run. I was in the mood for a workout at home so that’s just what I did! I also think it’s very important for overall athletic performance to incorporate conditioning work every so often so probably about every other week I will do a workout like this in addition to my usual cross-training.
Happy Thanksgiving-Eve everyone! I know it’s been awhile since I blogged (I feel like I say that alllll the time now) but it has been quite a crazy few past weeks. The new church I joined back in May keeps me pretty busy but I am not complaining at all! I’ve found a wonderful new community of people my own age and there are lots of events to go to as well as volunteering opportunities. It can still be a schedule adjustment at times so I’m trying to get better at time management because the time I used to have carved out for blogging is not available anymore. So basically I try to blog whenever I get a chance which doesn’t exactly work out haha! But I’m trying to get better at scheduling out some more time and actually sticking to it.
Anywhoooo, I thought I’d pop in with a little random catch-up of what I’ve been up to lately as well as share two workouts I did this week. We’ll start with last week which basically was spent either running around or actually running haha! My long runs have been going simply fantastic which I could not be more thrilled about as all my cross-training and nutrition have been paying off. I’ve actually been considering taking a course to become a running coach but I haven’t decided anything yet. But that is definitely an avenue I would be interested in pursuing for the future. For the time being, though, I’m sticking with nutrition coaching as well as designing custom training plans.
