This morning at the gym, I did a great circuit workout before teaching my Women on Weights class.
I did the following circuit four times through:
- 400 meter row
- 10 box jumps
- 10 kettlebell swings
- kettlebell farmer’s carry on track (hold heavy kettlebell in one hand and walk on the track, switching hands halfway. Great for obliques!)
I did each exercise back-to-back, rested about 30 seconds, and then repeated for a total of four times. I really like doing circuit workouts because they are a great way to combine strength training and cardio and are a great way to keep your heart rate up.
After teaching Women on Weights, I came home and had a cup of Celestial Seasonings peppermint tea in my favorite gingerbread coffee mug.
I usually add a few drops of the SkinnyGirl stevia extract. My mom gave this to me and it’s perfect to sweeten up the tea a little bit.
Danny and I also got in some great workout this weekend. On Saturday, we worked shoulder and core. We did some of the hardest sit-ups I’ve ever done in my life. On the decline bench, we held a plate behind our head and did sit-ups. It might not look too hard but it was killer. I could barely manage two sets of 10.
On Sunday, we worked back and biceps.
We also did more plate sit-ups but this time we did them on the floor making it a little easier. Still hard but easier than the decline bench. If you have a chance, definitely try out these sit-ups!
Have a great day!
