- HIIT workout – 20 minutes
- Walking/cooling down/stretching
This morning at the gym, I did the following workout:
After the ab exercises, I did a high intensity interval workout on the Stairmaster. I climbed fast for one minute and recovered for two minutes. My recovery speed was 5 and my work speed was between 18 and 20. The Stairmaster at my gym only goes up to a speed of 20, so I was nice and sweaty by the time I was done!
I finished up my workout with some slow walking and stretching. My hip has been bothering me lately, so I am trying to make sure I stretch.
Post workout I had an EAS protein drink and a Kashi bar – random but I was hungry!
I have still been wearing my FitBit on a daily basis and I walked almost 20,000 steps yesterday! So close!
So far, I am really liking it. The one thing that I don’t like is that I have to put it to “sleep” each night. It’s really easy to do – you just have to tap it 5 or 6 times, but for some reason, I can never remember to do this. I am not too concerned about my sleep, so it’s not really a big deal to me. And it also has to be “woken up” in the morning. If I do remember to put it to sleep, I usually forget to wake it up in the morning.
The one other thing I don’t like is that I don’t think it counts the Stairmaster as steps. I walked over 100 floors and it didn’t count it. Besides that I like using it and I feel like it helps keep me accountable.
The kids don’t have school tomorrow so I won’t be teaching BodyPump. Instead, we’ll be getting ready for Easter!
Have a great afternoon!
