My Real Life Workout Today: 6/18/12
No “New Move Monday” today. Instead I decided to give you another glimpse into my workout routine. I’m not sure if you wonder exactly what I do to exercise or not, but I know that I’m always curious what other people do for theirs! My workouts are different EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Because I love playing around with different exercises and equipment, I have a HUGE list of exercises to use! I usually keep a similar routine for about 2 weeks, then change it up.
So here you go. A down and dirty snapshot of today!
(Special props to my friend Bekah, who came in towards the end of my workout and snapped some pics of me!)
I love to work in circuits. It just helps me when I can group exercises together. Today was an upper body focused day.I also end each circuit with a plyometric move. This really elevates my heart rate and keeps me in an anaerobic state. (Fat burning) I am breathless and burning the whole time through!!
Warm-Up: 10 minutes on recumbent bike at a moderate speed
3 sets done of each exercise in each circuit. I choose weights that make it very heavy to lift towards the last 1-2 reps. (10-15 lb weights.) Reps range anywhere from 8-15 depending on what I’m doing.
♦ Burpee/Push-Up/Renegade Row Combo (Currently, my fav exercise. See pictures)
♦ One legged bent-over reverse lat row (Similar to exercise linked here)
♦ PLYO: Prison Jump Squats
♦ Around the world (medicine ball) with plie squat
♦ Reverse grip tricep pull-down on cable machine
♦ PLYO: Flat-Belly Burpee (aka. Crossfit burpee)
♦ Laying Bicep Curls (laying on aerobics ball)
♦ Narrow Chest Press to a Chest Fly (laying on aerobics ball)
♦ PLYO: Hops (holding aerobics ball in air)
♦ Alternating Oblique Knee to Chest (Leg Raise Machine)
So what did you do today for exercise? Spill it!
