So when I got home from school today I ate a massive amount of grapes (good for pre-workout? – I’ll guess yes). 😉 Anyways, I was pretty tired today and almost didn’t make it to the gym but I’m glad I did because I have this awesome- sweaty (gross) workout to share with you.
First, let me mention that I do nahhht enjoy cardio. Well, I didn’t until I did Insanity, and then I got pretty decent at it and plus I know cardio is such an important part in my exercise routine, so now I incorporate it in every gym session.
On that note! Today’s workout was:
10 minute bike warm up – easy pace- 3.5 miles
burpees (10) squat jumps (20) and mountain climbers (25) warm ups
*(BTW: Burpees really suck, but they’re really good to incorporate into your workout!…I recommend doing a set of 10 in between a set of weight training). For example, do 10 burpees (or more if you’re ridiculous) then a set of whatever weights your doing. Then before moving on to your next set of weights, do another set of burpees. This way your heart rate stays up. Also, I noticed if I do this then I tend to move through my workouts faster, instead of taking my time and checking out guys. (B/c I know I’m not the only one that does that at the gym) 😉
Then today for weights I did back and bi’s.
- Assissted pull ups – 4 sets- 10, 5, 10, 5
- Lat pull down- 3 sets- 10, 12, 10 (weight 27.5lbs)
- Seated Row- 3 sets- 10, 12, 15 (weight:27.5lbs)
- EZ Bar bicep curl- 3 sets- 12, 12, 12 (weight:20lbs)
- Alternating bicep curl- 3 sets- 10,10, 10 (weight:12lbs)
I took it kind of easy on the weights today because I wasn’t too sure how I was gonna feel with the cardio, so I wanted to save some energy to put my all into it. (Good Idea points right here) 😉 BOOM.
Then I headed over to the treadmill and completed this workout. It was a 20 minute interval workout that had me working like crazy. If you want a good cardio workout, I HIGHLY recommend this workout, or similar ones. Either way, interval training always kickes my butt.
