Friday Intervals

13 Jan

TGIF! And what better way to start the weekend off right than a schweaty interval run?

Start with a 5 minute warm-up then complete as following: modify as needed! This workout can be done 2 ways:

  1. complete the workout as a whole with no/short breaks.
  2. complete the first interval (3’s), hop off the treadmill and complete strength exercises, complete the second interval (5’s), hop off the treadmill and complete different exercises than the first time, complete the last interval (3’s) and hop off to complete core exercises.
Interval Speed
3 minutes 6.8
3 minutes 8, 6.8, 8
3 minutes 6.8
5 minutes 7
5 minutes 9, 7, 9, 7, 9
5 minutes 6.8
3 minutes 7
3 minutes 9.2, 7, 9.3
3 minutes 7

After, I trained my client and we got to talking about why the Russian Twist (abdominal exercise where your feet are lifted (more advanced!) and you twist your upper body from side to side) is called that? Does anyone know?!

Breakfast followed, a tasty bowl of muesli with a banana and a hottt latte :). Mat cleaning, office work and a chat with Jennifer finished the workday! I’ll be back to work FREE body fat and blood pressure tests from 4:30-6:30pm!

I am CRAVING a Gigi’s cupcake tonight!
