30 Jul

During the weekends, I try and do my workout first thing in the A.M. then I have the rest of the day to do whatever! It’s a healthy habit to get into.

Today’s workout was a quickie; I started on the treadmill (too hot to run outside) then finished with a mini circuit.

HIIT Treadmill workout: 31 minutes

  • 1 minute sprint (varied between 8.0-9.0 mph)
  • 45 seconds jog (6.2-6.5 mph)
Mini Circuit: 25 minutes
  • walking lunges with a hip extension and shoulder press-2X
  • squats with calf raises (holding dumbbells in front of my shoulders)
  • squat into a good morning (holding dumbbells in front of my shoulders)
  • single arm diagonal shoulder raise (think of a one sided “Y”)
  • on a stability ball-bent leg glute presses
  • stability ball “T” “Y” “I”” fly’s
  • push-ups
