Today I finally got a strength training workout in – it’s been a few weeks! I kind of took it pretty easy but I’m definitely feeling pretty tired right about now. Getting started again is the hardest part and I’m so looking forward to being on a regular strength training schedule again. I’ve missed it a LOT.
Dumbbell Press: 3 sets x 20 reps (10# dumbbells)
Weighted Crunches: 3 sets x 25 reps (8# dumbbells)
The weighted crunches were KILLER! I haven’t done abs in a few either and I could tell during these crunches. I was up to 4 sets of weighted crunches before and today I only did 3. I might have been able to squeeze in the 4th, but I didn’t wanna push it.
High-Intensity Interval Training (or HIIT) Workout
2 minute warm-up @ 4 mph
11 intervals of 30 second sprints followed by 60 second recovery
1.5 minute cool-down @ 4 mph
10 minutes of steady state cardio @ 5.5 mph
I got a burst of energy so I decided to do some fast jogging after I finished the HIIT workout. I like it when I get that extra push.
