1/7 Workout: Chest, Abs & HIIT

Posted Jan 07 2010 10:43pm

chest-workoutToday 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.

Chest Workout

Dumbbell Press: 3 sets x 20 reps (10# dumbbells)

Ab Workout

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.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Total Distance: 2.708 miles

Total Calories Burned: 317
