Two a days
We didn’t get to do the standard custom exercise we like to do for the cardio because it was cold and raining but we did drive to the gym and work out. We did a mile on the treadmill then 50 each of weighted body squats, box jumps, and weighted lunges. Then another mile on the treadmill followed by another set of the above exercises. Finally a cool down jog on the treadmill.
My arms are so sore today so I’m glad we didn’t have any upper body. Again I pushed harder than normal on the exercises. I’m proud of that.
Song of the day: What’s Up by 4 Non Blondes. An oldie but a goodie.
Today was one of my favorite cardio routines. And that’s not strictly because I came up with it. I used the principles in the program’s training guide to give us a similar cardio workout that we would find more “fun” and engaging than statically sprinting the same course over and over again to different distances. We basically sprint/pause/sprint for a mile. Then 50 weighted body squats (I did 40lb), 50 weighted lunges (again 40lb) then 50x 36″ box jumps. Next it’s another sprint/pause/sprint for a mile, plus another 50 weighted body squats, lunges and box jumps.
This routine is fun, but it will put a whooping on ya. I love it.
