The weather looks like this for the next few days…
Rain rain go away, come again another day!
Since my workout was forced to be inside today, I took the opportunity to do something a little bit different. We’re actually supposed to get some nasty storms over the next few days, so I’ll probably be cooped up inside until Monday.
I started with an easy 45 minute run on the treadmill (had to catch up on the news) and then completed a simple circuit workout. My goal was to complete 15 reps of each exercise with 60 seconds of rest in between each one. I completed the circuit three times.
- Push ups
- Dumbbell squats
- Plank (90 seconds)
- Shoulder press
- Tricep kickbacks
- Stability ball crunches
- Biceps curls
- Back rows
I like circuit training because I feel like it makes me stronger without getting bulky. I also feel like it helps me achieve my endurance goals because the repetitions are fairly high and the workouts are time consuming.
Another advantage is that it can be done virtually anywhere without any expensive equipment.
Do you like circuit training?
After my workout, I definitely had breakfast on my mind. Yesterday’s post workout meal was on the sweet side, but today, I had savory on my mind.
I ended up making two sunny side up eggs on toast with leftover roasted sweet potato wedges from last night. Well, I guess the sweet potato was a "sweet" component, but I need some sugar in the morning. It’s basically essential.
Hmm… What will I have tomorrow?
