So, this silly cold is still hanging around. I do however, feel much better than I did yesterday and I managed to get somewhat of a circuit workout done and dusted this morning. I think it might have something to do with the fact that last night, I fell asleep on the couch, woke up around 9pm, stumbled into bed and continued sleeping until I woke up this morning around 4.30am…. Lolz.
That is pretty much going to be the story of my life this week though. Michelle is away and I really feel the need to catch up on my sleep and somewhat, recover, from last week’s epic catch up activities.
Paws thinks that is a good idea. Do you agree? I am trying really hard to win the love of my body back!
20mins cardio on treadmill (with my running shoes)
1min walking 6.5, 1min running at 8, 10, 12 and 13
Then complete the circuit below as quickly as possible. No rest between sets – although this was a struggle, still having a bit of a head cold.
10 burpees to start off
DB bench press 10kg
Upright BB row 15kg
DB alternating hammer bicep curl 9kg
Front and side shoulder raises 4kg
BB push press 15kg
The first round I completed 20 reps of each exercise. The second round I completed 15 reps of each exercise. I was feeling a bit weak and decided to keep the weight, but lower the reps. Man, it was a bit of a struggle.
Cardio HIIT on the treadmill. Just a couple of rounds sprinting, then I felt like I was pushing myself too hard and I backed off.
To finish off, I decided to just try and max out on the above circuit. Do as many reps as I could and call it a day.
592Kcal burnt during this workout.
