Good morning! It’s a rainy day here in Watertown, but there is much to do! I have big plans of cleaning out my exploding closet today…I’m really not looking forward to saying goodbye to my old clothing friends, but I need room for sneakers and compression tights (priorities!).
I hope you all enjoyed hearing from my friends at Clean Eating and Focused Training yesterday! I’m hoping to do more weekly features and blog swaps from other super cool writers, so be on the lookout.
Yesterday Chris and I did the following HIIT workout. If you’re wondering about interval training, check out my previous posts here, and here. This workout is a full body destroyer. Get ready for Sweat Fest 2014!
Power Plank (alternating arms)
Complete each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10 seconds. Rest 1 solid minute between circuits. I’ve been struggling with figuring out a good way to time intervals. I’ve tried a few different apps, but never liked them as much as just using my stop watch…until now! I found this great (free!) app called Simple Interval Timer and it’s just that: simple! You can set time for work, rest and number of sets. It’s great!
That’s pretty much it for me today. I must have slept on my arms last night because I woke up with super sore wrists…wtf?! Who does that?! I’m hoping to get a shoulder HIIT workout in today. After looking at my UberFit pic yesterday, I realized I’d like to do some more work on my shoulders, particularly my rear delts. So hopefully my wrists stop aching and I can push some weights around…we will see!
I’m also on the hunt for some new cross-trainers. I’m usually a New Balance faithful, but I’m willing to try some other brands if anyone has a great recommendation! I’ve been told that I need a stability shoe because of my hip and outward facing feet. Any suggestions?! Let me know in the comments!
