I’m sharing some of my workouts from this past week, and hope a few make it into your training plan!
This week is rolling by as so many do, right? I mean, don’t get me wrong, the days can feel long when you are in charge of a toddler.
In reality, time flies. My little Jada will turn 2 years old next month. What?!
Spencer and I are trying to soak up her fun personality (and ignore the tantrums) every moment we get.
As I’ve mentioned before, part of my motivation for staying fit, is to simply to keep up with her! So, let’s revisit a couple workouts from the past week.
Workouts from the Week
I have done a similar workout before, but this time I did overhead squats instead of back squats.
1. Overhead squats 65#
2. Kettlebell swings 50#
Overhead squats are outside my comfort zone which means I need to do them! It’s easy to default to movements that come natural to us, isn’t it? You can see the Instagram video of the OH squats HERE.
Next, I had time after a training session to sneak in a workout. After a 1 mile warm-up run, I did the following.
8 Double KB Clean & Press 25#
10 Box Jumps 24″
12 Renegade Rows (ea. arm) 15#
This one got my heart rate up and kept it there, so I had to pause quite a few times.
Finally, I finished listening to Serial. Now what? That podcast series pushed me to run this workout again, so you know it was good.
I haven’t run 5 miles in a looooooong time!
1. What are you listening to? Any podcast suggestions?
2. Tell me about a new exercise/workout that excites you!
