On Saturday I warmed up on the spin bike for 5 miles. Then i performed the following circuit 5x:
treadmill at 6 degree incline, 7 mph for .25 miles
10 burpees with tricep push up and single arm row from plank position with 10# db
10 leg press 15 plates
10/leg ham curl 2 plates
10 leg extensions 3 plates
10 of each/leg adductor and abductor cable 1.5 plates
then a one mile flat cool down.
This went by quickly and was fun do to the variety.
Sunday i also did a 5 mile spin warm up alternating sitting and standing each minute.
Then the workout:
1 mile easy paced (7 mph), 1 min of walking lunges with weighted bar
repeat for 3 rounds
40 min on the reformer and pilates mat work.
I love circuits. They keep me motivated and focused. And since they are short bursts of a variety of exercises, i can easily wrap my mind around the circuit. They can also be done with little or no equipment, so no excuses to skip a workout!
The pilates felt great on the hammies, my left is still not quite right but definitely improving. And i always love the core work pilates provides.
I also did quite a bit of sewing this weekend too! My sew jo seems to be returning. I think it helped having a friend come over for a sew night, i had to tidy up my sewing center. I will post pics next post of current projects! :)
Any goals or events coming up? projects?
