(anyone else singing the song in their head now?) Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope your day’s going well so far. Mine is, despite Tuesdays being early and long days – 6:30 am to 6 pm! Phew. Today isn’t stuffed full, hence the great workout and breakfast break I just had, but Thursday is jam-packed with 9 sessions! Whew again, just spelled differently. 😉
Here’s what I did today for my Tuesday workout:
– Pull Up Program: 5 sets of 8-7-6-5-5 reps. I had to break up the 8, 7 and 6 (sore from yesterday!) but nailed the full 5 reps pretty easily. Progress!
– Cardio & Core: lots of jump rope and some ab burning going on. More specifically:
When I don’t feel like “doing cardio,” I pick up a jump rope and get to jumping! It’s a great substitute for cardio as it gets your heart rate up but also works your core (keep it tight as you jump!) and shoulders (amazing how they can burn with the slight movement!). Do you jump rope? If you do, keep it up! If you don’t, remember that you WILL get better with practice. If you catch your feet, just start again, light in the toes, standing tall, shoulders back and just flicking the wrists.
Just a short workout post today to give you a little something different to switch your routine up! I also wanted to bring you back with a few vlogs that will be coming your way. The first is a video review of another piece of Zensah running gear and the second is a new love from a local company – I can’t wait to share! So check back tomorrow for the first of two vlogs for the week.
In the meantime, grab a jump rope (or just do high knees! Mimic the movement – it truly works!) and get moving today. 🙂 Have a great Tuesday; live well & be well,
