I’m please to announce my return to the blogosphere after some absence! My life has been pretty chaotic the last few weeks. 3 weddings, a week of travel for work, friends and family visiting, a lot of work stress and deadlines, etc. Now however things are beginning to simmer down. During this time, I’ve been doing my best to keep up with the workouts. I have a few good ones that I’ll post posthumously and provide some feedback on what modifications I would have made. In addition, you’ll be seeing the amazing (and healthy) dinner we had last night in a future post!
On to the workout. It starts with a quick warm up, moves into a circuit and then finished with an AB HIIT. I’ve also added a skill section to follow along a bit with what Amanda’s been doing. I can’t wait for her return from Crossfit, I have not been pushing myself as much weight-wise without Amanda’s support in the gym lately.
5 minutes of moderate, steady state cardio. I will hit the treadmill, but feel free to spin, row or use the elliptical.
15 kbell swings
arm rotations with a dowel overhead
50 jumping jacks
20 russian twists with a 15 lb kbell
Back Squats. I’ll start out with a 45lb bar to perfect my form and then gradually add weight. My goal is to do 10 squats with as much weight as I can.
Repeat 3 times
- Curtsey Lunge
x 10 each side, with a weighted bar
- Sumo Squats with weight in front
x 15 with a 15lb weight

- Lunge on Bosu
x 10 each side, 10lb weight in hand
