How is it May already?!? Weren’t we just drinking eggnog?
May means summer is just around the corner and for many that means summer vacations. Yay!! Getting in a workout while on vacation is often a goal but not always a reality. For the next few weeks I will be posting vacation friendly workouts meaning zero equipment and super efficient and effective!
I am a little behind on posts this week so I thought I would combine an awesome workout with Food Log Friday.
I’ll be honest with you. I am a little behind because I had way too much fun at a local food and wine festival last Sunday. There were hundreds, freakin’ hundreds, of wines and champagnes to taste as well as beer and bourbon. I really went for it and probably tried 99 wines/champagnes and some bourbon for good measure. It was an epic Sunday Funday followed by an epic three day hangover.
Start with the warm up. Then, complete 3 rounds of circuit A, rest 2-5 minutes, complete 3 rounds of circuit B, rest 2-5 minutes, then end the workout with 1 round of the finisher. Within each circuit move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest. Within each circuit the reps decrease with each round. See the reps column for each circuit. For each exercise choose a weight that is challenging but allows you to keep moving at a quick pace.
It’s officially winter which means the weather is finally cooler in Gainesville. Florida “winter” is high 70s high 40s (no snow shoveling for us!) so I’m loving working out in the garage. This lower body circuit requires dumbbells, a jump rope and a bench, chair or cooler to rest your foot on for Bulgarian split squats.
To say that I am not the most technologically savvy person is an understatement. So, feel free to judge my next comment. I just, as in this past week, realized that you can “add variety” to Pandora stations. I was thrilled to discover this (about a decade later than the rest of the world) because I was getting bored of the stations I had. So far, I have two combo stations that I am loving for training.
