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!
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.
We’re two weeks into 2017. How are your resolutions going? Are you going strong? Are you downward spiraling into a world of donuts and negativity?
The end of the year is a great time to reflect and set new goals but you do not become a different person at midnight on December 31st. You still like ice cream and wine and pizza and hate running at 12:01am on January 1st. This is not a reason to give up and decide that you’re incapable of change. You are absolutely capable! Change is a process. It takes time, dedication to new habits and a little discomfort. As you continue with your resolutions keep this quote in mind:
It’s Christmas week! Only 6 days until Christmas! What are you most excited about? Presents? Family? Food?
Presents are pretty cool and all but I am mostly excited to see my family and eat. When I was younger, maybe elementary school, my Dad came up with the brilliant idea of having lobsters on Christmas Eve. It’s been a tradition ever since.
