So Much Snoozing, So Little Time…

A trainer once told me…

10 Minutes

I think I need to reintroduce that mantra into my life.

Backing up to Wednesday morning…

5:15 – Alarm sounds. Immediate snooze. Pretty sure I didn’t even open my eyes.

5:25 – Alarm sounds. Alarm off. One eye open this time.

6:00 – Both eyes open…CRAP!

Fast forward 15 minutes and I’m at the gym, with 30 minutes to get in and get out. I hadn’t put together a workout in advance (whoops) and I wasn’t really in the mood to do a multi-circuit, detailed workout, so I warmed up for 10 minutes on the bike and then decided to combine some of my favorite exercises into one workout and just go-big-or-go-home for 20 minutes straight. Here’s what it looked like!

20 Minute AMRAP

Between the kettlebell swings and split box jumps, my inner thighs were pretty sore for a couple days afterwards so mission = accomplished!

(For those of you who aren’t familiar, for Split Box Jumps, instead of starting with the box in front of you, start with one foot on the floor on each side of the box then jump up onto the box so your feet meet in the middle.)

I hope you all have a great weekend!

 

AMRAP Workout

I found this little piece of (healthy) “thinspiration” and wanted to pass it along.  For those of you who are just starting out, or maybe have hit a plateau, DON’T STOP! It will be worth it in the end, I promise. 🙂

Keep GoingToday, I have a little bit of a different workout concept for you all.  AMRAP is a concept that is used in a CrossFit type workout.  The goal is to do As Many Rounds As Possible within the time allowed.  Get it? 😉 For this workout, use a 15 minute time limit and knock out as many rounds as you can.  If you are new to this concept, or to working out in general, start slow, then make a goal to complete 1/2-1 more round the next time and increase from there.

AMRAPI’m off to a mud run tomorrow. Five miles of obstacles, water and mud….wish me luck. 😉
