Awesome fast workout and pics!

Hello!  I have a minute, so I’ll write.  I never know where my extra minutes will be!  I had a great workout this morning so I thought I’d share.  I’m a huge fan of mixing things up!!  I could never do the same workout day in day out.  Yes!  I have my favorites, but I love to try and learn new things such as SKIING!  This morning the mountain was so beautiful I felt as if it was a gift from heaven.  The instructor said something about it being a “precious place”.  That couldn’t be more true!  Anyway, back to my workout.  I’ve been liking a 6:00 a.m. boot class lately with one of my favorite instructors!  I think everyone has been reading my mind lately because she mentioned the need to get rid of the mom butt.  I’ve been focusing on that in my workouts lately AND my new Oxygen magazine had my favorite Jamie Eason sampling several butt exercises.  Yay!  This is a simple and short workout.  You could add more!  We loaded up a heavy barbell.  Heavy so it was hard and made you breathe deeper.  Most people don’t lift heavy enough, me included!  We did 5 rounds at 3 minutes each.  We rested 1 minute between rounds.  During the 3 minutes we did 3 deadlifts, 6 push ups, and 9 jumps over the barbell and we repeated that until the 3 minutes were up!  I’ll try to find pictures.  Just a minute…

th th-1 Female athlete jumping over barbellDoesn’t sound too hard, right?  It was (:  I want to do this again and make up a few more.  Think of a leg exercise, arm, and cardio and make up your own.  Why do these things make me excited!  I’m crazy!

Another new adventure I’m going to try this weekend is to teach my favorite HIGH FITNESS class.  All the regular instructors are out so they get ME and one of my BFF’s too.  She’s taught it a few times before so we’re going to go over and over it till I get it perfect.  This is good for my brain (:

Lastly, a few photos!  First one is me and my comfiest outfit.  Top and bottom are Lululemon.  I love the tops because they stick to you and are long.

photo 2Well!!  I’m super excited for this weekend.  Our kids have two days off school!  I’m doing my favorite workouts for the next 2 days, playing with friends, skiing, being with family, and more.  Have a wonderful winter day!!  I love all these words!  I’m grateful for nice people!  Be kind.

Tabata workout

Hey ya’all!  Sorry I didn’t post last week’s workout.  Here it is!!  Tabatas are the BEST, I highly recommend them!!

TABATAS

20 seconds on, 10 seconds off (8 rounds on each exercise)

1-BURPEES

2-ONE LEG STEP UPS-RIGHT LEG

3-ONE LEG STEP UPS-LEFT LEG

4-ELEVATED PUSH UPS WITH 2 KNEES

5-THRUSTERS

6-TRICEP DIPS

7-JUMP TOE TO ELBOW

8-V UP SWITCH ABS

9-KETTLE BELLS

10-LUNGE JUMPS

I got several of these exercises from a website called BODYROCK.TV.  Amazing workouts with unreal looking people.  I do think they are a little over the top when it comes to workout attire (basically underwear) so I can’t say they are my favorite.  Once in awhile I see what they are up to.  We did an amazing leg workout after the tabatas that was from bodyrock.  I’ll put the link on here because it’s too hard to explain.  LOVED IT!!!

Watch the 2 videos here.  I got some of the tabata exercises from the first video.
