I sometimes make the joke that my apartment, or the surrounding fields, the parking space etc is the site of some of the most intense training in town - not entirely sure if that's true, but its fun to say, and well - until someone proves differently, I'm going to keep saying it. Its extra fun to say because for whatever reason we've had two verified celebrity sightings nearby over the past few days (Paul McCartney, Tyra Banks). There's also a very good chance that Tyra saw my business card. I have yet to get a call from her, I'm assuming its because she has heard I'm a toughand is still working up the courage to make that call. LOL... you realize I'm being a goof when I say stuff like that - though there is a VERY good chance she's seen my card. ANYWAY - to live up to this odd reputation means I also need to train as hard if not harder than my clients - who are extremely dedicated - some of them work out so hard that they walk home in a sort of exhausted daze.
Anyhow, inspired by the workout I made for them today, I put a little twist on it to accommodate my at home indoor training (with the active rest of the occasional chore or dish to wash)
Start withexercises and a few of those fantastic pump stretches (my small group guys call these " Stretches" and they LOVE them)
- 20 swings
- 5 rows/side
- 10 Atomic Pushups
- 10 double and jerks
- brief break/water sip
Repeat 3-4 times
Start some eggs boiling - throw a small hand towel over the bar and help your grip by hanging from it while counting - remember to keep shoulders packed and abs tight too!
After the eggs have come to a boil, remove them from the heat and start your 10 minute timer. Use this countdown to time some 1 arm 1 leg planks - 45 sec each side minimum.
More pump stretches andto cool down.
