Gini, how often would you say you do a prescribed workout? (Meaning, not biking/hiking/etc)
I only lift weights and sprint once a week. My typical week looks like this:
Thursday: lift + sprint
Saturday: kayak or climb (or cross country ski in the winter)
Sunday: bike or hike
Did a Kettlebell/Bodyweight workout called Lucky Sevens with a 35-pounder
7 Swings Left, 7 Swings Right
7 Pushup Jumping Burpees
7 Snatches Left, 7 Snatches Right
10 Mountain Climbers (In lieu of sledgehammer strikes)
7 Clean Left
7 Clean Right
7 Squat Push Press Left
7 Squat Push Press Right
7 Knees to Chest
I did 5 rings muscles up supersetted with 5 handstands (going from frog stand to handstand slowly and in a controlled manner).
then I did 5 pistols on each legs
then I did 3 sets of 5 L-pull ups on the rings
I finished with 1 arm chin up work on the ring (using the other ring as a lever. I plan on being able to do 1 arm chin up next month).
then I did some rail walking which happens to be the subject of the blog post i will post tomorrow.
Laura, good luck, do you keep your carbs really low? Sometimes a little starchy goodness can be a good recovery snack for a glycogen-depriving workout.
Today... Was supposed to be resting, because Zuzanna really kicked my ass in those twenty minutes yesterday morning. Those plank lifts were no joke. But I got REALLY good sleep last night, and my energy told me to get my ass on my bike for a quick 30 minute ride, and I did the whole thing with no hands. It's surprising how much more your legs have to work when your arms aren't there to assist. For an added bonus, I extended both my arms overhead and tried to keep them very straight and sit with SUPERB posture the whole time while pedaling. My heart was POUNDING!
