September workouts

"Some call it obsession - I call it dedication"

It's been a really long time since I showed you my workout schedule. Here's what I've been up to all September. You know, I really enjoy this one. I'll give you a more detailed description of each workout (since each workout is different) in the next few weeks.
I did the plyo circuit with my friend Maija yesterday - ooooh it was awesome to have someone to work out with! I really miss having a trainer of my own, luckily friends are just as good. :)

Lower body resistance training + treadmill workout

Upper body resistance training + interval cardio on the elliptical trainer

Lower body plyo circuit + low intensity cardio on the elliptical trainer

Upper body resistance training + deep stretching

Core circuit + HIIT (run, run, run!)

A light jog + yin yoga


So, I'm doing two-a-days and loving it! September has definitely been my favourite workout month so far. I still instruct a lot of group fitness classes, but they're mostly functional training, crosstraining and kettlebell classes, so I don't really work out while coaching (compared to Zumbas and other aerobic classes).
I've been rocking this routine for three weeks now, and I'm loving it. The first week was absolutely horrifying, I was constantly sore - my quads hurt so bad I felt like renting a wheelchair. Last week was a lot better - and this week is really not that bad at all. My body is really good at adapting, it seems. As I've said before, I want to keep my body guessing, so I'll do this workot routine for just a few more weeks and mix it up again - I don't want to get bored.

Now, before making a "I don't have time to work out"-speech, each gym (i.e. resistance training) workout takes about 30-40 minutes to finish, as does the cardio. Monday's workout is the only routine that needs a gym - you'll do just fine with 5 kg (11#) dumbbells in all the other exercises.
Oh, and remember that I do a minimum of 40 hours of work per week - I have just as much time to work out as you do. If you don't have time, you make time. I guess you could spare one hour of your day, even for a few days a week? In stead of lounging in front of the telly all night, go for a brisk walk or do a circuit workout at home. Or maybe hit the gym before work? Remember, a 20 minute workout is better than a 0 minute workout.

Stay dedicated,

    However, think on this, supρose you tурed a cаtchіer ρоst title?
    Ӏ mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "September workouts" is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo's home pаge аnd watсh hоw they write nеws heaԁlines to grab vieωегs tο сlіck.
    You might trу аdding a video oг a pictuгe or tωo to get reаders interеsteԁ abοut what уou've written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
