I got legs!
When I was making up today’s circuit workout I didn’t intend for it to be a leg-punisher but that’s what it ended up being. It was tough!
But, I have gotten ahead of myself. Let’s start with breakfast, shall we?
Mixed in with my oatmeal this morning was a spoon full of ground flax seed, 1/2 of a banana and applesauce!
I had some leftover applesauce from the donuts that I made for Joe’s birthday breakfast. Now, I am a sucker for all things apple-related so I am baffled as to why I didn’t think of this sooner. The applesauce made the oatmeal oh so smooth with just a hint of cinnamon. It was a win!
Another early morning found me at the gym — it is like a second home. I started off with 35 minutes of sprint and incline treadmill intervals:
(I just realized I forgot to do pull ups today — what a slacker!)
After getting nice a sweaty, I dove legs-first into this circuit:
As you can see, you complete 3 rounds of each section before moving on to the next section. I used a 40 pound barbell for the Squat & Press, a 30 pound kettle bell for the Kettlebell swings and a 20 pound medicine ball for the Oblique Twists. This entire circuit took me 27 minutes to complete and I was all but dead when I was done.
Like I said, I didn’t plan on this being a leg killer but man oh man where they on fire from the get go. Remind me to never do Squat & Presses and Kettlebell Swings back to back — brutal, I tell ya!
Tomorrow morning I make a stop at my chiropractor (yays!!) to get a much needed adjustment. I am hoping to get an at-home workout done before I have to leave for that appointment.
