Months ago I participated in a really cool contest at my local FFC gym. You basically log all of your miles and workouts for a few month and they translate into miles hiked up Mt. Everest. It was all in support of someone actually taking on that challenge. Anyway, I WON! If anyone is up for a challenge It’s me, and we all know I can log those miles either way – why not win prizes for it.
I received 2 personal training sessions which is pretty cool because It’s always fun to be challenged by someone – We all need to be pushed sometimes and pushed, I was.
This morning before we met to train I did 30 minutes of cycling. I’ve been doing the stairs and running a bit but my hip flexor is bothering me a little bit and I want to give it a rest. So I did some intervals and hills on the bike which felt really good.
Our session consisted of 12 different circuits that we ran through 3 times. Every exercise consisted of 12 reps-
Sit down – stand up – barbell twist
Cable chest flies
Step up with barbell
Leg lifts holding barbell – abs
Squat cable twist
Side plank cable row
Barbell walkers – squatting low to the ground and taking 12 steps in each direction
Sumo squat concentration curls
It was a fabulous workout. All different than my normal routine and I’m super stoked to incorporate some of them into mine. We met prior to this session and did a whole workout on the TRX ropes which was great but it was really funny – apparently I’m much more coordinated in regards to weights than the ropes. Guess I had him a little worried there….new challenge to tackle!
