yesterday my trainer decided to become Mikey Goldmill and hold a Rocky bootcamp..complete with the music from the movie! Omg I don’t know how the boxers do it. it was so much arm and shoulder movements. here was the breakdown of the workout:
Station 1: KB High swing – Squatting under a rope like we were dodging a punch
Station 2: TRX squat jumps – Tricep pushup
Station 3: Cherry pickers – jabs with 3 pound weights
Station 4; Star squat jumps – Star Mountain climbs
Station 5: Burpees – push ups
It was 30 second of the first exercise and then 30 seconds of the 2nd then we had a 30 second rest. we did 2 rounds at each station then rotated (rotation allowed no extra time beyond the 30 second rest). Seriously I wanted to puke by the time I got to the mountain climbs. I could hardly breath after the 1st round of burpees. I was so happy it was over! my HRM showed 784 calories burned. For a finisher we did an ab workout.
Today was all strength training – it sucked with the knots in my shoulders. but I still burn a good 500 calories (have mentioned that I love my HRM?) I am hoping to feel better tomorrow I spent extra time on the foam roll. My food intake has been good and my water consumption. I am hoping to maintain the water consumption levels all week and weekend.
well have a great night everyone!
