I hope everyone had a great weekend and is fully in summer mode! Â I know in AZ we are. Â The temperatures have already hit 112 degrees. Â Remember a couple of weeks ago when I said that I was going to be completing Insanity Round 2 (for me)? Â We’ll I’m happy to announce that I have been consistently doing Insanity 4 times per week as well as either spinning, running, or yoga two other days during the week. Â The verdict after just 2 weeks? Â I can see the definition coming back into my legs and the cellulite leaving. Â I haven’t changed my diet at all… I eat a healthy, low-processed food diet anyways though (with the occasional indulgence,
like buffalo wings). Â I can also tell my stomach is feeling tighter and more toned. Â Let’s just say I think my pants are fitting nicer.
With Insanity, there are various workouts, but here is a typical run down of a workout in the first month:
5 minutes warm up: running in place, jumping jacks, log jumps, butt kicks, high knees, jumps, etc.
8 minutes of stretching
2 different circuits with 4 exercises in each circuit done for 30 seconds:Â a combination of something like this – Â squat jumps, pushups, burpees, running in place, mountain climbers, tricep dips, frog jumps, etc.
4 minutes cool down stretching
It’s a quick and dirty workout!
I went to an endurance spinning class last Friday morning at my gym and loved it! Â I have been to the class before about a year ago, but I hadn’t been able to make it back because of my schedule, but this summer I’m able to go. Â In this class, they put up an inflatable movie screen that plays music videos that we can watch throughout the entire class, which makes the time fly by! Â We stayed in our zones 1 & 2 (out of 5) for the majority of class, but it was still challenging and I was a sweaty mess when I left. Â If your gym offers endurance spin, take it!!
I’m off to
read my pharmacology notes watch the Bachelorette. Â I haven’t seen too many that have captured my heart yet, but I might be leaning toward Sean now. Â I do know that I want Kalen to go home. Do you guys have any favorites on the show?
