Fitness Friday: The Heartthrob

Haaaaappy Friday!

I hope this week flew by for you as quickly as it flew by for me.  Maybe it was the extra time to take naps, maybe it was seeing friends throughout the week, maybe it was having plans to look forward to this weekend, but this week definitely was a quick one!  Wherever you are, and whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Here are the workouts that I completed this week, and at the bottom, I am sharing a cardio-focused workout that will keep your heart rate elevated the entire time.  And bonus!  No weights are needed, so it can be completed anywhere, at any time!  Enjoy!

Saturday:  Rest.  We spent the day in Connecticut.

Sunday:  20 minutes of HIIT on the bike, 5 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill, 15 minutes of very slow jogging on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the elliptical, 5 minutes HIIT on the bike.  (Total cardio: 55 minutes).  5 minutes of easy arm lifting, and abs and push ups.

Monday:  In ‘N’ Out workout that featured HIIT on the bike, then a series of chest exercises and quick abs.  I shared it in this post if you’re interested!

Tuesday:  Rest.  (25 minute walk in the evening).

Wednesday:  20 minutes HIIT on the bike, 5 minutes incline walking on the treadmill, 5 minutes on the stairmaster, 5 more minutes on the bike.  Followed by a shoulder-back super set workout.  Finished with abs and push ups.

Thursday:  23 minute run OUTSIDE (2 miles-and I’m paying for it now with knee pain), 20 minutes on the bike, 5 minutes on the treadmill, 5 minutes on the Stairmaster, 10 minutes on the bike.  (Total cardio: 1 hour).  Finished with some abs + push-ups.

Friday:  10 minute jog home from class (I looked ridiculous running with my book bag on!), 15 minutes HIIT on the bike, then BodyPUMP!  This class was harder than usual for some reason.  My muscles felt tired and I was sweating a lot.  I guess that’s a good thing?

I think it was a pretty solid week of workouts, if I may say so myself.  I’m hoping to get in a good workout tomorrow morning, and maybe something light on Sunday, if time permits.  We shall see.
