JANUARY 25, 2020: SAY IT AIN’T SO, IT’S SWEATY SATURDAY!
Happy weekend! On Saturday’s we are all about the sweat! Get ready for some cardio and ab work to finish off your workout week!
Grab a piece of cardio equipment, or better yet, let’s take this baby outdoors! Ideally, I’d like to see you running and pushing your limits – you are capable of so much more than you think! If you have a problem with running due to injury (NOT because you just don’t like it), then you may sub a different form of cardio. I’d first suggest a rower, then not in any order: stair climber, bike, elliptical, treadmill (for walking or incline walking.)
Don’t forget to tag us in your workout selfies! #stretchfitness #sweatclub #sweatysaturday #teamsf
Form of cardio
Start with a 5-minute dynamic stretching and light cardio warm-up, such as jumping jacks, jump rope, light jog, dancing… whatever you want to do to get those muscles warmed up and ready to work! I recommend sipping on BCAA’s throughout your workout!
A. HIIT – 10 ROUNDS: Perform each exercise for 20 seconds, have minimal rest (ideally, none!) between exercises and 15 to 60 sec. rest between rounds.
Plank Up Downs
--- REST 2 to 5 minutes ---
B. COMPLETE 3 ROUNDS: Perform each exercise for 20 seconds, have minimal rest (ideally, none!) between exercises and 15 to 60 sec. rest between rounds.
Weighted Toe Touches
Perform a cool down of low-intensity cardio for 5 minutes along with foam rolling and stretching. Don’t forget to have a post-workout snack of proteins and carbs to help your muscles build and repair! See ya tomorrow!
