Can't believe I forgot to post this morning! WHAT a workout today!!!
For time - 5 rounds of:
Run 400 meters (1/4 mile)
15 2-hand dumbbell bent over rows w/10 lbs
I RAN!! Well, the first round anyway. Still on the tail end of a chest cold and thought I was going to cough up a lung after I finished that 1/4 mile, but I RAN! I biked 1/4 mile at 10 resistance and no less than 15/mph on the other 4 rounds. Talk about getting your heart rate up! That definitely did mine!
My burpees are kinda funny, but still they're burpees. I use my aerobic step because I still can't squat all the way down to put my hands on the floor - anyway, I squat and put my hands on the step, kick my legs back, bring my legs back in and stand up. I didn't do the "jump up" at the end today, but I do plan on incorporating that in the future. I can't wait until I don't need my step anymore! I do have it on the lowest setting, which is 6 inches - but I really need those extra 6 inches right now.
I used my adjustable dumbbells for the bent over rows - 12 lbs. each dumbbell, which I guess means I used 24 lbs total. I wasn't sure if Jenni meant 10 lb total dumbbell weight or each dumbbell, so I erred on the side of caution and did each. Of course, those seemed really easy which means those muscles used will be super sore tomorrow! lol
I did run down the stairs afterwards - not by choice. I started downstairs and my thighs got all jiggly, squiggly and it was either "run" or fall. Needless to say, I chose to run! lol
