Saturday morning I tried a new-to-me workout, and it was killer. Kevin had done the Spartacus workout pretty regularly two summers ago, but I had never tried it.
Warm-up: Walk to the park with your dumbbells! Kevin had 15′s, and I had 8′s (the ones Kevin rescued from out by the dumpster!)
It got really sunny while we there so we ended up retreating to the shade.
10 exercises, 60 seconds AMRAP of each exercise, 3 rounds for time! GO!
- Goblet Squat
- Mountain Climber
- Single-Arm Dumbbell Swing
- “T” Push-Up
- Split Jumps
- Dumbbell Row
- Dumbbell Side-Lunge & Touch
- Push-Up Position Row
- Dumbbell Lunge & Rotation
- Dumbbell Push-Press
Men’s Health claims that this workout burns 731 calories in the average male. According to my (SUPER BUGGY AND SUPER ON MY NERVES) bodybugg, I burned about 185. Ouch. I kinda hate the bodybugg because the iPhone app is absolutely horrible, and the online application is really cumbersome. But,I do think it gives you a more realistic idea of how many calories you’re burning. So if you have the patience to put up with it…
We also tested out few outdoor box jump solutions. This one was a little too low, but I liked my hair flying in the picture. Haha.
My other workout for the day was walking while I talked on the phone for 2+ hours. I had somecatching up to do with Emily, one of my best friends from college. I knew it was going to be a long talk since we can rarely get a hold of each other so I suited it up and multi-tasked it, burning over500 calories while we talked. Sweet, right?
I made a very half-hearted attempt to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some tacos! Kevin had a more traditional plate while I went for a salad with the last of our pineapple. I figured it would work since sometimes they put pineapple in salsas, and it ended up being so delicious!!
I have to skedaddle – we have our marriage class in a few minutes here. Hope you’re having a great weekend!!!
