It’s been a great month so far
Walking around Casas Adobes
a stop at Whole Foods for almond butter, a juice and other necessities
making the Pilot’s favorite dinner:
and a new circuit workout.
But first, has anyone seen one of these before?
A Rumble Roller!
When I first saw it at the gym, I thought that there’s no way you roll on that like an actual foam roller.. unless you really, really like pain. It has to be used for balance work or something like that…
Nope. Just Googled it and it is the Grand Poompa of all foam rollers. Apparently it gets all the kinks, and as scary as it looks, I’ll have to give it a try just so I know what it feels like.
After being mystified by said roller, I got my workout on:
-Cable tricep extensions
-Cable V-rope pullbacks
-Side laying lateral raise –right side
-Side laying lateral raise- left side
-Barbell bicep curls
-Stability ball hamstring curls
-Supine chest fly
-Stability ball overhead pass
Follow with cardio of choice, 20 minutes of interval training- 1 minute 20 seconds off, 30 seconds balls to the wall.
Cool down and stretch.
Greens topped with quinoa and some of the filling I saved from the Pilot’s enchiladas:
Sautéed shallot and chopped green chili, seasoned with cumin, chili powder, sea salt and cayenne, with black beans, rotisserie chicken and fire-roasted diced tomatoes mixed in
Doesn’t look pretty, but tasted pretty amazing
Today we’re taking Bell for a walk and then meeting up with friends for lunch.
Hope you have a happy Friday!
Something to do: Musical cardio! <— my favorite kind of cardio
Download this song:
and for every verse, keep the pace fairly quick, but pretty easy to maintain. Every time she sings “stronger” in the chorus, increase your speed until you’re sprinting. Bring it back down for the next verse. It’s a fun way to keep boredom away and add a 3 minute kick to your cardio workout! You’ll probably also hate the word “stronger” by the end of the song
