Notre Dame vs. Bama Workout! 24 minute “Butt Kicking” Cardio Interval Training

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Routines, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Do not misunderstand me, I am without a doubt a Notre Dame “Fighting Irish” Fan, but in light of Monday night’s BCS championship game and in the words of Desmond Howard at halftime, “This is just a good ol’ butt-kicking!” Thus the title of this workout, because it is truly a “good ol’ butt-kicking.” We did 4 exercises twice per 4 minute set, and we did 6 sets for a total workout in 24-minutes. It consisted of 20-second intervals of extreme work...

If you are like me, you have people in your life that make it so easy and fun to banter back and forth with each other. For example, my mother in-law… We have nothing but love for each other, but we always nitpick at each other during family gatherings, and it is often quite comical. Well, I have this same relationship one of our workout partners in the morning. She is the comic relief for the 5am workouts, but also my easy target for practical...

In the words of the band Mamas and Papas, “Monday, Monday” and time to workout the soreness that still lingers from Friday’s workout. I would like to add that today’s workout is not as intense, because one of our workout partners returned today from a one-month hiatus, due to a motorcycle accident and we wanted to ease him in to it:-) We did 5 exercises and 1 traditional cardio exercise, each one was 4 minutes long for a total workout in...

It is always wonderful to hear, after I describe the morning’s workout routine to my workout partners, “I am calling you all kinds of names in my head that you have never heard.” A statement like that always leaves me wondering… thus I have a list of adjectives that could have possibly been running through their mind: astounding, superb, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, and out of this world. I have yet to learn what they were, but I bet I am...

Both Eyes Open and Sweat-It-Out 30 minute Cardio Interval Training

Posted by on Dec 3, 2012 in Routines | 0 comments

Today, four others and I walked into our basement ready to work out with one eye open, and one eye shut in hopes that someone would recommend we skip the Monday morning workout and go back to bed. I am grateful to say we all woke up! This workout had 5 parts. In round one each station was 4 minutes long and in round two each station was 2 minutes long. If you do all of them back to back, the workout will give you 30 minutes of really intensive...
