I asked Dave for workout suggestions before bed Tuesday night. On the fly, he whipped out this quick workout that woke me up & got me going Wednesday. He is good like that — see how he spotted this rope swing to get in a quick pull up workout in Thailand? 😉
Back to AZ: the idea was to fit it in my early morning routine, hit various, specific muscle groups & prep my body for climbing after work.
6 sets of the following:
- prisoner squats x 25
- santana push ups ~ 20 seconds
- dips ~ 20 seconds
- hanging L/V “sit” ~ 10 seconds
This workout wasn’t brutal, but I was surprised how fatigued everything became only part way through — my poor triceps are weak! Dave also “challenged” me to complete 200 more prisoner squats & 100 desk push ups throughout the workday. Jeez, this guy. 😉 It felt good to keep moving throughout the day though & be warmed up for climbing.
I am sharing a few of my workouts lately just to show how easy it can be to fit in a workout, even if you only have a short amount of time. Keep in mind though, short workouts need to be intense to be effective, so really give it your all.
I also wanted to tell you about my SIMPLE lunch that was SO DELICIOUS.
Dave was kind enough to make extra jasmine rice Tuesday evening for me to pack in my lunch. I tossed in chickpeas, hemp seeds & toasted sunflower seeds; drizzled it with a little flaxseed oil & sprinkled a touch of sea salt. It was amazing slightly chilled. I will be making this again…soon.
What is your favorite type of workout?
