No Rest Sunday.

Hodads

If you are ever in San Diego, allow me to treat you to the best burger in town (at least I think so). Hodads is this tiny little hole in the wall burger joint downtown, and it’s amazing. We ate there for lunch today. Sophie is telling a big story above, how cute is she? But with that delicious burger, had to come an intense workout.

GNC Pro-Scuplt – Fruit Punch

Pre-Workout

So, pro-sculpt is growing on me. You mix 1 scoop with 10oz of water. It reminds me of some sort of childhood medicine. Each time I use it, I like it a little better. The best thing is, I get the kick I need. I typically use pro-sculpt if I’m going to be doing lots of cardio. If I’m doing strictly strength training, then I’ll take the GNC Meta-Ignite. So far, no complaints.

The Workouts:

Fitbook

WOD: 10 rounds – 10 hand-release push-ups & 10 squats

By round 6, my triceps and shoulders were on fire. I went through those 10 rounds with very little rest. All you really need is a mat (if you’re on hard surfaces).

HITT: Provided by BlondePonytail.com I’m loving her GNC series workouts. They are the bomb! 

I switched it up a little bit since I technically just did 100 push-ups and don’t have a medicine ball (yet!)

Equipment: Jump rope, medicine ball/or dumbbell/kettlebell – whatever you have. An interval timer.

1. Thrusters/Jump rope – I used a 15lb dumbbell instead of a medicine ball.

2. Plank toe taps/Jump rope

3. Wood chops R/Jump rope

4. Wood chops L/Jump rope

You can check out the link above and watch her video demonstration. You set your interval timer to 30:30. 30 seconds of first workout then 30 seconds of jump rope. No rest. I was sweating right off the bat. I did plank toe taps instead of the push-ups.

Followed all that up with 30 minutes on my bike trainer doing speed intervals.

New favorite treat.

Sophie and I have fallen in love with Trader Joe’s Almond chocolate ‘milk’. It’s so good and a nice little treat. It’s a little high on the sugar side, so I don’t drink a full serving. But it’s sweet and tastes good after a workout.

Tomorrow starts trying to get my body back in decent racing form. 1 month till Ragnar TENNESSEE!!!!!!
