nap time news break




The girls are down for a nap so I thought I'd share my last couple workouts with you, lol.

Here is my workout in brief from last night...DH was late again, I think he needs a spanking!

10 min r-bike
20 min stairmill!! I love that machine the whole time I did intervals. The last 4 of which were all out at the highest level 14 and recovery was at 7 for those. My heart rate was around 190 (this is very high...don't attempt unless you are in superb physical condition, typically 160-180 is as high as you need/want to go) post interval and recovered fast down to 140-150 in less than 1 min of rest. This shows good conditioning...Next my goal is to do all of my intervals at this max speed!! and increase my rest intensity
7 min of semi- cool down on elliptical...
By this time I was tired of waiting for DH to lift with sooooo I started my weight workout.

Lift back, shoulders, bi
Lat pulls paired with bicep curls 3 sets of 6-8 reps
Rows paired with shoulder press 4 sets of 10 reps
