Fitness Friday 14

Hi Friends!

My parents are in town so I’m off spending the day with them, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging without a Fitness Friday post!

I’ve decided to go back and redo some of the workouts I posted back in December and January, before I learned how to make them look pretty! So some of these might look familiar to some of you…but I know I have a lot of new readers too, so hopefully you’ll still enjoy them! Several of them left me a hot, sweaty mess.

Let’s get right to it!

March 9th– I did one of my all-time favorite workouts- The  100 workout- legs. Use heavy dumbbells and push yourself to finish as fast as you can and it’ll leave you sore for days!

March 10th– rest day

March 11th– I put together a new workout to do for a warmup, but it can also be repeated a couple of times for a full workout! I paired it with a 20 min full body circuit that I put together a few months ago for a nice 30 min workout!


March 12th– rest day

March 13th– Went back an re-did an old workout. I used heavy dumbbells and really pushed myself on this one and it left me sore the next day!

March 14th- 3 mile walk in the sunshine with the pups!

Fitness at it’s finest :)

March 15th- I decided I needed to tackle a treadmill workout. However, once I got started I could tell it wasn’t going to go well. I was super ADD yesterday. I had a lot to do, my parents were coming…but, instead of giving up, I remembered Samantha’s post from Tuesday about refocusing. I completed the first half of the pyramid, then I hopped off, took the dogs for a quick one mile walk, and then hopped back on to do the second half when I got back. It worked! Splitting it up helped me stay focused during the 15 minute segments I was running, with time to clear my head in the middle.

So, tackle this workout as is if you’re in the mood. If you’re not, make it work for you. Take a break at the top to walk for a few minutes or do a quick chore and then do the rest.

I covered 3 miles on the treadmill and a mile outside. I call that a win.

Happy Friday friends!

  1. Super ADD, huh? haha. now you sound like me.

    There is no way I am doing 100 squats or a million mountain climbers. Well… I wouldn’t be able to feel my legs. That’s for sure! Have fun hanging with the parents.

  3. Killer set of workouts you have listed! Wow. I need more of that in my life–I’m too much of a runner and get lazy with the strength work.

    Enjoy your parents!

  4. Wow, very impressive!! I think the dog walk would have been the closest to my speed haha! 😉 Just kidding … kind of!

    Hey how do you make those cute looking boxes with your workouts?? I’ve seen something similar on other blogs, and was just curious if it was a special program or just some feature of Word that I don’t know about haha. I’m so behind the times! 😉

  5. Those are some great workouts! I love the quick ones I can do on mornings when I’m running late.

    Good idea to re-vamp the old one. I need to do that too!

    Happy Friday!

  7. Oh loving the 20 min circuit and 5 x50. I used to do a lot more functional exercises now they all seem to be very isolated: just squats or just shoulder press but not a squat with press.

  16. HI Lindsay. My cat just stepped on “enter” when she walked on the keyboard, so if you got a cryptic message that said “Hi Li” before this one…that’s why. sorry. LOVE this post. Spring can’t arrive soon enough and your pictures are wonderful. Have a great weekend.

  17. sigh. Not only did my cat mess up my last comment, she somehow put my comment on your Friday instead of Saturday post. sigh. sorry! :)
