Yesterday I was searching for some quality workouts online in an effort to change things up a bit at the gym when I stumbled upon a 5 x 50 workout from Men’s Health magazine.
The workout consisted of 50 repetitions of five different exercises, repeated five times through. I saved this particular workout for the end of my workout, so I just did it one time through, but I really enjoyed it!
The exercises included:
- Sumo squats
- Jumping jacks
- Mountain climbers
I split the pushups and crunches up into two back-to-back sets of 25 because 25 pushups (even done the girly way) own me. It ended my workout with a bang!
Before tackling the Men’s Health workout, I completed 30 minutes of intervals on the treadmill that looked a lot like Tuesday’s interval workout, followed by 5 minutes on the stair master and 10 minutes on the elliptical.
Once I was done, I then headed up to the loft where Ryan was finishing his workout. I preceded to wait patiently for him to finish…
Well, I thought it seemed like I was patiently waiting until we were on our walk with Sadie and I asked him how his workout went this morning.
He replied saying it was good, but a little rushed at the end.
I said I was fine waiting for him to finish and hoped it wasn’t me who made him feel rushed. I was simply “hovering.”
To this he replied, “The ‘hover’ means hurry up. I use it all the time when we’re shopping. You can’t fool me. I invented that move.”
Okay, so maybe he was right. Hover = Hurry up. Having someone hover over you may be the most irritating thing in the world, so it works like a charm to get people moving! Muhaha!
Aside from the hover-talk, our walk with Sadie was also filled with kitty-spotting!
How cute is this little guy?
I wish my stinkin’ allergies would go away so Ryan and I could have a cat. They’re so adorable.
Breakfast was a move-move-move kind of meal because we spent a little too much time with the cat and I fell behind on my typical morning timeline.
Time to work! See ya ‘round lunchtime.
