I love Pinterest, especially when you narrow it down to just fitness pins. There are all sorts of inspiring quotes and images, healthy recipes and always a few unexpected things.
I found this workout that was pinned by Hillary at Nutrition Nut on the Run. Her blog is so lively and bright, and she has some delicious looking recipes there too.
When I first saw this routine I thought it was something that was just thrown together to make a neat image so yesterday I decided to test it out.
I warmed up with a little jump rope and about 5 minutes on the rowing machine then got to work. It wasn’t horribly difficult the first time through so I did three rounds with a 1 minute break in between. By the third round the push ups were tough so I modified them and the dips were killing me. I found myself using my legs to help. I used 5 lb weights for the bicep curls since it was going to be at least 100 curls total. The first 40 second plank is deceiving. It makes you think, I got this! Then once you transition from the tummy tucks back into the plank you’ll be telling a different story. Boy I was counting down those 40 seconds!
In a nutshell, the workout is good but you would have to do at least 2 or 3 rounds and at least twice a week to see results. I would suggest warming up first for at least 5 minutes with a short jog or jump rope and always stretch when you’re done and your body is still warm. Yesterday was my ‘easy’ jogging day so I started my workout with this routine and then hit the treadmill. I’ll try this for a few weeks and see how it goes and how much closer I get to my goal of 10 unassisted pull ups.
