Rowing workout #2

The past week or so, I have been in LOVE with the rowing machine at the gym. And the great thing about it, is each day I feel a different body area that gets sore from rowing! This week, my back was feeling it! That is why I made this workout, so that I will strength my back AND my abs.

I know that somedays, my abs are mighty weak and I can feel it in my back. I also know that at work I can slouch over the computer, so I want to get those muscles working!

I was feeling this workout and sweaty at the end. That is 24 minutes of rowing! So for each 1250m row took me about 6 minutes. It broke up the workout, because I COULD NOT row for 24minutes straight (at least, not yet!)

Question for you:

Do you feel that you have strong abs?

What is your favorite ab workout?

But let me tell you, I survived, and sweated my booty off! It was great to have a class like that again!

Question for you:

Have you ever tried a spin class?

Weekly workouts

Those 12 hour shifts just get in my way! haha. Monday was alittle bit of a bust, but my body needed the rest after Saturday night. I always seem to pick it up at the end of the week.

I really liked this, although it wasn’t the hardest workout that I have found (yup. I want something more difficult!)

I have another confession: I am obsessed with morning glory muffins

CIrcuit Training: Abs

Today’s workout was another sweaty hour, but it went by extremely fast!

So how this works, is you start at the 3 min sprint, then alternating lunges for a min and a 1/2. Then plank with knee raises for a min and a 1/2. Then back to the sprints, and all the way down till the cool down 🙂

Here are some of the workouts:

Side planks

Bicycle

 

Superman. I did this except on my hands and toes, not on my knees

 

 

Question for you:
what is your favorite ab workout?
