I'm not a trainer, not a nutritionist but a girl scared healthy, by an unexpected heart procedure…Fitness & eating healthy saved my life, I'm ready to see the world one city at a time! This is my personal journey.
After a fun date night with my husband, we decided to hit the gym for weightlifting (back) & interval running. This is my 3rd Saturday in a row I’ve been to the gym, but the first time going late at night. We were there from 8:00-10:00 PM. It may sound insane, but it was one of the best workouts ever!
The sweet front desk attendant said “WOW you are so dedicated” and kindly asked how many days I went to the gym. I said “6 days!” I thought it was very sweet of her to notice 🙂
I didn’t have to wait for a single machine, weight, and most importantly the sauna was not crowded! AWESOME!
It’s calmer around this time-usually our gym is filled with loud, high school boys. It can get overwhelming when they start yelling random things at each other. SIDE NOTE-If people can hear you through their headphones, you’re speaking way too loudly!
We took our time-with nothing planned after a workout, we slowed down, stretched to make sure to avoid sore muscles the next day.
After doing the same cardio routine for almost 7 months, I needed to switch things up. Last week I added interval training 2 days a week- as I mentioned here I do the “Little Method” on the treadmill for 25-27 minutes, with a 10-15 minute cool down. It’s a quick & effective way to burn calories.
Quick Tip: It is essential to perform a proper cool down, I.E. walking with no incline, and at a slow pace (2.0 Speed). I make sure my heart rate is down 90-100 BPM.
I also make sure to do quad & calf stretches. This helps with stiff muscles and soreness the next day.
