It’s the Boss!

Aside from my running stroller, my Brooks, and my little running buddies….my next to favorite thing to staying in running shape is my gymboss interval timer.  


Interval/tibata training has really helped me gain strength as well as given me a chance to sneak in a relatively short workout with big benefits.

My workout today was inspired by these ladies over at Purely Twins.  Lori and Michelle are the go-to ladies for devising workouts that take minimal time and equipment but kick your butt.  My work-out today went like this

30 seconds alternating plank and high knees x 12 rounds


make sure to focus on high knees and form…even if you have to go slower


planks are a great all-over body workout!

Next I did 30 seconds each of skaters alternating with planks x 12 rounds


form is better then speed in these!


The next 12 minutes I made tough…

I started with 30 seconds burpees (with pushups) alternating with 30 seconds split mountain climbers x 12 rounds


I love/hate burpees! I am able to do 125 with pushups thanks to an amazing woman here who has inspired me to make these a part of my daily routine


These are mountain climbers with hip flexor burn

For the last 6 minutes I did 30 seconds of jump squats alternating with 30 seconds of Russian twists (I think they’re called that!) x 12 rounds

this is my favorite power move!

this is my favorite power move!

When you’re doing the Russian twists….keep your legs stationary and twist from your core…they don’t look like much, but they burn!

That’s it!  24 minutes and I got an all-over workout along with a bit of cardio.  Ryan and I later took a 3 mile run together and I consider this a great day as far as physical activity!
