My friend Kara told me about some workout videos she’s used called Moms into Fitness. The name is a little dorky/cheesy sounding, but she assured me that they were quality workouts. At her urging, I checked out the website and found out that by giving my email address, I could receive 4 free workouts. Heck yes! I signed up on Tuesday and received my first video that day, a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout lasting 20 minutes. Last night after Leo went down I tried it out and was pretty impressed. I did 5 different exercises, 4 sets each, 40 seconds on, 20 seconds rest:
- running planks
- monster lunges
- tricep dips and donkey kicks
- switch lunges and tuck jumps
- in-and-out push-ups
Definitely a good workout and worked areas of my body that I don’t normally focus on (arms, plyometrics). It’s pretty short (20 minutes), so I think I would probably do it in addition to another exercise (a run, another video, etc.). Bonus that the instructor’s voice wasn’t annoying!
Other workouts this week: a walk with my mom and Leo this morning and on Tuesday night I did some running/walking through the hilly neighborhood – 2 blocks hard running, 1 block walking, repeated for about 30 minutes.
