Today's workout began with 30 minutes of intervals on the elliptical. I worked on challenging my speed and intensity by varying the incline as well as the level. I also did five thirty second sprints with 30 seconds of recovery at the end of the workout.
I then continued on to the weightlifting portion of my workout. Today I targeted chest and back with 4 rounds of supersets. I performed 8 exercises paired together as supersets with no rest in between, doing 3 sets of 12 reps. I took a one minute break to grab some water in the middle of the workout, but other than that I kept things moving. The weightlifting portion of my workout only took me about 17 minutes and the workout had my muscles begging for mercy. I love to feel the burn! My workout looked like this:
- Assisted Pull-Up and Assisted Dip Superset
- Dumbbell Bent-Over Rows and Dumbbell Bench Press Superset
- 1 minute rest
- Seated Row and Incline Press Superset
- Reverse Fly and Fly Superset
