One thing I love about working out is that even if you’re feeling down or tired, working out makes you feel better when you’re done.
Take today for instance.
Earlier in the day I had a headache and was kind of tired and just not “feeling it”, but I knew I had to workout so I just did it.
Man am I glad I did!
All it took was doing the warm-up to make me feel good and glad I was working out.
Here’s the workout I did:
Warm-up: Bodyweight circuit including push-ups, squats and chops. It took about 3 minutes
1) Deadlift: 5 x 5 I love doing the deadlift and have been in one of those moods where I really want to increase the weight I use so I’m doing it at least once a week and am working on my “weak points” in the rest of my workout.
2A) Elbow Out DB Row: 4 x 10
2B) RDL: 4 x 10
3A) Straight Arm Pulldown: 3 x 12
3B) 1-Leg Curl: 3 x 12 per leg
4A) Shrugs: 2 x 10
4B) DB Bicep Curls: 2 x 10
Then I finished up with one of my new 4 minute bodyweight workouts. This really got me breathing hard and really turned a good workout into a great workout. I love adding these quick metabolic workouts to the end of my workout. You should try them.
