I’ve recently started a new weekly workout ritual. Since Mike and I hardly ever see each other we’ve decided to incorporate a Wednesday morning gym session together. Here’s how it works: Each week we alternate coordinating the work outs, so one week I lead the circuit, and the next week he leads. It always has to be a lower body circuit since Mike is notorious for only working out upper body (Yes he’s that guy at the gym who only works out chest & bi’s <– annoying!) and you have to keep the heart rate fairly high.

Today was my turn to lead so I decided to make it nice and easy since he’s basically a leg rookie, and is jealous of these bad boys…….

In his dreams 🙂

Treadmill Warm up:

Time Speed
0:00 – 1:00 3
1:00 -2:00 3.5
2:00 – 3:00 5
3:00 – 4:00 5.5
5:00 – 6:00 6
7:00 – 8:00 6.5
8:00 – 9:00 6
9:00 – 10:00 5.5
10:00 -11:00 5
11:00 – 12:00 3.5

All of these exercises were super-setted to speed up the pace & keep the heart rate up:

Exercise Weight Sets Reps
Dead Lifts 45 lb Barbell 3 15
Standing Lunges Body 3 15
Box Jumps w/ squat 8 lb db’s 3 20
Sit ups w/ fly’s 8 lb db’s 3 15
Side Planks Body 3 20

Mike did the same exact work out as me, but his weights were a lot higher, and his reps were a lot lower than mine. Today was a great start to a new tradition! I’m excited to see what kind of torture he’ll be putting me through next Wednesday!
