Happy Valentine’s Day. To celebrate your heart and get that organ working we have a great workout for you. Just remember these workouts are always better with friends at your back. Stop by sometime and give an Ironside class a try!
If you have access to a track, take two EASY PEASY laps to warm up the legs (after thoroughly stretching them before…don’t just take off cold…ask me how I know!)
Rest 1-2 minutes.
Set a timer for 20-25 minutes…it’s been a long week and I get that we are all kinda tired. I am after this one!!!
When you are good and loose, you will run the straights at 3/4 speed and jog/walk the curves. Folks, it can literally be a jog or a walk…what matters here is your ability to turn it on when you need to, calm back down, then turn it back on.
Repeat straights/curves in this way until your timer dings. Don’t cheat yourself…go hard. If you feel winded or lightheaded then relax for a few minutes…BE SMART!!!
***If you do not have access to a track, but have access to a treadmill: Jog for 2-3 minutes to get the machine going and then increase the incline by 2 degrees. Jog for 2 minutes. Increase the incline by another 2 degrees.
Continue in this way until you can no longer keep up (please be careful and don’t fall off the back of the treadmill), you run out of incline (you went all the way up to 30+ degrees you ANIMAL!!!), or your timer dings at 25 minutes.***
