Happy Hump Day!
I know I'm weird, but I love Wednesdays! I get to go into work a little later on Wednesday morning so it gives me time to fit in a workout and enjoy a big bowl of oats while catching up on blogging or watching some good 'ol HGTV. It's my ideal morning, so I try to relish it each week.
This morning's workout was a goody. I chose two of my favorite workout tools........ a stability ball and a medicine ball and got to work.
Before I started the strength portion of my workout, I worked up a good sweat on the treadmill. If you don't have a treadmill at home, a few laps around the block always does the trick. Running still makes me pretty nauseous (baby girl doesn't like the continuous bouncing), so I went with a high incline walk instead. We pounded out 35 minutes at 3.9mph with a 6% incline to really work the legs and glutes. If you are a runner, feel free to up your speed to a nice jog. Don't forget to set your treadmill to at least a 1% incline. At 0%, most treadmills are actually at a slight decline!
After my treadmill session, it was on to strength work. Like I always say, you don't need an entire gym to get in a great workout. These two little beauties did the trick just perfectly!
I'm off to the studio now. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
