Break it Up
After a weekend full of pizza, bread and oil dipping, and ice cream, I wanted to start this week off on a bit of a healthier note.
So before training my morning client this morning, I headed to the gym to get in a 30 minute full body strength training workout. I did my go-to quickie full body routine, which I will post soon. (Not yet though, because it’s going up on Tuesday Trainer tomorrow!)
Then again after training, I headed back to the gym to get in 30 minutes of treadmill interval sprints.
Basically sprint>recover>sprint>recover. Simple and did the job of logging an intense cardio workout
I typically like to get my workout in all in one full swoop. I very rarely do part during one session and part in another. However, since I would be out and going back by my gym anyway, it worked out well.
Also, I could lie and say I chose to do weights first to ensure I had the energy and stamina to get through my workout with proper form (which is half true.) But really, my thought process was that if I did cardio first, I’d be a stinky sweat bomb in front of my client. Thus, cardio was done second
Throughout the morning, I was sipping on BCAA’s, and ate a couple dates with sunflower seed butter.
When I got home, I fixed up a real breakfast:
Oatmeal! This time I mixed in half a banana, raspberries, cinnamon, and 1 scoop of Jay Robb whey protein powder.
Time to go get ready for the other job. I’m ready to tack my work email inbox!!! (If I pretend to be enthusiastic maybe it’ll come true?? )
Do you ever split up your workout into different times of the day?
