Today’s workout nearly killed me! And I totally mean it! Here is what happened: I did my morning workout routine for about one hour and after that I went out hiking. I did my running part yesterday, so today I just hiked fast for a little over one hour. However, it was getting hot by the time I got back home, therefore the heat from the sun add a little extra something… that made me sweat a lot! In the evening, I attended 2 karate classes (1 hour each). During the second class I wanted to bend down and stretch, when I felt a pop in the upper part of my leg….OOPS! Yes, I pulled my muscle – just a little I hope. Then I realized that I was already on my 4th hour of working out today. And I was still in pain from yesterday. I planned on doing some kicking tomorrow but most likely I will have to take it easy. Here is a short kicking tutorial video. If you want to follow some of my workouts, there are some basic instructions. I hope you’ll find it useful 🙂
Here is some of my today’s routine. It’s a very good combination of cardio & resistance. Try it; do it at your own pace and if it’s really difficult for you, try do 4 rounds.
1. Jump rope (fast!!!) – 1 min
2. Mountain climbers – 30 sec
3. Power jump squats ( little jumps-squats with weights; I had 15 LBs) – 1 min
~ REPEAT 6 times ~
That should be enough 🙂
