Most of the U.S. is experiencing extremely cold weather right now. Here in Charlotte the temperatures dropped down to 10 degrees last night and we barely broke 30 today.
I get that these may be balmy temps for some of you…but not for my Georgia blood. This weather makes me move my workouts indoors to the gym or the yoga studio. And today I have a great gym workout to share with you.
Post-holidays I find that most of my clients just need to move and sweat so we’ve been focusing on cardio-intensive workouts with bodyweight/lightweight strength intervals. My go-to has been either treadmill or row sprints mixed in with high-rep bodyweight/kettlebell/lightweight movements.
This rowing workout has been a winner with my clients this week.
It’s a really easy workout format that alternates 500 meter rows with 30 reps of various simple (but tough!) movements. You end up rowing 2,000 meter total (I like to equate that to about a mile on the treadmill) and doing 150 reps of various exercises. My clients finished somewhere in the 20-25ish minute range. If you don’t have access to a rower, sub in 400 meter runs (0.25 miles).
HAPPY SWEATING! 🙂
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post…I have some amazing “Friday Favorites” coming at you!
