I feel like I should at least mention the Super Bowl….my dad won THREE THOUSDAND dollars in his pool!! So I have to admit that was pretty cool and exciting. Another thing I’ll admit…I did not watch the game…AT ALL. Not even the half time show. My parents went to party and I partook in the oh-so addicting Sex and the City Marathon that was on E.
Sex and the City>Football
The whole rest of the day was spent doing homework. But at least I had this little one to keep me company…
[That face is SO distracting!]
I did fit in some other stuff though (soup making, laundry folding, pita restocking…lol!)! Including some more magazine reading on my study breaks…
And I happened to find that Women’s Health totally stole my idea for today’s post! Haha. Kidding of course. But what I had in mind just happen to be the topic of an article in the mag…
I LOVE ending workouts with a blast. That feeling that you’ve given your all right at the end is incredible. Whether its sprinting in from a run or busting out some tuck jumps at the end of a strength workout…nothing beats that one final heart pumping push.
And now that I read the article in Women’s Health…I have actual proof that ending a workout with a quick cardio blast is a GOOD thing! So I’m not crazy…lol! It not only revs your metabolism, but it challenges your body in a whole new way by shocking it with a turbo charged set of moves.
I almost always do some intense HIIT style moves at the end of my workouts…especially my strength workouts. It lets me get that final sweat in and makes me feel even more accomplished!
If you follow me on Daily Mile…you know my LOVE of burpees. I think they are the PERFECT full body move. Not only do they get your heart rate up, but they incorporate leg, arm, and shoulder strength.
They are my go-to move post workout. I came up with this little post workout blast to share with you all. It incorporates my favorite burpee variations and will certainly make you push that extra little bit at the end of a tough sweat sesh!
If you need any clarification on the moves…let me know!!
Hope you guys enjoy this! I definitely think ending your workout with some intensity adds a whole other dimension!
If anyone tries this out…let me know what you think!
And now a little tid bit from the day that made me smile…
I have been finding these notes ALL over school lately. Such a nice little surprise to see during a tough day.
Do you like to gradually cool down at the end of a workout or push hard till the end?
What’s your go-to workout recovery food?
Did you watch the Superbowl? Any big Superbowl pool wins?!
Have a great week lovelies!
