I am not feeling very witty or clever today so I am going to keep this post short and sweet…kind of like some people’s attention span during thier workouts.  You know the type, do a set, get a drink of water, think of the next exercise, think about last night’s premier of Conan, watch my client’s actually training and getting work done, then watch sports center on t.v. before starting thier next…oh wait, what was I doing again?

I know it’s rainy out but that is no reason to get lazy by skipping a workout or sitting around the gym pretending to workout.  Both are equally as lame as Justin Beiber live on broadway. 

Here is an idea great workout for a rainy day like today and don’t worry, snow is right around the corner.  As always begin by warming up by foamrolling,

5 Min Warmup

  • One-leg glute bridge                                               10/side
  • Lateral mini-band walk                                         10/side
  • Walking spiderman with overhead reach        5/side
  • Reverse lunge                                                           10/side
  • Lateral Lunge                                                              5/side
  • Jumprope                                                                    2 minutes

15 Min Metabolic Circuit

  • Side plank with weighted fly                                       10/side
  • Jump split squat (or bodyweight split squat)     10 reps (10/side)
  • Kettlebell swings                                                             10 reps
  • Yoga pushups                                                                   10 reps
  • Kettlebell suitcase deadlifts                                       10/side
  • Squat and press                                                               10 reps
  • Reaching plank                                                                 5/side

Complete the circuit and repeat 3 to 5 times resting 1:30 in between sets.  The first round may seem easy, the rest will not.  This is a great mindless workout to get you in hear and training hard with little to think about to kick the habit of standing around.

In other news, since my blog has grown over the months (much thanks to you all for reading and sharing my humble blog) I will be adding video to my posts in the very near future.  I am working hard on getting video of various exercises to help you guys learn while I am away.

Any suggestions on what my first video should be? (get your mind out of the gutter please, this is a family site)
