Just got back from the gym. I love mid-afternoon workouts, they are my fave!
So I started this new workout and I love it! Its a good change of pace from my last one and I was certainly tired by the end of it.
She has an interesting way of warming up that essentially means you jump around for 10 minutes to warm up. It shocks your body into getting into gear. You do head to toe squats, jumping jacks, 1 leg jumps, lunges... and so on. I think it warms my body up much better than the standard 5-10 minutes on the bike. and its more fun. I'm sure I looked a little funny jumping around at the gym, but whatever.
Also, my favorite part of going to the gym, is coming home and making a protein smoothie. For those of you that don't know, after you workout, especially after resistance training, you need protein.
