Count Down Workout

I am always looking for ways to spice up my gym time and last night I had fun doing a "Count Down" workout. It looked like this...

12 minutes on upright bike
10 minutes on Incline Trainer  (this machine KILLS me...always has!)
8 minutes on upright bike
6 minutes on Incline Trainer
4 minutes upright bike
2 minutes on Incline Trainer

I didn't start the 12 minutes on the upright bike until I was at my target heart rate. I finished in about 45 mins which included the time to change machines (they were next to each other) and hit that initial THR.

I cooled down with about 5 minutes on the treadmill.

And according to my HR monitor I burned about 700 calories!

I will definitely be doing this again!

I also bit the bullet Monday and drove to the sister gym in the next town to get in a Zumba class. I MISS ZUMBA. I will do this atleast once a week, but I hate the longer drive home at night!

  1. Great workout! I like cardio exercises because they are good for weight loss like nothing else! Sometimes I was experiencing lack of endurance during my cardio trainings, but Military Grade supplements helped me improve my results. I was pleasantly surprised when I first trained twice as long as I used to in the gym. Since then my shape was steadily improving. I would have never believed that a supplement can do that much, but now I know it from my own experience.
