We had a snow day yesterday in St. Louis. 12 inches of snow will shut down all the St. Louis schools, but I’m not complaining because that means my spring break was extended for a day! I slept in (til 6:00 am), drank coffee, ate breakfast, read blogs, then headed to the gym to meet Diana. We ended up doing this quads & calves workout, and baby oh baby we were feeling the burn! Diana got an action shot of me doing long jumps.
I always get comments on the fact that I smile during workouts. What can I say? Exercise makes me happy! Plus, working out with friends or family is the best thing ever.
Speaking of workouts, itz been way too long since I’ve shared one with ya! I’ve already mentioned how I get super antsy just laying out by the pool, so my brother Justin suggested we work out poolside. You think I was game? Of course! I guess Justin and I have a thing for workout out while on vacation. Remember the Up the Ladder Beach Workout? Yeah, that was in Mexico. Here’s our Arizona workout:
We started with 33 push-ups (I did mine on my knees).
Then did 33 squats.
And ended with 33 sit-ups (well, I did crunches).
Oh, and then we repeated this # 99 WORKOUT three times total. That’s 99 reps of each exercise. You better believe it was tough with no rest in between!
The great thing about this workout is that it can really be done by anyone (modify as needed), anywhere (no equipment required), and anytime (on vacation? sure!).
Do you smile during workouts? I can’t seem to help it! Do you workout with friends or family? How about on vacation?
