After a week of resting and taking it easy, today I made it back to the gym for a good sweaty workout. I used the Nike Fit Club app to guide my workout. This is a great app since it talks to you and keeps track of time for you. There is even a continuous countdown timer of how long you have left that is super motivating (atleast for me). Also it has a lot of different workouts based on what you are trying to accomplish (get lean, strength, etc.) and has beginner, intermediate, and advanced options.
I chose to do the “Drill Sargent” workout from the intermediate strength section. Although the app does do a warm up and a stretching cool down as apart of the workout, I started out on the elliptical for 5min. This helped to get my heart rate up a little but more importantly it helped wake me up a bit since I was super lazy this morning. For cool down I did the couple min of stretching that the app included but then added a few more of my own.
It felt good to get sweaty and to start working on my offseason goals. On the subject of goals… I worked on my post workout nutrition goal by having a whole wheat English muffin with almond butter and coconut shreds immediately after the workout. It was delicious and hit the spot.
What’d you do for your workout today?
