Fast, Effective, & Fun – Workout Wednesday

Hey guy! It’s once again Wednesday and time for another new workout. Hump Days are always a little rough and fitting in a long workout just isn’t always possible for my schedule (or yours!). So today’s workout is centered around my favorite and most effective piece of cardio equipment, the rower! The rower is scary for a lot of people because they just aren’t sure how to use it. Or for many of us, five minutes on the rower and we’re pooped! I understand both thoughts but I want you to break out of your comfort zone and find the rower next time you’re at the gym. For a little form help check out this awesome video WaterRower featuring the amazing Jay Blahnik and Josh Crosby to help perfect your technique.

Now that you have a better idea of how to row more efficiently and effectively take this workout for a spin.

The rower gives you a great full body workout but rest is needed to work hard again during the next round. Use the strength exercises to slow down a bit and recover just enough to push your limits again! Set a goal for yourself each round to row the 250 meters faster than the last round. From warm-up to cool-down this workout should take 35-45 minutes. Good luck!

Fitness Fashion – The Perfect Booty Leggings by Lucy

A few months back I told you all about Lucy Fitness clothing. Since that post I’ve been loving all my new gear: tank tops, bras, headbands, and capri’s. Today I want to tell you about their leggings, in particular the Perfect Booty Leggings. They are awesome and official on my recommendation list.

The friendly people over at Lucy’s in the Quarry gave me a pair of the Perfect Booty Leggings. After a couple months of wearing them for workouts, errands, and lounging, I’m happy to share that they are great for everything! The leggings are lined with a power mesh fabric that adds a little squeeze to the booty and thighs. The power mesh helps give the booty a nice little lift while highlighting toned quads and hamstrings. Take a look at the leggings. The purple dashes show you where the power mesh helps to hug you.

Head on over to Lucy or lucy.com and find the right pair for you. Remember, fitness professionals get a 25% discount in stores. Just let them know you teach or train and they’ll take care of you from there. If you’re not a fitness professional I’ve got you covered with a 15% discount code.

New Year, New Cycle Playlist

Happy Fitness Friday!!

I taught my first cycle class of the New Year yesterday and the class killed it! The 50 minute cycle class resulted in sweat, smiles, and a little bit of jello leg syndrome ;-). One thing I love about creating cycle playlists is that they can easily transfer to any workout I do. Check out yesterdays cycle playlist. And if you won’t use it for cycle try these jams for running, rowing, lifting, or whatever upbeat activities your big heart desires!

If you’re loving the list, shoot me an e-mail for the workout and I’m happy to share. Have a phenomenal Friday and a wonderful weekend! Cheers!
