So today I had the pleasure to hang with my girlfriend (as I do) over at the gym where we cranked out a workout from insanity but before we got into the nitty gritty parts we did a nice warmup with a nice chat.
The workout was pretty straight forward, it was built up into three circuits which was perfect because Laura had already been at the gym for half an hour when me and Tania rocked up and she had some business to attend to.
First out was 15 wood chops. Now, the thing is over at Lifetime Fitness they don’t always have a lot of medicine balls around so we ended up using kettle bells that had “sand” in them. This made the workout a little bit more interesting because the five first exercises we used the kettle bell and the sand kept on moving around and shifted the weight.

The movement number two was sumo squat jumps into and overhead press and although it was hot today the air conditioning was on but I was sweating like a p…lady that works hard 😉
So it was almost a relief when we got down on the mats to complete 15 jack knifes and 50 russian twist but this was nothing compare when we finally could let the “ball” go and give the shoulders some when we finished our 20 superman extension.
After completed the three sets we took a little longer break to recover our muscles before got back at it again. This time we switched the kettle bell out to a dumbbell just because I could not find the weight I wanted. I did end up with 20 lbs at the end when I realized 15 lbs was to light. Anyhow, second circuit started with 10 reverse lunge with a twist coming into a high knee with a twist. And I think it was Tania who mentioned that this movement was so hard and it is so true. But I guess the thing is, it is always the things you find hard that is your weak link and you have to get better at!

Back down on the mats we finished out 20 spiderman climbers, 50 bicycle crunches and 15 push ups before we finished out 1 minute on the bike with high resistance going as fast as we could.
They only have two bikes over at the “floor” at lifetime so we moved over closer to them so we could occupy them during the last and final set. With 10 single arm rows with pulling int the knee in between each rep we jumped back on the bike and cranked out 2 minutes medium resistant as fast as we could followed by 1 minute fast run/sprint.
I guess you get a lot more said during a lunch with your girlfriend compare to what you get during a workout with them because when Tania asked me a question I couldn’t answer as I had a enough of just trying to breath…lol
