Total Body Superset Workout

My favorite co-worker, Janny, arrived at my house shortly after 5:30 this morning to do a bootcamp style workout with me. I love the mornings when Janny comes over to workout because having company makes the time go by extra quick (& it forces me to actually get my sleepy butt out of bed). Within 45 minutes, our workout was done and we were both feeling more energetic and ready to tackle our workday…except, the sun still wasn’t up, so I totally could have gone right back to bed…but whatever, that’s not the point of this blog post.

Today’s workout was a combination of supersets. Supersetting requires you to do 2 exercises, one right after another, with no rest in between. I love supersets because I don’t have time to get bored & my heart rate stays higher throughout the entire workout, which results in a faster metabolism throughout the day. Holla!

To complete this workout, do 2 exercises back to back (without rest) & then take a breather for about 15-30 seconds before repeating the same 2 exercises twice, for a total of 3 rounds. So for example, you would do 15 squat to presses immediately followed by 20 bicep curls, then you would rest for a few seconds before doing those same 2 exercises again. Once you’ve done 3 rounds of those 2 exercises, move onto burpees and upright rows. Make sense? Probably not. I totally understand if you’re about to minimize out of this window & go get a cupcake instead.

I really enjoyed this workout and will probably attempt it again soon (after my hamstrings recover from those dead lifts).

Now, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my best friend and former roommate, Stacie.

Stacie recently moved to S. Florida for work, but she’s back in town and will be staying with me for the next 2 nights. I miss my gal pal like crazy and I am so excited to catch up with her in person this week!

Stacie is a fitness freak, so I’m hoping we get to squeeze in a run together while she’s here…but that is really contingent on our wine consumption. Priorities.

Goodnight, friends!
