Hey Hey Hey!
How’s everyone? We’re doing well over here. It was so warm today…I loved getting out with Ella in the afternoon. This morning I got in a quick workout after my clients. Yesterday I did a full back and bicep workout (pull downs, t-bar row, rows, cable pull downs, dumbbell row, preacher curls and cable curls-3 sets of each) that I was definitely feeling. Today I did more of a fast HIIT workout.
I started with a 4 minute tabata interval session which went like this:
sets 1&2- jump rope
7&8-wide high knees
Then I did a 12 minute HIIT session. 12 rounds of 50 second intervals with 10 second rest:
-plyo push-ups on Smith machine bar
-deep sump squat and press using a 12lb medicine ball
-bench dips (<–50 seconds of these were TOUGH for me!)
–roll-up/v-up combo holding the medicine ball
cool down and stretch.
All while wearing my new favorite gym accessory…
I received these on Saturday and was SO stoked to try them out while I took power yoga on Sunday! You see, I never, ever, ever, ever, ever can ever pull of wearing headbands. My head is like shaped a way where they ALWAYS ride up my head and I have all these weird hairs fluffing out my my ears and it’s just a mess. I don’t think I’ve ever worked out wearing a headband in my life because they are too annoying. When I do wear headbands, I am adjusting them constantly.
Given my history I was skeptical whether or not the Sparkly Soul headbands would work for my little head. Let me tell you something.
These. Headbands. Rule.
I had Michael snap this when I got home on Sunday. My hair is a little messy but I never adjusted the headband once during or after class!
Here’s the pink one after today’s workout:
They even stay put while I wrangle my 8 1/2 month old…
Here’s the best part….Sparkly Soul will send one of my readers two headbands of their choice!
If you win you will receive one thin and one thick headband in the colors you choose.
