How is your weekend going?
Mine is off to a great start, especially because we got errands out of the way yesterday after work, and can now focus on cleaning and relaxing. (And him unloading the dishwasher. Hehe)
So I always love teaching fitness (duh!), but I also like doing my own thing too, so it’s been fun on my off days to design new workouts and have a blast. I sincerely love the looks the dudes give me when I bust out real pushups, heavy barbell back squats, and bosu tricep pushups…. so satisfying to know I am strong and can do that no problem. They may or may not be intimidated. Hah.
This weights workout is fun because it’s easy to remember and you get to work your entire body! Plus, it is BRAND new–and anything different or new can help you reach your fitness goals if that is what you’re after.
So, in the workout you do 10 reps of each exercise in the superset, take a quick break, and then do that superset again. Then you move to the next superset. (You could also do the whole workout 1 time (each superset once) and then go back and do it all over again.)
Remember, a superset is when you take 1 exercise and follow it with another exercise (usually in the same muscle group) without any breaks.
I worked up quite a sweat and worked every muscle group to fatigue. It felt awesome!
“Give a 10” Weights Workout
*Notes: Choose a weight for each exercise that is tough by the 9th and 10th reps, but that you can still do while maintaining good form.
Enjoy your workout! It burns so good.
And because I love nerdy material, here is some good info on sports nutrition:
Sports nutrition is the study and practice of both the diet and nutrition in conjunction with athletic performance.
Sports nutrition regards both the type and the quantity of fluid and food digested by an athlete. Sports nutrition tends to deal with nutrients in the shape of vitamins and minerals as well as supplements, which come in the form of organic substances such as carbs, proteins and fats.
Sports nutrition is considered in endurance sports, such as football, cycling, swimming and many other.
Diet has been a part of sports training for centuries now, even the Romans and Ancient Greeks took it on board when they introduced the Olympic games. All of the athletes involved had their own special regime for great performance. This particular procedure included both diet and nutrition.
Sports nutrition has however changed dramatically since then and has in turn evolved dramatically.
Scientists and nutritionists are forever researching more and more about this interesting subject. Research previously conducted shows that the coupling of exercise with a balanced and healthy diet works to both produce and maintain a body that is physically fit.
This in turn will prevent the body from becoming ill. Sports nutrition and a healthy lifestyle will also aid in the prevention of chronic illnesses such as non-insulin-dependent diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity, mental health, stroke, colon cancers and back injuries.
All of the above can be caused by a poor diet and an unhealthy lifestyle. If you wish to cut down on a certain bad habits, take it one step at a time in order to rebuild your body back to a healthy state. Amen!
Cool eh? I loved taking sports nutrition classes during my undergrad. It is a whole different ball game than just ‘normal’ nutrition for a healthy adult, that is for sure!
Have a LOVELY weekend my friends!!
What workout did YOU enjoy this past week?? Which exercises do YOU want to see in a workout?? Have YOU studied sports nutrition at all??
