01/26/2017 My birthday, workout #1

Yep, it's my birthday.  Awesome, it's a fun day with all the well wishes.  I do enjoy the day, even though I'm old because my kids give me cards, little gifts, etc.  Maura always makes it a special day whether we have big plans or smaller ones.  

My plans for the day, workout wise, are two fold.  I just finished up my second cross training session this week, as planned.  Also, I am going to get in a 4-5 mile run later.  I just spent 32 minutes on the following set:

5 minutes jump rope then twice through the following--

15 push ups
20 jumping jacks
20 bird dogs (video here)
farmer's walk, 38 lbs each side
1 min. side plank
20 lunges
2, 20 sec. supermans (video here)
7 pull ups
20 squats
30 mtn. climbers

5 minutes jump rope

If you notice, I added a couple new exercises that aren't typically in my routine.  I always like to change it up a bit so I don't get bored.  Also, I specifically chose these exercises to stretch out the body, specifically the core areas.  If you watch the video on the superman exercise, the Dr. actually talks about this a bit, so I was happy to be on the same page as he, even before I watched it.  People are typically tight through the mid section, even if healthy, simply due to daily routines.  The superman, bird dog, and other exercises can help alleviate that tightness.
