02/02/2017 Cross Training, Lighter=Stronger

Mountain Climbers
Today's cross training started with 10 minutes of jump rope.  I then did 3 rounds of the 10 exercises below, minimal rest only between rounds.  I am now down almost 14 lbs. from exactly a month ago.  It's funny, when you couple the loss of a significant amount of weight and the increase in a little strength, it can be dramatic how much stronger you feel.  I feel a lot stronger in only a month.  Before I started eating better and working out/running consistently again, it felt like a thousand miles away, being strong that is.  It is true what most trainers and books will tell you.  You can see real results in only a few weeks.  Here is the workout:

5 pull ups
20 bird dogs
2 min farmer's walk
20 squats
15 dips
2X20 sec. supermans
10 box jumps, 30 in. high
40 mountain climbers (video above)
20 side lunges (10 each side)
1 min. plank

The workout, including jump rope, took me 43 minutes total.  Later today, I am going to try and jog a 4 miler for recovery miles.
