#WarmupWednesday: Prepping the Shoulders

Happy Wednesday All!

I previously posted my first #WarmupWednesday demonstrating how I warm-up for leg day. Shoulders is another muscle group I always warm-up before jumping into my working sets. I started doing a shoulder warm up after my shoulder injury two years ago. Plus, it gives you time to mentally prep to have a great workout. Check it out below!

#Workout Wednesday: Stair Intervals

Happy Wednesday All!

I figured I would switch it up and squeeze in a quick 30 minute interval training session (on the stairmaster stepmill) between my classes instead of going for a run. Here’s what you do:

5 minute warm-up (easy level)

2 minutes on, 3 minutes off (4 Rounds Total)

  • The 2 minute period is your working interval. Pick a moderately challenging level and climb some stairs! (I kick it up to level 15-18 to increase my heart beat.)
  • The 3 minute period is your rest time. I usually decrease my working level by ¬†3-5 levels depending on how I am feeling!
  • Repeat until you hit 25 minutes on the clock!

5 minute cool-down (easy level)

And that’s it!

What’s your favorite way to burn calories when you are short on time?
