Wow, I’m loving these 12-minute athlete workouts! But I am making one fundamental rooky mistake. I’m not stretching afterwards. I left all that lactic acid build up yesterday morning, and even more so this morning. You know what they say, the first day never hurts as bad as the second.
I think I’ve been spoilt with all the yoga exercises that I take for granted because you stretch throughout your practice. But when it comes to cross and functional training, even if it is only for 12 minutes, you’ve got to stretch!
Today’s workout punished those tight inner thighs, and I definitely won’t forget to stretch again…
Today’s 12-minute workout consisted of 18 sets of 30 seconds each, with 10 second rests in between.
Timer setting: 18 x :10 x :30
:30 Triceps Push Ups
:30 Kettlebell Swings
:30 Kettlebell Front Squats
:30 High Knees
:30 Mountain Climbers
Complete each round 3 times.
You can substitute kettlebells for weights during the swings and a medicine ball during the squats.
And don’t forget to strectch!
