My body just didn’t feel great today so I made a last minute decision to trash my normal Friday core-centric workout for one focused on challenging cardio instead. After doing my one set of max push ups I climbed onto the stair climber for a tough 20 minutes where I kept a step per second pace or greater for most of the time. I finished with 10 minutes on the cross trainer at a level that had a caloric burn in the same ballpark as running. My hope hope was the cardio would help burn out whatever remaining feelings of blah that still reside in my body.
5 minutes cardio/stretching
55 push ups
20 minutes stairclimber – 1133 steps
10 minutes cross trainer – 125 calories burned
