So, the question of the day is am I a Cardio junkie or a Strength junkie?
Here’s the thing.
I know strength training is important. I know plenty of exercises to do since we did it when I was on the swim team. But I won’t do it on my own. No motivation there. The only way this girl is strength training is if I have a partner or if I’m in BodyPump. Love me some BodyPump. It’s great for me since it has good music, easy choreography, and motivation since I totally want to lift more than the instructor. It doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for me.
So cardio. I could do cardio ALL DAY LONG! I love it. Swimming is cardio, running is cardio, Combat, Attack, Step, everything! I don’t feel like I need a buddy to jump in the pool or head out for a run, I just do it. And it’s so relaxing for me. Wearing myself out in Combat is such a stress relief. Getting my butt kicked in Attack is so satisfying. Finishing a 16 mile run? I feel awesome. I try to balance by making sure I get to Body Pump as often as I can and doing pushups and planks after runs.
Last cooking of the week!
