RWFit.com Workout: Thursday 10/4/12

Posted by eric on October 5, 2012

This has, unfortunately, be a more unstructured workout week than I would have liked, starting with a lack of options at the hotel and continuing through a compressed time schedule this week. So today's workout was a bit of a "catch up" to get in muscle groups I'd ignored earlier in the week.

Starting this weekend, I can get back into a better routine to hit everything in a more structured, focused manner.

RWFit.com Workout: Tuesday 10/3/12

Today was a day for one of my favorite workout types - the Deck of Cards workout. For those unfamiliar, this workout consists of assigning an exercise to each suit, then performing the designated number of reps of each suit based on the cards you draw. Face cards are 10, Ace is 11, and Jokers get there out special exercise.

Of course, making this about legs may have been a mistake.

No, tabatas aren't a new Mexican dish. It's an exercise format that consists of 20 seconds of effort followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated 8 times for a total of 4 minutes of exercise time.

Tonight I mixed some tabatas into my workout for a little variety.

RWFit.com Workout: Sunday 9/30/12

Today's workout had to be a little more creative than many I do. Let me set the stage a bit: I'm at a hotel, which in and of itself is not that unusual for me as I'm often on the road. The difference today? Well, first I had all three kids with me. Not necessarily a bad thing, since my oldest can watch the others, but the two boys really wanted to go swimming and we needed to meet the rest of my family for breakfast fairly early.

In addition, there was only one treadmill, an elliptical, and a stationary bike in the "fitness center". No weights, no mats, no medicine balls, nothing. So I had a bit of a challenge in front of me.

Here's what I did:

As I prepare to head out ot my Uncle's wedding in Iowa this weekend, I know I'll be challenged to do much exercising as I'll be spending a lot of time in the car and at functions. I don't have much time today since I need to get everyone ready to go (my wife can't go due to work training), but I want to get in something that will boost my heart rate and work my abs.

Here's what I did:

RWFit.com Workout: Wednesday 9/26/12

Posted by eric on September 27, 2012

Often times my workouts are a solitary affair - conducted in the middle of the work day at lunch at my house, or on the road in a hotel fitness center. Getting to share my time - with my wife or kids especially - is always a great change of pace.

And speaking of changes in pace, today's workout was a run with my 8 year old son, who rode his bike along with me and we chatted about his day, my day, and running over dead skunks. What could be better?

Two nights, two workouts. Here is the second of my hotel workouts on this trip - headed home tomorrow, so it is also my last. They can't all be winners...

Tonight was my first night at the hotel fitness center this week. It wasn't quite the setup I thought it was when I looked at the pictures, but it was certainly passable.

Time for a good shoulders and legs workout. I like to mix it up a bit with a variety of different exercises, but as usual need to keep the time fairly constrained. So there's no significant rest between sets or rounds.

RWFit.com Workout: Friday 9/21/12

Posted by eric on September 21, 2012

Yesterday's workout was designed to be fairly quick and cover a number of muscle groups. Today's workout is going to be more targeted as I want to be able to focus on some key areas that I can't work out so well while I'm on the road, like I've been for the 5 days prior to yesterday.

So for today, here's the workout:
