Let me take you Behind the Scenes of one of my personal workouts.

With today being that in between day that falls between Good Friday and Easter Sunday it is a time of quiet reflection for me.  While at the gym I realized that one of the greatest gifts God has given me is my Health and Wellness. It’s easy for many of us to forget the good and focus on the bad. Yes there are times my knees are dodgy, my lower back aches, my flexibility is less than what I would like or finishing a longer run is harder than it used to be, but the truth is that I am still extremely grateful for what I can do. Keeping a healthy perspective is key, its accepting the not so good with the great! I am grateful and content with my body and so In keeping with this theme,  I thought that I would share one day of my 3-2-1 workout, the program that helps me to Keep the Edge over age!

If your ready to come behind the scenes with my workout, here it is!

The order of the 3-2-1 workout is:

  1. Cardio 1 
  2. Circuit A
  3. Cardio 2
  4. Circuit B
  5. Cardio 3
  6. Core

I take 2-minute breaks between the cardio and circuits and only 1 minute between each set of the circuit (I do 3 sets).

Cardio 1:  10 minutes

  • Warmup walk on the treadmill at 4.2  for 2 minutes
  • Jog for 8 minutes at 5.5

Circuit A:

  • 10 Sprint intervals- treadmill speed at 9.0 on .5 incline
