Saturday Session

Quick interval/abs session at PF today.

-3 plank/side plank supersets of 30s or more
-Decline bench medicine ball throws...first attempt at those. My lower back is sore from deadlifts yesterday, as is the one spot where I tweaked it, so couldn't go all out on those.

-Elliptical intervals for 10 min: (30s high intensity, 60s moderate...more or less). Seriously, try these if you haven't before. Jogging on the treadmill or leisurely pedaling the elliptical for 45 minutes is nothing compared to interval training. I turn the resistance up all the way and just go balls out for 30 seconds, then rest and repeat. Done in 10 minutes, legs swell up big time. Then 5 minutes on the treadmill (incline) walking to cool down.

Now outside for a nice walk while the weather is still nice. Too bad my iPod is in the shop.

Anybody else heard the 300 soundtrack, or at least remember any of the music from the movie? Very good for the gym. There is an instrumental by Nine Inch Nails called "Just Like You Imagined" which is pretty awesome for lifting/cardio. I'm gonna listen to that now to get it in my head.
