So this week I have some really exciting news to share! Well, it is exciting to me, not sure how excited you’ll be about it but I’m going to share it anyway. 😉
This past Monday, I started the first day of a new strength training program trial that I was picked to be apart of! This could not have come at a more perfect timing as I was looking to step up my strength workouts since I will be in “off season” mode until I start marathon training.
A few weeks ago, right before the Syracuse Half, I was contacted by Jonathan Collins, creator of ShiftFit Performance Fitness Programs. He offers several different programs that are designed to improve your endurance, strength and physique.
He is working on a new program called ShiftFit Strong and asked me to be part of his trial group to test it out. After learning a bit more information I happily accepted. Though I have been pretty successful at creating my own workout routine and incorporating strength training (since it’s my first love), I was interested to see what someone else’s program would do and how it might challenge my body in ways that I haven’t.
For the mobility part, I plan to get my spine aligned by my “on call chiropractor” aka my husband and do a little DVRT work with the sandbag- it is great for improving mobility and range of motion especially through the thoracic spine and shoulders.
I am really excited to see what the rest of the program entails and how it improves my strength and endurance; both of which will be necessary foundations before I begin training for my Fall marathon!
I have also been getting in my ab work this April with the #RockYourCore Challenge!
My 4 year old is also really enjoying the challenge and even got some high knees in with me yesterday!
Phew! Told you I’ve been busy! I also came up with an old fashioned bodyweight workout that can be done anywhere- no equipment needed except an interval timer, which you can download an app for. Here is a list of 10 different interval training mobile apps in case you need some suggestions!
I wrote it as 40 second on/ 20 seconds off but you can change it depending on skill level/how you feel.
That about wraps it up for this week! Make sure to grab the badge and link up with us below if you have a workout, healthy recipe or fitness find to share and we will make sure to spread the inspiration around!
