Monday’s are my Sundays: I get to lounge around, run a few errands, and hit the gym midday to avoid crowds.
At least I try to hit the gym midday to avoid crowds.
Instead of hitting the gym midday to avoid crowds this past “my Sunday” Monday, I decided it was time to bake that pumpkin bread I had planned on baking last October.
I like to call this technique “productive procrastination”: I may of procrastinated on working out, but I still baked pumpkin bread, cheesecake brownies (from scratch), made sloppy joes, and several chicken breast.
I haven’t cooked that much since our July 4th party back in 2012.
By the time I was done “productively procrastinating” (come on people, help me catch this on), it was prime-crowded time for the gym. So I looked through my Spartan WOD emails and stumbled across one I could do at home. Granted I was supposed to add a couple miles worth of jogging, but it was dark outside and just wasn’t safe in my quiet, small town, suburban neighborhood.
Below is this weeks recommend WOD:
10 lunges (I did five each leg)
10 seated dips
10 mountain climbers
The email said to perform this set 1-10 times depending on skill level. I did the first set as a warm-up. For the main set I used a 20 pound dumbbell with my lunges and squats. I held the dumbbell over my head during the lunges, and centered it below my hips during my squats.
I liked the routine because the burpees are in the beginning, and once those were done, each set went by fairly quickly. However, I somehow figured I needed to pluck my eyebrows in the middle of set five. This is one of the risk you take when opting to workout at home. It was then I decided I needed to finish that set and call it quits for the night.
So there you have it; an easy at home workout for your “productively procrastination” days.
Til next time friends!
