I have slowly been building my cardio back up, aiming to run a 1/2 marathon with Alicia later this year. Since I pretty much do zero cardio outside of Just Dance and walking the dog, I started the year meeting ACSM recommendations at 150 minutes a week. Each week adding 20 minutes to my regimen. This week I'm up to 225 minutes. I don't run anymore so my cardio is usually airdyne, dancing, circuit training, and HIIT. I figure I'll work on building my cardio endurance first before I start hitting the pavement.
The first 8 weeks of the year I am focusing on cardio and monitoring my nutrition. However, I do aim for 2 days a week of weight training. Either heavy lifts or circuit training depending on my mood. My lift of choice is Deadlift and I love a solid Overhead Press set. My next phase I'll be moving into Strength and Hypertrophy, I can't wait. I love my lifts!
I am #bringingyogaback with the PrAna 12 day yoga challenge.
What is on your weekly fitness goal list?
Have a great week,
Health and Happiness,
