Work it. Work it Good.

Yesterday was supposed to be a 3 mile running day for my schedule, but my legs were feeling pretty gross so I decided to make it a cross training day.  I’ll have to do my 3 miles either today or Friday.

What did I do for my cross training?

-A 30 minute yoga class from DoYogaWithMe (Free Yoga Classes online!)
This is the exact class I did:
Hips, Hamstrings, and Back

Core exercises:
30 second side planks (the following picture is not me, although I’ve been told that I look good in red.)

45 second forearm plank  (also not me)
60 seconds bridge

– Glute activation exercises:

25 Donkey kicks (each leg)

30 clam shells with a resistance band (each leg)

25 leg lifts with resistance band (each leg)

– Stretches:
Quadriceps/Hip Flexor stretch
Adductor Stretch

– Upper Body Exercises:
25 Pushups
25 Dumbbell Kickbacks
25 Dumbbell Lateral Raises

Foam rolling, lacrosse ball rolling


What exercises do you do for cross training that is not gym related?

  1. you weren’t entirely specific. I hope the last 2 sets of faceless women weren’t you, either…
    That is a really good circuit! Thanks for the yoga link, too. I’m always looking for cheap exercise options.
