Perhaps even more importantly, I got a chance to really work out with Christy and push her pretty hard. You could say perhaps that it was a growth opportunity for our marriage (in a good way)!
For today's resistance training, I had us do lower body plyometrics:
In-to-Out Squat Jumps. Kind of like Squat Split Jumps, but with two step platforms. Start between them in a squat, then jump, landing with feet on the platforms, then jump back down, landing with your feet on the floor in a squat. 1x10, 1x12
Split Squat Jump - 1x10, 1x12. Here's a quick video of what it looks like, though I didn't do it as a cardio-type exercise (good idea, though!):
Plank Knee Raises - 1x10, 1x12. Get in push-up position and bring your right knee to your elbow, then back to push-up position. Repeat as necessary. Switch and do the left leg
Long-stride lunge - Back and forth across the gym
Wall Sit - 1x30sec, 1x40sec
Cardio was 35min. I walked for 3min@3mph, then ran for 20min@6mph (2 miles!), walked 4min@3mph, then ran for 5min@6mph.
I'm pretty worn out!
