Strength/Cardio Circuit

“I get so sweaty doing this workout; I love it! I usually do this in the gym, so I’m naming the machines I use, but of course most could be done with just a pair of dumbbells if that’s what you’ve got. I do 30 seconds at each spot and I use an interval timer (app on my phone) so I don’t have to keep looking at my watch. I move to the next thing every time it dings. After the second time through I get a 1-minute ‘break’ and grab some water. Do circuit 4 times and follow up with a 3-4 mile run.  The below example focuses on triceps and biceps, but you can customize it to any muscle groups you want.”
Jenni, another mother runner

  1. As for evening weddings, formal wedding attire is usually the required dress code, but that still depends on whether the wedding is black-tie optional or strictly black tie. If the event is just black-tie optional, you can wear a dark suit or a cocktail dress.

  2. May I simply say what a relief to find someone who really understands what they’re talking about
    over the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of
    the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular because you definitely
    possess the gift.

    Aerobic exercise (also known as cardio) is physical exercise of relatively low intensity that depends primarily on the aerobic energy-generating process.Aerobic exercise and fitness can be contrasted with anaerobic exercise, of which strength training and short-distance running are the most salient examples. The two types of exercise differ by the duration and intensity of muscular contractions involved, as well as by how energy is generated within the muscle.`
