"Get in A Quickie"
Mr. Rico and I complement each other well. I am good about starting something and he is better at finishing it. The other night we were crunched for time so we decided to do a twenty minute WOD at home aka a quickie. My husband got out his handy dandy dry erase marker and started to plan our “workout of the day.” As you can see he wrote the plan on our mirror. He does this often by the way and sometimes I look at the mirror in our bathroom and think I am in the Beautiful Minds movie…got to love him! It does not take much space or equipment to get an effective workout by the way, especially if you do it Con Ganas (with desire)!
The WOD consisted of 5 Pull Ups, 7 Thrusters and 10 Push Ups (they were decline by the way for added oomph!)
We set our phone timer for 20 minutes and repeated the work out without a rest until the 20 minutes were up. I believe we did about 6 to 7 cycles – we lost count after a while. They were the longest 20 minutes ever and they were killer.
We live in a small one bedroom apartment so space is not an issue. As for exercise equipment and furniture used:
· A pull up bar which is easy to set up and remove
· A set of dumbbells – pick a good weight that is challenging
· Workout gloves – nothing fancy is needed. We use cheap leather gardening gloves with the fingers cut off
· Ottoman – which was used for propping up our feet during the decline push ups
So there you have it. 20 minutes of fun with the one you love.
These power workouts are great for endurance and stamina by the way J!
Suffering together through a workout and encouraging one another strengthens your relationship too.
Grab your mate and get in a quickie!
