What a day!! As you may have noticed, my first post on this blog is called George, and it’s about the horse that I fell in love with at college. But more than that, the post touches upon how much I love horses and riding, as it gives me a great sense of freedom and connection.
Not only is horseback riding a great way for me to relax and clear my head, but it’s also a Fantastic workout! Today I was at KB Equine with the manager, Katie, who taught me equi-yoga! Today I worked on using only my legs or core to find my “seat” and get more comfortable on the horse. It was so cool and I cant wait to try it again soon!
After my riding lesson I headed off to the gym! Little did I know today was leg day…so I had two tough leg workouts in a row-not bad, but definitely difficult! At the gym I worked pretty much all areas of my legs. I did some HIIT type exercises that I wasn’t used to, but I could feel the burn for sure!!
As always, if you have any questions or want help with a workout, please let me know!!!
Here’s what today’s workout looked like:
Box jumps: 4 sets of 10 jumps
Vertical jumps: 4 sets of 10
Step-ups (with weights): 10 reps each leg
Squats: 4 sets of 12
Good Mornings: 4 sets of 10- be sure to do these slow, focus of digging into your heels
Calf raises: 4 sets of 25
Hamstring/glute raises: 4 sets of 10
