Saturday "make yourself stronger than your excuses"

Hi!
Ever have those lazy Saturday mornings where you want to stay in your cozy pajamas and lounge on the couch? That happened to me today, and my main motivation for getting up was to try my two new coffee flavors I bought last night! I do not enjoy taking rest days because honestly I just love working out and moving, but today was more of an active rest day at the gym. Rest days are for recovery and growing those muscles! Even when your prepping, it is important to take an easy day in the gym and listen to your body! 

Workout: (4 rounds)
-Reverse alternating lunge using Olympic bar with 15 lb added to each side

Circuit:
-Ride bike for .5 miles at level 10
-50 skips with jump rope
-50 crunches

-Ride bike for .5 miles at level 10
-100 jump rope
-50 crunches

-Ride bike for .5 mile at level 10
-150 jump rope
-50 crunches

-Ride bike for .5 miles at level 10
-200 jump rope
-50 crunches 

Abs:
-Regular plank hold for 3 minutes
-Side plank hold for 1.5 minutes on each side 
-Any type of plank (regular, on hands, alternating forearm to hand, side, etc) for 3 minutes

Look at the temptation! 

Who needs chocolate when you have broccoli and hot sauce!
