Workout Challenge

Workout Challenge

 

Spontaneous days are the best days.  I don’t know exactly why, there is just something about them that I just LOVE!  I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I am  aggressively a type A person so I live such a scheduled, ‘to the tee’ life, that spontaneity is rare so when it comes it is like AAAAHHHH hi.  Does anyone else love spontaneity as much as I do??

So my morning consisted of running down ~2 miles to the Ithaca Farmers Market.  And, when I say run down… I litttttraly (name the show?!) live on top of a mountain, so its more of a “hope my legs move forward fast enough and I don’t eat shit” kind of run.

(The run wasn’t spontaneous, that’s a weekly thing with one of my best friends– actually I LIVE for the Ithaca Farmers Market, it’s heaven)

If you are ever in the area, 10/10 recommend

 

Every week, I get the red bean balls (slang name, lmk if you know the real name because they have achieved status of being my favorite food in the world).

Pure heaven-sent-god-like-ness.

As we were walking back up (straight up.. ) the gorgeous gorge trail, we spotted a flat rock in the middle of the water-y area (see videos on IG because I am so stellar at describing things as you can tell).  We were in the middle of a conversation debating if we had time before she had work to go to the gym, so  jokingly at first, we were like “that would be fun to workout on”, and then me, being me, was like YEP LET’S DO IT, so we did! ( I love you for being my person, Heather– I know you read these 😉 )

ANDDDD VIOLA here is the spontaneous workout we ended up doing in the middle of a gorge.

At one point, a lady walking the trail AND I QUOTE “Wow, turned the corner and saw two fannies in the air!! Good Morning!” 

Workout goes like this: set a timer for 15 minutes and do as many rounds as possible.  Rest 1-2 minutes and then do the same thing with the second set of exercises.

NOTE: There are videos for both of these on my instagram @colbytriolo_youmakeyou I just can’t upload videos here a.t.m. erggggggg


the workout

SET 1: 10 burpees, 30 russian twists, 30 high knee foot taps, 5 incline pushups

SET 2: 15 squat jumps, 24 walking lunges, 30 high step ups, 20 ab bicycles each side


Get to it because YOU MAKE YOU 😉

xoxo,

Colby
