Today’s workout is all about the lower body! I used dumbbells and a barbell for this workout, but all exercises can be performed with body weight or dumbbells. Select whatever is going to challenge you the most!
Even though this was a non-plyometric workout I was dripping with sweat and breathing heavy from the challenge of the workout. I followed it up with an easy paced 1 mile run on the treadmill.
Now I am cooking a healthy dinner (which will double as my lunch for tomorrow). Tonight’s menu is baked balsamic chicken and mashed sweet potatoes. I have never made mashed potatoes before, so I am excited to see how they come out. I will share the recipes so check back for that. 🙂
