I've been working this week to get back into the gym with my daughter Hannah. This is something of a switch. Hannah is a dancer and a gymnast while I am a swimmer and a triathlete. We spent a lot of time earlier in the year working out together to help Hannah improve in gymnastics, but because of school and work pressures, we haven't been working out together as much lately. Hannah had to put more focus on her schoolwork and on ballet while I decided to double-down on swimming.
Here was Saturday morning's workout. We did a longish warm-up, followed by 3 x three super-sets.
-- 3 x Sunrise Salute
-- General Stretching
-- 10 x body-weight squats
-- 10 x jumping jacks
-- 10 x push-ups
Super-Set 1 (x 3):
-- Military Press (10 reps)
-- 10 x Burpees (jump!)
-- 12 x Tuck-Ups
Super-Set 2 (x 3):
-- Weight-Assisted Dips (10 reps)
-- Dumbbell Bent-Over Rows (10 reps)
-- Dumbbell Lower Back Extensions (12 reps)
Super-Set 3 (x 3):
-- Goblet Squats (12 reps)
-- Dumbbell Bicep Curls (10 reps, 10 reps, 12 reps)
-- Russian Twists (12 reps)
Then we ran.
Hannah and I put in 8/10 mile together, right at an 11:00 pace. Then I dropped her at home and put in another 3 miles at 9:22/mile average. That wasn't fast, but it was a good exercise in running tired, which is a core skill for triathletes.
