HIIT with Puppy


Turns out working out with a puppy is challenging on rainy days when going for a run on the trails is just too messy. We stayed inside this morning and knocked out a quick HIIT circuit instead.

Lesson: Doing burpees with a puppy around is comical.

4min warm up and 16 rounds of 10/50 AMRAP:

Warmup (4min):

  • 10 Chaturanga dandassana
  • AMRAP Lunge, squat, kick combos

Workout (16min):

  • Burpees
  • Kettlebell swings
  • Roman twists
  • Single leg squats
  • Hanging leg raises

Chaarg Leg Madness   


Spotted this little body routine on Instagram. Looks like a smoker if the comments are any indication. 3 rounds seems about right.

This is a show? Cool.

Back Into It

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and it is mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out the whole arthritis thing when it comes to my ankle. It has truly become my Achilles Heel, of sorts. It turns out there isn’t too much that can be done for osteo-arthritis aside from controlling inflammation. The good news is that there is quite a lot that can be done for inflammation, long-term, aside from icing.

In my desperation to continue running, I figured I’d throw the kitchen sink at inflammation and cut back severely on sugar and carbs. It turns out that this works great! While I’ve been on a low-sugar, low-carb, no processed grains, no alcohol diet over the past month or so, I have been able to resume regular running and HIIT workouts. I’m super-excited! While I can’t get in the volume I used to, it is good to be back in the game and I’m hoping things progress so that I can up the intensity. Back in May I could hardly walk up stairs without (literally) crawling, so this progress has been amazing - and all thanks to changes in what I am eating.

Anyway, Thanks to Christa Stryker and her amazing 12minuteathlete app, I had a super-fun workout yesterday. If you haven’t checked out Christa’s site or her app, I highly recommend them. She makes workouts super-easy and her app even has an integrated timer, so there’s no fumbling to build a workout in your timer before you actually get to work out. Super-easy!

I’ve been out of commission of sorts due to some weirdness with my ankle. Thursday I see a podiatrist, which is exciting, but until then, I really need to come up with workouts that don’t put any impact on my ankle of metatarsals.

Lots of squats, pushups and pullups have been happening, but I got some ideas from Zuzka’s videos above for ways to change things up a bit.
