More ADD Workouts

Hey! So glad ya’ll liked the monkey cake recipe!!!!!!! We did too apparently, because yesterday there were 12 slices and today there are 2! hahaha You just can’t go wrong with brown sugar+cinnamon!!!! 😀

So, if you remember, last week I shared my all-over-the-place cardio workout. Well, it seems that I like to mix it up with my strength workouts as well! Ya’ll know that I love a good circuit workout, and I’ve recently found a new one that’s AWESOME! Its a good total body workout that keeps my ADD brain happy!

Total Body Circuit

Set 1

  • 25 squats
  • 15 pushups
  • 50 jumping jacks

Repeat 3 times

Set 2

  • 12 burpees
  • 12 alt. lunges each side
  • 20 lying led lifts

Repeat 3 times

Set 3

  • 2 minute run
  • 1 minute plank

Repeat 3 times

And there ya have it! This takes me anywhere from 20 to 25 minutes. Usually I warm up for about 5 minutes on the elliptical or treadmill, so in the end, I have a 30 minute strength workout that keeps me from getting bored!!! Do you have any go-to workouts? 

The funniest thing happened to me the other day as I was coming home from the gym. See, our apartment building has two sets of gates that can only be opened by key or if someone in the building buzzes you in. I got the outside gate to open with the key, but for some reason, the inside gate would not open. And the doorman was out for lunch, so he couldn’t let me in. Which means that I couldn’t actually get to the apartment. I was looking at this:

See that little thing that looks like two light switches? The top ones open this gate, and the bottom opens the outside gate. Just beyond that, are the stairs and the elevator. Wanna know how I got in? I used a broom and hit the top switch with the handle. Oh yeah. I broke in to my own building. I actually tried to get an action pic of me opening the door, but I didn’t set the camera in the right position, so all I got was a pic of the wall. Niiiice. Anyway, by the time I actually got in the apartment, I was laughing that this sort of thing only ever happens to me! 😀

Well, I had better get started on my actual school work………hope you have an awesome day!

    I love workouts like that! I’m always all over the place in the gym. It makes time fly by and gets up the sweat.

    I totally have workout ADD. I am always all over the machines. I can’t stand when someone just sits on one so they can use it like 5 times in a row while I’m waiting to use it once.

    ADD workouts? I love it! I have a really hard time committing to strength training because I am so horribly ADHD.
