What I Did: Recovery Weights

Still pretty sore and stiff from my Tabata workout so I thought I'd use the total gym in my living room and add a little cardio punch to it. Here's what I did;

Warm up:  Found another morning stretch routine about 5 min long here. Normally I don't do stretches before hand unless it's dynamic but I was in need of this

WORKOUT: All exercises on the total gym (other than cardio and core) Jumpin jacks for 30 seconds between each exercise. Sometimes I did squat jacks to heat it up, one round of star jacks...then I got lazy and went back to jumping jacks
Pull up
Seated row
Chest press
Shoulder press
Rear dealt fly
Anterior shoulder raise
Biceps seated
Biceps lying down
Overhead roll ups (with 10lb wt) x 20
Pilates leg hugs with 20 leg raises
Mountain climbers 30 sec
Plank 30 sec

Total Time:30 min (oh 35 including warm up video)
HR: around 150-160 at the end
Sweat'o'Metre: Surprising, I actually got more than damp, got some face trickles going on
Burn'o'Metre: meh, the biceps burned the most cause I did them back to back and my biceps are weak...not a super burn but a good workout for an off day/recovery day
It looks like I'm posing but I'm trying to show the drop of
sweat on my temple haha!
