My Gym Workout – Heart Rate Cardio Exercise

FitFam Tuesday! 

Today’s workout consisted of some cardio and ended with some squats for my monthly squat challenge. I did not write the exact cardio workout, but instead gave you what kind of cardio workout I did and you can choose how you would like to go about doing the exercise as far using whatever mode you would like (bike, treadmill, free run, elliptical, etc) .

 

I did not do a warm up like I would normally do, which I paid for when I did my squats at the end and my hip flexors were very tight but I pulled through and lesson learned. 

 

Cardio workout:

 
  • I did 45 minutes of steady-state cardio at 65%-75% of my heart rate. 

At 65% my heart rate should be around: 127 bpm

At 75% my heart rate should be around: 147 bpm  

 

Both of these I had to calculate and neither one of these will be the same for everyone, so if you need help calculating yours, let me know and I can help you do that. 

 

Air Squats: 140 reps 

 

I am really pulling through with these squats for the challenge, these have been hard but very rewarding, I have seen much results doing them. Also I have been practicing my pistol squats as well and have been doing really well with them (not yet perfect) but good compared to where I was. My goal is to at some point be able to pistol squat on a kettlebell, that would be very rewarding! Hope all of you had a wonderful start to your Tuesday. Please feel free to share, comment, like and follow me.
