How to approach long workouts!

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

Todays Workout: 20 min EMOTM

Odd minutes: 15 Burpees =)

Even Minutes: 15-20 Calories Row

Who is excited?! Typically reading a workout like today would frighten most people. But here are some tips that you can use on any long workouts.

Tip 1: Pace your self early on. What does that look like or feel like? To me it is always a pace I can partly talk if I needed too. If I can't answer someones questions I am going way too fast. Usually sustain this type of pace for about half the workout and if I feel I can increase the pace, I usually kick it in the second half.

Tip 2: Give your self 10-15 seconds of rest in between transitions and really try to practice getting your heart rate down in those few seconds. Transition movement to movement with no rest jacks the heart rate up and it makes it really difficult to sustain that pace.

Tip 3: Enjoy the suck ;) I love short workouts that are intense but I know what I need the most are typically the longer more aerobic workouts. I gravitate toward the workouts that typically challenge me the most. Working on something I'm typically not good at helps me improve not only my overall fitness but my life.

Be excited, be challenged, and improve!
