ActiveX

Posted by Active Belle on Nov 28, 2007 10:13:00 AM

I tried a new strength/cardio workout yesterday following my 20:00 warm up run. It is called ActiveX and is supposed to build overall strength and conditioning for triathlon.

 

Tuesday's workout went like this: Run 400 meters from the pool deck, up the ramp, around the office building, through the parking lot and back down to the pool deck. Go straight into 30 squats with 10 pound dumbbells then do 30 sit ups. Repeat sequence two more times.

 

It is a quick 20 minute workout that moves fast and is timed so that progress can be tracked. It was much harder than I had expected. I felt heavy and sluggish...like I had never worked out before.

 

Overall it was a lot of fun to work out in a group and I am excited for Friday's session.

 

 

My time was 20:36
