Super-duper super sets

So super sets are, well, ….fun?  Fun might not be the right word, but they defiantly get your heart rate going while also getting in a great muscle-building workout.  Super sets basically consist of two different sets, done back to back, and then 2 mins rest.  At first your heart will be racing, but in time your body will adapt and they will become an exhilarating way to workout.

Since this was the first time I had done super sets, we didn’t get to everything that my trainer wanted me to do for my workout (and that was after an hour and a half).  He added about three exercises that he wanted me to incorporate next time I did this workout.  I imagine the next time I do this, my entire workout will be around 2 hours!

This workout was actually from Wednesday afternoon and I have opted to take a small break since then.  Well, actually life just kind of got in the way and I haven’t had the time to get over to the gym.  Mixed with a not-so-great night’s sleep last night, I probably won’t be going back to the gym until Monday.  Right now, even as I write this, all I wanna do is go lay down and not wake up until at least 7am tomorrow!  Seven may not seem too late to some people but that is “sleeping in” to me!  I’m usually up between 5-6am every morning.  Whether it be to take my husband to work or because my fur-babies want to eat, I don’t get to sleep in often.  So this weekend I am going to play catch up with my zzzz’s!
