I've been mentioning that I'm nursing a neck pull. It's going on two weeks, but, I'm finally feeling better! YAY! Guys, besides a couple of long walks, I took 5 days off from working out... FIVE... FIVE!!! Good thing it was 4th of July weekend and I distracted my urge to workout with sunshine, yummy food, and delicious bevs. Not exactly the healthiest way to take a break, but, it is what it is!
Anyway, yesterday I went for a nice rainy run and did some minor lifting in the living room. Today, I'm still not 100% ready to go back to boxing :(. And, it's too damn hot and humid to just run for miles so I improvised with the following workout that I created and want to share since I think it's good for anyone looking for a solid indoor/outdoor body weight workout without any equipment.
Improvise as needed. You'll notice that the lower body work is heavier than upper body. As much as I hate taking a break, I KNOW that in order to get my neck back to 100%, I have to give it a rest.
After my workout, I still had those chicken thighs and a bunch of tomatoes/avocado/mozz leftover from last night so I chopped everything and put it on a brown rice tortilla and made it into a Mediterranean quesadilla! Mmmmm....
How have you all been handling workouts in this heat? Let me know in the comments below!
Have a great rest of the week xo
