Damn, my leg DOMS are JUST kicking in today....lovely.
Well, I wanted to do something DIFFERENT for my HIIT today. So, I decided to do what I call:
Same idea as bicep 21's, but with burpees.
-7 half reps from the pushup position
-7 deep jump squats from the top position
-7 full burpees.
-30 second rest
~Complete as many rounds as you can in 15 minutes~
I did 15 rounds. These are seriously harder than you would think. Halfway through I was like "Oh hell no..."
But then I thought of what a friend of mine told me earlier today..."It's times like these where you really find out what you're made of.".........and I finished!!
Pretty brutal though. I'll definitely try this again. It's a bit painful to see my energy going down, but I know I've only got a few weeks left.
Oh, this is probably the best pre-workout meal ever...if anyone hasn't done this already, it's an absolute MUST. Seriously. I think I may have died and gone to heaven:
Spiced Sweet Potato Mousse:
-100g of baked sweet potato
-1 scoop of vanilla whey (I used Muscle Gauge "Ice Cream Sandwich)
-16g of peanut butter (you can use less, depending on what fits into your macros.)
-stevia/splenda (optional; mine is way sweet without it)
-Pumpkin Pie spice (adjust to meet "spiciness" taste)
-1 oz. of softened FF cream cheese (optional)
1) Mash the sweet potato completely. Sift in the protein powder a little at a time, until it's all mixed in. Add slight amounts of water to get a creamy consistency.
2) Mash in the cream cheese, peanut butter, and stevia/splenda (if using). Add in the spice at the very end.
3) Cover, and let chill in the fridge for an hour.
Believe it or not, despite the fact I really want some filthy carbs post-show, what I'm really, HONESTLY looking forward to, is a huge bowl of mango slices.
God I miss those.
