Self-Satisfaction For 2014

spart1Most of my posts touch on some subject that promotes inner and outer beauty.  For men, beauty may not be the right word, so we’ll go with confidence! Wow that sounds good!  At our spa we treat your body, whether it be a massage, laser hair removal, facial etc.  Though it feels amazing, our hope is to make you “feel” better.  A huge factor in your happiness is how you feel about yourself.  In the end, it doesn’t matter what compliments you get; they sure feel good when you get them but it’s not nearly as satisfying as being genuinely happy with yourself;  how you feel, look, think about yourself.  

There are several factors that contribute to self-satisfaction; exercise being one of them!  This workout is such a great one because it allows you to go as far as you want, depending on how your body is feeling that day.  It’s a fun, fast paced workout that gets the sweat dripping, muscles burning and lungs fighting for air.  If you’re feeling like your pushing yourself too far, slow it down, you’ll still be getting a great workout.  I got it from Men’s Health a couple months back, I tried it then and it made me feel so good!  It’s all body weight or really light weight, I’ve done it with men and women and it’s killer for both.  I switch up my workouts often, but now I’m back on the wagon with this workout and forgot how much I loved it!

The workout is called Sparticus and I tell you what, if you’re looking for a way to trim down but build muscle at the same time, this is the one.  You’ll find it works the entire body and really makes the core work hard.  If you hardly ever work out and it was one of your resolutions this year to start, don’t push too hard, just finish one round of the circuit and work up from there next time.  It’s all about you!  Sooner or later, you’ll be able to do all 3 circuits.

Directions:
Do this circuit 3 days a week. Perform 1 set of each exercise (or “station”) in succession. Each station lasts 60 seconds. Do as many reps as you can (with perfect form) in that time, and then move on to the next station. Give yourself 15 seconds to move between stations, and rest for 2 minutes after you’ve completed 1 circuit of all 10 exercises. Then repeat twice. If you can’t go the entire minute, rest a few seconds and then resume until your time at that station is up. Use a weight that’s challenging for 15 to 20 reps.

Exercises:  If you don’t know any of these exercises, visit here to get details.

  2.  Mountain Climber
  3.  Dumbbell Swing
  4.  T Push-up
  5.  Split Jump
  6.  Dumbbell Row

  9.  Lunge Rotation
  10.  Push Press

Hope you enjoy as much as I did!  Let me know what you think of the workout!  Sometimes I do the alter the exercises a little to get a different angle on it, stay loose, do what your body wants.
