Weekly Workouts 5.20 – 5.26

So in an effort to be as cool as fellow blogger & Aquarium employee, Kerry, I thought it would be cool to log my workouts for the week! It’s a great way to keep track of what you did and also share fun new workouts […]

So, as per usual, I had a killer workout this morning with Team Rick (my Under Armour trainer, Rick Logan) and kick-butt friend, Molly (@Mbakes2123). We were super excited to try out Under Armour’s new Armour39 performance monitoring system!

Under Armour Armour39

Armour39 tracks your heart rate, calories burned, real-time intensity and “WILLpower” (a workout measure they have set measuring how hard your body has worked during a training session on a scale of 0-10). We threw on the straps and put in specific modules. The module is what transmits the information to a device. You can use a mobile app or a watch – we used the phone.

The coolest part about it is that you can look at your stats in REAL TIME! We literally had two iPhones with us during the workout and could look at how we were doing throughout.

We did a high intensity cardio workout (that seriously pushed me to the edge!):

  • 20 shuffle rope slams 
  • 20 burpee kettle bell pickups 
  • 20 squat jumps with resistance band overhead press 
  • 20 squat jumps 

We did this as fast as we could three times! PHEW!

After the workout, our scores were great (according to Rick – who could have just been stroking our egos haha)!

The other cool thing about the scores and the “WILLpower” number is that you can use it to set targets for your workouts. If I continued to use this (which I might…), it’s great for deciding where you want to be on light versus hard days and pushing yourself to that level. It’s a great motivator and comparison number for YOUR workouts. Rick made sure to let us know that it wasn’t really a good comparison person to person because everyone functions differently.

If you don’t get it from my posts, Rick is amazing! If you live in the area and you’re looking to join Team Rick, give him a shout!
