Thank you all SO much for your feedback on yesterday’s post. It sounds like I am far too self-conscious about my life and that you aren’t expecting my recaps to come straight out of US Weekly. I’m no Kardashian…at least not yet! Rob’s still single right?
I’ve come to the conclusion that when I have interesting events and pictures to share I will, but the rest of the time I’ll spare you the snooze-fest. Screw consistency! And apparently you all seem to like my Random Ramblings. That truly baffles me, but I am never without random observations and crude remarks so I will do my best to keep up this series.
Today I am linking up with Lisa’s first ever Fit Tip Tuesday. It’s my goal to include more workouts and fitness info this year so Lisa’s link-up has presented an awesome opportunity for me to do so. But as I just mentioned I’m clearly not great at consistency so don’t be surprised if Fit Tip Tuesday is replaced with “whatever Davs is baking Tuesday” on occasion. Baking > Fitness…always.
My fit tip today is likely to come off as incredibly vain, but it totally works for me. We’ve already determined my lack of fashion sense, but when it comes to workout gear I have a very real shopping problem. I have infinitely more pairs of spandex pants than jeans and a drawer dedicated purely to workout tops. It’s kind of getting out of hand.
For some crazy reason I find I’m more motivated to sweat it out when I’m looking fab-u-lous at the gym. Just me? Occasionally I’ll sport my all-black Ninja attire but more often than not you’ll find me channeling my Cindy Lauper in bright fitness gear. So when RBX Active contacted me about trying out some of their clothes I couldn’t turn them down.
Here’s the thing, I am not picky at all about brands. I am however incredibly picky about fit. Especially with spandex there is nothing worse than doing your squats only to discover the entire gym has been staring at your plumbers crack. So I put my new RBX gear to the test with a lower-body circuit.The pants passed with flying colours and the shirt was not clingy or restricting at all.
Not only does RBX fit well and stay in place when I am working hard but the X-dri sets the apparel apart from other athletic wear. The wicking technology of RBX X-dri apparel is a must for long sweaty workouts! Even better, their clothes are totally affordable so you don’t have to pick up a second job to support your Lululemon problem. You can find them at Target, Bob’s, Boscov and a bunch more locations listed here. I highly recommend!
Now that we’re all outfitted for our gym sesh I thought I’d share with you the workout that I did. It’s a pyramid workout so you will complete each exercise before going back up in reverse order. I completed the circuit 4 times (up and down twice) and paired it with my Bike Boredom Blaster Workout. DOMS for days, but it was nice to feel like I was starting to get my strength back!
You can complete this workout with weights for added intensity or if you’re at home with no weights you are sure to feel it with just your bodyweight. Sweat on friends!
Thanks for hosting us Lisa. If you haven’t had a chance to check out her blog do so RIGHT NOW. She’s seriously cool. I’m surprised she even talks to me!
