Sunday was a 35-minute elliptical session. during which I got my heart rate up to 170 bpm. I had my heart rate monitor on - having it is a really cool thing, to be honest. Takes the guess work out of how hard am I working, is my mind lying to me or what ... that kind of a thing.
Monday was another 35-minute session. I started it off thinking quite conservatively, in that I thought to do a session that would be just under 30 minutes. I got that done, and then took a second to realise that I needed a bit more done. So I put the GymBoss timer back on and kept going until I got to 35 minutes.
Like eight or nine rounds of this:
1:55 elliptical machine. earlier rounds went easy, later rounds, went harder
1:55 kettlebell lifts, swings and presses. Used the 16-kilo bell for most rounds.
I really liked the cleans and presses - I think they will help with rugby. They certainly helped get the heart rate up.
