Weekend Workouts Sweet Potato Concoction

The stair BEAST! Ever try this machine?

I had an ice cream with brownies in it this weekend, I will admit. (which I don't like so won't be mixing my brownies and ice cream again)

Worked out really hard this weekend, and feelin' it SORE!

I even did the MONSTER manual stair climber for 5 minutes (usally I do this for 20 minutes if I do NO other cardio). I know your thinking that's not much, huh? But after 15 minutes on the elliptical at a calorie burn of 1 calorie per minute it was tough! I burned 2 cals per minute on that stair MONSTER puppy.....sheesh.

Plus on a down side, I did have to drop down on the asst pullups machine by 10lbs but you know I am ok with that.

Last week I really kept my fat macro in line and hope to do the same this week, just tweeking some things while trying to stay on a budget.

On a food note, (I did not load the pictures yet) I am trying a new thing with my sweet potato........

  1. I LOVE THE STAIR BEAST!!!! I do it in the off season, I wish I had more time to do it during the season, but I just cant fit it all in, LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

  2. We dont get those stairs here in Germany, wonder if South Africa has them in their gyms, when I left there 6 years ago they didn't...looks like a HARD workout.

  3. The workout is very necessary for a fit body. But the workout should be taken under guidance.
