Peak Week Workouts

Sorry about not posting these day-to-day… It’s been a busy week!

If you’re looking for a full-body workout, this may be something you could incorporate into your workout schedule. Keep in mind, there are no leg specific exercises during peak week, so include a leg day on either Thursday or Friday.

Everyday I did 30 minutes bike intervals pre-workout, and another 20-30 minutes later in the day – either stepmill, elliptical or treadmill.
