About the Reviewer
During my collegiate soccer career, in the Spring Season, we would work out every morning from 6-7am sprint-work, and then 7-8am lifting, so I am comfortable waking up and getting directly into a cardio workout…which sometimes feels like I truly wake up about 6 minutes into the run…but that works for me, it just means I ran that first mile while I was still asleep.
Lunch Time Workout
I prefer to do cardio & strength training at lunch time during the work day. Most commonly I will run a mile on the treadmill (typically the Landice L7) and pause to jump off and do an upper body exercise (chest press, lat pull downs, dips, pull-ups), run another mile and then pause and do another strength exercise, and so on for up to 4 miles.
In the evenings I typically coach soccer, therefore depending on what age I’m working with and the training agenda it could be the most intense workout of the day for me. Even in a session where I am not directly included in the exercises, I am still on my feet running around the field and performing demonstrations so my Apple Watch still calculates loads of activity and coaching days are always my highest calorie burn days regardless of whether or not I am actually included in the play. On the days I do play in the exercises, my activity level trajectory takes a massive spike upward.
