I Need This Kind of Protection and a Quick Home HIIT Workout

 

I know I can’t be the only one who works out with my phone close by at all times. Whether it’s running a race with my phone so I can listen to music (and call someone in case of emergencies), using it to teach fitness classes or using it as a timer for home workouts, my phone can take a beating.

I’m always on the lookout for better protection, especially because more often than not my phone gets into the wrong five year old hands. Actually, I better take some credit for that as frequently I have one of the boys do a quick video of a fun move or we make videos on our own. Ha.

You know, like this one.

With everything I put my phone through I honestly can’t believe I’ve never cracked the screen. I’m just waiting for that day to come. One of these days, hopefully before it’s too late, I’ll get my hands on a tough cover glass that will make me feel more comfortable and get a little more protection for my phone.

I’ve currently got my eyes on Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, which I have yet to try, but is the toughest cover glass yet.

In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs.

I’m trying to think of what workout or activity I do that puts my phone in dangerous dropping situations the most.

When I’m on the treadmill, it’s right there with me in the console, but when I run it’s in my handy dandy belt.

Not that running in the dark is very phone safe either, but I need my phone in those situations. You better believe that flashlight comes in handy at 4:00 am.

If I’m running with the boys, which right now is my favorite way to run, that phone is in my hand quite a bit of the time so I can take pictures of their bike riding skills while I’m running. Yeah, having Gorilla Glass 4 would be ideal in that situation. You can find out if your device has Gorilla Glass here.

I’ve actually dropped it from my spin bike before while teaching class. That wasn’t awkward or anything. Ha. I tried to be cool and pick it up off the floor and get the music started again right away, but there wasn’t much I could do to remedy the situation.

Since I’m all about saving time these days, I use my phone to do quick home interval workouts. I set my timer for 1 minute intervals.

After each interval I do 10 burpees and then move on to the next move. You just need a couple minutes sometimes to break a sweat and get a good workout in.

Here’s a fun one to try at home.

1 minute jump squats- 10 burpees

1 minute push ups- 10 burpees

1 minute mountain climbers- 10 burpees

1 minute reverse lunges- 10 burpees

1 minute V-sit- 10 burpees

 

Try it and let me know what you think.

Have a good one!
