Balls + Records = Jelly

YIKES!!!  Today’s 43 was rough and brutal and hard!!!  I got this move from Jody at Truth2BeingFit.  I don’t know how she made it look so  easy cause it is anything but!

Start with 3 medicine balls.DSCN0066

Put 1 under each hand and then try (key word – try) and balance both feet on the 3rd ball.  Seriously, just holding this position was hard.DSCN0076

The actual move is a push-up!!  x 43

I would rather do the 4-ball push-up any day!!!  The narrow feet (on the same ball) makes this move so much harder!  I lost count of how many times I fell off!

So, what are you doing sitting here reading – go try this move – I know you want to!!!

Today I pulled out another DVD that I haven’t done in awhile – Turbo Jam – Cardio Party 3.  This is another series that Chalean Johnson does and I love her workouts.  Always high energy and fun music!  Sometimes she gets a little dancey for me – I just add in extra jumps when that happens and   it works out perfectly!

I decided to challenge myself today with a plank hold and wall-sit (cause sometimes I’m stupid crazy like that!!).

I like to do planks with my arms fully extended (like might not be exactly the right word – but it is how I usually do them).

 not from today but only pic
not from today but only picture I could find

Since I did these after the boys were at school – there are no pictures from today!! I wanted to find one of me in plank and this was as close as I got.

Plank Time – 3:30 

 

Then I decided to see how long I could last in a wall-sit (cause I figured why not at this point!!).

Wall-Sit Time – 3:00

 And now – my arms and legs are  jelly!!!

Do you do little self-challenges?  Share if you do (I might like to join in on the fun!).

Happy Wednesday!

Kim
