You know I love all of my fun fitness “toys” but I also love doing bodyweight moves!! There are so many options and moves that work every single muscle group!!!
Sunday 6/29 – 44 alternating star jumps (right – left = 1 rep).
This move was super fun!!! I will definitely add these in to other workouts!!
Monday 6/30 – 44 Y squats (squat while keeping arms in a “Y”).
Keeping my arms up made this squat a challenge!!!
I’m still loving my current weight lifting program – Chalean Extreme – Push Circuit 3.
And, I ran – shorter than some of my runs last week!!
6 miles in 41:50 + 2 easy miles.
Tuesday 7/1 – 44 push-ups with cross body mountain climbers.
This was a fun way to jazz up push-ups!!!
This was another running day!!
12 miles – 92:02 + 2.25 easy miles.
Wednesday 7/2 – 44 alternating cross-over lunges (right-left = 1 rep).
I really enjoyed this move – it was great for toning and also good cardio!!!
This was a lifting day – Chalean Extreme – Push Circuit 1 and the Ab Burner workout – fun!!!
Thursday 7/3 – 44 “waiter” single leg dead lifts. (Keep one arm behind your back while doing dead lifts on opposite leg.)
This was a fairly light day of workouts because I chose not to get up super early!!!
Tae-Bo Ab Boot Camp – since I haven’t done this in awhile I feel sure that I will be sore in the next day or two – score!!!
Friday 7/4 – 44 plank forward walks. Starting in plank walk right hand front, left hand front, right hand back, left hand back then switch lead hands for 1 rep.
This was hard – a lot of time spent in plank!!
Then, the boys and I did the 6 mile race around the lake!!!
For some reason, I struggled through the entire 6 miles!!!
My time was 44:50 which should not have felt as hard as it did – 3rd female finisher.
Hunter finished in 52:40 – he did awesome and loved the race!!!
Jordan’s time was 53:57 – he had a rough time near the end but still did a super job!!!
Saturday 7/5 – 44 prisoner lateral lunges (alternating).
A right and a left counted as 1 rep. This was another fun move – I enjoyed the body weight moves a lot this week!
This was sort of a lighter week of workouts but I think I needed it based on how I felt during the race yesterday and most of the rest of the day after running!!!
