Bodyweight Moves Are Awesome!!! (6/29-7/5)

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.

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!!!

Happy Saturday!!
