I’ll post the 43 in a minute but first I wanted to say how excited I am for the Breast Cancer Walk later today. Our team, Boobz and Doodz, has raised some money to help support Breast Cancer research and now we are looking forward to walking the 5K together for a great cause!!! WooHoo!!!!
OK – the 43 saw the return of my BOSU ball. This thing has so many uses!
Today, I used it for some cardio. Start standing behind the BOSU. Step up with right foot then left foot. Step right foot off the right side, then left foot off left side. Step back up with right then left foot and jump up with both feet landing in the center of the BOSU. Step off the back with first right foot then left foot. Repeat to your goal – 43 for me!
Today the boys did the demo for me. Hunter is planning to do his age (11) at some point but decided breakfast needed to take priority!
Burpees (sometimes called squat thrusts) are always hard for me. I think it is the combination of moves done in a quick manner – I don’t know but it is something I always have to force myself to do. Start standing then quickly put hands on floor near feet. Jump feet back to plank position. Right away, jump feet back to hands. Stand and jump into the air then repeat.
There are many ways to really increase the intensity of the burpee. One very common way is to add a push-up every time you are in the plank position. For my 43 I decided to just go with the version without a push-up. (lots of push-ups already this week)
I am on my way to Texas for a weekend of shopping with my sister. But, I still wanted to do a 43. I got in some toning work by tightening my butt and stomach muscles and holding them. As I drove through Kansas, I used the mile markers as my reference. I tightened the muscles and held for a mile, then released for a mile until I reached my 43.
I am not typing as I drive, I am dictating to my wonderful husband Chris.
Today started very early!!! I’m subbing at Hunter’s school today so I had to get my work-out and 43 before I left. The good news is, it is only 7:00am and I’ve done my work-out and gotten ready for the day!! The bad news – I might have lost count during my 43 and done 10 extra – I figured more is always better! 😀
The 43 of the day was a roll-up or get-up. Start on your back with arms over-head and roll up. Pop up onto your feet with a jump then lower down and roll back to start.
