This week I did a new 45 every day but that was pretty much the only fitness that I was able to do. My body/mind is screaming for some cardio and sweating but……
Sunday 10/26 – 45 push-ups on the boat.
Best 45 ever because it was such a gorgeous day and I got my movement in while enjoying the last boat ride of the year!!!
Can’t beat the fresh air while doing some push-ups!!!
Monday 10/27 – 45 leg drops with a band pull.
I kept my upper body off the ground the entire time to make this move harder – it was definitely hard!!!
I did do The Firm – Cardio AbSession & Burn, Shape & Tone. This ended up being the same as the Cardio Core Fusion that I did last week with the fun pink balls –
Tuesday 10/28 – 45 side lying scissors while on wobble disc.
Over course I had to do another set while lying on the other hip.
I liked the added balance challenge from the wobble disc!!!
Wednesday 10/29 – 45 plank – partner hand slaps.
Because I’m not working out in the mornings my whole routine is off. On Wednesday I didn’t actually do my 45 until about 9:30 at night (rare to not do it first thing!!).
This move was fun to do with Jordan – he did awesome and completed all 45 with me – that’s a long time to hold plank since we counted 1 rep as 2 hand slaps!!
Thursday 10/30 – 45 bent over wide row with dumbbells (12 pounds).
This is one of those moves that always seems like it should be easy and it is until after about 20 reps!!!
Friday 10/31 – 45 double arm overhead press with dumbbell (15 pounds).
And, I look like the “stay-puff guy” because I have on so many layers in those pictures. Remember at the beginning of the week we were enjoying a final boat ride???
Well, Friday was COLD!! I spent the morning at the high school state cross country meet and needed every layer I had on plus some!!! The windchill was in the 20s!
Saturday 11/1 – 45 repeaters – knee up with a twist – knee up front = 1 rep.
Bring your knee up with a twist, return to start (tap toe if you need to), bring knee up in front for 1 rep. This move actually goes quickly and is at least a little bit of cardio.
Of course, you have to be equal and fair to your legs so set 2 is on the other leg.
By pumping my arms and moving quickly I did get my heart rate up a little for the first time in awhile!!! And, this move is great for your core because of the knee lift (get it high!!) and the twist!!!
Sunday 9/7 –44 cross body obliques (standing) – knee to elbow.
I tried to stay balanced on one leg the entire time I was doing this move – sort of a challenge!! And, I had to do the other side!
I like moves like this – and I love that Jordan is doing homework in the background without a shirt!!!
I did an easy 4 mile run just to shake my legs out a bit!!!
Monday 9/8 – 44 crunches while laying on the foam roller.
This move was sort of nice on the down part as a stretch!!!
Tuesday 9/9 – 44 chest fly in crunch position with a band. This move is one I adapted from Stuft Mama.
Basically I just opened my arms to the side and then up in front while holding my core tight the entire time!!
Wednesday 9/10 – 44 side lying scissors with legs.
I counted a right leg on top and right leg back as 1 rep. This move really worked my hips because I kept my legs off the ground the entire time.
And, of course, I had to flip over and get the other side!!
Thursday 9/11 – 44 wide push-ups with fingers pointing out.
And, I ran a race – The Patriot’s Run.
I didn’t get my goal (50 miles) but I run over a marathon and then called it a day (thoughts on the race on Monday!).
Friday 9/12 – 44 seated leg extensions.
This 44 almost didn’t happen. Chris and I had to go to Wichita to get stuff for his uniform at the BX and then I sort of forgot. Better to get it done at 10:00 pm than never!!!
Saturday 9/13 – 44 3 part stretch.
I did this early this morning before we left for Hunter’s very cold cross country meet which is why I have on about 3 layers of clothes!! The stretch was just what I needed after running Thursday and spending over 4 hours in the car on Friday.
Happy Saturday!!! (cold here – I hope this isn’t a sign of the coming winter weather!!)
