Today I did my 43 on the beach! It was hard!! I did a burpee with a tuck jump (although my tucks are not very high!).
It is HARD to jump up high in the sand!! This was a 43 that pretty much worked my entire body.
I also did my 2nd round of this week’s workout with Taylor’s challenge. I’m pretty sure that I’m doing the wrong workout this week but I decided to just stick with it because it is perfect for vacation – the one part that requires weights I can use my bands. This is the workout that has 1000 total reps (700 are mountain climbers!). Tuesday it took 14:13 and today I crushed my time – 12:23!!
And, because we are on vacation and I’m trying to maximize time, that was the extent of my work out!! Not gonna lie – working out for less than 30 minutes is not my normal and I’m trying really hard to be OK with the fact that if I go all-out for a short amount of time (HIIT) then I don’t need to work out for hours. Still working on the whole guilt thing!!
In my 43 video today, you can see that I worked out in the loose heavy sand. I think it’s much more difficult to perform moves that require any jumping in the loose sand. However, when I was doing the burpees this morning, I had someone tell me that I should do them on the packed sand to really get the full benefit.
So – what do you think? More benefits from trudging through the loose sand or the packed sand?
And – you know I have to post some more beach pictures!!
Chris and the boys playing in the water – Chris and Hunter said the waves were big enough that it was a workout. Jordan said it wasn’t even close to a workout – maybe because he has been doing boot camp with me all summer!!!
