This week I used my stability ball and focused on the butt – I ended up doing a lot of new moves and some of them were HARD!!!
Sunday 6/22 – 44 stability ball kick back toner.
Start by placing your hands on the ball – and kick right leg back.
Pull your right knee in to the ball –
Repeat for 44 reps and you will feel this in both legs – your left leg will be shaking!!! And, of course, you don’t want to be off balance so this has to be done on the other leg!!
I will definitely be doing this move more often!!!
Monday 6/23 – 44 hip lifts on stability ball.
This move looks fairly simple but after about 20 you will feel your butt and hamstrings a lot!!
This was a lifting day – Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 3. Ready to move on to the next phase!!
And, I did a 10 mile run in 76:56 followed by 1.8 miles easy.
Tuesday 6/24 – 44 plank with shins on stability ball and alternate leg lifts.
This was hard to do and hold plank – my butt hurt, my arms were shaking and my core was burning – all signs of a good move.
I did another 10 mile run (76:15) followed by 1.6 easy miles.
Wednesday 6/25 – 44 side leg pulls on stability ball.
Start by leaning on the stability ball with your left side and extend your right leg to the side –
Pull your right knee in to the ball and hold for a 2-count –
After your right hip is dying (or when you complete all reps – 44) then switch sides to go again!!!
This move is another one that I will be doing more often – it was a great way to really work my hips!!!
I finally started the next phase in Chalean Extreme – Push Circuit 1. This phase involves heavier lifting with fewer reps. I have been sore the past couple of days so that is good!!!
And, I pulled out one of my 10 Minute Solution DVDs – Kickbox Bootcamp. This one is fun because the 5 sections are all a little different and it is a great whole body workout!!!
Thursday 6/26 – 44 single leg dead lift with one leg on stability ball.
This move was much harder than it looks!!! Keeping myself balanced was a huge challenge!! And, you know that I can’t just work one side!!
This was another 10 mile run day (I’m not sure why I did 10 miles every day I ran this week – just the amount that fit into my day!!) in 77:12 followed by 2.25 easy miles.
Friday 6/27 – 44 reverse leg lifts on the stability ball
Not gonna lie – this was one of my favorite moves of the week!!!
And, it was a lifting day!! Chalean Extreme – Push Circuit 2. I think I did heavier weights for shoulder presses than I ever have (not saying a lot but…..)!!!
Saturday 6/28 – 44 stability ball leg squeezes with a butt lift.
This move was great for the butt and inner thighs!!!
And, since we had to go clean for the 3rd day in a row at the venue, I decided to run through town and let Chris start the cleaning!
It was exactly 10 miles at an 8:30 pace (humid and muggy)!!! And, I didn’t have to clean – running beats cleaning any day!!!
