This week saw in a change in daily moves from 44 to 45. What’s one more rep of anything?!
Sunday 9/14 – 44 heel raises while doing a wall sit and holding up a 20 pound kettle bell.
Not gonna lie – my quads were burning by the time I finished these!!
To do the move: jump back into plank – push-up – jump legs in and right – jump back to plank – jump legs in and left – jump back to plank – jump feet in to hands – jump back to plank – plank jack – jump up to standing – do 8 fast feet. Hooray – 1 rep is done!!!
10 of these would have been OK but 44 was tough!!!
And I’m finally back to normal workouts!!! I started a new program – PIYO – Align the Fundamentals. Not sure how much I’m going to like it but I will give it a try!!!
I did 7.43 miles in 45 minutes (7:23, 6:17, 5:51, 5:34, 5:39, 5:54, 5:50 and 6:01 to finish the 8th mile)
I haven’t run hard like this in awhile so I paid the price for this run for the rest of the week – stairs were rough until yesterday and my shins were very tight!!!
Wednesday 9/17 – 45 crunches while on a BOSU with a stability ball between the ankles.
You can see in the pictures that I had to keep my hands on the side of the BOSU – I didn’t hold the entire time but I sure did have to hold a lot for balance!!!
I also did 2 more of the PIYO workouts – Define Lower Body and Define Upper Body.
Thursday 9/18 – 45 plie with hands touching the floor – spring up onto toes and reach hands up.
This was another day of PIYO – Sweat. I looked ahead at the way the program is laid out and it just repeats the same workouts from this week over and over for a few weeks – not sure that I will do this program as it is written!!!
Friday 9/19 – 45 curtsey lunge with hop to opposite leg and another curtsey lunge – stay low the entire time. (right-left = 1 rep)
Then I did one of my favorite workouts – Turbo Fire!!! I did Fire 55EZ (not to be confused with easy!!). Fun way to start the day.
Saturday 9/20 – 45 mountain climbers in low plank.
I let Hunter do the demo since he is the one who told me about this lovely move!!! It was hard but I liked it!!!
So, this wasn’t a super hard week of workouts but it was nice to be back in the routine!!!
