Doodle of the day. #booksturnmugglesintowizards
"Contrary to popular opinion, lactate or, as it is often called, lactic acid buildup is not responsible for the muscle soreness felt in the days following strenuous exercise."
Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope (High Knees)
ZWOW 28 (3 rounds)
10/10 Dragon Kicks
20 Split Squat Jumps
15 Pike Jump Squat Jump
10 Reptile Pushups
ZWOW: This ZWOW was meant to be a 10-min AMRAP, but since I’m kinda um
sucking not at my best these days, I opted to make it a time challenge for 3 rounds. And dear Lord did it burn. My time was 19:39 mins for the 3 rounds. [For book keeping purposes, I competed 1 round + 56 reps in the first 10-mins.] After a massive water break in between, Flatter My Abs burned like hell, and I did 3 sets of Diamond Pushups…which was cool. Arms felt really tight after set 3…but I was digging the feeling, so I added a 4th set. Now, for these, I took a full 3-min break between sets, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to lift myself for all those reps.
Either way, I’m really excited to getting back to doing pushups. I’m not even being sarcastic. I’m being genuinely weird. And it feels particularly nice that I love them so much because it is nice to have something you love doing while submitting yourself to voluntarily exercise torture, you know? So, yeah. Pushups! *fist pump*
When it comes to fitspiration, I carry three bags…
