ZWOW#39: I keep messing up with my timer so, ONCE AGAIN, I failed to timed myself…because I seemingly can’t push a freaking button accurately lately. *please insert a facepalm* I THINK it took me around 15 minutes? My favorite move of the bunch was the Lunge to Power Skip. Felt it in my calves and quads a lot. As an extra modification for the Stationary Lunge to Press, I held two dumbbells, but only did the Press with one dumbbell.
Challenge Circuit: I performed Bulgarian Squats using a chair and holding 10-lb dumbbell. Objective: Go as freaking low as I could go for each rep. I don’t do enough Bulgarian Squats. I really should. I felt the burn all through my calves, hamstrings, butt and a little bit on my quads. Awesome lower body move. Anyway, I paired those up with 1-min rounds of Squat variations (Isometric, Pulses and Squat Jumps). I performed each variation for 20-secs. I tried to get as many pulses and Squat Jumps as the burn allowed me to for those 20-secs. I don’t think I got more than 10 Squat Jumps per round, though.
Class FitSugar: Oh the freaking pain. THIS ONE HURTS. LIKE HELL. Since I only have a long tube resistance band, I tie it up tightly just above my knees and it more than gets the job done. Seriously, try this one for a SERIOUS side butt/outer thigh burn.
