If I have learn one thing this week, it is: I HATE WORKING OUT WHILE I’M SORE. In related news: I’m am sore.
ZWOW #40: Perfect for the Squat Challenge.
Air Squats: with 8-lb dumbbells
Plyo Pushups: from modified position (on my knees)
The routine itself felt very intense and took me 17:44 min to complete the 3 rounds. Plyo Pushups, as you should know, are crazy. Um, I would like to point out that Zuzka’s form is HORRIBLE on her video. *smh* Doing pushups on your knees doesn’t give anyone license to stick their butt up in the air. (Weird. Keep the butt down.) Anyway, those are tough. Modification Tip: If you can’t do the clap, try to at least push your hands off the floor.
After that I took a 3-min long water break and another circuit…just so I could fit in more SQUATS! (Ugh. Why am I doing this to myself?!) I used my 10-lb dumbbells for the Deadlift/High Pull combo. I didn’t like the move as much I think I would…(but if my hamstrings are sore tomorrow I’ll change my opinion. Right now all I feel is my lower back.) I finished with some POP Pilates for Abs and it was THEN that I realized even my abs were sore! (WHAT IS THIS?!) Anyway, 400 Squats to go over the next two days. I’m doing this. I’m doing this though I have no apparent motivation other than my stubbornness.
Stubbornness always wins.
