But got 4 workouts in, officially making up for last week. Oh, for the record., I hate the name “Saddlebag Slimmers”. Why oh why name an exercise that. Why. Lame. I used a mini Ball on Blogilates’ Inner Thigh workout because I don’t own the ring thingy.

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

8-lb dumbbells on ZWOW


I scheduled ZWOW 14 for this week, so I figured I’d get it out of the way before I reconsidered. I have done this workout twice before; my best time being 25:44 mins sometime last year. It’s summer, month of August, humidity was at 74%, heat index at 92°F (34°C), I wasn’t going for PRs as much I was going for completing the 5 rounds without passing out, but I did it. 5 rounds in 31:40 mins. AND that’s counting the 1-mins breaks I took between rounds. I feel super awesome about it. Very tough workout. Honestly, I did a bit of abs and stretching after a recovery break at the end because that’s the only thing I could bother doing by that point. But, yeah, hooray, I survived.

Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory.

Challenge Circuit: The 4-min Abs and Thighs Challenge burned sooo badly. OMG, Cassey Ho. I replayed the video and did the Lateral Walking down and up my corridor for the duration of the song. [I held the Resistance Band THIS WAY.] Then finished with planks and stretching.

Blogilates: Stretching for Flexibility

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbell: Skull Crusher Squats
*Stability Ball / **Resistance Band


Circuit: 4 rounds for 34 mins, focusing on upper body and core. My triceps were feeling THIS. Those first 3 moves, back-to-back, did things to them. I followed that with a few rounds of isometric moves. I switched the position of my legs for each Wall Sit (narrow, regular, wide) and aimed to hold it for 1-min straight…but that didn’t exactly happen. 40/30/30 secs straight (respectively) was more of the reality. Wall Sits burn like hell, dude. So good.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

10/10 Lateral Step Ups
10 Wiper Plank
10 Jumping Lunge to Step Up
10/10 Window Washer Leg Swing
10 Elevator Step Up

Blogilates: 5-mins Abs Express
TIU: Stretch & Release

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: all Step Up variations
Chair


Circuit: Since I used the 15-lb DBs for the Step Ups, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to go that fast even if I tried. I focused on form (and breathing and wiping the sweat off me). I did 3 rounds (12:11/15:22/18:33 mins, respectively), with breaks between rounds around 1-2 mins.

For the Wiper Planks, 1 rep = left side + right side wiper. For both the Wiper Plank and the Window Washers, I used the Chair and kept my feet on it (Decline Plank position). On the Window Washers, I brought my toe to touch the floor and swung back the leg squeezing my booty and core. [This is one of my favorite moves. The use of the chair on this one makes it rock my world.] For the Jumping Lunge to Step Up —in case it is not clear, I did a weighted Jumping Lunge, and then used the back leg to do the weighted Step Ups. For the Elevator, I repeated that, except on the Step Up there’s an added Hammer Curl and Shoulder Press, while balancing on one leg. Super challenging.

Sarah Fit: Arm Slimming Routine
Blogilates: Broom Burn Workout
Yoga by Candace for Chest

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

2/5-lbs dumbbells for Sarah Fit’s routine


Circuit: As many reps as possible on each round…which added up to a whole lotta reps. The moves where focused on core and upper body for the most part. Very good use of 10-minutes.

Sarah Fit/Blogilates: Both videos feature Barre-inspired moves, low weight/high reps routines, but don’t take that for lack of sweat & burn.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

ZWOW 60 (3 rounds)

10 Goblet Squat Twists
10 Cross Leg Pushups
15/15 Cross Body Kicks
10 4-point Punches
10 Jump Over Bench Broad Jumps

Blogilates: Pippa’s Bum Workout
Yoga by Candace for Tight Legs

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

20-lb dumbbell: Squat
8-lb dumbbells: 4-point Punches


ZWOW/Blogilates: 3 rounds for time took me 15:56 mins to complete. I technically beat my personal best time (16:40 mins), though I didn’t realized until I was done that I had used 10-lb dumbbells for the Punches then. But since I have not beaten any personal best record in whole lotta time, I’ll take this. I did Broad Jumps in substitution of the Jumps Over the Bench because…I don’t have a bench in the middle of my room. Last time, I jumped over a kettlebell, so I guess I upgraded that one. Makes up for the Punches. I finished with one of my favorite butt routines from Blogilates, and then some yoga stretching.

If you haven’t notice, I’ve been incorporating more yoga into my routines. I’m hoping to improve my balance and flexibility so I figured a bit of more yoga (despite not being so great at it) would help. Also, all these Jump Rope warm ups have really improved my skipping. That has me really excited. I’ll tackle that 1000 skips for time challenge again soon enough. Ah!

10/10 Suitcase Deadlift
12 Narrow Squats
10* Sprinter Abs

Blogilates: Hips, Butt & Thighs Super Shaper Workout
Yoga by Candace for Lower Back and Legs

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

12-lb dumbbells: Burpee with Bicep Curl and Narrow Squats
30-lb load on the Suitcase Deadlifts

I wasn’t planning to work out, but then there was this mysteriously windy, cool (84ºF, ha!) weather out today, and I just couldn’t bring myself to not do it.

Circuit/Blogilates: 4 rounds (6:16/6:54/7:44/8:55 mins, respectively) for 33:39 mins total. Really enjoyed this routine. I’m sure the weather helped, but still. Noteworthy | For the Burpees with Bicep Curl, I made a point of pausing for a second before the actual Bicep Curl just to make sure I wasn’t using any momentum on the Curls. For the Narrow Squats, I held each dumbbell on top of my shoulder. On the Blogilates video: did as much as I could by this point. Modified the Side Plank Leg Lifts.
