Circuit: Another sweatfest, but in a different way. This circuit targeted the upper body (to balance out yesterday’s which was lower body heavy). I’m a bit sore from yesterday so I didn’t exactly timed myself per round nor did I take breaks on any specific lengths. When I needed a bit breather, I took it, and when my arms a break, I gave it to them… always while still pushing myself, of course. I wasn’t kidding when I said it was a sweatfest. Overall, it took me around 38 mins to complete.
For the Burpees, I did the pushups as Push Up, Push Offs. Each Burpee = 2 pushups, one lifting the right hand and the other one lifting the left hand. [I tried to do the hand lifting in one swift motion (like, from the pushup straight to the hand lifting) but it didn’t always happen.] This was also my second time doing the One Arm Press Ups. I did better with those than the first time, but they still kick my ass. They look simple, but then turn out to be more challenging as the reps stack up…and ESPECIALLY if you are trying to get back down to starting position with any type of…um, finesse. That set of reps took me the longest to complete on every round. After that, I did as much as I could (I did fairly well, considering) of the Corset Workout routine, and finished with a 15-min session of Yoga by Candace. That felt good overall.
