Circuit: Lower body centric. 3 rounds (9:57/10:17/11:21 mins, respectively) with 1-min of rest between rounds. On the Single Leg Squat + Reach, I held the heavier weight (15) on the squatting leg side and the lighter weight on the “reaching” hand side. On the Hamstring Curls, I held the dumbbell between my two feet from prone position (a bit tricky) and did as many reps as possible for 1-min.
I followed that with Tough Love Handles —which was tough and challenging, as it always is— BUT THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE ENTIRE WORKOUT was the fact that I managed to do my first ever wall-assisted headstand. Whaaaaa. When I finished my stretching, I decided to try to do one, and by Grindewald’s Elder Wand, I pulled it off. My feet were on the wall before I even had a chance to freak out about it. I came THAT easy. Whaaaaa. Guys, I was so shocked that I dropped the headstand just so I could tweet about it. Then I tried again and it happened. Again! And then I was hyped up enough to try a wall-assisted handstand….but that one was a no-go. It didn’t happen. Ha! But how about that? What an awesome random thing to happen. So happy!
