I nerd out, geek out and work out in no predetermined order. Cheese is my weakness. Harry Potter is my strength.

How to Pistol Squat: A couple of days ago, I decided out of nowhere to try Progression #4 —the Counterweight Balance Assistance— and I surprised myself by being able to get back up “on my own”! Assisted, but I got up. Without falling or without my arms aid (like in Progression #3). I’d seem that the weight would make the Pistols harder, but it was what actually did the trick for me. For anyone trying to master the Pistol Squat: listen to the tips in the video, get ready to fail a lot (harsh truth), and keep practicing!

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

1-min AMRAP Competition Burpees

12-lb dumbbell: Concentration Curls

Circuit: 4 rounds (8:53/9:57/10:19/10:26 mins, respectively) with 1-min break between rounds. The circuit was focused on the upper body: biceps, triceps, shoulders. The Competition Burpees were a tremendous cardio blast on each round. My reps per round on those were 16/14/14/14, respectively. [A few years back, the most Competition Burpees I could do in a minute was 20-21 reps, so it was kind of nice to see that I wasn’t that far behind from those numbers.] My arms felt super tight and awesome. I really had to pushed on that 4th round.and I felt wiped out after everything was done. This was a good one!

I kept the dumbbells to my sides on the Lunges and on my shoulders for the Uneven Squats. Rep count for Walking Lunges: round 1 (23/20), round 2 (19/20), round 3 (20/18) and round 4 (20/16). Solid leg and butt burn overall.

I did “Manmakers" on today’s workout and was reminded of this song.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

10 Manmakers
1-min AMRAP Star Squats
10/10 Single Arm Press Up Dog
3 sets of 10 Star Crunches to Reverse Plank

Yoga by Candace After Work Sequence

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

12-lb dumbbells: Manmakers


Circuit: 3 rounds (12:14/13:43/13:57 mins, respectively) with a 90-sec break between rounds. It was total body, upper body-heavy routine. For the Star Squats mini-AMRAPs, I ended up doing 25/24/25 reps per round. Each circuit round was around 115 reps because the “Manmakers" (#iamwomanhearmeroar) are such a heavy-duty compound move: plank to pushup to renegade row to bicep curl to shoulder press. Awesome burn, awesome sweat.

Circuit: 4 rounds (8:02/7:58/8:23/9:25 mins, respectively) with 30-secs of rest in between them. It was hot as hell. This week as a whole has been really rough in terms of heat and humidity. Ugh! 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.

Interval Training
: I’m sore from yesterday, but I wanted to stick with this week’s schedule (making up for last week, kind of).  No rest except for the 10-secs intervals. I didn’t used any extra weight on the Skater Kick Ups intervals because my legs were too sore to handle it efficiently.

Rep count: Mule Kicks (8/6/6), Curtsy Rows (8/8/8), Skater Kick Up (R, 6/9/9), Skater Kick Ups (L, 6/7/9) and Paddle Boat Crunches (6/6/7). I finished with a 30-min yoga session focusing on legs and core (minus the headstand…did an L-Stand instead).

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.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

10 Skull Crusher to Pyramid Weighted Russian Twists combo
10 Uneven Walking Pushups*
10/10 Single Arm Crossover Bicep Curls

Blogilates: Flatter My Abs + Relax With Me

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

*Yoga Block


Circuit: Upper body and core. 3 rounds (11:32/12:39/14:35 mins, respectively) with a 1-min rest between rounds. For the Skull Crusher/Russian Twists combo, I went from the Skull Crusher rep straight into the Russian Twists, moving the dumbbells to my front. I did the Russian Twist reps in pyramid format. MEANING rep #1 Skull Crusher = 1 Russian Twist, rep #2 Skull Crusher = 2 Russian Twists, and so on. And because I guess I’m a sucker, left + right = 1 Russian Twist rep. Those were A LOT of reps. Count them. But I did it and it felt awesome everywhere.
