Warm Up, 3-min AMRAP | Zuzka Light, Yoga Challenge
Circuit (3 rounds)
5/5 Side Crunches + 3 Pushups + 5 In N’ Out Squat Jumps
Single Leg Squat Reach: 15-lb dumbbell (on squatting leg side) and 10-lb dumbbell (on reaching arm side)
Snatch: 15-lb dumbbell
So, this is attempt #3 (?) at getting back into a consistent workout schedule. After my last attempt, I got a stomach bug and then it kind of went downhill from there again. Meh.
Circuit: This was a total body routine and it felt pretty darned draining. Like, my muscles could handle it, but my darned heart rate not so much. Which is good…but then it also kind of sucks when you feel like crap while exercising. I had to push through that third round because I was pretty much done with this thing by then. I took 3-mins long water break between rounds (don’t judge me) just so I could push through them with the best form possible. My time for each round was 7:20 mins (R1), 8:43 mins (R2) and 10:39 mins (R3). I completed all 3 rounds in around 33 minutes, water breaks included.
5-min AMRAP Challenge: Did 7 rounds total and was profusely panting (again!) through it. Short, but very intense. It also made me realize something I kinda knew: my current pushup strength sucks. Like, I have absolutely no desire to do a pushup fit test for some time because that’s just going to be an overwhelming setback from where I was months ago. I shake my head at myself! (But it’s okay.)
