Cheese is my weakness. Harry Potter is my strength.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (4 rounds)

10/10 Reverse Dumbbell Chop
15 Goblet Squat
10 Up/Down Plank Burpees
10 Wall Sit with Alternating Bicep Curls

Yoga by Candace: Abs and Gentle Yoga

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells DB Chop (one) / Goblet Squats (two)
12-lb dumbbells: Bicep Curls


Circuit: 4 rounds (5:15/7:23/7:40/8:06 mins, respectively) with 1-min of rest between rounds. This was a bit intense. Or at least it felt that way for me. I give myself kudos for getting back to it every time the 1-min break was over. For the Up/Down Plank Burpees, I did the Up/Down motion thingy after the each pushup. For the Alternating Bicep Curls, left + right = 1 rep. I changed the position of my legs for the Wall Sit on every round (regular, wide, narrow, regular…again.)

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Circuit: Today I was in a good mood, so I did this. I’m writing now still in a daze from Arrow’s Season 3 premiere (BECAUSE OMG!) but didn’t want to postpone the update. So, yeah, I did that. I forgot to time myself, but I didn’t take long breaks between rounds, moving fairly quickly from one to the other. For the Arm Raise combo, 1 Lateral Raise + 1 Front Raise = 1 rep.

Arrow is back tonight. I can’t properly function…but I’m so happy I may actually work out today.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope (Running in Place)

Circuit (3 rounds)

20 Skater Lunges
10/10 Single Leg Squat + Reach
20 Sumo Jacks
1-min AMRAP Prone Hamstring Curls

Blogilates: TOUGH LOVE Handles Workout
Blogilates: Amazing Upper Back & Leg Stretches

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb /10-lb dumbbells: Single Leg Squat + Reach (Uneven  Weight)
15-lb dumbbell: Hamstring Curls


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!

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope (High Knees)

Circuit (3 rounds)

30-secs Pendulum
20 Split Squat Jumps
15/15 Side Step Up & Leg Lift
20 Stability Ball Knee Tucks

Yoga by Candace Power Yoga Flow

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

8-lb dumbbells: Split Squat Jumps
15-lb dumbbell: Side Step Up & Leg Lift
Stability Ball


Circuit: 3 rounds (8:51/12:49/11:32 mins, respectively) with 2-mins of rest between rounds. I kept going back and forth whether to do something or not and kind of went for it last minute. I don’t know if it was the circuit or just the fact that it was extra hot today, but I was pretty out of breath and sweating like a pig (do pigs sweat a lot?) throughout the entire thing. I followed the Power Yoga at the end pretty well with the exception of the headstands and the arm balances in the flow. Held a Yoga Squat on those instead.

Rep count on the Tricep Pushup to Frogger mini-AMRAP: 14/10/8/10 reps per round, respectively. [Sort of disappointed on those numbers. Meh.] For the Arnold Presses at the end, I did sets of 8 because that was all I could handle at that point.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

20 Runner’s Lunges
10/10 Knee Tuck to Split Dog Hop
10/10 Bulgarian Squat + Hop
10/10 Side Bends

Yoga by Candace with a Block

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: Runner’s Lunges
20-lbs of weight: Side Bends


Circuit: Well, clearly, my workout schedule has been totally off, and sort of paid for it today. 3 rounds (7:19/8:29/12:29 mins, respectively) with 1-min break between round 1-2 and a 2-min break between rounds 2-3. Here’s the thing: when I stop working out for X reason, I don’t exactly ease my way back into it —bad Joan!— so…I pretty much got a bit queasy during the second round and a lot queasy on that third one. Um, yeah. I had to pace myself ridiculously on that last round…which was…ridiculous. But hey, I push myself to complete at least three rounds.
