Joan works out. Joan geeks out. Cheese is my weakness. Harry Potter is my strength.

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (4 rounds)

10 Mule Kick to Jujitsu Step-Through (2x)
20 Globe Squatters
25 Floor Pullups*
10 Sumo Deadlifts

Challenge Circuit

Blogilates: 4-mins Abs and Thighs
Song Challenge: Lateral Walking*
1-min Plank (3x, 1-min rest between them)

Blogilates: Stretches for Chilling Out

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: Globe Squatters (one) / Sumo Deadlift (two)
*Resistance Band


Circuit: Total body plus cardio. 4 rounds (6:04/7:36/7:29/7:31 mins, respectively) with 1-min breaks in between for 32 mins total. I really tried to get some height on the mule kicks and went straight into the jujitsu step-throughs (one on each side). That combo counted for 1 rep.

Challenge Circuit: The 4-min Abs and Thighs Challenge burned sooo badly. OMG, Cassey Ho. I replayed the video and did the Lateral Walking down and up my corridor for the duration of the song. [I held the Resistance Band THIS WAY.] Then finished with planks and stretching.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

10 Supergirl Pushups
12 Skull Crusher Squats
10 Deadman Crab Toe Touches
15 Seated* Lat Pull Down** to Row**

Isometric Intervals

Blogilates: Stretching for Flexibility

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbell: Skull Crusher Squats
*Stability Ball / **Resistance Band


Circuit: 4 rounds for 34 mins, focusing on upper body and core. My triceps were feeling THIS. Those first 3 moves, back-to-back, did things to them. I followed that with a few rounds of isometric moves. I switched the position of my legs for each Wall Sit (narrow, regular, wide) and aimed to hold it for 1-min straight…but that didn’t exactly happen. 40/30/30 secs straight (respectively) was more of the reality. Wall Sits burn like hell, dude. So good.

ARFit: Abs & Legs with Joel Harper
Yoga by Candace for Strength and Flexibility

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment & Modifications

* = modified from the original circuit
Plank Drag = 25-lbs (worth of dumbbells in a box) + friction
Paper plates, Stability Ball, Mini-ball


Today’s routines was…not only an experiment but a revelation that I no longer know how to properly exercise with shoes. I tried, because by experience, I know that paper plates = friction & rug burn. Except the shoes weren’t really helping as much as getting in my way. Even the rope jumping felt awkward. So after one pitiful round, I made the executive decision to stop, get rid of the shoes, and create a contraption of paper plates and duck tape to use instead. Ha! It didn’t look pretty, but it worked. Long story short, I used that. I did the intervals 4 times through. Felt it in my quads, core, arms and shoulders. I followed that with an old ARFit video that uses a mini-ball and focuses on core and legs. That one also burned like hell.

My friend, Sako, is currently in the middle of a personal fitness challenge and you can cheer her on and see her routines on her FB page, SakoBFit

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

10/10 Lateral Step Ups
10 Wiper Plank
10 Jumping Lunge to Step Up
10/10 Window Washer Leg Swing
10 Elevator Step Up

Blogilates: 5-mins Abs Express
TIU: Stretch & Release

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: all Step Up variations
Chair


Circuit: Since I used the 15-lb DBs for the Step Ups, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to go that fast even if I tried. I focused on form (and breathing and wiping the sweat off me). I did 3 rounds (12:11/15:22/18:33 mins, respectively), with breaks between rounds around 1-2 mins.

For the Wiper Planks, 1 rep = left side + right side wiper. For both the Wiper Plank and the Window Washers, I used the Chair and kept my feet on it (Decline Plank position). On the Window Washers, I brought my toe to touch the floor and swung back the leg squeezing my booty and core. [This is one of my favorite moves. The use of the chair on this one makes it rock my world.] For the Jumping Lunge to Step Up —in case it is not clear, I did a weighted Jumping Lunge, and then used the back leg to do the weighted Step Ups. For the Elevator, I repeated that, except on the Step Up there’s an added Hammer Curl and Shoulder Press, while balancing on one leg. Super challenging.

Sarah Fit: Arm Slimming Routine
Blogilates: Broom Burn Workout
Yoga by Candace for Chest

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

2/5-lbs dumbbells for Sarah Fit’s routine


Circuit: As many reps as possible on each round…which added up to a whole lotta reps. The moves where focused on core and upper body for the most part. Very good use of 10-minutes.

Sarah Fit/Blogilates: Both videos feature Barre-inspired moves, low weight/high reps routines, but don’t take that for lack of sweat & burn.

Sometimes good workouts have terribly misleading, questionable titles. That’s just the sad reality we have to live with.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

ZWOW 60 (3 rounds)

10 Goblet Squat Twists
10 Cross Leg Pushups
15/15 Cross Body Kicks
10 4-point Punches
10 Jump Over Bench Broad Jumps

Blogilates: Pippa’s Bum Workout
Yoga by Candace for Tight Legs

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

20-lb dumbbell: Squat
8-lb dumbbells: 4-point Punches


ZWOW/Blogilates: 3 rounds for time took me 15:56 mins to complete. I technically beat my personal best time (16:40 mins), though I didn’t realized until I was done that I had used 10-lb dumbbells for the Punches then. But since I have not beaten any personal best record in whole lotta time, I’ll take this. I did Broad Jumps in substitution of the Jumps Over the Bench because…I don’t have a bench in the middle of my room. Last time, I jumped over a kettlebell, so I guess I upgraded that one. Makes up for the Punches. I finished with one of my favorite butt routines from Blogilates, and then some yoga stretching.

If you haven’t notice, I’ve been incorporating more yoga into my routines. I’m hoping to improve my balance and flexibility so I figured a bit of more yoga (despite not being so great at it) would help. Also, all these Jump Rope warm ups have really improved my skipping. That has me really excited. I’ll tackle that 1000 skips for time challenge again soon enough. Ah!
