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

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (4 rounds)

1-min AMRAP Tricep Pushup to Frogger
12 Plie Squats
10 Elevated Pike Pushups
10 per side Wall Sit with Alternating Bicep Curls

Bonus: 4 sets of Seated Arnold Press*
Yoga by Candace for Back Strength & Flexibility

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

15-lb dumbbells: Plie Squats / Arnold Presses
12-lb dumbbells: Bicep Curls
*Stability Ball


Circuit: A bit sore from yesterday, particularly butt (yay!) and obliques. For today, 4 rounds (6:36/8:20/8:14/8:18 mins, respectively) with 1-min of rest between rounds. 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.

Obsessively trying to eat strictly healthy food and micromanaging all your meals is NOT healthy. Being absolutely terrified of certain foods because they are not 100% “clean” is NOT healthy. Feeling bad for enjoying food, regardless of its nutritional value, is NOT HEALTHY.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

15 Goblet Squats
10 Plank Jack (2x) + Donkey Kick + Single Leg Pushup
10 Stiff Legged Deadlift to Isometric Figure 4 Squat
20 Jujitsu Step-Throughs

Body Rock, 2x: 5-Day Challenge, Day 3 Burnout (Shoulders)
Yoga by Candace for Chest & Shoulders

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: Goblet Squats, Deadlifts and Figure 4s
2-lbs dumbbells: BodyRock Burnout


Circuit
: 3 rounds (9:47/10:24/11:18 mins, respectively) with 90-secs break between rounds. I’m coming off a week where I did noting, so I took longer breaks between rounds. Survival tactic. I followed the circuit with a quick shoulder burnout video from BodyRock. I did it twice, pre- and post- yoga.

Combos Explained:

2 Plank Jack + 1 Donkey Kick+ 1 Single Leg Pushup = 1 rep: I did the Jack and the Butt Kick back-to-back on low plank position, and then went up to high plank position for the pushup.  

1 Deadlift + 1 Figure 4 = 1 rep. I performed the Deadlift and alternated legs on the Figure 4s, holding each Figure 4 Squat for 5-secs.

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

Circuit (4 rounds)

1-min AMRAP Competition Burpees
10/10 Leg Swing* to Pike Pushup
15 Reverse Plank to Tricep Dip*
10/10 Concentration Curls**

Blogilates: Brokenhearted Ab Challenge
Yoga by Candace for Chest & Shoulders

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

12-lb dumbbell: Concentration Curls
*Chair / **Stability Ball


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!

10/10 Uneven Squats*
15/15 Pike Leg Lifts

Bonus: Blogilates’ Beach Ready Butt Challenge
Yoga by Candace Post-Run Sequence

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: Walking Lunges + Uneven Squats
*Step stool


Circuit: 4 rounds (~6:00/6:53/7:19/7:47 mins, respectively) with 1-min break in between. The circuit was built around the Walking Lunges, all moves focusing on the lower body. 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.

Mini Ball 


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.
