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 of Walking Lunges before each set of 

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.

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.

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

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).

10 Thrusters
10 Back Curl Lunge
10 Preacher Curl
10 Weighted Split Squat Jumps
10 Broad Jump Burpees

Blogilates: Lower Belly Flattener
Yoga by Candace for Tight Hips

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

Circuit (3 rounds)

10 Dive Bombers
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

10-lb dumbbells: Skull Crushers / Russian Twists
12-lb dumbbells: Crossover Bicep Curls 
*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.

WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Warm Up, Tabata: Jump Rope

Circuit (3 rounds)

10 Squat to Reverse Lunges (R/L)
10 Spider Drags
10/10 Bulgarian Squats
15 Diamond Pushups

Yoga by Candace for Balance

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

Equipment

15-lb dumbbells: Squat to Reverse Lunges
25-lb load: Spider Drags
12-lb dumbbells: Bulgarian Squats


Circuit: 3 rounds (8:40/13:23/12:22 mins, respectively) for 40 mins total. I took longer breaks between rounds (first 2-mins, then 3-mins) because, to be honest, it was waaay hot today and I wasn’t exactly enjoying it. Noteworthy: For the Squat to Reverse Lunges, I kept the weights on my shoulders. I did 2 Up/Down Plank reps on each Spider Drag rep, and “dragged” a box with 25-lbs worth of dumbbells inside. I finished with Yoga for Balance, and it was awesome and challenging and I did better than expected. *fist pump*

Circuit: 3 rounds (8:39/7:49/10:35 mins, respectively) with 60-90 secs break in between, for 30 minutes total. For the Suitcase Squats, I actually had the dumbbells on top of my shoulders (not to my side) and kept my other arm out for balance and going low. Kind of LIKE THIS. Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory.

*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.
