Life can be surprising

I have learned something about cat breeding and  blame If someone seems neurotic and / or exceedingly particular, do not provide them with lengthy, subjective personality descriptions when questioned. Provide a concise, one-time personal impression and then insist they visit as many times and interact as much as it takes to form their own opinions. Both beauty and charm are indeed in the eye of the … Continue reading Life can be surprising

JB, Shoulders Back & Biceps 1 & yoga

With added jump rope I’m glad I waited a day to do this! I wouldn’t have wanted to do any jumping yesterday, but my neck felt so much better this morning, so I added 30 second jump rope intervals at the end of every round for all three, 4x through sets. I was going to do all easy jog, which is the easiest way for me … Continue reading JB, Shoulders Back & Biceps 1 & yoga

I’m going to have to call today a rest day. It was supposed to have been a recovery WO.

Woke up a mess this morning Slept wrong again. This happens every so often when I’m sharing the pillow with Sir Henry and stay in one position too long. (It’s his fault!)  I found out when getting my coffee fixings downstairs that it hurts to yawn. Checked Jamie’s Insta & found today’s routine is a shoulders, back & biceps, but on reading the breakdown the … Continue reading I’m going to have to call today a rest day.

JB, Legs 2 & Yoga

I’ve decided to check JB’s Insta daily & mostly follow along for a bit, days I exercise anyway.  She posted a legs today. I decided to do one she posted last month, that I’d saved but procrastinated on. I added a warm-up, my 4min of jump rope intervals. Jamie’s routine took 47min, without my added warm-up. I followed it with about 20min yoga. I really … Continue reading JB, Legs 2 & Yoga

Half upper body (JB, Chest & Triceps 1) & half yoga (Astangesque)

I took at look at this & the starting w/ 50 push-ups thing & wasn’t thrilled, but thought I’d give it a go. (Today I have my comments as text after the image, but I think I like side by side better so I’ll go back to that for next time.) Total time = 38min, and it felt moderate, but I did some yoga after. 50 Pushups: minimal … Continue reading Half upper body (JB, Chest & Triceps 1) & half yoga (Astangesque)

JB, Core 3-1, followed by a seated meditation

Another love, and while this say it’s a core there’s plenty on the booty, or at least it felt that way to me. The reps sets were hard enough too that having 4min sets opening & closing was nice. I finished in 56min. Total time was probably 58min b/c I did just a couple stretches. Then I changed into a dry top & did a … Continue reading JB, Core 3-1, followed by a seated meditation

30 Minute Workout #5: No Equipment HIIT + Ass & thighs

Well! I’ve gotten way into doing JB’s area specific WOs lately, but today I looked at like three different leg WOs and nothing was completely grabbing me, but in the meantime I’d seen that Julia just posted what looks like her most moderate WO in ages, like literally years. I’ve already met my quota of five sessions for the week too. I could take a … Continue reading 30 Minute Workout #5: No Equipment HIIT + Ass & thighs

JB, Legs 1

OMG yes! This is the answer, more Jamie Bryan targeted workouts. It’s not that much work to figure out the breakdowns, and so what if you make little errors. My legs seemed weak today. I’m surprised I got a session out of myself today TBH, because I was up to Podunkian shenanigans last night. Time = 1hr. But this felt like a 90min workout I swear. The legs routine … Continue reading JB, Legs 1
