Had been planning to tack on the glutes section of this WO to last Thursday’s Astanga, but but I got too busy w/ cat show prep for a full 2-hour WO. The yoga took 90min (like usual for even a chop-chop practice) and I really needed to stop what I was doing to get ready. Now that I have a job and (temporarily) a long … Continue reading Ultimate Freestyle Booty Workout
No stats Was gonna do some thigh work after but my iPhone had cut out b/c I left it charging in a sun puddle & it overheated. Anyway was like 90min, roughly. Good practice. Continue reading Astanga Yoga !
Such a little, teeny-eeny burn, lol. If the Wahoo says 676 calories that means more like 300 or so. But it’s ok. I’d have taken a rest either today or yesterday if not for the fact that I’m about to be much busier. Anyway I need to detach from this attachment to “super burns” and learn to be satisfied with moving my body. Pure HIIT … Continue reading HIIT & thighs
Picked out a Lisa WO’s w/out previewing. Wish she included a breakdown but it ain’t happening. We are lucky to be able to get a few, free YouTube’s, every now & then. I’m going to have to rely on diet more than sheer exercise for a little while, so getting in a quick WO is better than nothing. It might even get to be like … Continue reading Quick HIIT & abs burnout
I wasn’t in the mood but I’m going to have at least a month, probably longer, of only working out twice a week. It’ll be the longest break ever in regular exercise since maybe freshman year at RISD! Will be interesting. Full Body HIIT AND REP PYRAMID 10 reps / HIIT 50:10 8 reps / HIIT 40:10 6 reps / HIIT 30:10 4 reps / … Continue reading Full Body HIIT AND REP PYRAMID
Didn’t feel like working out today. Amazingly, a good stretch (Astanga) can make me feel more sore the next day than a heavy legs set. It’s true I don’t have access to heavier weights. I should be using 25s for some things. But still… Previewed part of this Lisa routine awhile back & thought, Meh. I’m not really into throwing punches. I don’t mind a few … Continue reading Full Body Combat & Bonus Combat Abs
I’d hammered both upper and lower body this week and hadn’t stretched much at all as well! But it’s getting warmer in Portland again, and this time of year the sun shines on the windows of my end of the front hall. That might’ve helped. No jump rope warm-up. Didn’t feel like jumping today. Poses Comments Suryas & Standing Fundamentals w/ standing arches in Surya … Continue reading Excellent and soothing Astanga
Even slower than the first time, but I’d upped my weights Note to self: repeat this WO doing maybe 3 rounds each superset & MAY also cutting down the HIIT a little too, 3x each move for a 7½min cardio repeat. I only say that b/c I just watched a video on the evils of too much pure cardio. Doesn’t happen all that often, but … Continue reading Superset Legs #4 and Tabata HIIT, x2
Set my alarm for 6:20, to wake up to Henry snuggles and kisses and the first hour of the day, which is also ruled by Jupiter. May as well do this on the Thursdays of a waxing moon. I found a great resource for the Thoth deck specifically! A soft-spoken Englishman with a penchant for nail polish, who films with his head cropped out of … Continue reading Happy Thursday, Jupiter & Sachiel day!
Well! That was a bit ridic for an upper body WO, but I had some good energy today. If things go like I imagine, then I will only be working out twice a week for awhile.
