Two more Zuzka sets & a tiny bit of yoga

It always seems like such a life or death struggle to get even a short WO in after work, and I don’t even work until late! But I did it, and that’s what counts. 2:40 2 minute jump rope buy in: Zuzka does this 30/30/30/30 with no rest, but she’s much better on the jump rope. I did it 10/30. I’d attempted the double-unders while … Continue reading Two more Zuzka sets & a tiny bit of yoga

First Astanga practice since May 6

And amazingly it was pretty good. Gods, did I need it. So much drama lately. It’s been pretty relentless since Wednesday, April 4th. Did a plein air session today I had some preliminary movement more than just lying about. I went downtown & painted for a bit. I’ve gotta research a parking spot next time. I went to do the same view as I’d done in … Continue reading First Astanga practice since May 6

Two sets of Zgym WOs & some yoga

OK my neck & traps are definitely sore, most likely from incorporating the new, 26lb kettlebell in SA moves and the upper body hammering yesterday. Decided I’d stick to plan to practice Astanga tomorrow. Today’s WO Warmup: (10/30×6=4min) jump rope. Then two Zgym WOs posted in this week’s schedule. 17:30 8 Minute Tabata #5 Did these as tabata pairs sets & it was fantastic, with a 30sec … Continue reading Two sets of Zgym WOs & some yoga

Quick HIIT, “laundry stairs” and a bit of yoga

Was considering doing just part of Michele’s latest WO, but since we’re on the eve of a 3-day weekend I decided to save it / do the whole thing @ once, later. 20-Minute Workout for Core, Arms and Legs +8lb vest, with Jesse & the vid as I was too pooped last night to bother w/ previewing. WO starts after 10:41. I started jumping rope … Continue reading Quick HIIT, “laundry stairs” and a bit of yoga

Cardio Shred #42 X, abs & a little yoga

It was a happy hump day! I exercised! And it was good. Warmup: (10/30×6=4min) jump rope Not that I’d needed any “warming”, in the temperature sense, as it was 81-degrees in the room when I started. Cardio Shred #42 X I did this one already! Didn’t notice until I started, so I changed one move & just carried on.  1. Pull Ups x 5 Did the correct, … Continue reading Cardio Shred #42 X, abs & a little yoga

Yoga, 2 rounds HIIT, more yoga

It’s been a full two weeks since my last Astanga practice. And I made myself sore throwing an ustrasana into my first HIIT yesterday. Sometimes that works well; sometimes it doesn’t. Yoga: Suryas & fundamentals, w/ hanuman, & first 3 poses of primary. 29:20min Then a break to put on sneakers & arrange space for part 2. 15 Minute Fat Burn #5 X (Zgym) 2 rounds, 1st … Continue reading Yoga, 2 rounds HIIT, more yoga
