BodyRock HIITMax Week #4 & some yoga

There’s something to be said to be doing basic moves.

Doing four, 50-second intervals of mountain climbers, chair lunges & plank jacks just killed me. Granted I’d worked out pretty hard yesterday. I was trying to do something more moderate, lol, but ended up with this. I’ve done all of the HIITmax WOs at least once, more of them more than twice. They get a little more personalized but that of course is fine.

Also if moves are basic and easy to remember, it’s easier to do shorter resting intervals. I did only 10 seconds rest / transition and 30 bet sets, which was enough time to rearrange my small space as necessary for the next couplet. And my HR never got time to slow down very much.

I was a bit more thorough in the stretching today!
