Planks, Pyramids, and Abs Oh My! by Jori

Couldn’t think of anything yesterday that’d leave my quads alone enough & thus had another rest day yesterday. My legs were still burning during 3rd move for Rounds 1 & 2 today. I’d previewed this up until the middle of the HIIT set & made notes & somehow lost the draft. I’m pretty sure that I wanted to make at least one slight modification but no … Continue reading Planks, Pyramids, and Abs Oh My! by Jori

I think it’s time to order new sneakers

One thing that’s great about the internet is u can look up when you bought something. I do HIIT, strength training & yoga @ home which is THE CHEAPEST form of exercise you can do. Even cut rate gyms involve gas money, and if you go downtown (which I’d never do) potentially parking. Never mind the fact that in today’s gyms, there’s often a base … Continue reading I think it’s time to order new sneakers

(most of) VOLUME BOOTY by Kristin R

My weights are still light for a “volume”, heavy rep lower body WO, but that’s just the way it is. There were places I could’ve gone heavier here today but did not. Oddly the yoga really worked my glutes this week and they are still recovering. Rearranged this & dropped the last two sets. Total time = 1hr, 12min. I could’ve gone a bit longer & done … Continue reading (most of) VOLUME BOOTY by Kristin R

Excellent, glorious Astanga yoga practice

I’d had an unintended rest day yesterday. I was downtown all morning and a large part of the afternoon, doing much postponed errands and then indulging in a rare bit of socializing¹ with friends. I’d planned a moderate group of Bender WOs that she’s got posted on her blog’s weekly schedule & thought I might do that today, since I didn’t get to it upon … Continue reading Excellent, glorious Astanga yoga practice

3 Bender HIIT sets & a little yoga

Finally getting to the WO I’d intended for early Thursday evening. Makes sense as I still have the three browser windows open & waiting. A moderate sounded good as I’m a bit stiff in the back from yesterday’s amazing feeling yoga. This was actually harder than I’d intended or expected. Yesterday’s yoga kicked my ass. I’d tagged this “moderate workout” but deleted that tag after finishing. … Continue reading 3 Bender HIIT sets & a little yoga

Ad lib yoga

Sore upper body!!! That’s the thing about not taking a rest day. Sometimes your WOs have unintended results. But I wanted to do something for my mindbody today. I’ve been working the chest really hard this week & yesterday’s upper body pushed it, even though it wasn’t a long routine. I’d intended to do an Astanga today but I could tell my pecs & shoulders were … Continue reading Ad lib yoga
