My Saturday & today’s workout

Well! I’ve had a very productive Saturday so far.

  1. A Saturn / Mars spell outside in the magic circle (after my daily chant to Ganesh & LBRP), because is the deck is stacked against you, sometimes you just need to give it a little, metaphysical nudge.
  2. Laundry.
  3. Typography, for the album cover I also illustrated. Did 6 different text treatments & DropBoxed them to client.
  4. Watering: greenhouse, herb garden, southern side strip of roses & grass. Got the cats outside for it & did some Insta.
  5. Harvested some wild garlic from the magic circle.
  6. Did some reading. Am really enjoying my current read. So well written. And by a PDX based author!

I can’t tell if I’m getting lazier or smarter, but knowing that I’m going to Astanga tomorrow (which takes close to 2 hours) & the beautiful weather… I was gonna do another, milder looking Zgym set, but the two kicked my ass & I thought “Suryas & fundamentals (yoga)!” and then, meh, let’s stretch for like 5 min & take a shower.



2 3 Zgyms

15 Minute Fat Burn #1

15/45 +8lb vest 

  1. 180 Jump to Competition Burpee
  2. Mat Jumps Plank Jack Transformers I just hate this move for whatever reason & she includes them a lot! LOL. Switch.
  3. Split Jump To Sumo Squat
  4. Mountain Climber (x4) to Clapping Push Up
  5. Backward Lunge Front Kick to Curtsy Lunge Side Kick alt.
  6. One Arm Plank Jump Burpee to Round Kick alt.
  7. Knee Slider to Cross Plank jump alt.
  8. Kick – Knee _ Plank Jack Push Ups alt.
  9. Dive Bomber to Jump Tuck I have to stop making the connection bet elbow & thigh b/c I hit too hard! LOL. Could feel it all the way thru rest of set after only one connect.
  10. Forward / Back lunge – jump lunge
  11. Side Lunge Knee tuck (x3) / side lunge jump

  13. Donkey kick / kick through

(inspired by) Summer Shred #3 X

Workout Breakdown My time in my pumped up version was 36min, start to finish.

buy in: 8 4 min Tabata – Pull-ups / chin-ups & pike abs on sliders Split Jumps / Mountain Climbers I doubled the time to be a full length tabata & changed the moves, to suit what I felt like working on. 


x6 I changed this entire WO! This routine I gave 3 different moves for the first two moves, to repeat each a single time, rather than six times. Was regretting my decision to double this, sidling up the half-way mark, but I made it, with no assistance band.

√, √, √, √, √, √

• Step up, knee up x 20 15s
• Box squat BL sandbag
• SL DL, 10 ea 20s

• Elevated feet – knee to same side elbow then opp elbow alt Plank Hold – 1 min
• Straight abs – feet under weights
• Rev curls – 3lbs bet feet
Do each of these ab moves 2x for the minute. I used my gymboss set in the single 10/60 interval I typically use for my non-vinyasa yoga poses

DBUs – 10/30 seconds After 6 bounces. Great progress here! I go along & then choke in the last 10 seconds, but that just means that 25 counts or so is current max.


Buy out: Handstand – 1 minute I decided to do mine full balance. This means I was near enough to a wall not to flip but I didn’t touch it w/ my feet once. Caught my balance & held, often feet apart, as long as possible. Came down 3x & got right back up
