February Patron’s Choice Kettlebell Kraziness

From warm-up to cool-down this WO was about 51min. It took me 63min w/ my extra set, but shorter warm-up. Total time w/ the yoga after was 1hr, 17min. It’s unusually humid in Portland today, 63% in the office. That made things kind of “dewy”. February Patron’s Choice Kettlebell Kraziness Warm-up – 10/30×6=4min jump rope, easy jog. Since I decided to do 4 rounds of the … Continue reading February Patron’s Choice Kettlebell Kraziness

No Equipment Full Body Vacation Workout #1, 2

Lo and behold I ended up needing a true rest day yesterday. Wasn’t sure what to do today so decided to revisit one of my favorite Julia series. Forgot to look @ stop time but I only took a short break where indicated in the vid & then I did some yoga. Total time maybe 1hr, 15min. No Equipment Vacation Workout Series 2017 I’m pretty … Continue reading No Equipment Full Body Vacation Workout #1, 2

I’m going to call this an active recovery day

I looked back b/c it felt like I hadn’t had a rest day in a little while, and it’s been five days. Normally I’d take one, but I’m all into this shorter and/or more moderate theme right now. I like this summer trend of BW workouts too! Sure sometimes I use weights or bands here & there anyway but then that feels like extra credit. … Continue reading I’m going to call this an active recovery day

30 minute #1: No Equipment Cardio Burnout

So great to see a new shorter WO series from J, however many routines there ends up being. This way I can get in a quick something & not neglect my stretching completely. My total time today was 53min, with the non vinyasa yoga I did right after. I should’ve done 7 more minutes right? But then holy shit my legs were burning on that first … Continue reading 30 minute #1: No Equipment Cardio Burnout

Shoulders, Back and Bicep Burn by Kanchana

It’s really good that I finally ordered new sneakers, courtesy of kitten sales. I’d never been in love with my current pair of shoes, by Ryka. They don’t have much lateral support. I was noting the way my weight was falling during those 500 reps of feet-together jump rope! I only ever have 1-pair of current, workout shoes these days, in my west coast phase … Continue reading Shoulders, Back and Bicep Burn by Kanchana

Man antibiotics make me gimpy [updated]

Gimpy AF I felt a little stiff in the back for hours last night. I’d had the same sort of “seizing up” reaction that I got after Miami 2012, which had never happened before and was unfortunately an indication of a permanent change. Something got pushed too far… Even when things feel fine, my back cracks loudly, quite often, in forward bends that follow my … Continue reading Man antibiotics make me gimpy [updated]

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

(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
