An adapted section of a Pyramid Shred

This was done recently by “that guy who somehow does one Julia WO per day”. He always shares his choices in the FB group too. The vid is an hour and 20 and he somehow did the routine in 72min, whereas I look at a Julia vid that long & know immediately it’s something I’m unlikely to finish, lol. Course J just uploaded two videos to … Continue reading An adapted section of a Pyramid Shred

PHAT Workout, abs burnout & a little yoga

Wasn’t sure what to do today & this popped up in my recommended. I decided it looked good & basic but I did not go as heavy as I could. Moderate weights feel good right now.

I’m … Continue reading PHAT Workout, abs burnout & a little yoga

The Band & BOSU Total Body Workout, 2

Wasn’t sure what to do today. Yoga would be good maybe, but I’m starting to accept that I’m not in the mood for Astanga even just once a week these days. Decided to revisit a new version of Michele’s last WO. I did it in the order of the three videos the first time. Today I shaved off one set in order to make sure … Continue reading The Band & BOSU Total Body Workout, 2

The Band & BOSU Total Body Workout

I was really sore from yesterday’s Astanga, oddly especially in my biceps & a bit in the shoulders. I had an extra warm-up, helping with the tree trimming clean-up today. A husband & wife duo came over to take care of two problems (though now I’m going to totally be flashing one of the neighbours – sitting on the toilet facing their house even – I’ve … Continue reading The Band & BOSU Total Body Workout

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]

Some Astanga, a reps set w/ jump rope & more yoga

Somehow failed to post this Wednesday Was looking at my WOs of the week this morning. Yesterday was an intense upper body. The day before that was an Astanga bail & Bender fitness I somehow didn’t post. [This has happened twice lately, where I remember writing about xyz but there is no draft online.] Monday’s was an intense Julia session. This isn’t important to go … Continue reading Some Astanga, a reps set w/ jump rope & more yoga

2019 True Tabata & Equipment Strength

Wasn’t gonna work out today but then there was more unnecessary, vindictive drama, and then I wasn’t doing anything else. But it was 82 degrees in the room when I started. It actually didn’t get any hotter though & actually dropped a degree while I was going, b/c I had the blinds down & door open. I trimmed a round off two rep-based sets and three … Continue reading 2019 True Tabata & Equipment Strength
