Summer Shred #12

Slightly delayed because the 96 Suburu I drive to work died on me as I was idling, 5min from home, waiting to turn right.

Was going to do this one yesterday, but then decided to take a break & relax after work with Charlie. Was also going to do another set, but considering… I thought it was enough to get a sweat in at all.


Summer Shred #12

Buy in x2: time = 5:09

  1. Dragon hold x15 sec Get into a downdog w/ toes on ground & feet on wall. Bend elbows & hold.

  1. Plank Row Push Ups 15s. Row-row-tricep push-up
  2. Rocky Sit Ups 10s. Arms in bicep curl position. Sit up & punch w/ both arms.

  6. Rocky Sit Ups

Tabata Pairs #3

OK, ya I just started my 3rd month of Zgym, but I put an alert in my iCal to cancel at the end of it. There is just no need! If just one of these five, Tabata pairs WOs can make five Zgym Tabata routines, for instance, I need to put aside my ego issues and start sampling.

I should try joining Julia on Patreon too, only, back to the ego issues – I just don’t have time to do her WO’s 3 or more times a week. I fall short in way too many areas as it is right now. I don’t want to give myself any added psychological pressure.

I probably shouldn’t have done any Julia today though, after a hard routine yesterday in so long it was unfamiliar. I had the clunkiest yoga in recent memory. Dropped myself on ass standing from wheel the first time. Hadn’t done that in years. I’d just ceased to pay attention. Turned on some lights & started again and that helped. I was going to skip the ticks but didn’t them anyway which was good.

Whatever it was good that I did it but doing the few more of the easy 2nd poses I normally do would’ve been better than a longer warmup w/ too much upper body.



Tabata Pairs #3, sets 1 & 2 only

Each Tabata pair is 20:10 8x (4 minutes).

Group 1: 8lb weighted vest & 20s 
1. Front alt curtsy lunges

Tabata Pairs Workout #1

When I was previewing this I thought, OMG! A Zgym WO would be like 2 of these sets max. Not TEN!

I love how the moves are so simple & I’m so familiar w/ Julia’s style that I only had to partially preview. I looked at each move of set one & checked out the 2nd move of set 4. And then I thought, I better just get going. All those complex, burpee challenge moves in sets of 20! Will take me a long time.

Good thing yesterday’s WO was so teeny-tiny minimal!



Tabata Pairs Workout #1

  • Each 4min Tabata group is essentially a warm-up for the challenge move reps.

Group 1+2lb wrist weights
1. SA chest press on bench Alt single arm pushups 20s Julia does from knees but it’s awkward & I didn’t wanna have that be an immediate move w/out warm-up. So I swapped a more controlled, equivalent move.
2. Switch lunges + rocket

Challenge Move: 20 switch mtm climbers with weights 10s. no wrist weights. Weights on the floor so that hands are in reg push-up position (on weights). Switch feet jump & stand to knee-up. Alt

Group 2:
1. Jack pushups
2. Star jumps

Challenge Move: 20 star jump/jack burpees Ugh! lol

Group 3:
1. Heel clicks
2. Clean and presses 20s

Challenge move: 20 broad jump & 180 jump spin 20s on either end of the mat

Group 4:
1. Tricep pushups
2. Back lunge and chops 20lb weight held in both hands – chop toward outside of front, bent leg 

Challenge move: 50 star tricep switch lunges Switch lunge w/ chop to OH tricep Had to pause to re-review this move. So hard. Made it to 20 w/ 10s & then dropped to 2lb wrist weights & 5s

Group 5:
1. Flying mtn climbers
2. Jugglers

Challenge Move: 50 fast feet up and down off of box 25 leading w/ 1 leg b4 switch. Really pushed it on the pace here.

Group 6:
1. Heavy weight squats 35lb kettlebell & 26lb kettlebell, alt hands per round
2. Box jump

Challenge Move: 20 weighted box squat jumps + squat and press 20s + ppl band. Squat & hammer curl weights while standing. Oh press. Rtrn same way. Hadn’t previewed this particular move but I didn’t wanna jump w/ heavy weights or drop weight for the squat & press, so swapped for a similar Julia move.

Group 7This felt like the first “rest” tabata, lol. I stuck to same supporting leg for the tabata & switched to alt for the (ugh) burpees
1. Pistol roll backs
2. 3 pts knee tucks in plank

Challenge Moves: 20 Pistol down single leg burpees Was so awkward the 1st one I hadda pause my music & consult the vid to make sure I was doing it right. Yes! Julia says u don’t have to pistol back up, but after you get down & rest butt on thigh, you have to (at least I do) come ½ way up to swing that front leg back for the SL push-up. Then sure you jump fwd & come up for a (by now minimal) SL jump.

Group 8:
1. sumo squat jumps bodyweight
2. heavy weight curtsy lunges 20s Normally I’d do BL sandbag. But I didn’t wanna do that much loading & unloading (before every other interval). Also didn’t wanna change first move to a non jumping sumo & keep it up there the whole time. Strains the tendons just a bit & left side is wonkier than usual this week. 

Challenge Moves: 50 curtsy lunge heel clicks Wasn’t sure I was doing this right, but at this point who cared? I think I should cancel Zgym after this month I’m on (I think I just refreshed) & just break Julia WOs into smaller chunks. Like, a quarter of this would be good for after work, lol.

Group 9:
1. Elv pushups + double leg tuck +2lb ankle weights for the tabata only
2. T stands + toe taps

Challenge Move: 20 oblique burpees Was gonna skip the push-up but didn’t. 20 of these seemed cruel at this point.

Group 10:
1. V abs 3lbs bet feet
2. lizard hops and lunges

Challenge Moves: 50 chest press + leg raises On bench – first 20 reps w/ 20s. Chest was tired from the 1st tabata w/ extra weight & big range of motion. So dropped to 15s & 2lbs ankle weights for last 30. Made the abs work harder & gave the chest a break.

Time 1:43 for what was an hour video. And the rest in this series are all over an hour! But ya I felt compelled to finish. Which is why I’d signed up for Zgym, lol. Sometimes better to feel like you’re adding on over cutting short.

So ya I just put away my equipment & blogged this w/out stretching @ all b/c had to get ready for a late lunch.
















Upper Body & Abs Inferno

Well! Another bad sleeping night, but I made it in early, ate lunch at my desk and left at 3. Got in a load of laundry! Woot. That’s an achievement. I wanna have a laundry in my (modern, spacious, clean) bathroom again someday.

If TIKR says I burned 317 I basically burned as much as I would chewing!? LOL. Meh. I did something anyway.


Warm-up: Jump rope 10/30×6=4min. Not that I need to get “warmer” of course, but this particular Zuzka set is a tiny amount of work.

Upper Body & Abs Inferno

x3 rounds added an extra round – w/ the jump rope got me close to 20 working minutes. Ha ha. Too little but oh well.

  1. Elevated Criss Cross Push ups x10 Feet on bench. Bring one leg under body, extended underneath & across the body, toes resting lightly on floor. Alt sides.
  2. Handstand scissors x10 Handstand about 1.5′ from wall, touching w/ one leg. Switch in controlled fashion. Totally NBD & too easy. On my extra, 3rd round I changed it to handstand shoulder taps.
  3. Wide grip pull up / normal grip hanging leg raise / normal grip pull up x3 sets She switches grip from wide to reg grip while hanging. My bar is really close to the ground… Tried putting hands on outer edges of bar first. Nope! Too hard. Was able to change grip mid air bet first 2 parts but I had to put feet down to reset for reg pull-up.
  4. Pigeon slide / frog slide x10 alt. legs Pick up one foot & bend knee, SL pike abs. Then frog slide feet to outside hands. Alt the SL first move.

I did the stretching part, too, which I normally don’t bother with. The hip flexor stretch was good for me! With the wheel push-ups, I came sloppily to standing on the 2nd one, lol. Would’ve been better for me to walk in before each push-up. But whatevs. The wide legged pose (upavistha konasana) is so easy for me. Even w/ tight thighs I can put my belly right on the floor. I got in that, a parighasana var & upavistha konasana A in the same time, at relaxed pace.

Summer Shred #35 & some yoga

I’ve gotta buy a fucking oscillating fan

[EDIT UPDATE] In a better mood now but it took some doing.

I had a mini break for the pull-ups. You even step into the hall & it’s cooler than this room.


Buy-in: 25 competition burpees

Part 1 – HIIT 45/15 sec (4 min) ppl Xband It’d have been good to have repeated this set at the end, but so hot.. didn’t care.

  2. Stay Low Leg Lift w/Overhead Press 10s
  3. Weighted Jump Jack Squat 20s (single dumbbell @ chest)

Summer Shred #10 & a little yoga

Told myself I didn’t have to work out tonight, as I was leaving the office, and then I did anyway. What else do I have to do?


Summer Shred #10

Workout Breakdown

1. Split Jumps x6, 1=1 / Mountain Climbers (the hopping front foot fwd method) ladder

(reps are 2=1 here) 10 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 30 – 25 – 20 – 15 – 10 (takes Z about 9.5min. Mine was 8:07!)

2. Surya A w/ Hanuman: 10/30 intervals of standing arch, uttana, up dog, down dog, hanuman one side then the other, alt which you start with – 2x, 8min Up dog / down dog / Crescent pose x 10

3. Pendulum to Swing x20 26lb kettlebell. Felt like I was cheating w/ 26, like I should’ve used the 35lb-er & have had to take breaks.

4. Russian twist x 4 / (turning to opp side that u put the bell down on) Kick through (step fwd w/ that side leg) push up to plank jump fwd & back. (turn back to be on butt) x 5 on each side

5. Pendulum to Swing x20. Oh but I forgot there were 2 sets! Went lower in the squat this 2nd set, to challenge myelf.

6. Tabata – 4 min – high knees (jump rope) / commando push ups

buy out: 1 minute handstand I do mine freestanding, but close to a wall so that I don’t run the risk of flipping when not yogically warmed up enough. 40sec first go and then up again for 20+. I can hold a freestanding handstand in the middle of the room but it’s easier in the context of an astanga practice.


My favorite finishers. Took awhile extra on my neck as it was a little sore, past couple days.

Oh Baby Those Thighs Workout

Was happy to see this posted!! Previewed just one round of the warm-up & then stopped b/c 1.) I know I’ll like the WO and 2.) on the wknd I can pause to preview & make notes & take as looong as I wanna take.

1. Right Front Bench Lunge (Overhead Press)/Left Reverse Lunge (Tricep Ext) 15x 10lb dumbbells + 2lb wrist weights. This was way heavy for using 2 tens but I hadn’t previewed & imagined a SA move for some reason. I stuck w/ it for 2 rounds b/c I’d started that way but 10s would’ve been sufficient!
2. Left Front Bench Lunge (Bicep Curl)/Left Right Reverse Lunge (Press Overhead) 15x Accidentally did both 1 and 2 with the same leg supporting throughout, whereas I was supposed to alt legs in @ least move 2. But that’s ok. I realized my goof but kept it consistent w/ the 2 rounds

Circuit 3: 2 Rounds @ 45:50 in vid. I was past 57. Pooping out in the by now 80-degree room lol. Did 2nd round along w/ music again. Gives me an extra break b/c after I type notes then I have to find the next starting place.
1. Left Side Lunge – Turn to Right & Reverse Left Lunge
(Right Arm Rear Flye Left Arm to Front Raise) 15x 1st rnd – 10s, but I’d been feeling the circuits more in my upper body. 2nd rnd – dropped to 5s but added 8lb vest.
2. Right Side Lunge – Turn to Left & Reverse Right Lunge
(Left Arm Rear Flye/Right Arm Front Raise) 15x
3. Dumbbell or Band Bicep Curl to Front Punches 15x 10s – too heavy for a good extension in the front punch, esp by this point, so changed to alt SA after like the 3rd rep.

(Banded) Hop to Plank (Hold) Plank Jack & hop to Squat Step out Right & tap hand to foot/then left & tap hand to foot 10x Orng Xband

6. Seated – Heels wide on floor & V-up w/feet tapping together

Time = 1hr 43  So I turned off vid & did like a really quick stretch, lol. Is ok b/c tomorrow’s long WO will be another astanga, this time w/ no Zgym warm-up but, if anything, 4min of jump rope. My left elbow situation is a little pissed at me these days, so…

Summer Shred #8 & a full Astanga

First the Monday Zgym WO. I’d only previewed one before & didn’t want to spend too much time exercising. But today? I can do whatever.

The new beloved

Still getting to know my iMac & feeling inspired. I woke up this morning and, despite the quantities of good, red wine consumed during Charlie’s birthday dinner, immediately started design concepting. Working on uploading files carefully – in a very organized fashion – into my new, clean docs.

One thing on my list of “to dos” was to get my scanner driver on there, but it’s already there. First time ever for that! I’ll do the Wacom later. Since I’ve got three inputs on this machine I don’t bother bringing my tablet home from work every day, but actually I might want to for a 3-4 hour tile build session. I wonder if the pen works with my trackpad! I’ll check. I’ll bring it home & get that installed…

The Workout


Summer Shred #8

This was my warm-up. Time = 28ish w/ notes & breaks

x7 Round Ladder 8:35. Not sure if the first move was 1=1 since I previewed days ago but that was a long enough first part for me!

  • Frog Hop / Spider Knee 1=1 x10 Frog up fwd. Knee to outside same side arm. Frog hop & other side = 1. So u do it 70x.
  • Jump Lunge – ladder: 10 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 20 – 15 – 10

Jump rope: 30 sec side hops I’d thought this would be harder in terms of coordination but it wasn’t. Still the 2:40 set jacked me up so high I immediately decided on 15sec recovery time for the next one, w/ the DUs. / 30 sec high knees x 2
Z does continual intervals 30/30×2. I did 10/30×4-2:40min.

Sumo / rockstar / sumo / jump tuck x10

Weighted reverse burpees to plank rows x10 15s, but not doing the punch up OHs like Z, who’s using 12s. Kept weights down by sides for a squat hop. Kicked my ASS. Did ½ leading w/ LA row & then took a break to sit down & write this.

Jump rope: 30 sec Double unders / 30 sec scissors x2 15/30×4-3:00min Extra rest didn’t help for the DUs. Even though is early is 77 muggy degrees in the office. It’s a suddenly high, hello July level of humidity (for PDX). I got 6 in the first round and only 3 in the 2nd. LOL. But I tried! I’m better when not as hot.

The Mini Band Thigh Burning Workout

Can’t believe how much stuff I got done this morning, chiefly being the set-up of my brand new iMac. Was working on a little timeframe clip of that. I’m looking dumpy in my PJs but it’s only 16 seconds.

  1. Unboxed & set it up.
  2. Downloaded Chrome
  3. Imported bookmarks & logged into all my creative accounts.
  4. Got the main Creative Cloud apps I use downloaded.

I even put away the rest of my laundry people! Whatever hadn’t been hung up immediately last week. Didn’t get much sleep either b/c stayed up a little too late & I’m awake at the very edge of first light every day. Hoping for a pre dinner nap!!!



The Mini Band Thigh Burning Workout

Pre warm-up starts @ 0.54.

Warm-up: 10/40 2 Rounds after 3:50 orange band. Kicked my ASS & I paused for notes. The orange Xband was the perfect resistance, and my bands don’t roll up if anyone shopping for thigh bands happens to read this.
1. Plies Pulse Hop
2. Low jacks
3. (Hold Low) Alternate Squat Step Together
4. Plank Jack forearms
5. Dive Bombers

Circuit 1: 3 Rounds after 13:00 √, √, √  [ENDED UP DOING THIS AS A DROP SET.] Intense! I’d previewed this but it was awhile ago & I’d forgotten 3rd move somewhat & cardio entirely. I’d have taken my vest off for the plank move / jumping cardio @ the beginning. Plus 10s is a little heavy for this move.
1. (R. Side of Bench) Kneel Down/Up – Step Up to Knee Lift – down
Criss Cross Jack 10 – 12x 5s Rnd 1 – +8lb vest. Rnd 2 – no vest, same dumbbells. Rnd 3 – dropped to 5s.

Criss Cross Jack 10 – 12x
3. Alternate Side Plank – Row Close to Overhead Pull 10x 15s. Rnd 2 – no vest, same dumbbells. Figured this out on the 2nd round, w/o the added weight of the vest. It’s row up, back down & then a side-plank snatch.

3x = Mountain Climbers hops to 2 switch lunges w/ weights OH – 10x Rnd 1 – 10s + 8lb vest. Rnd 2- no vest, same dumbbells. Rnd 3 – dropped to 5s.

Paused after all rounds for notes & a rest. Tired! Did rest of circuit w/ music & breakdown.

Took a nice, long break here b/c a great Lana Del Ray song came on… Vid was 47:54 & I didn’t start the first bonus til after, oh about 1:10…

Bonus: Thigh Burner 5/30 2 rounds (1 left/1 right) V happy w/ the 5lb ankle weights for this set. Sometimes I like them better than the bands. Only thing I’ll change if repeating this set or WO is to rest a 10lb dumbbell above knee for #5.
1. Bent Leg Lift
2. Straight Leg Lift
3. Kneeling – Glute Kick Back
4. Kneeling – Straight Leg Glute Pulse Up
5. Clam Shell Kept bottom foot on floor for this move.
6. Kick Out Lifted bottom foot.
7. Leg straight Knee Tap Front/Foot Lift behind (Rainbow)
Repeat on Right side

Bonus: Abs :45 10 rounds (2x) – Didn’t notice M used a band here & I went w/ no equipment. She did these no rest. This’d be a great set tacked onto a Zgym for after work, but I’d do it timed to do 2lb ankle weights for all but #4 & maybe #8
