HIIT & Challenge Reps by Julia and Kristin

I hadn’t done a Julia WO in quite some time & was exhausted today. To bed at midnight & awake around 5:30, with the kitties. I had to get one in though. Yesterday I dutifully attended something & then didn’t feel like getting to my exercise later. Took an hour and ten minutes, even with rearranging my equipment all the time, which is necessary in … Continue reading HIIT & Challenge Reps by Julia and Kristin

(part of ) FULL BODY WORKOUT STRENGTH AND HIIT by Kanch & yoga

I am WEAK right now! Video starts w/ strength set. I decided to start w/ the HIIT instead. You just know I was considering right away only repeating that set 3x rather than 4, but I didn’t even make it that far! I did three of the HIITs and only 2 of the strength sets. The lack of sleep lately accompanied by the higher afternoon … Continue reading (part of ) FULL BODY WORKOUT STRENGTH AND HIIT by Kanch & yoga

(part of) ATHLETIC CARDIO PYRAMID #2 by Amy S & some yoga

I was previewing a BodyRock pyramid when I saw J posted this. My deltoids were still sore from 3 minutes of that pike press pose two days ago, and Lisa’s routine had too many goblet press-ups for today. I’ll either have to do a rest day or some yoga tomorrow… Kind of broken down. Total time = 1hr, 20min Warm-up: 10/30×6=4min JR. All easy jog. I’d … Continue reading (part of) ATHLETIC CARDIO PYRAMID #2 by Amy S & some yoga

Yoga, a sampling of a Julia WO, more yoga

There’s a guy in Fitness Friends who likes to share which WOs he picked & I loved his last suggestion. This is another. I don’t think I’d done this one before…  Decided to preview & customize, according to desired intensity and how my knees are feeling. I decided I wanted a stretch and just a bit of exercise. I did some yoga first & skipped … Continue reading Yoga, a sampling of a Julia WO, more yoga

Full Body Goals #4 (just an anti depression treatment)

I am so “Meh” today. Stopped by Powell’s on my way home, b/c I was close by and had to pee again. Looked at a few books but got quickly bored b/c I wasn’t going to buy any. When I went to leave it was raining and then I remembered I had some of the Uber gift certificate that H had kindly gifted me with. … Continue reading Full Body Goals #4 (just an anti depression treatment)

(2nd half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, with more yoga

I guess this is a “light” week. Not having a monitor definitely contributes to a “relaxed” attitude! Decided to finish what I started the day before yesterday. Why not right? But I forgot to note my start time. I think maybe it was 65-70 min but only a half hour of that was work. The yoga was mainly restorative. The standing arches I do are … Continue reading (2nd half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, with more yoga

(half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

Previewed some of this recently. I only wanted a short WO today though, and not too taxing – warm it up & stretch it out. I had limited time & wanted to conserve some artistic energy / personal prana. This might sound funny, but both driving and using my oil paints are both so mentally challenging I had to save room for it! I’m still … Continue reading (half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

(most of) 2019 Weight Lifting #9 Full Body

Total time, including putting equipment away, was 1hr, 13min. 2019 Weight Lifting #9 Full Body Combo moves pyramid: 8x rnd. 8 push-ups / 8 rows. 8 push-ups / 8 rows. 8 clean & press, etc.@25:55, as the 3rd set. I had to get … Continue reading (most of) 2019 Weight Lifting #9 Full Body

Nevertheless, she persisted – Booty Rock Workout by Kristin, 2 & some Yoga

Thought I must’ve done this one previously b/c when I clicked on the YouTube & saw I’d previewed more than half. Someone recently posted doing this one plus a Bender in Fitness Friends. I’d forgotten about this BodyRock inspired routine! I’ve been considering my reasons for exercise again, recently The March Meditation and Magick extravaganza has inspired this. Plus I’d been a little lost. Some … Continue reading Nevertheless, she persisted – Booty Rock Workout by Kristin, 2 & some Yoga

HIIT to Boost Metabolism #2

This one popped up in my suggestions & I decided to not spend any time previewing and I forgot to note my start time! How’s that for stripping away all sorts of stats and evaluations?  I loved it! Confirmed I’m more in tune with Julia’s earlier, not so geared toward heavy weight workouts. This is another one with some longer than usual intervals, at the … Continue reading HIIT to Boost Metabolism #2
