I can’t believe I’ve made it this far! Especially after the last two weeks…
This week not only am I doing Bodyboss but I’m also doing a daily yoga challenge – it seemed a good idea at the time.
Funnily enough the challenge has given me a new confidence in my abilities to do some of the bodyboss exercises, after all who would’ve thought I could do a headstand (ok it was only for a nanosecond but that’s not the point!) I would never have even attempted it without the last 13 weeks of Bodyboss!
Monday – legs and booty – I can so do this!!
Frog jumps, extra effort put in, a whole 40 of them, 3 times… good grief I certainly know my thighs exist!
Plank leg lifts – got it!
Reverse butterfly kicks – what on earth?!! I’ve been doing really well actually doing exercises I couldn’t do at the start but these? I mean seriously how do you lift both legs up when lying face down on your yoga mat? I can lift one leg up at a time… that will have to do…
Squats with side kicks – I can do these, although my side kicks are more waist height than shoulder height, still, they’re off the floor so that’s technically a kick!
Bench hops... ahh…. after looking at the instruction photo more closely I’ve realised that I’ve been doing these incorrectly… I’ve been holding the bench near the end of the bench and sort of hopping from side to side lifting my feet about a foot off the ground… apparently I should be the holding the bench at the top of the bench and actually jumping my feet over the bench – to be fair it makes more sense now… 44 is an odd number to do, 40 would be neater, or maybe 30? I’m good though and go for the prescribed 44, three times… I only tripped over the bench four times – success!!
The rest of the exercises go without a hitch, although I’m absolutely cream crackered!
Tuesday – yoga day 😊
My wonderful husband has picked another video to help his back – it was really relaxing and helped with my yoga challenge. I do love yoga…
Wednesday – arms, abs and core… oh good…
With the extra yoga challenge I’m certainly feeling my muscles this week!!
We start with Butterfly Kicks – the right way up!! That’s a relief!!
Followed by Plank Rotations – which I can now do – yey!!!
It then goes a tiny bit downhill… meet Jack Knives – these are the big bad cousin of V Sit-ups, I’ve just got the hang of V Sit-ups, Jack Knives are practically impossible – in fact at the moment they are impossible! My legs don’t straighten… oh well I guess I’ll just have to keep trying… after ten I swap to V Sit-ups…
Spider Planks – I can do half spiders… the legs are there(ish) but I can’t do the dip down bits, but I do the best I can!
All the rest is totally do’able! I put all my energy into doing all three circuits! I think I may pass out…
Thursday – cardio day!
40 minutes on Satan listening to my book, I can do all 40 minutes at 4 miles per hour with about 4 minutes jogging at 5.5 miles per hour – not too shabby!!
Power Up Friday!!!!
Totally nailed it!!! Although I did swap out the Aeroplane Push Ups with Plank Rotations…
Cycle 4 – Boss Level next, it says ‘Disrupt Yourself’ hmmm….
