Fitness Tuesday

/ posted in: Fitness


I’ve been doing the 44 Days of Burpees so I’ve been doing the appropriate amount of burpees each day. It is still easy right now since it is the first week.

Sunday

This is my last Sunday class. I’ll miss it because I enjoyed getting to pick a workout but it was at an inconvenient time on the only day off that I have as the same time as the husband. I’m still going to do a workout on these days but at home.

3 rounds of:

  • 10 Squat Cleans – bar from ground to shoulder while squatting. I did 55 lbs.
  • 30 Box Jumps – I’ve got no vertical jump. I do 12″.
  • 10 Burpees
  • 30 Air Squats
  • 10 Burpees
  • If you do the math there are 60 burpees in that workout. We did 7 in warmup. That’s way over the 7 I needed for the burpee challenge! I should earn a few days off.

    Brooke’s Skinny Snowman Challenge started today. I didn’t print out my forms so I forgot to do a bunch of stuff.

    Monday

    8 burpees. I rug burned my knees doing the burpees on Sunday so these are a bit painful.

    Tuesday

    The workout today was in two parts. First we did as many reps as possible in 5 minutes of:

  • 15 pushups
  • 10 pull ups – I do jumping pull ups. I can’t do regular ones and can barely manage jumping ones.
  • Then we had a 1 minute rest and went into 5 minutes of as many reps as possible of:

  • 15 squat jumps with a medicine ball – Hold a medicine ball (I did 14 lbs) and then squat and jump up in the air.
  • 10 ring dips – I can’t do full dips either so I kept my feet on the ground to partially support my weight. It still killed my triceps. This move amazes me when the husband does them. He does them so fast and easy. He has triceps of steel. I’ve never felt anything like them.
  • I did 4 rounds of the first one with 15 pushups extra and 4 rounds of the second with 12 jumps extra.

    Then I came home and did my 9 burpees!
