Day 5 & Day 6: Powered Stronger

Today because my husband and I got caught up by the sleep monster again last night, I completed both day 5 and day 6 this morning*.  I also decided to change-up the format of the blog posting both the workouts and my thoughts on the workout at the same time!  So let’s get into the workouts!

The first workout that I did was the Power work out:

  • Barrier Jumps (30 seconds)
  • Side to Side Shuffles with Lunge (30 seconds)
  • 10 Chest to Floor Burpees
  • 10 Box Explodes Left
  • 10 Box Explodes Right
  • Rest/ Catch your breath (15 seconds)
  • High Knee Climber Combo (60 seconds)
  • 8 Push up to sprawls
  • Quick Feet Left (60 seconds)
  • Quick Feet Right (60 seconds)
  • Cardio Plank (30 seconds)
  • Rest/Hydrate (15 seconds)
  • Butt Kicks (30 seconds)
  • Side to Side Shuffles with Lunge (30 seconds)
  • 10 Chest to Floor Burpees
  • 10 Box Explodes Left
  • 10 Box Explodes Right
  • Rest/ Catch your breath (15 seconds)
  • High Knee Climber Combo (60 seconds)
  • 8 Push up to sprawls
  • Quick Feet Left (60 seconds)
  • Quick Feet Right (60 seconds)
  • Cardio Plank (30 seconds)

This workout was so tough but very fun and I even had someone ask me about it because she thought it looked fun too!

Day 6 was all about getting stronger and I really felt like my sumo squats where really helping to lift my assets!!! Check the workout below:

*I did both of my workouts this morning because I will be at the Blackwell-Tapia Conference all this weekend, for those of you who don’t know I have a PhD in Biomathematics and this is the conference that launched my academic career.

Day 2: Morning Warrior, Evening energize

Last night my husband and I got hit by the sleep monster so we missed our nightly workout. Thus, we were up early this morning and will be back late tonight to catch up. I wonder can you really catch up on workouts?

Nevertheless I was a warrior this morning and it was awesome check out my sweat below! I finished the workout with 10 minutes on the bike. Next up for me is the day 3 energize, so check my next post!
