#interval #pyramid, #tabata & a tiny bit of #yoga

OK I didn’t stick to plan with a yoga based workout. Didn’t get my heart rate up consistently with this one which is unusual for a Julia routine. I think I don’t have heavy enough weights, but holding the two 10s as often as I do hurt both of my hands today. Am I hitting a plateau or is my Polar breaking or both? I mean was I seriously only in fat burning mode for all but 18 minutes?

  1. I broke absolutely no sweat during this workout, so it might be not you or the Polar or something, but simply the “nature” of that workout 🙂


    1. Ah! Thanks for that. I am always significantly slower than Julia in certain moves, and I don’t have access to heavier weights, so I thought maybe I was totally slacking.


      1. Don´t worry 🙂 I am always faster than her and I often have to do another workout to feel that I really worked out 🙂 Simply some workouts are hardcore and some may be only long, but not exactly intense enough. It depends on the choice of moves, the “flow” of the workout, etc. Also I am sure you can always get an awesome workout, even with lighter weights. As long as you move, everything is ok 🙂


  2. Lol, thanks :)) Definitely the best compliment for me 🙂 Based on what I have read so far here on your blog, there´s a beast inside you as well, you are a real fighter, I see it!
