Three sets #HIIT & #abs, moderate intensity & mostly no impact

Three sets all done along with the video, unusual for me. Normally I detail things out & do just with my preview list & interval timer. I wonder if I can move all the exercise posts over from my private blog to this one. I was working out much more intensely a couple weeks ago. If I could describe myself with one word lately I’d choose “deflated”, kind of like defeated but with a fallen souffle touch.

Killer Low Impact SILENT HIIT | 45 min

Because I felt like having a mostly low to no impact workout. I’m going to detail this all out later, change a few things (I think push-up combo moves are mostly a waste of time, for example. More effective to just do a straight set of push-ups, whether they be tricep, wide hands, elevated or spider) It’d be great to warm up for this with a 10min skipping set too, though I didn’t feel like any skipping today.

20 Minute Core Cardio Fat Burn

  • With video (30/50) with High Knees & Butt Kicks as repeating cardio  – 20min. Originally I was going to do a second, 30min set of this with Skipping but fuck that. (I think I need new cross trainers. I cannot have them.)

2. Split Leg Lift (right) Lie on side & raise top leg. Bottom leg comes up to meet it.

Quick Stomach Toning Workout

  • reps – 20
  • This was great too, but I did it with the video & I’d prefer on my own cause I’d do a lot of the reps much slower. If you’re on the ground just doing abs, you’re not going to keep your heart rate up too high anyway!

1. Scissor Situps L & R touch – 1 rep
2. Extended Heel Tap
3. Lift and Tuck
4. Balanced Side Crunch (right)
5. Balanced Side Crunch (left)
6. Hip Lift Circle

About 50min #HIIT and then some gentle #asana #yoga

Henry just nibbled on my calf because he’s tired of waiting for me to finish up all this jumping & stretching & serve him dinner.
