#Tabata #HIIT #reps and #yoga

Tried a new channel for part 1 of today’s workout, more tabata. I must have a shorter attention span lately! Or maybe I’m doing more tabata as a bit of a “relief” alongside rep-based sets. I think reps work me a bit better than HIIT, but though I’m thorough I’m also a bit slow-ish, so they tend to take a longer amount of time that’s hard to predict.

Anyway, if you knew how much wine & beer I had yesterday, you’d be really impressed!

This is part of a random challenge Lisa posted without a video on her Facebook. Greyed out moves are ones I skipped since I’d just done a legs set. And I did less than half of it! I’m not sure how I feel about 50 reps either. 25 seems more reasonable. Anyway, after move 8 I was at about 90-min into my routine so I changed to  yoga.

Short, late #HIIT workout

I think I’m a little burned out on the HIIT lately. Or I need new shoes, inspiring clothes and workout situations? LOL. That’s not gonna happen. But I do have a friend visiting for 10 days very soon. I’ll probably only get in a few sessions a week max. Maybe two!

Today I got distracted with studying and then killing (I think) a new piece, but I’m getting more adventurous… I’m still going to post it (in lamdod 0f course), even if it sucks.


HIIT Ladder + Tabata: Full Body Cardio Muscle Builder

  • With a couple added moves. Done from the list, with weighted vest.
  • Super annoying cause my battery was real low so I plugged it in b4 starting. Then I got mixed up with the moves & had to stop twice. Then my phone wouldn’t connect with the charge again & I kept getting low memory messages. Plugged it into the laptop for the tabata & that worked.

1x Part One (10/50), 17min

  1. Tuck Jump Burpees I omitted 180 turn. I like to connect elbows w/ thighs & it’s better to go straight on for tuck jumps in that case
  2. Diagonal Squat Jump Walk
  3. Side Jump Lunges
  4. Three Wide Mountain Climbers/One Jump Lunge
  5. Falling Lunge R (L on the way back down) Step out to the side & smoothly drop into lunge. Lift knee & hop on return
  6. Triceps 180 Burpee/Plank Jump (hop in-out-in)
  7. Plie Squat Jumps
  8. Broad jump forward, bunny hop back Three Wide Mountain Climbers/One Jump Up This move was written in twice but wasn’t done twice, so I decided to just add in a move I like & keep the 9-count.
  9. Plank Jump/Dive Bomber/Wide Tuck Feet wide for all.
    (Now Go Backwards Till You Get To The First Exercise)

1x Part Two (20/10)
Squat Jumps Narrow & Wide
Three Jump Lunges/Three Plyo Jumps

1x Part Three (20/10)
Star Burpees
Ski Jumps Narrow squat jumping side to side, swinging arms as if you’ve got poles

1x Part Four (10/50) 17min
OK I have a shitty weighted vest & now it’s all stretched out. I’m not handy with sewing & I don’t have $ for repairs so I can’t do all this fancy “turn it upside down & stitch it tighter in various ways” that all the YouTube trainers do.

It ends up around my freaking shoulders EVERY SINGLE TIME I jump back into plank for anything. I took it off for the descent back to move 1 on this set. Fuck it.

  1. Narrow Squat Jump/Tuck Jump/Star Jump
  2. Push Up Bear Crawl Get in crawl. Take a step forward w/ 1 hand & leg, push-up. Go forward as far as you can & then back up.
  3. Curtsy Jump Up R
  4. Curtsy Jump Up L
  5. Push Up Touch Back Reach back & touch alt foot.
  6. Diamond Burpees Diamond push-up, diamond jump.
  7. Bunny Hops Moving foward & then backward.
  8. Heel Click Standing & w/ hands on floor/Pike Press/Push Up
  9. Straight Abs I just added a move to keep this set the same length as the first one.

Recovery workout, 54min #HIIT & 37min #ashtanga #yoga

I’d thought I’d be downtown cleaning today, but it was just as well I wasn’t needed in. I had a Creative Circle notice to respond to, and I finally got around to updating the links on my interactive resume. I had to draw a portfolio icon and change my first website from my soon-to-be-obsolete iPage website to my space in Adobe Portfolio. I also reduced the buttons from five to four, and swapped out Pinterest (only for working) for Instagram (much more relevant in terms of describing me).

Also had another session on a watercolor I’m calling “Cricket in the Snow”. It’s going to stay pretty light… I will probably do one more session and then call it done.




  • 15/50 w/ 2min rest between sets = 54min

* Cardio: skipping

  1. Squat jumps 10lbs

Insane #reps & #HIIT workout plus #yoga

This routine had about 253 push-ups in it, I shit you not. I’m not exactly sure b/c I forgot to count on one of the timed, HIIT sets.


Skipped the video warm-up. I did the whole routine from a list & wore no weighted vest.

I cut some moves from the insane “burnout” at the end & put them at the beginning, to break that heinous chunk up a bit.

2 3 switch foot mtn climbers to Arnold press 30 Keep hands on weights for switch lunges, then stand w/ 1 knee lifted for press. Figured out on round 2 to get stabilized in the lunge & then pick up knee while getting arms into position for the press. Smooth flow that way.

50 Decline Pushups Went probably less than half my normal, full range of motion here
50 Box Jumps For once I was HAPPY I’m limited to a mere 13″ elevation!
50 Chest Press 40, dropping to 30lbs for last 20 reps (was getting wobbly)
50 In & Out Squat Jumps no added weight, touched floor every squat
50 Arnold Presses 30

(Time = 1:53)


About 18min

#HIIT #reps & #yoga

Internet up on The Hill was really spotty all day Sunday, so I made sure to preview another workout (as slowly as it had to be) so I could work out entirely from a list. I like to do that anyway, a lot of the times, because I like to listen to music and not be distracted by another pace.

This was a low burner but I didn’t mind for today. Normally I do my own, jump rope warm-up but I’d had enough of that for a bit. On the other hand, the first five sets of this workout, at least, would be really good done another time, w/ like 3min of jump rope before each one.

#HIIT warm-up & a little freestyle #ashtanga #yoga
