My SMART Quest for today is: Keep on track. Things are going nicely. Remember to eat EVERY 3 hours - no exceptions if possible!
Adding the advanced workouts has been good. I can really feel it today! Doing those Push Ups yesterday with my feet elevated on a chair was amazing! Since I did 7 rounds of the push ups, that was 105 push ups and my Abs sure do feel it today! Ouch, but good stuff!
Sleep: 6 hours - Went to bed about 11:30 pm -
Awoke: 4:55 am
Today I am doing a series of 3 Tabata Intervals & 3 HIIT Intervals based on Scott Colby's Ageless Abs 2 Program! I am still figuring out how to do things more advanced and ramp it up to get a better workout! I also need to add new moves to keep things fresh and keep my body guessing! Scott has been great helping me figure out how to go about this. Since my abs are sore I decided to do moves that would work my legs instead and get my heart rate up!
Metabolic Ignition Phase - Weeks 1 and 2
3 Tabata Intervals
These are timed Intervals: Set your Gymboss Timer to 2 intervals of 20 seconds & 10 seconds and 8 rounds. Each round is 4 minutes.
Get Ups with Tuck Jump - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4 reps per round!
Bowling Lunges - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 44, 45, 44, 45, 45, 44, 44, 43 reps per round!
Overhead One Legged Step Ups - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4 rounds per leg - Left Leg: 10, 9, 9, 9 reps per round! Right leg: 9,9,9,9 reps per round.
4 High Intensity Interval Workouts
These are timed Intervals: Set your Gymboss Timer to 2 intervals of 1:00 minute & 2:00 minutes and 4 rounds. Each round is 3 minutes.
Squat Thrusts with Push Ups - 1:00 on - 12 reps, 2:00 active recovery of Squats
Reverse Lunge into Front Kick Up Left Leg - 1:00 on - 28 reps, 2:00 active recovery of boxing shuffle with punches
Reverse Lunge into Front Kick Up Right Leg - 1:00 on - 25 reps, 2:00 active recovery of boxing shuffle with punches
Touchdown Lunge to Side Kick - 1:00 on - 18 reps left side, 18 reps right side, 2:00 active recovery of Squats
I am still figuring out what to do, but I am getting the idea! Next time I will do as Scott suggested and go until I can't do anymore and then rest the remainder of the time left. I think that will work better for me.
Pretty good workout. Looking forward to a good and healthy day of eating. Yesterday was a P & C day for me and I didn't eat any carbs, oh well!
My daughter is home sick today, hope she feels better soon. Poor thing is miserable.
