My SMART Quest for today is: I am feeling better today so my Quest is to stay that way! I am back to my lowest weight during this program as well as the lowest I had gotten in Ageless Abs 1. I am very happy about this. I also noticed a loss in most areas when I measured on Monday , some even lower than the first time I did Ageless Abs 1. I am hoping that the next 6 weeks I will see some good results. I stayed up way too late again last night so I was very tired when I awoke this morning. I have not been getting enough sleep so one of my goals is also to get more sleep!
Awoke: 5:00 am
Today I am doing Scott Colby's Weight Based Interval Training #2, week 5, from Ageless Abs 2 Program! I will continue to add more reps and do more advanced moves.
Metabolic Acceleration Phase - Week 5
Weight Based Interval Training #2
BOSU Grasshoppers with Push Ups x 20 total push ups
BOSU DB Squat to Y Press ( 15 lb dumbbells) x 16 reps
DB One Legged Step Up with Bicep Curl (12 lb dumbbells) x 20 total (10 each leg)
BOSU DB Squat with Bent Over Rear Raise (15 lb dumbbells) x 16 reps
BOSU DB Squat to Y Press - I added extra reps and I could really feel this with the 15 lb weights. I still have trouble balancing with the weights. I think my partner Doris is amazing as she can balance on the underside of a BOSU and still squat and use weights! Amazing! I don't think I will try it, I will just add more weight.
DB One Legged Step Up with Bicep Curl - I stuck with the 20 reps. I tried to go to 15 lbs, but my arms were so tired, and I had a hard time balancing so I used the 12 lb dumbbells.
BOSU DB Squat with Bent Over Rear Raise - I had a few moments of stability issues, but finally got the hang of it. I think the BOSU is just do new to me so I am enjoying the challenge!
I was so tired by the end of this workout! I felt like I was dragging. I really need more sleep and am planning to take a nap.
I completed 2 1/2 rounds in 20:00.
R#1 - 9:06, R# 2 - 7:11, R#3 - 7:14 (Yikes)
I finished this workout with a 5 minute Couplet Finisher #2 (well it took me 6 minutes, again, I seemed to be so tired!Bodyweight Rows until you can't do any more - R1 23, R2 17, R3 13
(I used the Ultimate Body Press Dip Bar - much more difficult to do the BW Rows on)
Jumping Lunges until you can't do any more - R1 37, R2 30, R3 28
