Today’s workout. Whew, thanks Cassey for melting my muffin top. ;) Honestly though the ab workout part of this was the “break” - my workout buddy and I did a HIT workout. That means pushing yourself to the limit. And we did. I haven’t sweat like that in a long time. 

We got on the jacobs ladder and climbed for 5 minutes a fast as we could and then got off and did the circuit of abs. For the Oblique twist we used a 15lb medicine ball. For the Candlestick Dipper and the Ballerina dig, a 5lb weight. We made the Ballerina dig a 12 rep exercise but stuck to the rest as listed.

We did this circuit 3 times. It took us about 30 minutes and it was very hard. Strange thing is that the last 5 minutes of the jacobs ladder was the fastest for me. Something about knowing I only had 5 minutes of that hell to go. LOL

You can do the same thing on a stair mill or tread mill. The key is to go as hard as you can go - know that it’s only 5 minutes.

I had a lovely swim today. My feet, back and knees were all hurting and the water was my friend- it felt gentle and soothing. I also enjoyed my playlist on my underwater mp3 player..  I sort of zoned out into it and actually felt rushed having to get out of the water to get to my nail appointment. Usually I’m counting my laps and happy to be done, today, I was just happy. It was good day. xo -Amy
