To cast all your worries aside, no I haven’t dropped down some bottomless sand pit or traveled to a foreign land where there’s no internet connection. Sadly my only excuse for the lack of blogging this week is the “busy epidemic” but instead of complaining I figured I’ll just share a new workout with you!
I created it last night and it really kicked my butt. If you don’t know a certain exercise, that’s nothing a quick Google search can’t fix! Just remember, for reverse crunches, you can either do these with straight legs (more difficult) or with your knees at your chest. I do it with straight legs because it’s an exercise that really challenges your core, something I personally need to work on.
Work it out! Enjoy!
Ooooo I like the idea of a 500 second run. Very, very nice. And can I say that I love reverse crunches? Is that weird? Or weird than I am normally? Good luck with all of your work!! Get it done so we can go on a date 😀
Yes yes yes! I used to hate them too but now that I’m improving I love it because I can really see progress (that’s always so motivating). I’m going to the suburbs this weekend but let’s try to set a date for sometime next week? I’ll email you!
Sweaty and full body, perfect combo 😛
Exactly! Sometimes it’s hard for me to do workouts like this on my own and not in a group fitness class but this one was really fun so I had no problem with it!
sounds like a great workout. bring on the sweat!
It definitely got the job done haha
nice little structured workout! i like. 🙂
And easy to remember 🙂 100 100 100 100 100 DONE
Sounds like we’ve both come down with a case of the busies this week. Keep on keepin’ on, lady! Nice work coming up with a workout to fit in, anyway! I love the 500 second run idea — it’s not very often you see these number-based workouts with something like that! Very cool.
It worked out really well because that’s about 8:33 aka around a mile, which I think is a perfect distance to end a tough workout, a good way to shake out the legs. I’m better at doing workouts where you’re working toward a numerical goal instead of a time goal, so doing 100 reps of different exercises made it fly by.
Didn’t fancy adding in 100 burpees???!!! 😛
Now that would be insanity haha. I should’ve added other “optional” choices for crazies like you! 🙂
This seems like a challenging workout! The 500 idea is awesome!
Thanks! For me, it makes doing a workout alone seem much more manageable.
Ohh this sounds fun! (Fun? You know this makes us weird right?) I like the idea of 100 and done. I also like that I could have a fun little goal at the end for myself – like is there enough gas in the tank for a mile?!
hahaha good way of looking at it 🙂
Nice workout!!! Sweaty!! Sweaty!!! I know you must feel great when finished!!! Woohoo!!!
It was awesome!
This is fab!! Looking for some good workouts to incorporate into my gym routine this weekend… will keep yours in mind. 🙂 Oh, and trust me you aren’t the only one who has been hit with the busy epidemic!! It must be something in the air this week.
it must be something about the start of the summer season 🙂 getting outside in the warm weather is a good finish line to look forward to after a long day of work
Nice! I might have to try this tonight and modify it a bit because I can’t run in my apartment while my kid is asleep. Reverse crunches have done wonders for my lower abs!
Right?! It’s one of those exercises where I can tell I’m improving, which is so motivating!
This looks like an awesome workout!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
My pleasure! When I come up with something that works, I have to share 🙂 I’m reading about your cleanse now – can’t wait to hear all about it!
I think I would die if I tried to do this! Lol! Seriously, it looks like a tough workout.
It’s over in the blink of an eye haha plus loud music or a good tv show make the time fly too!
This looks so good– but so intense! I might give a modified version a try– minus the high knees… for some reason I just cannot do them properly! haha
Yeah you can and should modify the 100 reps to your favorite exercises – that way you’ll actually WANT to do the workout. Imagine that 😉
Oh man, this looks killllerrrr. I think I could knock most of it out pretty easily except the crunches and maybe the run (cuz homegirl hates running).
yeah after that workout I was like mayyyybe a mile and then I’m done haha. It actually felt good to shake my legs out after all the jumping and crunching
Nice looking workout buddy- it actually looks do-able at home!
I was hoping your absence was due to a trip to Australia.
