Wednesday calls for another resistance training day. Every week in BBG there are 3 resistance training days: legs, arms, and full body. Today is arms, week 9.
Circuit 1 consists of 4 different exercises. Each exercise is done for a certain amount of assigned reps (usually between 12-20 reps). My personal goal is to complete all 4 assigned exercises and repeat them within the 7 minutes…. Yea, that definitely didn’t happen on Monday. Within the 7 minutes I was only able to complete the 4 exercises 1 time through… PLENTY of room for growth! I love writing down when I had to modify an exercise and note when I couldn’t complete the exericses 2x through because I know eventually I WILL be able to complete them 2x times through without modifications. From my experience, every 4 weeks the difficulty of the workouts increase. At the end of week 8 I could complete the exercises 2 times through within the 7 minutes. Over the next 4 weeks, I am determined to do the same.
So, after I do circuit 1 for 7 minutes= 30 second break. Then I move on to start ciruit 2. A whole other set of 4 exercises with different assigned reps. Then another 30 second break. Repeat each circuit with a break in between and I am DONE.
While I am working out, I have the BBG PDF printed out and directly in front of me. The PDF shows me step by step of each exercise and displays proper form. I definitely need both. I am constantly looking at it throughout my 7 minutes. By now, my husband knows he can’t even talk to me while I am BBG-ing. I am concentrating too hard. If I get distracted I become absolutely clueless…. Where should my hands be again? How low do I get? How wide are my feet suppose to be? Did I do my other side yet? What number and I on? 15? 25? Crap!
Well, I have procrastinated long enough and it’s time to get my workout in. Here is my workout for tonight:
Circuit 1: drop push-ups, medicine ball squat and press, rasied feet tricep dips, and mountain-climber push-ups
Circuit 2: broad jump burpees, dumbbell squat and press, decline push-ups, and bosu burpees.
Anybody else get their sweat on today?
