We rounded off the leg burner with Three Sets of 12 Wall Squats with a ball & weighted kettle bell combo. Hold 50lb kettle bell between legs and squat.
This work out took roughly an hour to complete. We rounded off this routine with about 15 minutes of HIIT training, which was incredibly difficult considering all of the above. I broke up with the elevator at my office some time ago and for the first time in months, I've seriously considered ditching the stairs.Weights are not just for the boys! Beastmode= on!
My running skort from Athleta came in this week, and I was itching to take it for a spin. Wednesday evening, I ran five slow miles- heavy legs from leg day previously. The skort was incredibly comfortable, more comfortable than my hot shorts, light, and super cute. I received so many compliments on it from the ladies at the gym! Mr. Noel even took note- Hey, that's really cute work out gear you're wearing! This man rarely notices what I'm wearing. Ever. Skort is rocking! I may order a few more in other colors/styles. It's going to be one HOT summer. Gotta stay cool!
#4mchallenge update- moved up to Jillian's Killer Abs Level 3 this week. She really is trying to kill me on this level. It's strenuous and challenging. I'm absolutely loving it. I enjoy working out at home now- it's not something I ever thought I would like as I've been in cardio/gym/social mode for years now. However, it's nice to wake up, workout in my living room, shower and get ready for the work. The elimination of travel time is most appealing. Post #4mchallenge I'll keep Jillian in rotation a few days a week. I LOVE her attitude and the ability to constantly challenge myself. I will say I have noticed significant increased core strength since using her DVDs to focus on stomach definition Girl friend knows how to work it out!
