About those Pics,

You know, it's kinda funny, the more I look at my pics I posted yesterday, the better I feel about myself. Sheesh, my mirror lies, because I saw myself a lot bigger than I am in those pics. Or else my hubby is just a really good photographer.

I'm excited because I really see now how close I am to seeing those abs. I designed a bodyweight workout for me to do on Tue, Thurs, and Saturdays for the next month. It looks like this:

Tues: How many sets in 20 minutes:
Prisoner Squats x10
Push-ups (full body)x10
Bulgarian Split Squats x10
Inverted Rows x10
Ball Ab Crunch x10
Ball Leg Curl x10
(I got 5 sets done, and am going to shoot for 6 next week)
HIIT if I can stomach it, 20 minutes 30 sec on/ 90 sec off- I couldn't today, I was exhausted at the end of the bw circuit!

Thurs: How many sets in 20 minutes:
Split Squats x20
Inverted Rows x15
Kettlebell Swings x30
Ball Ab Crunch x20
(I'll be aiming for 5-7 sets)
HIIT if I can stomach it, 20 min: 1 min on/2 min off

Sat: Perform in circuit, rest 2 min at end of circuit then repeat 2x
Single Leg Deadlift 3x10
Pull-ups 3x5
Y-Squats 3x25
Push-ups 3x15
Rest 2 minutes
20 minutes of HIIT, 30 sec on/30 sec off for 8 rounds

This is, of course, on top of the bootcamp-style workouts I'm doing on Mon, Wed, and Fridays. I am thinking I may be sadistic.


You're welcome to try it if you want, and let me know your "score" so I've got something to beat!

Those workouts are solid, you'll be seeing those abs pop in a hurry. Nice!
