I continued with my twice a week workout dealy-o this week. Seems like that’s about all I have the time/energy for these days. Some days, I totally have time to work out, but I choose to nap instead. Why? Because it’s too hot to exercise outside, which is what I prefer, and, well, naps are awesome.
- The Ab Lab by Strong Like My Coffee – First off, big fan of this blog. The girl that writes seems like she’d be super fun in real life. Second, this short but sweet plank workout was killer. I hate planks, mostly because I have a shoulder issue that stems from pole vaulting back in high school, but this little Ab Lab was a totally worth it kind of challenge. My core felt so strong after!
- Crazy 6 Pack Ab Workout – Okay, so they used weights in this video. I didn’t have weights available. Still a great workout without weighs… and would definitely be a challenge with weights. I WILL do this one again and again.
- Never Ever Getting Back Together Workout – This sucked. I mean, it was hardcore & worthwhile, but I hated it. Mostly because I did this session on the cool deck pool patio floor at my In-laws’ and only had a towel under my arms. Apparently, the elbow pushups rubbed some skin raw on my forearms. I still have the scabs a week later to prove it.
Overall, this combo of videos was awesome… my core was that awesome kind of sore for a few days!
