Today was the first day of my Summer Shred Exercise program that I signed up for being run by Bobbi! (:
The dogs had me up at 6:30 am… (Thanks for that… NOT) One day I am hoping I will be able to sleep in again! I guess I also have to thank them though… It got me up and moving early.
I started my workout for the day by heading outside and doing 2 miles for the training for the MuckRuckus Run… Just 27 days away. I actually had a good time. I ran it in like 18 minutes and some odd seconds which is A LOT faster than I have been running the past couple of days… and this is the reason why I think I ran faster before my run I actually mapped it out so that when I got home I knew it was going to be 2 miles. I had a finish line to run to. Before I would just run around until the app on my phone told me I was done but this time I actually kinda knew how far I still had to go.
Then I came home and I still wasn’t hungry so I decided to move on to the Summer Shred. Bobbi gave us a workout to do kinda like the boot camp workouts I do on Tuesday Nights. There was a list of 20 workouts that you do three times. It was supposed to take 20 minutes but it definitely took me a lot longer. It was tough but I liked it! (:
I’m gonna try and share one of the workouts with you guys that are new to me. Today it is the Plank Ups. I know planks are good for you and they are a great workout but I had no idea what a plank up was until this morning.
The workout targets shoulders, chest, triceps, abs, and your lower back… and it’s no joke. It is a mix of a plant and a push up.
- You start in plank position
- Then straighten one of your arms
- Then the other
- Then go back to the plank position one arm and then the other.
- Repeat for a minute.
Great Day 1 of Summer Shred!
What do you think about the Plank Ups?
