Terry

I heard she has blisters on her hands.  Not surprised!

Beat PD Today Memorial Day Trainer Challenge begins with Terry! 100 pull-ups (full disclosure…hands ripped at 90, had to do 2 sets of ring rows), 200 push-ups, 300 squares, 1 mile row before, 1 mile after, 46 minutes, I believe that counts for 800 reps( 100 each for the mile rows)

Terry’s thoughts:

It WAS interesting to me, at the beginning of workout, was thinking about heroes who have died in war, and at end of the workout, thinking of our clients,,,many who don’t feel great as they start the workout …but they show up anyway!! That takes determination to do that… anyway, I worked out a little l harder thinking of all of them!

Happy Memorial Day!!!

Heading 3

Day 3-Wednesday, June 1

Vicki

 I spent a good part of the day helping my husband clean gutters (up and down a ladder and then cleaning up the darn mess).  Anyhow, I just completed my challenge for today:

I did a total of 100 each of the following 7 exercises. I didn't do them all at once though....I did four intervals of 25 each.  I didn't stop until it was completed.

Crunches 

Bicycles (elbows crossing over to opposite knee)

Walk out bridge

Alternating leg raises (on my back with straight legs)

Kettlebell swing (25 lbs)

Bicep curls (10 lbs hand weights)

Triceps kickback (full lever)

 

So... in reality, I did 700 TOTAL REPS !!! 

 

This challenge is a great way to keep me on track......I can be a slug at times.

Nancy

That’s all folks for today other than getting in my steps. Should come in around 20,000. That should be the next challenge to get moving all through the day!

Laura
100 Russian twists today with 8lb weight…now off to teach 3 classes!

Michelle
With a bad shoulder AND a bad knee, I still had to workout today. I had to find a way to get my heart rate up with out moving or using my right leg or lifting my right arm above my head. Here is what  I did today as I also tried to focus in some Explosive/Fast movement to fit in our theme for this month.
10 minutes on rower
100 bicep curls
100 rows
100 tricep ext
200 abs
10 minute rowing

 

Rowing

Jen

 I did the following:

In supersets 5x ea:

10 Back squat/ 10 1/2 kneel lat pulldown

10 Heel elevated front squat/ Chinups (3,3,3,3,3= 15 GT)

Superset 3x:

30 walking lunges/ 15 TRX rows

 

So in total: 300 repetitions

Linda
This is reminding me of exercises I haven’t done in a while and I love them! So, I did my same workout this morning but will change it up tomorrow. My puppy LOVED doing mountain climbers w me, on me, under me! 

Anne

Tuesday I did 100 push exercises (chest press with band)

As a bonus today I spent about 20 minutes getting compression stockings on my 93 year old mother in law lol. First time doing that lol. I think that counts as high intensity training and push exercise lol  

Wednesday I’m planning on doing the squats

You ladies are very impressive and inspiring! Woohoo for all of you! 

Terry
Terry is worried now as she sees all the great workouts that are competing with her.  She said she needs to  up  the ante tomorrow.
Workout today:

I did 5 rounds of :
400 meter row (x5 equals 2000 meters)                                           25 KB swings (x 5 equals 125 swings)                   
25 abmat sit-ups (x5 equals 125 sit-ups                                             Jump rope 50x (x 5 equals 250 jumps)

Farmers carry (100 meters x 3 equals 300 M)

 

Really nice moving workout…still a tiny bit tired from Monday.

2 mile walk before I taught the next class, so 200 more?

Vicki

Today I did the Silver Class (online).  I didn't realize just how many reps are done in that single class!  I lost count of how many kettlebell squats/swings, mountain climbers, stability ball passes, curls, kicks, knees, etc. etc.  Definitely more than 100 reps of each.  Great class!  I'll probably take my daily speed walk around my neighborhood (1 mile) later this afternoon.

 

Keep up the great work everyone!

Laura
