Running a day behind but I will catch up!

  • Apr 23rd, 2019 at 10:08AM

Came back mid-afternoon Monday from a long weekend in Singapore for a kids soccer tournament. It was a fun but tiring weekend. And then was being the good wife accompanying my husband to a reception on board a US navy ship that is docked in HK at the moment. Not that it was exactly a hardship but I was tired and feeling busy...I did try bail on him but he was persuasive.
In the short time between those 2 things I needed to get everyone unpacked and prepared for the week...plus shower and put on a dress. The workout was the casualty. So today I did Day 1. And shortly I'll be heading to dragonboat practice. So I'm going to call that Days 1 and 7. And by Monday I'll be on track!

Day 1 workout notes:
I was able to do the half burpees with a soft landing - so I think I'm okay with those.
Mini starjumps were fine too - I keep them low so the impact is minimal.
Yahoo jumps - I'm not quite sure what to call my version - I still start with a sort of bent over squat and try to get a bit of explosive force upward - but I keep one foot firmly planted - arms and other leg up and out just like the photo. Halfway through the set I switch to the other foot. Obviously this is not as tough as the jumping version, but I still felt it and feel like it was a pretty good alternative.

    Thanks for the sub on Yahoo jumps. I do them with a small jump and land in a squat to absorb, but I think I was feeling them today, so I may try your sub if feeling achy.

      Worth a try doing a foot planted jump

        Sounds like an action packed few days! Days 1 and 7 done!! I think "Google Jumps" is great! Well done my bald brother. Best of luck for the program mate, there are SO many superstars on the Chizz this time round. Brillant!

            I am going to try your Google jumps. So far mine have been all over the map - I call them 3-D Yahoo jumps! :D
