Yesternight’s Workout:

 

A little different,
but ooooh, my arms are feeling it this morning:

x1

400m run
15 bench jumps
2 ring handstands
3 handstands

15 spiderman pushups
10 squats
15 mountain climbers
10 kneehang situps
5 spartan pushups
15 bench jumps
15 dive bomber/hindu pushups
10 knee-to-chest (from dead hang)
5 pullups/chinups
400m run
10 burpees
10 kneehang situps
20 lunges

 

I could have done another round of this one–
it would have sucked, but I did have it in me.

James and Ben didn’t struggle with the spiderman or spartan pushups,
which I totally did,
but I had an easy time with the dive-bomber pushups and
they really struggled with those.

It’s fascinating to see which exercises are
particularly challenging for different folks!

Oh,
and I ripped off a callous doing pullups.
OUCH.

Yesternight’s Workout:

 

With LauraJane, her husband James, and The (former) Roommate,
who came late, and consequently had to do more burpees, ha ha!

(kidding!)

x3:

40 walking lunges
30 situps (10 knee to chest, 20 standard)
20 pushups
10 burpees

James and I also did a 1-minute plank,
and I made one run around the park (400 meters, roughly) with The Roommate,
and an extra set of the above (except for the burpees) with her as well.

This was a good one!

(We almost killed James after that first set of burpees–
they are real sonsuvbeeyotches.)

My arms and legs are feeeeeeling it today.
Lunges are hard for me,
and I have a bruise on my left knee where I let myself come down too fast.

Working out with friends is *so* much better than crying through it alone!
I love that we can push each other and curse together through the really ouchy bits.

I feel like I have Gym Buddies.
And that’s really nice.
