Working Out Week 25 of 2014
June 21, 2014
This past week my workouts were a mixture of biking, cardio and yoga. It seems like every summer I tend to do more outdoor activities like biking and swimming as it gets warmer and I also like to alternate with some yoga.
Schedule this past week:
- Monday – Ride Bike + exercise ball routine – 33 minutes
- Tuesday – Yoga – Yoga Life Magazine Core Curriculum routine – 20 minutes
- Wednesday – Cathe To The Max dvd, Less Impact Premix – 39 minutes
- Thursday – P90X3 – Isometrix – 30 minutes
- Friday – Ride Bike + exercise ball routine – 33 minutes
- Saturday – Yoga Life + Yoga Journal Magazine routines – 25 minutes
Every other day was yoga this past week. The yoga routines were a mixture of magazine routines and my P90X3 Isometrix dvd, which is one of my favorite dvd’s in the X3 series. I had not used this dvd in about three months and forgot how challenging it is – you hold each pose for 45 seconds.
The other yoga routines I did were from a Prevention magazine called Yoga Life that I bought back in 2010 from Sams, I believe. There are some really good yoga routines in this magazine so I have kept it and pull it out from time to time to use it. I also used a Yoga Journal magazine this past week that I checked out from the library. I took my kids there earlier in the week to check out books for their summer reading and I also checked out a couple of Yoga Journal magazines.
My cardio dvd this week was Cathe Friedrich’s To The Max. I did a 39 minute premix that was a little less impact but still very challenging and gave me a great workout. This workout uses the step for parts of the workout and it seems my cat loves to hang out on the step when I am not using it as seen in the photo below. The core with upper body weights session of this workout is tough and one of my favorite parts of this dvd.
I also rode my bike again a couple of mornings this past week on my neighborhood route. I really like being out early and riding in the fresh morning air. After my riding I usually come in and do some light stretching and some core work with my stability ball.
This coming week I will only be working out for a few days of the week and not my usual six days. We are having some work done to our house and will have people here working for a few days. There is also a possibility that I will not be able to do my post next week if they are still here finishing the work on Saturday – we’ll see.
I hope everyone had a great week and you are enjoying warmer weather and some outdoor activities and workouts.
Have a great weekend!
