Thought it was supposed to be cold

  • When: 01/03/2018
  • Q: Grasshopper
  • Pax: Chowda, Dory, Runner Girl, Setter

Went to bed last night knowing a forecast of “20 feels like 15 with wind” for this morning and was pleasantly surprised to have 29* register on my car thermostat at my AO.  All layered up – way to go! – was peeling off as the circuit went on.

Warm Up with jumping jacks & jog in place as I pointed out the stations I created.

The Thang: 5 stations for a minute each.  Four to five exercises to work through.

Station 1: Handled Band

  • chest press
  • back press
  • bicep curl
  • tricep curl

Station 2: Punching Bag

  • speed punches
  • kicks – side, front
  • knee hits
  • combo of choice

Station 3: The Mat

  • hydrant knee-to-elbow
  • V-ups
  • inside leg lifts
  • calf raises

Station 4: Cardio

  • speed rope/jump rope
  • suicide cones
    • basic run
    • high knee skips
    • run forward and return backward
    • shuffle

Station 5: Balance Ball/Yoga Ball

  • back extensions
  • oblique crunches
  • ab crunches
  • window wipers

My phone died at this point – thanks Chowda for having yours!  We still had 5 minutes left so we added a potpourri of switch kicks (20), flutter kicks (30), skater lunges (40) and parker peters (60).

During our rounds, we decided that one minute is no longer enough time.  Awesome!  That means we have all improved and want to raise the bar and increase the challenge.

Thank you for showing up, participating, encouraging, and allowing me to “geek out” over FiA.  I love being part of this group of women who want to move, improve and build this community.
