Day 19: 10-1 Mini Workout

Standard

It’s already Thursday and not only am I already excited because the weekend is practically here, but Hunger Games comes out tonight at midnight!! I have been anxiously waiting for this day, but I’m not going to see it tonight, so I have to wait a little bit longer. I’m going to see it on the IMAX screen on Saturday morning. I’ve already got my ticket! So, expect to read about it then ūüôā

Back to Day 19 of the Pinterest Project…¬†Since I decided I wanted breakfast food again tonight for dinner, I thought I wouldn’t bore you with another egg recipe and would do something fit and healthy¬†instead! Today I did the 10-1 mini workout after doing cardio at the gym. This workout was originally posted to Pinterest from a tumblr page, ‘health-heaven’¬†where they have a plethora of workouts. You can pretty much find any workout you’re looking for on this tumblr page, including workout videos!

The workout is relatively simple. There are 4 activities that you are doing: jumping jacks, push-ups, squats and sit-ups. You work in descending order by starting with 10 reps of each and working your way down to 1 rep each. In total, you complete 55¬† jumping jacks, 55 push-ups, 55 squats and 55 sit-ups, so it’s not too shabby of a workout.

This workout was a little exhausting and I definitely felt it once I got through numbers 6 and 5, but once you make it through that, then its smooth sailing from there. Between this mini workout and the 300 challenge, you could definitely have some killer abs!

Day 17: The 300 Challenge

Standard

For Day 17 of the Pinterest Project, I have decided to do the 300 challenge! This will be the first activity I have done from ‘Fitness’ board on Pinterest, so I am quite excited about it. Although I’m a little sore from running yesterday, the 300 challenge will be a good workout for my abs!

According to the blog, “2012…my last fat year” this workout is only supposed to take 15 minutes to do and once you are finished, you will have done 300 crunches.¬† Click on the blog link to get descriptions for each of the crunches. Also, do these crunches on a yoga mat because otherwise your tailbone will hurt.

The 300 Challenge

  • 25 in-n-outs
  • 25 bicycles
  • 25 reverse bicycles
  • 25 crunchy frog
  • 25 cross-leg/wide-leg sit ups
  • 25 scissors
  • 25 hip butt-ups
  • 25 heels to heaven
  • 25 roll-up v-ups
  • 25 leg climbers
  • 50¬†kayakers

All I can say is WOW! This was killer on my abs. I could definitely feel by abs burning the entire time¬†and having sore legs from running didn’t help either. If you can stick to this workout a few times a week, then you’re definitely going to have some rock hard abs. Hopefully I can add this into my work out regimine a few times a week! Wish me luck!
