Military Fit Plus Program
Day 7 (sandbag workout) ~ Level 3/7 sets **40 lunges at start of every set** — First time using a sandbag (35lbs) and it was tough, but fun. The push-ups to full plank to push-up plank were challenging for the last few sets as well!
Day 8 ~ Level 3/7 sets **1 clapping push-up every 10 seconds** — Cardio HIIT so nothing to difficult for this day, but those clapping push-ups were kind of awkward because of their frequency.

Days 7 & 8 ~ completed!
Cardio Blast Challenge
Day 7 ~ 200 jumping jacks (1 set)
Day 8 ~ 150 high knees (1 set)
Flexibility Challenge D4 ~ 10 bridges/ 3 sets ✓
The equivalent of a ‘rest day’ in this challenge. It made for a nice break between ab exercises for my core workout this morning.
I’m incredibly pleased with how well I put together the core workout for today. It moved along very smoothly and it was appropriately difficult as I am just slightly sore but it isn’t impeding my overall movements. *little happy dance* 😀
Ab Lvl 2 Challenge D4 ~ 40 sit-ups + 60 flutter kicks + 1 min elbow planks ✔
I decided to do HIIT for my cardio today. I don’t want the moves/exercises to become awkward or difficult for me and it rained a good chunk of the day so heading out for a run wasn’t possible. Running in the rain is definitely not a good time.
30 Days of HIIT Adv. Day 30 ~ Level 2/7 sets ✓
I did this program after Gravity this morning so I would be able to get my max amount of reps out in that program, especially with how bloody stiff/sore I am today.

Another one of these awkward repeated set days….
It was the last one for this program so glad to have it out-of-the-way!
I thought I’d actually hit the ‘publish’ on this post early this afternoon but (obviously) I didn’t so doing it now!

** one side-to-side lunge every 20 seconds
Because each exercise in each set was actually 30 seconds long and not 20 seconds long this was pretty awkward to be honest despite the transitions not being that difficult themselves. It was awkward in that it was so tough to keep track of how long I did each exercise then and I am pretty sure I did way more for each move than I needed to do because of this part of the program.
