Military Fit Plus, Fitness Advent, & Cardio Blast Challenge ~ Days 7 & 8

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.

Flexibility & Ab Challenge ~ Day 4

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 & Gravity ~ Day 26

30 Days of HIIT Adv. Day 26 ~ Level 2/7 sets ✓

** 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.
