My Melicious Workout
A few months ago, Bonita invited the members of her workout tribe to submit namesake workouts and today we took on the workout I created from things I like to do. As usual, the resulting workout was harder than I intended when I daydreamed it into existence.
This workout is proof that I actually have no idea how far 50m is. Eyeballing the track, we realized the bear crawl should actually be 25m instead. Whew!
Full disclosure: I took many rest breaks. My wackadoodle sleeping habits right now are messing with my workouts a bit, but I finished all five rounds with full range of motion on everything… even though I really, really wanted to cupcake on some of the pushups. For the last round, I did step-ups on the 36-inch box, and that was way, way harder than jumping on the 20″.
My time: 28:38
We finished with a lap around the track holding dumbbells in the overhead, locked-out position. I used two 10-lb. dumbbells. Trust me: that’s so much harder than you think it’s going to be. Try it sometime!
(Re-reading this I realize I keep mentioning how hard everything was. It really was!)
