    - 9 min extreme HOME cardio... It sounds dumb, but I used to do it all the time when I lived in the dorms and had minimal space. It will have you panting by the third rep. Even this guy is out of breath.
    - Fitness bender butt toning exercises. Damn, Ci, no wonder you're sore. I couldn't do the last rep because my legs were still such jelly from the cardio. I'll probably do it later.

    I'll probably do some light lifting later today since I don't have much going on and I'll be too busy tomorrow to do much of anything.

    Fitness 4

    Movement, ABWE, Yoga, Cycling

    Movement / warmup:

    Explored movement of hips, arms, bending into triangle pose etc.

    ABWE: Handstands

    Practice:
    Handstand against wall w/ 3 press-ups (against wall); 40 secs
    Handstand against wall w/ 3 press-ups (against wall); 20 secs
    Handstand against wall; 7 secs

    Strength:
    Couldn't practice handstand pushups (as distinct from press-ups) so did Pistols; sitting onto low coffee table, 10 reps each side. Found them way easier than I have done the last two times! Probably I know how to do them now, so my co-ordination is better. And could I possibly already be building strength?

    Accessory:
    Tripod (1 min 30 secs)
    Headstand 16 secs
    Two Scorpion Handstand against wall: 30 secs; 23 secs

    Yoga
    45 mins Aerial Yoga



    Cycling
    50 mins

    Observations
    My arms are definitely getting more muscular. Pretty quick change, considering I've only been on this programme for four days!

    I have to sprint tomorrow. My aim is to do it twice a week, but I hate the thought of it. But I know in my case it's good for weight loss. I went through a (short) phase last autumn when I was sprinting every day and after four days I really noticed the difference: my jeans were suddenly really loose in the thighs. Hoping twice a week might be enough.

    And, what's the difference between press ups and push ups? I love doing handstands, all the blood rushes to your head and just kind of rids my anxiety for a bit. Too bad I can't randomly do handstands while out and about, haha.

    Whenever you sprint, how long do you do it, and what distance do you aim for, if any? Just wonderin'. Ooh and I nearly forgot, did you ever try out that onese1f power yoga vid that I sent you? Now that I know that you don't really enjoy structure, I suppose it may be a drag for you, so if you haven't done it, I'm won't bother you about it again lol. I've actually kind of abandoned that routine and replaced it with higher intensity things lately, anyway!
    You think so? Maybe that's why I'm tired... I also spent the last two days spring cleaning!!!

    It depends how flexible you are. (And how fearful, apparently!) You do need some upper body strength, but I'm not great in that area and I managed pretty well cos' I'm very supple and have no fear. It's a cool practice, but I don't know if I'd pay for it... (I know the teacher, so he invited me to come for free). But definitely good to try out!

    Oh, I just made up the term handstand press-ups I can't do a handstand unsupported, so my legs are against the wall and I used them to push my body back and forth from the wall. SO it kind of felt like press up with my legs, ha. Felt good on the abs actually.

    I normally do 6 x 100 metre sprints with a generous walk off in between. I have no idea how quick I do it cos' I run in the park, between two trees.

    And I didn't try the vid! I started it, but I just hate doing a workout to a video in my living room... What have you replaced it with?

    Whenever I get around to doing workouts at home, I post them on here now. Right now I'm into FitnessBlender on YouTube. I did the Brazilian Booty lift workout the other day, and ombat said she tried it out, too! I'm still kinda sore, lol. I just kind of realized that even though I'm doing Power Yoga, it takes up a lot more of your day to do the same amount of exercise. I can do a FitnessBlender HIIT/advanced bodyweight routine in 20 minutes and get more done than if I'd done 1+ hour of Power Yoga. I also noticed that I kind of get bored doing yoga and am less willing to do it for an extended period of time as often as I was aiming for, so I wouldn't do anything at all. It's all just figuring out what works for me and what I feel like that day.

    The discount I had for the Aerial Yoga class was pretty good, like $30/month unlimited classes versus the normal $99/month. I didn't take the offer up, though, because I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it and go back more than once, no one could go with me and I didn't want to be by myself, and I already pay a membership at my gym, so that'd get pricey.

    I planned on doing cardio for an hour today, but there was a slight emergency, and I had to cut it short.
    Elliptical, 33mins, 0 seconds -- 4.5 miles
    High intensity, levels varying 5-10 resistance and 5-11 cross ramp.
    BPM: high 168
    Pandora station: Dead Kennedys (hacked, unlimited skips is amazing)

    I thought I'd be stressed about not being able to finish my workout today, but I still experienced a runner's high, and I decided that 4.5 miles is an adequate amount of exercise for one day. It helped my sore leg muscles to feel a bit better, and hopefully, tomorrow I can get a good weight lifting session in.
    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm finding this journal so helpful and motivating actually. It's nice to have friends along for the ride! And it wil be cool to see the physical progress.

    A lot of people do Yoga because they think it will get them in shape, and it does, but there are definitely faster ways to build muscle. The sun salutations are the thing that really transform the body: if you did three sets of these a day you'd see a difference quickly I believe. ACtually, I might try that myself I don't normally recommend them to people though, as I do think they're an advanced series that require quite a bit of mobility to avoid injury. How supple are you?

    Woah - that's a lot of cardio! The most I can do is the sprinting or I turn into a disgusting sweat box. Good for you though!

    Ci, you would rock Crossfit. You should really look into it.

    I think that's a great idea! IT would also be a way for you to meet new people who're on your wavelength.

    I second Ci looking into crossfit.

    Well, it seems I am the foil of the group: a mere prop to illuminate your already triumphant efforts.

    I did nothing yesterday. First time I haven't even tried to do anything. I was only home for an hour the entire day. I might try to do some bodyweight exercises later today, but wonder how that would pan out on 1.5 hrs of sleep.

    In other news my mom has a Pilates cadillac so I anticipate using it a bit when i'm there!
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
