Hi Everyone!

This was my workout yesterday. It’s a challenging mat based core series. This one definitely kept me working hard, and I struggled to keep form a few times during the movements. 
Remember, it’s always better to complete the exercise with proper form, rather than doing more reps incorrectly. To really challenge your muscles you want the movements to be controlled throughout the full range of motion. 

My body was tired from running a half marathon on Saturday, and going to a climbing wall on Sunday. I enjoyed the challenge of this workout for both my strength and endurance. 🙂

Enjoy!

    Wait…I’m confused. Do you do your workouts more than once a day plus running?! That’s a lot! On your blog, it says that you do each workout twice with a run in between! Wowza!!! How do you find the time? Also, how should I substitute running 3-5 miles. I can’t due to an ankle problem. Any suggestions?
    Thanks and I love your work.
