Today’s workout is a challenge for the entire body! It’s an oldie, but a goodie. I haven’t really been working out this week, just staying generally active. Since my nephew was born on Sunday, and he’s been in the NICU he is all I can think about. The outpouring of prayers, love and support we have had from everyone has been amazing.
I have great news, Dax is starting to get better! He is still in the NICU and on a breathing tube, but his last x-ray showed that his lungs are completely clear of meconium. They removed his catheter, are weaning him from the nitrous oxide and dopamine. Being weaned from the ventilator can take 2-7 days, but I will keep you all posted on his progress.
For an alternate workout you can try the 21 Minute Full Body Workout: Total Body Sculpting. It’s challenging!
This is the full length version of my Ultimate Body Weight Workout. A full length version of this video was requested on my facebook page. It is a great full body, fat burning workout. Intervals are incorporated throughout to maximize the fat burning, while also allowing you to build lean muscle mass.
The workout was tough on me! It took me about 30 minutes to complete. I definitely have to work on my one leg squats, they used to be a lot easier for me. It’s a good motivation to start putting them back into my workouts.
I was able to go through this workout almost 2 minutes faster than my original time. I also added a twist to the oblique drops this time, so I could have gone through it faster if I stuck to the original variation. I was happy with my time. It shows that my level of fitness has progressed (even though the workout is still tough!)
At the very end of the video, the camera went into “stand-by” mode, so you miss about two reps of the workout before it kicks back in for the last exercise. Technical difficulties are unavoidable sometimes.
This is a more advanced workout. It can be modified based on your level of fitness. I wrote down my recommended number of reps below the video. Remember to build yourself up, and listen to your body. You will get stronger if you keep challenging yourself.
Have a great day! I hope you enjoy the workout!
