Workout/Martial Arts 04/20/2020: Started a challenge in the middle, but maybe I will win a free sports bra

Hello everyone. I started this blog to track my progress, document my journey, share some of my favorite healthy recipes, and share my love for not only my workouts but my main Martial Arts (Muay Thai, and Kali). I still use my blog for that. I also originally started the blog for just me. If other people read it that was fantastic, but really I wanted to have a place to put all my thoughts, and my journey.

However, with this pandemic, and being an essential worker has changed things, and the way I view this blog. While I have to leave the house to go to work, and to do supply runs. I feel isolated. (everything is quick, don’t linger, don’t touch what you aren’t getting, don’t socialize, and an air of anxiety) I think we all feel this when we are out getting essentials. So writing this blog has taken on a new role for me. I feel like I connect with some people around the world. I have readers from all over the world. I am amazed when I look at the statistics and see some from almost every continent, countries big and small, and even people in my own backyard.

So while you may be silent, or you may ask questions. I still feel like this world is connected. That being said if you want to just say hi even, please feel free to. I will respond as soon as I see it.

Anyway lets get back to my week of workouts. As my title states I started a challenge in the middle of the challenge. Lets see lets start from the beginning. The beginning of this week in workouts started out as a comedy of errors. Next I don’t use… wait (I have them set up)… I did not use a lot of different social medial applications. I used mainly FB, and have twitter attached to this blog (I almost never go into twitter). But other than that I just use FB and write up this blog. Well I also have a Instagram account, and it was brought to my attention (read, I actually looked at my Instagram account) that there was a challenge going on with my favorite sports bra company SheFit. The challenge is to do their workouts and if you post, #SheFit them you might be one of three winners a day that may win a bra, one of their pants or other accessories. You bet your bottom I am going to try and see if I get lucky.

If you are interested I have done a review of the SheFit bras on this blog. You can read it here. https://think.fitness.blog/2020/03/06/shefit-bra-review-are-the-ladies-locked-and-loaded/

So that is what I did for this week:


Monday 04/21/2020: 1 hour workout, and the comedy of errors that ensued

Workout: 1 hour I did the Workout Tony One of my trainers gave me. And three more exercises to round it out.

However, follow along with me as I tell you the tale of how everything was trying to get me to stop my workout or at least it felt like that.

Half way through my 10 minute jumping rope my jump rope broke. Yup. So I just held the broken end and kept going.

Then the speaker for my music ran out of battery. So I put my headphones on and kept going.

Finally as I am doing my Straight Arm Lat Pulldown with resistance band, my son noticed I was bleeding. I had blood on one hand but it was coming from the nailbed of my other hand. Bwahahah. I cleaned up and then finished my workout.

I will put my workout here:

Workout:
10 minutes of jumping rope

2 minutes for each exercise, 1 minute rest between, do 3 sets of each exercise.

Do the following continuously for 2 min
1) burpee, push-up, opposite knee to elbow, push-up, opposite knee to elbow, push-up, opposite knee to elbow, push-up, opposite knee to elbow, high jump, jumping jack

2) kettle bell high pull, burpee in kettle bell (I had to modify to burpee on floor my core not strong enough to do on bell), kettle bell swing

3) high jump touch ankles, high jump touch knees, high jump touch toes

#3 is still the hardest of them all for me. I have a lot to improve on with those.

———-

1) Banded squats x 30
2) Back Squats with Olympic barbell 95 lbs 3 sets of 10
3) Straight Arm Lat Pulldown with resistance band 3 sets of 20

Now to roll out my IT band cause it’s mad at me.

Not gonna stop for some stupid crap like blood. lol

Monday 04/23/2020: 40 minte workout, Shadow Boxing, My first Day but Day 18 of the SheFit30 workout

Workout: 40 minute

Missing my Muay Thai training so decided to do a SHEFIT workout. Part of their 30 day challenge. Today’s was A.M.B.I.T.I.ON.
3x the following:

B. 20 Squats
I. 25 Knee Crunches

It took about 27 minutes. I took a minute active rest (dancing) in between a full set (meaning all exercises done back to back).

Then I did 10 minutes of shadow boxing.

This was a great set! I love their bras they hold the girls and let me do all the jumping things without pain.

I hope you are all staying safe, keeping sane at home, and socially distancing yourself. Look out for those whom you love and who can’t look out for themselves.

Incidentally I suppose if you want to see what I put on my Instagram my user name is @Sharpcupcake I don’t even know if that is the right way to point some one to your Instagram account. lol

Have a great day. Thank you for reading. Please stay safe, and if you want to feel free to comment, and or subscribe.
