Paper Towels

I think I may have talked about this before.  When I  forget my towel, paper towels come in handy after a workout and a shower at work.  I can’t say they come in handy if I forget my underwear.  It tends to bunch and bind in the wrong places.  What should I do?

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK

4 rounds for time:
25 Double Leg Raises
25 Mountain climbers
25 Russian Twists ( make sure you are touching your hands to the ground each time)

After completing all 4 rounds of the above exercises…50 Burpees

My time was 12:54.6.

Magic Diet?

I have been slacking but, I really have not had much to say.  Yes, I have had 2 workout of the week that I didn’t post so, here they are:

  1. 4 rounds for time:  My time was 10:03.7.
    • Push-ups x 10
    • Squats x 20
    • Alt Leg Raises x 30
    • Jumping Jacks x 40
    • Plank Holds x 50 seconds
  2. 21-15-9 reps for time:  My time was 1:30.8.
    • Jump squats
    • Push ups

I wrote about my wife and Pinterest in this post, Social or Not So Much.  Well she is not quite addicted but, over the weekend she found this on Pinterest, The Military Diet and wants to try it.  It pretty much is 3 days of strict dieting and then 4 days of eating anything within reason.  Has anyone tried it?  It claims you can lose 10 pounds a week.  Normally, I would try it with her because it is always easier to stay on a diet when your significant other is doing it with you.  Ten pounds in a week and you are supposed to eat hotdogs and vanilla ice cream sounds a little too good to be true.  She is all in and I will support her and if she does lose 10 pounds, I will join her eating hotdogs and all.  For now, I will just keep eating my salads, veges, fruit, eggs, chicken, fish, and protein lattes.

WOW #2

I have been slacking in my running department lately.  This has to do with me wanting to lift more weights, loving the calf burn from 30 minutes on an elliptical, and just not wanting to run on a treadmill.  Yesterday was gorgeous outside so; I figured I could catch some rays and burn some calories.  I ran almost 5 miles in 45 minutes.  My legs felt like they were full of lead when I stopped running and to think I almost bought a bib to run a 13.1 miler this weekend…so glad I didn’t do that.  I thought I would be able to pick up right where I stopped about a month or two ago.  I feel I am good shape but, maybe starting at 13 miles is a little asinine.

We just got our workout of the week (WOW) from coach.

WOW #2
10 push ups
20 reverse lunges (10 right / 10 left)
30 mountain climbers (total)

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes.  Your total score is the number of complete rounds plus the number of reps completed of the exercise you ended on. Example: 7 complete rounds plus 15 reverse lunges.

This made me sweat.  I am not sure how I stack up against everyone else but, seeing as I was dripping wet, it must have been a good workout.  I was able to to do 14 complete rounds plus 25 mountain climbers.  So, close to 15.

Left my sweat in the floor.

One of my coaches of my Kettlebell Bootcamp wants to try a workout of the week (WOW).  Every Tuesday he is going to tweet a workout that we can do at home with no or very little equipment.  We will have until the following Monday to complete the WOW and send him our results.  This is something new so, I hope people use it and he sticks with it.  I am going to give it a try.  You can follow along with me @kwasson123 or by clicking the link on the right.  If you want, you can even join in.  Follow my coach @KBbootcamps.  Send your results to him.  He may not know you but, it would be fun to bug him.

WOW #1

For time:
50-40-30-20-10
Jumping Jacks
Air Squats
Alternate Leg Raises

Complete each exercise in order at 50 reps each. After completing 50 alt. leg raises complete each exercise at 40 reps and so on down to 10 reps each. Complete the workout as fast as you can.

Time: 8:26

I had no clue what to expect from this first one.  It was over pretty quick my legs feel like they are full of lead so it must have done something and I was starting to sweat.  I am guessing the next will be a little more challenging.
