I did not exercise during the day and realized that if I wanted to end the day somewhere close to my calorie limit, I needed to do at least 30 minutes of cross training. Per usual, I really did not want to exercise but I did.
I started with the BodyRock. I'm looking at the exercise video as I type this and I realized that during froggers, I don't stick my butt in the air. I keep my body in plank position which may decrease the the number of froggers and spidermans I can do. During divebombers, I have my feet together, which also may affect the number of divebombers I can do. You can see how many of each exercise that I did by looking at the file linked on the side of this blog.
ZWOW #3 ended up being a lot harder than I thought. She has us doing 4 exercises (raised back leg lunges, super mans / pushups, ski jumps, lunge jumps), increasing and decreasing the # of reps in a pyramid scheme (5, 10, 15, 10, 5). The 15 rep round SUCKED! I also realized that I was better at jump lunges in 1 leg than the other. I haven't done that many ZWOW's but I think that they're excellent. I never knew how to make split jump lunges easier, but what Z does in this exercise video is a very good pre-split lunge / post-lunge exercise. Similarly, lately, I've been wanting to get good at one legged squats. I recently saw Z do one in one of her videos and my jaw dropped. I was wondering how low one should / can go when they do such squats, and Z went pretty low. In fact, she was practically sitting on the ground. I can pistol squat to the point of sitting in a chair, but not much lower than that. I would like to get be able to do a single legged squat as low as Ms. Z. I think the one - legged lunges help with that.
