how do you like that title for a Monday?
hope you had a wonderful weekend! our weekend was fun, interesting, sad, frustrating, happy, silly, serious, and went by too fast. anyone else in shock that we are just about done with the first month of 2012??
k well, despite all the craziness here we are still somehow managing to get some workouts in. one of the best parts of our days.
here is what we did last week for our workouts
Monday – about 25 minutes of yoga
Wednesday – floor ab challenge from bodyrock that we have done back in March that we remember making our abs extremely sore and this workout did not disappoint the second time around. it is a 10 minute ab workout made up of 2 exercises: mountain climbers and toe touches.
if you want a really good ab workout,that if your push hard we promise your abs will be sore, this workout is for you. try this 10 minute ab workout and let us know how you did. it is fun and challenging.
we are on our way to get those great abs.
Friday – yoga intervals. same as above. we just pick different yoga poses to focus on that day. we are loving the focus that yoga brings to our fitness practice.
Saturday – active rest day – went for a quick 15-20 minute walk outside, do not really remember how long as we did not time it. just went out to move the legs some and get some Vit-D.
Sunday – ZWOD workout two. we loved Zuzana’s first workout, and could not wait to do this one. we had this workout planned for Friday, but we were still a little store from our Wednesday workout that we pushed it back.
we need all our strength for our HIIT workouts.
we feel we are slowly getting our strength back from taking time off from HIIT workouts. we are looking forward to upping our weight and increasing our intensity up soon.
and we have been doing our 2 minutes of plank each day before our workout as part of our warm-up. plus end our workouts with practicing headstands (plus a little cool down). some days the headstands feel easier, but others we are dying to stay up, haha. practice makes perfect right?
this week we plan to try to hold our plank for 2 minutes and 30 seconds! we are slowly increasing our time. we want to stick with the challenge so trying not to over do it so we just stop. we enjoy the idea of slowing increasing our plank holding time. every little second counts in our book.

Twins Question Anyone else doing a plank a day? Do you have any good ab workouts that always make your abs sore the next day? What is your favorite body part to workout?
Lori’s favorite body part to workout is her arms and Michelle’s favorite is shoulders. guess we both like to work the upper body more then the lower. though lately we have been enjoying doing ab exercises.
till next time,
