Tuesday WO: 45 minutes vinyasa yoga in the AM
400 swings right before lunch!
I did 10x10 2h swings as a warm up, then I did 2 sets doing 2h 10, rest; 2h 10+10 T, rest; 10 2h+10 T+ 5L+5R, rest; 10 2h rest, 10 2h+ 10 T +10R +10L. I then followed it with 5x20 2h swings. All was done with my 12 kg bell.
I really focused on keeping my core strong. I think I tended to bounce into my lower back with my swings. I'm trying to feel that mini ab "crunch" as I swing up to chest level.
The whole thing took me 18 minutes. It was harder than I thought. This challenge is going to be a real challenge. But that's good. I'm excited. I've needed some direction and since I don't feel like I can go back to BeSlam yet, I think this is good prep.
The yoga I did this morning was too rough if I'm going to be doing running and kettlebell. I need to stick to gentle flows. This morning was the first time I tried Tiffany Cruikshank on YogaGlo. She does a good workout, all moving with the breath. It was good strength and breath work. But I don't need that strength right now. I need more opening of my hamstrings, hips, and shoulders. But I was impressed with Tiffany and I recommend her if you want to practice yoga and get strong.
I want to try and at least log all of my swings on here, but I don't know if I'll be able to post everyday. I may try.
