Upper Body & Abs Inferno #2

This workout is a time challenge, however, I do want you to pay attention to your form. I didn't just carelessly whip through the exercises to get it done as fast as I could. I paid close attention to my body and when I felt that my form is going south, I stopped. I took a deep breath and then I went back to it. I'm pretty sure I have made this suggestion before, but it won't hurt to repeat it again. Use a mirror when you workout. Also record yourself. All you need is your smart phone or a little camera to see what you look like when you do these exercises. Pay attention to your back - are you rounding your spine a lot? What about your hips? Are you dropping them when you're in the plank position? You should look and feel graceful and confident in your form when you exercise even when it's hard. Just make sure you're confidence is justified. I still catch myself here and there in the mirror or on the video when I do something wrong. No body's perfect all the time, not even a pro and that's why constantly developing your body awareness goes a long... [more]

    I can do more reps and I feel more strength in my arms and core. However, it is hard to compare to the first time around because I have some changes. First, I am trying to do the pull ups etc hanging from my bedroom door. (I am hoping I don’t break it. My apartment is built funny so pull up bars don’t work.) So that makes this more challenging. If I can’t make it work I try hanging by one arm. Well I’m on my tippy toes but hopefully I’ll be able to hang. Second, I got a new swiss ball 65. But it is much bigger than my other ball (which was shrinking). I don’t think I ever inflated the other ball to the proper size. Maybe I should have gotten a 55. But I’m not going to buy another one so I have to make 65 work. Time to sleep. Looking forward to tomorrow’s workout.
