    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    I did 20 minutes on my new to me TM- climbing hills at 6-10%. Then I did 2 rounds of a full body workout with a trainer on Ifit. So weird - I couldn't tell if he had started the reps or was still demo-ing and then it didn't seem like he was counting. And he kept slowing down mid rep to demo...

    I did STS 2.0 Lower Body 1 today. I cut out the side lunges because of time limits. I like how she has the hip thrusts in this one as the main workout instead of the 100 rep challenge from X Train. I used my barbell for this time and I like it with the barbell.

    STS 2.0 Upper Body 1 this morning. I skipped around and cut out different moves because I didn't have a full hour to workout this morning. I was planning to take off early today and go for a bike ride but now its supposed to be windy so I don't know.

    Jolie- I've been looking into a walking pad too! For the office under my standing desk. You'll have to let me know how you like yours and what brand you got. I taught my dog to walk on the TM with me last winter. He's probably forgotten because we don't do it all summer. I first...

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    I finally had a weekend off work. I did a short full body tabata with Penny in the am and went for a bike ride in the afternoon. I fixed my flat on my road bike from a couple weeks earlier when I got a flat riding into work! It had 3 puncture holes in it. I also switched out the saddle to...

    I did a Penny Barnshaw Strength this morning. This was a good series that she put together. (linking the playlist but I only did the Strong & Lean workouts in the playlist). Good full body, efficient strength work...

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    I get pretty "breathless" climbing hills on my mountain biking rides... hills and altitude do me in every time! Did you all see the new Cathe DVDs? I love that they are already filmed so we don't have to wait forever!!

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    I went for a bike ride last night, 7.8 miles and it started raining on me - I made it back before it really started pouring but I was pretty wet regardless! This morning I did Tracy Steen, another good strength based instructor. 30 minutes, supersets repeated 3x. My dog was laying on my...

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    Roxie - I hear you on Bodi- I've wanted to try a couple programs they have out but the subscription is expensive - though the DVDs were always expensive too and now those are sitting on my shelf as "stale" workout series. I find it hard to pay for subscriptions when content on youtube that...

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    This morning I pulled up a Sydney Cummings Houdyshell workout on Youtube from her Summer Program I haven't done her in a long time - I got sick of her chatter. This morning didn't seem so bad. 4 rounds of each move in a 2,2 count.

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    Its getting to be too dark and cold in the AM when I have to start my workouts - today I moved back to the basement for a 30 minute indoor cycle. I put my IFit membership on hold and it doesn't start back up again until next week so I just put on a cycling ride-along video from youtube. They...

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for September 2023

    No workout yet this weekend. We went camping with my son and his girlfriend Friday night and fishing Saturday morning. This morning my daughter dragged me out to the hot air ballon launch but the wind was too strong so they weren't allowed to launch.

    Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for August 2023

    I did a Lindsay Bomgren YT back and biceps this morning. She keeps the work moving! I need to get up and get going earlier (or get to bed earlier!) so I have more time in the AM to workout.
