I did this today for Day 3 of Fitin15 today because tomorrow needs to be a
cardio day for me! I remember this one from 30 Day Shape Up Summer
Challenge. It’s tough but nice and I feel like it’s doing me a lot of good.
I love the idea of yoga with weights! :)
Did this workout after the 20-Minute Belly, Buns and Thighs Yoga Workout,
for week 2 day 6 SpringAhead Challenge. I’ve done this workout a few times
before… Some of these holding poses are still tough but I’m making
progress :o) I had forgotten about the backwards hinge exercises at 36:30,
have found that those are wonderful for strengthening the knees and so that
alleviates arthritic pain. Thank you Jessica!
Oh my goodness! This workout was TOUGH! My first time doing it and it was
DEFINITELY a cardio yoga workout … my heart rate was up. I did it with
five pound weights (I’m trying to be more like Jessica although I’m not
NEARLY so flexible) and it was quite a workout. Boat pose is way hard for
me and that side to side thing when you had us hovering … UGH! I was
just praying for it to be over. A great workout though and LOVED the
setting – just a beautiful space. I hope you make more workouts like this
one. Joint friendly but really gets you working. Keep up the great work.
Love the variety in exercise and location. And your gentle spirit.
I will try this workout next week :)
Great video, thank you for your positive energy.
Blessings and Love,
I adore this spot/scenery. I wish you could do more practices or workouts
here. So lovely. (love the workout too by the way!!)
Switched the workout order for this week’s #SummerofStrength challenge. So
this one is for my Day 10 workout. I really like this one! I’ve improved on
the moves, but still have room for improvement! Thanks Jessica!
#SummerofStrength complete. Wow. I remember the last time I tried this
workout. I couldn’t complete it and had to find something else. This time,
I went through the entire thing! My balance was a little off with the “T”
exercise and the hover/swivel was a bit too much for me, but I did
everything else. I feel completely worked Thanks for a great workout,
#SummerofStrength day 13 done. Did better than I expected, but still need
some work on my balance. I also find the plank work challenging – I’m
really feeling it in my wrists. Guess that means I have some work to do to
improve my plank form too Practice, practice, practice. I do like the
way I’m feeling though – definitely more energy. Added a 2 mile walk
outside in the mid 80’s humidity. Really got my sweat on today.
#SOS challenge continues! Always loved this workout but dang if my hip
flexors aren’t super tight!! Got through it though and ready for stretching
tomorrow!!! Really loving this challenge!!
#sos day 13 found this one tough but really enjoyed it and I think I’ll be
using it again.
#SummerofStrength — day 13 — did this one today — I had to skip
yesterday getting ready for a family Christening. I used 2kg weights and I
really had to modify quite a bit — did not really have the strength or
balance for just one leg through most of it — but I tried not to compare
myself to you too much! I LOVED the setting for this one — it really
helped me to power through — I focused on how much I would love to have a
beautiful reading/relaxation (exercise??) nook like that one. Thanks
Day 13 of #SummerofStrength completed. I’m surprised at how sweaty I
am….another great workout.
Day 13 #SummerofStrength done! Did the 20 minute belly blasting cardio abs
workout before this and I really felt both! I have always tended to shy
away from yoga, but I am glad I tried this. I was surprised by how
challenging some of the moves were for me! I loved the pigeon stretches
though! Really looking forward to a nice active rest day and stretch
Wow….this was wonderful. It was quite a core workout the whole way
thru…the deep core muscles that we truly need strengthening. Thank you
Day 13 of #SummerofStrength done. My arms are a bit like jelly right now.
My second time doing this workout and I was able to get more reps done of
some of the exercises that are more challenging. Feels good to be stronger
and have more stamina. Thanks for that Jessica!
Day 13 done. I got through this with modifications but had to skip the
downward dog with the knee cross and pigeon pose. I am just not as flexible
as you are:/ I still got a good sweat. #SummerofStrength
#SummerofStrength doing tree pose with slippery pants…..not easy! I
always love this workout, it’s the perfect length and it is just hard
Finished! The hover exercise was so challenging. I look forward to the day
when I can hover all the way through with you! Today, there was a LOT of up
and down. I do love the stretch and abwork from the camel pose/diagonal
arms reach back, though.
Summer of Strength Day 13 done. Definitely some balance challenges in
Day 13 of #SummerOfStrength challenge complete. This one is tough. I used 3
and 5 lb weights. Thanks!
I had one of my bridal showers yesterday… so, this is a day late! I’m
glad I still got myself to do it! Woohoo for willpower! #SummerofStrength
Day 13 – of #SummerofStrength complete! I did this exercise this past
weekend. Even though I had to go in for work on a weekend, I felt great
having done this a few hours ahead of time.
