It’s nearly unfathomable to me that we’re over halfway through October, y’all (my Georgia roommate is influencing me).
I also can’t believe I only blogged twice last week! That makes me sad. But college happens, life happens, and sleep sorta happens. I promise this week is beefing up in regards to my posts! I’ve typed them up and scheduled them, so I can’t fail. Unless something hiccups in the scheduling, which might happen knowing me and my tendency to mess up those kinds of things.
Anyway, as usual, the first post of the week is my workouts from last week!
5 min. stair master warmup + leg workout
3 supersets of each:
- 10-12 pistol squats each leg + 20 Bulgarian split squats each leg
- 13-15 squats (90#) + 20 squat jumps
- 10-12 hamstring curls (70/80#) + 20 jump lunges
A relatively quick one, but my legs definitely still felt it. Efficiency!
Apple picking + 100s challenge
Ya know, walking and climbing trees and carrying bags of apples 😉 When I got back to studying in my dorm, I did 5 sets of 20 air squats, 20 pushups, and 20 sit-ups as study breaks.
5 min. row warmup + 7×10 workout from Purely Twins + dumbbell swing-burpee ladder
Wrote it out on my dorm whiteboard
There are actually no kettlebells at the BU FitRec (I should totally put that in the suggestion box), so I just used a 35# dumbbell for everything. The dumbbell swing-burpee ladder was KILLER after doing the 7×10 workout. I was flopping through some of those burpees. I did the 7×10 workout in 15:22 and the DB-burpee ladder in 18:36.
Look at me acting like I know something about CrossFit.
Random pushups + 8 minute ab tabata + yoga
I was busier than I anticipated on Thursday, so I just did some pushups and core before my usual yoga class. We’re working on headstands now!
Burpees in the dorm + 5 min. row warmup + two 10 min. AMRAP workouts + upper body strength
First 10 min. AMRAP (as many rounds as possible):
- 10 hand-release pushups
- 20 sumo deadlift high pulls (30# barbell)
- 30 side jump lunges
- 10 situps
I completed 3 rounds + 59 reps.
Second 10 min. AMRAP:
- 5 DB hang squat clean + press (20# DBs)
- 5 burpees with pushup
- 16 jump lunges
- 15 situps
I completed 4 rounds + 10 reps..I think.
And then I finished off with 3 sets of arnold presses + tricep dips!
Again, LOL at myself acting like I’m a CrossFitter. I try, I do.
twerking in the dorm
I was pretty sore from Friday’s workout, so I just partied in the dorm by myself since my roomie was gone.
Can I just mention this new fitness Instagram with which I’m OBSESSED? It’s @TwoBadBodies. They’re two former track athletes, and their workouts look super intense but still groovy and fun. And yes their bodies are pretty bada$$.
I’m going to steal so many of their moves.
Hope you all have an awesome Sunday!
So tell me:
Do you like CrossFit-type workouts?
Do you have a favorite fitness social media account?

You really should seek out and try CrossFit! I know you would love it and you would get to try out everything else it entails! 🙂
There are a few CrossFit gyms around here, and there’s a CrossFit inspired class at my university, so I will definitely try at least one of them out some day soon!
