Phew. So much to tell you, so little time!!
We’ll start with weekly moves and grooves, and then I’ll get to some more fun stuff tomorrow 🙂
My workouts have just been happening as they are able to, and that’s what my body and mind appreciate right now. I don’t need to be lifting heavy “X” number of times or anything. Bodyweight workouts (especially outdoors now!) are amazing and keeping me sane during this crazy time of year!
circuit workout by the river
- bench toe taps
- decline knee to elbows
- bar jumpovers = jump over and back a very low bar
- in and outs
Ahh it was so beautiful to get the blood flowing outside!
jog to gym + circuit + random exercises + lots of walking!
For the circuit, I did 3 rounds of:
- 5 man makers (15# dbs)
- 10 alternating weighted pistol squats
- 50 high knees
- 12 crazy Russian twists
- 10 burpees
- 20 weighted jump lunges
Then my body was tired and I just went up to the track to jog, do some box jumps, BOSU pushups, and some PUNCHING!
I probably looked like a fool, because I’ve never done boxing or kick boxing before. But I was feeling adventurous…
…but then I stopped because boxing without gloves is not a good idea. Go figure.
100 burpee workout
- 10 pushup burpees
- 10 tuck jump burpees
- 10 plank jack burpees
- 10 spiderman pushup burpees
- 10 180 degree burpees
- 10 single leg (R) burpees
- 10 single leg (L) burpees
- 10 regular burpees
- 10 broad jump burpees
- 10 pushup to T burpees
A lot of these variations can be found in my burpee video here!
I wanted to do a quick workout before class because I slept in a little on Friday morning. Burpees are my default! This took around 11 minutes.
BONUS: Boston University broke the Guinness World Record for most people doing pushups at the same time!
I don’t even know how many people were there, but we did it! We all did 10 pushups simultaneously. Woohoo!
Purely Twins’ 10 minute challenge + swing dancing!
I did 50 more or less…I can’t count with these kinds of workouts.
In the evening, my friends and I got groovy with some swing dancing downtown!
My Wednesday workout buddy, PJ, and me pretending that we know what we’re doing.

Gotta go, friends! I’ll be back tomorrow!
So tell me:
What was your most fun workout this week?
Have you ever gone swing dancing before?
