Soooo, I survived workout #1 yesterday. It was hard but I loved it. I like challenging myself, pushing myself to do more than I think I can. It went something like this...
Did various forms of jumping rope for 5 minutes with 10 second breaks each minute. Did some squats and something called a paleo chair squat (I think) for 2 minutes - that was tough! That was just the warm up! The actual workout was 20 squats while holding a 15lb plate, 20 situps and 20 jump rope. We did as many reps as possible (AMRAP) for a total of 15 minutes. I managed to do almost 3 full reps.... was jumping rope when the buzzer went off. The first rep wasn't horrible, the 2nd I was starting to die and the 3rd I was wishing I was dead LOL. Oddly enough, the sit ups were the easiest for me. The biggest issue I had was that the squats made my legs feel like jello so when it came time to jump rope I couldn't lift them up!! Once the 15 minutes was up we went into the stretching portion and that finished up the workout. It was hard, but it felt good.
I am pretty sore today, not even gonna lie! Last night I took a hot bath with Epsom salts and I took some extra magnesium before I went to bed, and today I've been drinking lots of water. I'm not as sore as I thought I'd be, thankful for that!
I meant to take a "before" selfie but forgot, so all you get is the sweaty "after" selfie today!
