So I definitely felt my abs this morning when I was getting out of bed! Isn’t that just the best sort of pain after having a great workout when you can still function but you know that you worked hard!!
It’s day 4 and that means a new type of workout. This morning was AAA which stands for Arms, Abs and A$$. I’m really enjoying switching up the workout types each day! This workout has 3 series which each consists of 4 moves. We do 2 sets of 15 reps for each series for a total of 49 minutes.
What do you need for this workout? Different sets of weights, resistance bands, strength slides and water. Its also good to have a mat and a towel nearby in case you need them.
PHASE 1 | DAY 4
2 SETS • 15 REPS
Ok so this workout really focuses on the negatives which means for example in the upright row you row up for 1 second and on the release you slow it down for 3 seconds. This is a really great way to build strength but it usually means that you won’t be able to lift as heavily as you normally do. It’s really good to have a selection of different weights so you can switch them out or do a drop set if you want to.
Bent Over Fly
Glute Bridge w/Loop
Weighted Ab Sit-Up
Knee Plank Heel Press
Bent Over Row
This workout is a lot more toning moves and so I didn’t burn as many calories as the cardio day but I still burned just under 300 cals in less time. I really like working negatives because it allows you to really feel the work in a short amount of time. The fact that you cycle through different types of movements (arms, abs, a$$) makes the workout fly by and before you know it you are on the second set.
There are still a couple different types of workouts to go through so I’m excited to see what they are so I can decide which ones will be my favorites! Are you doing the workouts?? What do you think so far?
