Joe Abs 5th BeachBody workout of 2019 – January 5, 2019.
Today my wife Stacia Kennedy joined me for my BeachBody workout. She’s had great success using Core De Force programs in the past, so I chose to go with a workout she was familiar with – MMA Shred from Core De Force and BeachBody on Demand. It was a really sweaty workout and we were also joined by two year old Ava Kalea who really wanted to join in the fun.
This is the 4th Joe Abs BeachBody workout of 2019 – Shift Shop Strength :25 . It’s a short workout and I did it with light weights and modifications because of the injuries to my big toes.
I apologize for the messed up audio – did not have the time to figure out what went wrong.
The third Joe Abs BeachBody workout of 2019 – today I chose to go with the familiar Body Beast program and did Build Shoulders. Body Beast is a very good BeachBody fitness program centered around lifting weights and getting Beasty!
Today’s BeachBody Workout: Total Body Core – Day 1 of BeachBody 80 Obsession
As I touched on in my blog post earlier today, my new schedule was derailed, but I had the opportunity to practice patience and flexibility. It also gave me the chance to make sure I got my BeachBody workout in no matter what.
Today’s BeachBody on Demand workout was Total Body Core, Day 1 of the 80 Day Obsession program with Autumn Calabrese. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the workout and how much it made me sweat. Autumn is a very experience trainer who explains the exercises very well and helps to motivate throughout the program.
Yesterday’s workout activity was decent, although not great. The highlight was probably finishing the 3rd day in a row of the 3 Week Yoga Retreat from BeachBody on Demand.
I only did 35 minutes of cardio and logged in 17,987 steps in on my fitness tracker and the VeryFitPro app. Didn’t really do a lot of other exercise.
Getting excited about going to Mammoth Mountain tomorrow. Looks like it is going to be really nice skiing and riding.
Still the same, want to get in some good exercise today – probably won’t be on a cardio machine or lifting weights for the next 4 days or so (but I am sure my legs will be feeling it each and every day).
Yesterday was a good get back on track day – with both my workouts (activity) and nutrition. I set a personal recent record for steps with 26,699 steps – although I only spent 33 minutes 33 seconds on the cardio machine.
Perhaps the highlight was doing Day 2 of the 3 Week Yoga Retreat on BeachBody on Demand: Stretch. Each day I do yoga, I realize that I’m not nearly as limber nor in as good condition as I thought. Yoga is really a good practice and I’m really enjoying it – although I do have to admit it is difficult to stay focused on it (or anything else) if the 2 year old Ava Kalea is “up and at em”. She usually demands (and deserves) my attention.
Some days I tank so bad, I just don’t want to document my workouts. Wednesday was one of them. I didn’t do a lot.
I had a couple of good excuses. 1) It was my mom’s birthday. Ok – she lives in Scottsdale and didn’t even answer her phone when I called – so it wasn’t a good excuse at all. 2) My friend from way back (Enatai elementary in Bellevue, Washington) Brook Lamkin and his wife Sharon drove down from their beach house in San Clemente. That was a better excuse and it was great to get to spend time with them, but I wish I had been stronger and set a better example.
The best thing about my activity is that I started a “3 Week Yoga Retreat” on BeachBody on Demand. The first session that I did was core and I felt it. I haven’t done a lot of yoga in the past, but do want to do more and get better at it. This was a decent start.
Yesterday did not turn out to be much of a workout day for me. It’s easy to make excuses, but it was just one of those days. Got busy with Ava Kalea during the day and since the Seahawks were on Monday Night Football, I kind of let the day get away from me.
The lone bright spot was that I did 66 minutes of cardio – but I still fell short of my 20k steps goal. I got in 17,918 steps …
The worst part about the day besides not working out, was that I broke down and ate a bunch of cookies. What was even worse was that I was the one who bought and baked the premade cookie dough …
I’ll just chalk that up as this week’s cheat day – and work a lot harder today.
