Hello, guys! Completely happy Monday to you! I hope you had a pleasant weekend! 🙂
One other week of health & eats is within the books! Final week was really form of a bizarre week on the exercise entrance. I used to be lively nearly each day, however fairly a couple of of my exercises had been fairly low-key and never too difficult, which I really admire these days. I used to get irritated if the exercise was too “simple” or I wouldn’t take into account it a “actual” exercise if I didn’t kill myself. Boy, have I come a great distance from that considering! Any day that I’m in a position to transfer and break a sweat is an efficient day and undoubtedly “counts” as a exercise!
Oh, how life modifications. Reside and study! Anyway, right here’s a recap of final week’s exercises in addition to a few of my favourite meals. I hope they provide you some enjoyable concepts in your personal!

This exercise was brief, however difficult. I completed slightly below 15 minutes. Should you like rowing, remember to give this one a strive!
I can’t do ring muscle-ups and don’t do bar muscle-ups effectively, so I opted for a hybrid Rx + scaled exercise for Open exercise 18.three. I used the weights for the Rx exercise, however then sub-ed in pull-ups for the muscle-ups. I completed 1+74.
Enjoyable companion exercise with my pal Marisa. It took us about 27 minutes to complete.
