C19 Challenge For Royal British Legion Part 2

Part 2 of my participation in the C19 Challenge, having decided to put my personal challenges to good use by raising some money for Royal British Legion.

Remember, the idea is to put everything into these simplified, mini workouts. They may be short but if you put it all in then they certainly are demanding! Let’s see how the next 2 days went…

Workout 3 (07/11) ‘Chipper For Time’

100 jumping lunges (each side), 80 butterfly sit ups, 60 burpees, 40 jack knives, 20 side to side press ups (each side).

If I’d been fresh this workout would have been easily manageable. Fun even. But I wasn’t and as a consequence the lunges sucked. Also, the burpees, which are usually a favourite of mine, I found extremely difficult. This was because my arms were still suffering from previous workouts meaning I had to lower the bottom stage of the burpee slowly, incorporating other muscle groups whilst prolonging the agony!

Workout 4 (08/11/20) 21, 15, 9 For Time

Walk out press ups, Plank drops (each side), reverse lunges (each side), tuck jumps

Nice and fast with this one. With hindsight I was a little conservative with my pace, using the initial stages as a warm up. After a few minutes I really picked up the pace and smashed through the remainder of the workout. Still suffering with DOMS but not as bad as previous days.

So that was the third and fourth home workout of the series. Keep and eye out for the next post to catch the remaining three of the series.
