BodyRock Log Jan 29th, 2012

Monday, January 30, 2012

I think yesterday (Sunday Jan 28th) I did quite a feat! Woke up after my afternoon nap at nearly 6pm, then rushed to perform my prayer THEN quickly started warm up 2 minute and 16-min BodyRock workout, ended with 1 min stretches. And another rush to the bathroom to take a shower before drove to the Masjid with my mom at around 6:40pm and all done in about 1 hour! Normally, all this will take maybe 2 to 3 hours as I'm well known in family as the sloth, not moving too fast, hehe.

Phew, didn't know how I managed to do everything as I didn't see myself as a super person who did lots of things in short time but I'm so happy as I think I managed balance my life between religion and world: #1 did my workout and #2 afterward, went to the Masjid for prayers jemaah (means prayers in a group that lead by an Imam) and listen to Islamic forum related to Maulidur Rasul. Oh, and bananas were my hero as I didn't had much time to stop and eat for post-workout so I brought my water bottle and bananas to eat at the Masjid, clean & tidy, no crumbs nor sticky fall outs, hehe.

My workout for Jan 29th, 2012:
1. Warm up 2-min (3 x 30s exercise /10s rest) with jump rope, total 225 jumps

2. BodyRock 30-Day Challenge Week 3 Day 2 Hot Right Now Workout

#1 1 Push-up + Burpee + Tuck Jump = 4
#2 HKs = 80
#3 Switch Lunge = 16
#4 HKs = 60
#5 Press up with Spider Knee (did Modified Pushup, at push down I did the Spider Knee) = 11

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Another Fit Test this Saturday and at first, not doing too well, maybe I need to warm up a bit before starting my workout and I still sore from previous day, haha. Anyhow, had two session, afternoon and night and I think it's much better to do this to get better performance :D

Gosh, now I know how important muscles for my daily things, even simple things like sitting down, walking up/down few stairs and even throw myself into bed. Now, for every movement, I feel my butt and thighs on fire but thankfully lesser aches, hehe.

My workout for Jan 28th, 2012:

    I like your comment about how, when a muscle is sore, you realize all the different ways you use that muscle in everyday movements. Very true.

Saturday, January 28, 2012

I finally completed half of the challenges, done Week 1 and Week 2, WooHoo! In the middle, I had 7 days of no exercise at all but I don't regret it too much as I realized I need rest more, especially after my 1st time day trip (business trip) to out of town, need 2 hrs 10 min flight per trip, went with 1st flight from town and the 2nd last flight back. After after the business trip, there were 2 days of trying to finish tasks at work as much as I can before long holidays, 5 days of weekends, Chinese New Year (2 days) and 1 day off.

***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****

So, after the so-call 2 weeks (including the 7 days off, should be 3 weeks, haha), here's my updated body measurements result, taken on Saturday Jan 28th 06:00hrs, after my Subuh prayer, those in brackets are my starting numbers for the 30-day Challenge:
- Neck = 12.5" (12.5")

- Chest/Boobs = 34" (34")
- Below breasts = 26.5" (26.5")

- Upper arm = 10" (10")
- Lower arm = 8.24" (8")

- Waist = 29" (30")
- Below navel = 35.5" (34")

- Hips = 36.5" (36")
- Butt = 38" (39")

- Upper thigh = 22" (22.5")
- Lower thigh = 16" (15.5")
- Calf = 13.25" (13.5")

So, what increased, what's decreased, what's the total of my reduction and increment?
No change:
- Neck = 12.5"
- Chest/Boobs = 34"
- Below breasts = 26.5"
- Upper arm = 10"

Increased:
- Lower arm = 8.25" (8") ~ +0.25"
- Below navel = 35.5" (34") ~ +1.5"
- Hips = 36.5" (36") ~ +0.5"
- Lower thigh = 16" (15.5") ~ +0.5"
TOTAL = +2.75"

REDUCED!
- Waist = 29" (30") ~ -1"
- Butt = 38" (39") ~ -1"
- Upper thigh = 22" (22.5") ~ -0.5"
- Calf = 13.25" (13.5") ~ -0.25"
TOTAL = -2.75"

I guess, the conclusion is even, haha.

Well, at least for my goal measurements, from 5, I got one bull's eye, 3 are reduced :D
- GOAL Chest = 34" ~ DONE!
- GOAL Under bust = 26" ~ current 26.5", which is reduced, so 0.5" to go
- GOAL Waist = 26" ~ current 29", which is reduced, so 3" to go
- GOAL Hips = 34" ~ current 36.5", which is increased, so 2.5" to go
- GOAL Thigh = 20" ~ current 22", which is reduced, so 2" to go

    great job on reducing some areas of your body. Gaining inches took time, and do not melt fast. Keep up good work.

BodyRock Log, Jump Rope Jan 27th, 2012

Friday, January 27, 2012

Today, I paid the price of doing workout BodyRock Week 2 Day 5, my butt and thighs still feel so sore, a little bit pain when sitting down, haha. I guess that's why they called the workout, Glory to the Booty! I was so drenched with sweat that several times I had to stop to wipe off the sweat, even my mat is spotted with sweat, hehe. And of course, during the stops, I sipped water, looking at all those sweat made me thirsty!

Luckily I did Sean's first because I dunno if I would ever managed to continue with Sean's if I did Lisa's first! And unfortunately, I couldn't continue jump rope after the BodyRock workouts as planned as no too much energy left, haha.

My workout for Jan 27th, 2012:
1. Jump Rope Twist, 60x, in 1 minute 21s.

2. BodyRock 30-Day Challenge Week 2 Day 5 Glory to the Booty Workout (Lisa's) & Sean's Back & Biceps

Sean's Back & Biceps result:
Timer: 3 minutes for each exercises
Equipment: A pair of 3lbs dumbbells
Workout:
#1 Bicep Curls with weight = 37
#2 Bent Over Row with weight = 43

Glory to the Booty Workout result:
Equipment: A pair of 30lbs dumbbells
Workout:
** High Knee Skips, I did High Knee March slowly
#1 100 High Knee Skips
#2 100 Lunge kicks (50 each leg) with weight
* I alternate between holding both weights at shoulder height, holding only one dumbbells and no weight at all
#3 100 High Knee Skips
#4 100 squats with weight
* same like #2, alternate with and without weights
#5 100 High Knee Skips
#6 25 Straight Abs
#7 25 V Abs Left
#8 25 V Abs Right
#9 25 Bicycle Abs
Time = 34:52 (maybe because of resting a lot to wipe off sweat and drink water, hehe)

3. Stretches 5:10

Total workout = 1:21 + 6:00 + 34:52 + 5:10 = 47:23 ~ round up as 47 minutes


***** forgot to add earlier *****
I forgot to put in blog that on 16th January, I did 500 jumps (scissors jump) and on Jan 27th, as I wrote way above this blog, 60 twist jumps.

For tracking my January 2012 jump rope goal:
Total jumps = 500 + 60 = 560
Goal = 10K
Previous total = 2510
Current total = 2510 + 560 = 3070

It's nearly end of January and I haven't even reach 5K! So, new goal = 5K
Jumps to reach my goal = 5000 - 3070 = 1930 (including Jan 28th, 4 days left!)
