I will join in, too - I participate in the Just the Workouts check in, too, but these are crazy times and the more the merrier -

Today was: Ellen's Core Cardio (from her streaming site) and Trifecta Pilates - (also streaming) Tone, Burn & Stretch (half of it - it was a long one at 45 minutes).

Will try to add on a spark during my work from home day and a walk this evening. Taking walks every evening has been good for my soul and my dogs and my daughter!

I hesitate to say what my focus will be for the month b/c I have been very unfocused as of late but so far Pilates is hitting the spot. I like Trifecta b/c I think being consistent with it will help me improve my Pilates practice.

hope everyone stays safe, sane and healthy today!

I'll do it I'm going to start my Tapout XT rotation tonight, and this time I need to actually complete it!! Mike Karpenko is super motivating to me, even more so on his YouTube channel, which I've been following. So hopefully adding the accountability here will make me successful! I do plan to replace the yoga workout with something else, but otherwise plan to do the rotation as written.

ETA: Original plan out the window already Just going to work through my collection to see what clicks for me!

1. Tapout XT - Cross Core Combat
2. Cathe ICE -To the Mat Legs & Glutes
3. Les Mills Combat - Combat Kickstart
4. WWW Power Series - Upper Body 1
5. YouTube channel Nate Bower Fitness - Boxing Beats
6. Elliptical workout
7. Elliptical workout

Okay, I'll post in both places - double the accountability!!

April 1 - Tracy Anderson Method Express Arms
I've been doing this one consistently, hoping to see some results from it.

April 2 - Kettlenetics KB Elements + Firm Calorie Killer + Leslie Sansone 5 Really Big Miles (only 20 minutes as a final steady state workout)
I forgot how much fun Calorie killer is - and it's not kidding about killing those calories either!

April 3 - Youtube Cardio Core 10 mins + Cardio Sculpt Blaster + 20 mins of Leslie 5 Really Big Miles
It was my first time doing Cardio Sculpt Blaster - seemed a bit short at only 35 minutes so added on a Leslie again.

April 4 - Cardio and Core 20 minutes + 20 minutes floorwork all off YT

April 5 - Rest Day, originally I was in the mood to do a light resistance band workout today but I found that all my bands were too old and snapped easily so I just took a day off. Need to get new ones soon!
