Increase Your Intensity HiitReps #20 – My Workout Today


Short and sweet workout for today. I didn’t feel like jumping around today and this one fit the bill. I love that it includes some old school BodyRock moves.

Workout Recap

I completed 5 rounds. Here is my time and my split for each round.

Increase Your Intensity Workout

I used my dip station, 40 lb Sandbag and used my 12 lb Ugi Ball for the front raise squats. For the dips, I put my Ugi ball out in front of my dip station and rested my feet on it.

2 Week Jump Start Begins Today (Including Printables)

Two-Week-Jump-Start Last year I lost 35 pounds following the guidelines in Jackie Warner’s book This Is Why You’re Fat. Losing weight is a struggle for me and this plan worked for me. I could not believe how the weight came off. I’ve kept most of the weight off (except about 6-7 pounds) and want to lose an additional 45 pounds.

It’s been about a year since I’ve seen the scale go down. We dealt with adoption loss and waiting last summer at this time and emotionally I just haven’t been there. It’s been almost 6 months since we’ve gotten home with Lindiwe and routine is coming back into our lives.

I’m ready (and I’m posting it here so I can’t back out)! I work my tail off 5 days a week working out and want to shed the layer over those hard-earned muscles. The extra jiggle I feel when doing burpees or jump squats, I’m not digging it.

Today is the day that I’m starting the 2 Week Jump Start with Jackie’s plan.

I’ve put together a printable to make it as easy as possible.

2 Week Jump Start Chart Black & White printable
2 Week Jump Start Chart Color printable

The reason I’m jumping back on this plan…
It works. It’s simple. And it’s easy to make foods that work for the entire family.

Onto the workout…instead of 21 rounds, I changed it to 28 rounds.
