My friend Karen was in from out of town and stayed with me Friday night. She was telling me about a workout that she’s been using, so of course, I had to know more! In Phase 1, there are 3 sets of exercises with a Burnout set in between each one. Movements are small and pulses are constant. It was a bit confusing to Q, but we managed and felt the burn really quickly! But we had disco music blasting so that helped!
What helped the most was knowing that our reward at the end were Cranberry Orange Scones that Karen had made. She is the scone queen! They were even worth the burpees we had to do and that’s saying a lot!
Flip Flops was queen of the push ups and then hold halfway! (I was just lucky I didn’t hit my head on the ground while holding halfway!) Tex hammered through the squat hold and squat pulse. That really got to you after a short while – you only stand up fully to rest. Wheels got moving with the Mountain Climbers and kept our minds off of the grind as she commented on every other disco tune “I love this one”!
So much fun to exercise together!
