Hello everyone! Week 2 is here! I’m actually updating as I go along every day so its becoming a really nice journal log that you all get to see at the end of the week when I finish the Sunday workout during cooldown. A pretty nice cool down (after stretches), I’d say. Its been only one week and maybe its the mindset that I’m being more active than I had been so its putting me in a much more positive mood about everything.
If you didn’t catch my first week for this segment revival, you can find it here.
Tone It Up Bikini Series goes on for 8 weeks from what I remember so we are heading into Week 2. As I do these workouts, I’m also making sure to start building up the routine for next month so that I won’t stop although I’m debating whether to stick with a regular month of Tone It Up for fun and see how that goes. Less rambling this time and let’s start Week 2!
Bikini Series – Week 2
Booty (2 rounds of 25 reps/move)
Down Dog Booty Lifts (each side)
Squat Up-Downs (each side)
Booty Band Shuffle (each side)
Standing Booty Lifts (each side)
Arms & Abs Rest Day
2.3 km walk at lunch
I know how this routine is supposed to be a hardcore 8 weeks thing but seeing as I haven’t worked out a ton and my wrist was starting to hurt from either gardening or some exercise thing, I decided to take the Arms day off just to recuperate and prevent any possible injuries, because that would just make everything worse.
Run: 23:53 mins for 3.97km
I did a little longer run. Ended up skipping the 5 toning moves.
Abs (2 round of 25 reps)
Ball Rollout Equipment issues, changed to Push-ups
Ball Pike Equipment issues, changed to Oblique Twists
Total Body HIIT (2 rounds of 25 reps)
Single Leg Deadlift + Row (each side)
Squat Jacks (30 seconds)
Bridge + Chest Press
Bikini Walkout + Tummy Toners
Jump Rope (30 seconds)
Cardio Abs + Arms (2 rounds of 25 reps)
Knee to Elbow Crunch (each side)
Forward to Lateral Raise
Rest day! (kind of…)
No 5K run/walk due to resting up for tomorrow’s hiking day trip.
No 5 moves as well as did 4 hours of gardening (gardening update tomorrow).
This was a pretty good week. I kept up with a lot of the daily workouts and pushed through the more tired days, which helped to give myself a lot more energy. The running was also really good since I did a good pace that I was happy with. I’m starting to eat healthier as well. Definitely a great second week. I’ll check back next week with another update!
