Week 7 was quite the fail but I did manage to get one workout in on Sunday. So I’m going to just cut to the chase and talk about that! Its time for a Sunday Zumba workout!
We are starting fresh this week and I vow that now that everything is pretty much done, I’m going to get back on track.
Walk – moderate speed
Time: 40 minutes
- 2 Hour Gardening (a lot of squatting..)
- 1.5 km moderate walking (evening walk)
Our pool is finally open and today is literally 42C with the humidex and for those who don’t know, we rig up an A/C unit in our bedroom to cool down the house with our fan. Surprisingly with the new roof which is white to repel the heat, it helps to keep the house pretty cool. However, no better time to go hang out in the pool that my husband finally got to work after last year’s crazy algae problem. We spent almost an hour in there and of course, it wouldn’t be right to not own up to my promise that if he got the pool open again that I’d do an extra lot of pool workouts.
I did a variation of this one about 2 to 3 times depending on which moves. It did definitely give my obliques the most workout. Refreshing and fun. I actually even did some swimming but its hard to really quantify how much of swimming it did. We didn’t sit around so we were just moving about a lot. Anyways, I love pool workouts because my shoulder and knee joints sometimes take the zumba and the weights really badly so this helps a lot. I’m hoping to find some more exercises to keep some variety going.
That’s it for the last two weeks!
Sorry for combining both together but Week 7 was kind of a disaster so it was just easier to do it this way!
