1000 rep workout

Whah? Blogger changed formats. This is a bit unusual...hmmm. 

I came in today and (with much trepidation) did the Bodyrock TV 1000 rep workout. I don't know if it was cheating that instead of 50 reps of each thing I did 2 rounds through of 25 reps, but I don't care, I still did all 50 reps of each...It took me about 50 minutes to do it and the bonus ab work and I am not sure if I could have done 50 of each in a row and been done in time...(or not hurt my knee - as it is it's a bit stiff from all the tuck jumps). I could have gone a bit faster, but I was tired. I just wanted to get through them all.

The 1000 rep workout was 50 of each:
-burpees
-high knee (opposite elbow and knee in to touch while standing, one both sides=1)
-Pickup 20Lb weight to shoulder, squat, then put weight down, drop and do burpee with a tuck jump instead of regular hop.
-scissor lunges (one each side = 1. I *hate* those...)
-elevated plank bringing opposing elbow and knee in to tuck and touch (one both sides = 1)
-touch floor jumping jacks
-holding weight overhead with one arm do one leg reverse lunge and kick forward- L leg
-tuck jumps
-holding weight overhead with one arm do one leg reverse lunge and kick forward- R leg
-situps with criss crossing scissor legs, tucking arms in behind each leg, alternating (one both sides=1).

Then, 500 skips (high knee)

The weighted lunge kicks started with 20Lbs but after 10 of them I almost dropped the dumbbell and was worried I would end up twisting my shoulder or twinging my knee - I refuse to hurt myself...so I went down to 12 Lb which was much more possible to keep good form and still really be hard. Still though...wow. My knee is stiff after all the jumping - I didn't do a lot of the skipping high knee, as my knee was not interested, but I did it all... I was dripping sweat at the end. 

Then I did the bonus ab part and called it a day:
50 seconds on, 10 seconds plank/rest:
-oblique L side plank with reach up and down under and back
-oblique R side plank with reach up and down under and back
-Plank, alternating extending opposite arm and leg

Now...life calls. Must dash.
Later taters :)
