Jump Jump

Is anybody else feeling the heat?! Working in the mountains is so nice it’s cool and breezy, but once down the hill the 100 degree weather kicks in, but at lease I don’t have the Memphis humidity!

Today’s lunch was the same as yesterdays , no need for pics. I did have quite a bit of fruit today (that never made it to my camera), watermelon, peach, an apple, and apricots! I just love summer fruits and just can’t get enough of them. On the way home from work today I was dreading my evening workout session with Jillian. The weather just turns my soul off to working out.

Some how I managed to get one sweaty living room workout in!! This book is seriously kicking my butt big time!!! I have never been more challenged, (well maybe a little in marathon training).

Have you ever tried a scorpion push up?

I added a little BBQ sauce to the mix, simple and delicious!

Question: What is the hardest/most challenging workout you have ever done??

You are right about not having the Memphis humidity! It's awful right now! That workout sounds tough!! I guess I would say that I feel I can challenge myself the most with running!!

Mica said...

You and the hubby look so hardcore doing that workout!

I am so feeling the heat and has definitely been sucking out my running motivation.

Jillian's No More Trouble Zones is one of the hardest strength training DVD's I have ever done.

One of the most challenging workouts I've done is called a Hurricane workout. I did it with my personal trainer and it was pretty much an hour of non-stop moving. After a set of weights, I would hop on a treadmill and sprint at a pace of 7 min/mile at a steep incline for 3 minutes, then we would go back to the weights and do the treadmill again or change it up and sprint on the bikes or elliptical. It was hardcore!

hardest workout? doing a bootcamp style workout with a mixed martial arts coach (like UFC style). and I am NOT an MMA kind of girl. I wanted to collapse!

Awesome action shots! :-)

I've never heard of the scorpion push up, they look hard. In soccer we use to do the knee tuck jump.

It is definitely not that hot here. Knock on wood!!!! But my best friend is in Arizona and she is baking.

The push ups look beyond intense! Wowsa.

Those workouts look intense! I've never heard of the scorpion push-up! I'm loving the walking push-up (is that what it's called?) from the 30-day shred!

Jessica said...

It's not that hot here but it's been pretty hot. I'm just glad the humidity has gone down.

My hardest workouts are with my trainer because she shows NO mercy!

I need to pick up making the cut - I'm sure I'd love the exercises!

wow Bobbi!! Those pics are amazing! Love the definition in your legs and arms!

Last night I actually did Jillian Michaels' Banish Fat Boost Metabolism and it was tough!!! I need to do a lot more work in my arms and shoulders

RunToFinish said...

brandi said...

that push up looks crazy!

Jillian is crazy no doubt, but that book works miracles!

Meghann said...

You need to send me a copy of that book! Unfortuantely I can't doo knee jumps like that in my living room as I live on the second story. Maybe I should try it on my next tennis court work out. Love it!

Rose said...

That workout looks intense! I scrolled quickly, and it looks like stop motion - try it!

Sidenote: I love the decor of your living room! It reminds me that I need style.

Quinn said...

That circuit training looks RIDICULOUS! And the scorpion push-ups? Seriously?

Lauren @ Team Giles said...
