The 12 Days of Torture

I took an exercise class today after my five mile run.  It was called Mid Day Blast.  It was only thirty minutes long but it was an intense thirty minutes.

And yes that is sweat on my shirt :-)

Jess is the teacher for this class and every week she has given us a completely different set of exercises.  I find her method of teaching to be both fun and challenging.  My body never knows what it's in for and my body feels that thirty minutes for a few days after.

At the start of class Jess told us the theme was The Twelve Days Of Torture  Christmas (torture by my definition). She had twelve different exercises that we would be doing over and over again much like the versus in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas.  We had to do (not necessarily in this order) planks, side planks, jumping jacks, cross over lunges, superman's, inchworms, burpees, push ups, bridges with marching feet, trees, calf raises, and squats.  We did each exercise in thirty second intervals and I was feeling it (still am btw :-)!  I was going to run tomorrow but I think I may refrain and do some walking instead :-)

If you're bored with your current workout try something different and mix it up! This class has taught me some new moves to do during my workouts.  I need to keep my body guessing.  Have a healthy day. No matter what!
