Sit-Ups – messed me up

Posted by terrepruitt on June 1, 2011

Ok, so I did my ten minute workout.  I did it in the afternoon instead of the morning because I had Nia class to teach today and afternoon is the time my schedule allowed me to do it.

I ALMOST did all ten exercises twice in 10 minutes.  I was going very fast.  I am not able to do the length of lunges I want because of my right toe/foot, so that makes it faster–I think.  But I had my list propped up (the list pictured in the Ten Minute Workout post) and I jumped from my triceps kick backs to sit-ups.  When I looked up to see what was next I realized that I skipped hamstring curls so I did those.  Then I did my sit-ups again.  So I got messed up . . . it wasn’t really the sit-ups that messed me up.  🙂  Then as I was doing the last set of stability ball passes, I realized I was counting only on the top touch down.

So, I think that because I was going so fast I was basically able to do the list twice going over by 33 seconds.  But YOU do it your way.  Slow, fast, heavy, light, whatever you need to do to get moving for 10 minutes.

Ok, so?  Did YOU do it today?
