The #AprilArmsChallenge for today is “Triceps Tuesdays”. It’s a superset i.e. where two exercises that are grouped together which are completed back to back with minimal rest between each exercise. The exercises are :
- Double Arm Dumbbell Triceps Kickbacks – 12 reps
- Triceps Plank Hold : 10 – 20 seconds.
I did 15 reps of Double Arm Dumbbell Triceps Kickbacks and 15 seconds Triceps Plank Hold. Repeated this whole set for 5 times. I did this workout in the morning and completed it in less than 15 minutes. Later I did the following exercises :
- 50 crunches ( the first 30 were a breeze, the rest were pretty difficult)
- 45 second wall sit
- 45 second plank ( I started trembling after 20 seconds, but put a goal to complete it ).
- 20 squats
- 30 forward lunges
I burned about 90 calories and 30% body fat for doing these exercises.
In the evening I completed the 30 Day Shred : Level 1 Day 9. Today instead of following Jillian, I muted the exercise and did all by myself. As its almost the end of Level 1the exercises were pretty easy from start to end and I burned 229 calories. I made a goal in the morning to burn around 300 calories and did it. Tomorrow is the last day of Level 1 and cant wait to start Level 2 ( which according to many is the hardest level ).
