Workout and Word of the Day #106 (FB Day #1)

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

This was Day 1 of my 8 week workout program.  Luckily for me, it was fitness testing day which was a nice way to ease myself into the program.  It has been a long time since I have done a fitness test and I don’t know if I have ever really stuck with a program and taken consistent measurements.  I chose this program to take the guess work out of my workouts.  Please feel free to join along with me!

Workout of the Day: Fitness Testing + Improve your feet arches the right way + Yoga

Always remember to warm-up for your workout:

Fitness Blender Physical Fitness Test:

This video will walk you through the physical fitness test.  I wrote down my results so that I can compare them to future results.  It starts with a 1 mile run or walk.  I was going to skip this since I do not have a treadmill and I did not really want to run through my neighborhood.  I usually just stick to my road since this neighborhood is out in the country and sometimes has dogs that are loose or even wild pigs.  I do see folks walking and running, but I do not think it is that pedestrian friendly.  Better safe than sorry, right.  I still got myself to go for a 1 mile walk.  At least it is something considering I was not even going to do it.

5 Minute cool-down and stretching:

After this, I went on with my day for a few hours before returning to my mat for yoga and something dance-related.

Improve your feet arches the right way:

This was a little different from foot stretches I have done in the past.  Please be very careful and gentle with your feet listen to your body and do not overdo it.

Yoga for a Healthy Liver:

Word of the Day:

inscrutable– adjective

  1. Incapable of being investigated, analyzed, or scrutinized: impenetrable.
  2. Not easily understood; mysterious; unfathomable.

Here are my physical fitness test results:

  1. 1 Mile walk- 20:42
  2. Push-ups- 20
  3. Squats- 35
  4. Static Plank- 00:29.55
  5. Sit and Reach- 3.4 inches

I have definitely surpassed these stats in the past.  Just last summer I was able to do 100 full push-ups.  I can also do more squats and probably hold the plank longer, but I was focusing on good form and the minute I broke my form I stopped.  What are you pft results comment below or link me to a post if you like.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day.  See you next time!

❤ Alana
