Begin Plyo for a few weeks

Back to Plyo for a few weeks.  I have a love/hate relationship with Plyo. Everything seems like it should be so easy. That is, until you are doing it. You’d have no idea I was a gymnast in school after watching me try to balance on one foot. Although, I must say… Today was much easier than when I did it the first round. Proof that I am getting stronger. 🙂

Here’s what Mark and I did today:

Plyo 4

Leg press machine single leg no weight 15 each leg

Lunges no weight 15 out, 15 back

3 sets

Bosu ball and mat:

Lay on back, foot on ball, single leg bring back x 15 each leg

Standing single leg stationary lunges with back foot on the bosu ball. 15 each leg

Plank position, hands on ground, feet on ball. Take left leg to floor then back to the ball, then right leg to the floor, then back to the ball, etc…. 10 each side (or count to 20)

3 sets

Incline sit up chair wth 8 lb ball. Bounce ball each side 3×30

Bosu Ball and bench + 10 lbs

Kneel on bosu ball, sit tall. Single arm press x 10 each side

Plank with single foot on ball, elbows on bench, bring ball to chest x 10 each side

Size plank, no ball. Raise hip to sky and squeeze x 10 each side

2 sets (was supposed to be 3, but we ran out of time)


My post work out meal/breakfast was a bit bigger than usual today. It’s weird to say, but I’m choking it down. So good but so filling.  500 calories, 94 carbs, 12 g fat and 15 g protein including the half banana and Spark pre work out.  Low on protein and high on carbs – seems to be a better pre work out meal but ooh well. I am not focusing on that too much.

Post workout

So, my plan for the rest of the day is to stay on track with my food plan (shouldn’t be an issue) and since Mark is running tonight, I don’t have to wait for him to get home before I go to the gym. Will aim for around 4 or 4:30. Seems like it might be a good day for cycle. 🙂
