Yesterday afternoon I completed a quick but intense workout that left me sore. I am so happy to say that I will NOT be picking up a single dumbbell or weight today.
As I have mentioned in my Postpartum Journey Posts, I would like to practice and gain strength to be able to do consecutive full range Pull-Ups. Right now I can only do 1. My goal is 4 and I am giving myself 2 months. Ever since that collarbone injury back in early February, Pull-ups have been extremely tough because they place an enormous amount of stress on my shoulder. That is why I have been slowly working up to them! The Jumping Pull-ups in this workout are a great way to target all the muscles a normal Pull-up would, without placing too much stress on the upper body.
This is Marc’s new Pull-up Bar that I got him for his birthday. It is kind of like a present to me too.
Here is the workout:
Bosu Ball at Home Workout
Warm-up 100 jumping jacks, 100 butt kicks, 100 jump rope passes
(I did both close and wide grip jumping pull-ups)
8 Bosu Burpee to Press
8 Jumping pull-ups
30 seconds Bosu side shuffle
30 seconds Plank dips on the bosu
8 Bosu Squats
Repeat this circuit 4x.
The jumping pull-ups got me! My back is feeling it this morning
The game plan for this weekend revolves around Christmas!! Tonight I am making some Christmas Cookies with my mom! I will be sure to share the recipe if they come out good.
I will also be finishing up some shopping. I have a few stores I need to quickly get to at some point this weekend. I’m sure the stores will be a ZOO.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
I would have loved to film my workout but I didn’t have someone to help me film!!
Here is an Example of a Jumping Pull-up
