Day 286 (R, 111013) — UPs Workout Day 14

Exercise. Since I did not get to my workout yesterday, I am repeating this portion of yesterday’s post today.

Yesterday’s Today’s workout — Day 14 of my UPs workout plan (a repeat of Day 11) — is going to be tough.

Last week, this workout took more than 19 minutes to complete.  Since I am focusing on form this week, concentrating on doing the exercises correctly, I expect it may take me more like 30 minutes this time.  If I am going to have any hope of not gaining several pounds before my weigh-in on Saturday, I need to work up a big sweat today and Friday.

Also, I am toying with the idea of using an alternate form of the exercises today (e.g. a dive bomber instead of a standard push-up or a Hindu squat instead of a standard squat).  What do you think?

If you have a suggestion about my workout for today, please leave it in the comments below.

Review: Tough but good today. I felt strong and did almost all of my reps with good form.

I was wrong above when I said it might take longer today . . . it went a bit faster today than Monday.

I think it was because the sets, while doubled for squats and push-ups, were of sufficiently fewer reps that I didn’t have to rest much during the workout.

No alternative versions of the exercises today . . . just good form. Maybe tomorrow . . . .
