Progress

30/3/20 – I was a little confused with the instructions so I did 45 seconds for each of the side planks and it just about killed me. I also used weight for the Russian twists to ramp things up a bit. The rest of the core movements were okay. I found my arms struggling more than my abs. The left knee was not great and I should have omitted or swapped out the plank jump-ins.

Notes for future reference:

  • My head was not in a neutral position for the side planks.
  • Arms not at 90 degrees to the floor for planks.

This is part of a series of WODs (workout of the day) that I have been receiving from a WhatsApp fitness group I joined to help me keep active during MCO. I’m keeping a record of the workouts here so I can keep a record of how I’m doing. You can find the rest of these WODs here.
