Monday Madness

This was an awesome workout I did with my Pilates class yesterday. It was more like bootcamp, ha ha! They seemed to like it. This is what happened.

There were 3 sections to the workout. A cardio section, a strength section, and a core section. We did all of the exercises in Group 1 for 30 seconds each. After we completed the whole group we took a small breather and did each exercise again for 1 minute each. We took another breather and did the exercises in Group 2 for 30 seconds each, breather, and again for 1 minute each. We completed the workout with a cooldown and stretching. OUUUCCCH in a good way!
