    First, a pleasant news : my son was visiting us this afternoon and he said : "Hey, mum, you don't have flabby triceps anymore ! Wow !"

    Done today (28/10) :
    Wake-up routine :
    (10 head raises, 10 high crunches, 10 butt-ups, 10 knee to elbow, 10 sit-ups, 10 sitting twists, 10 knee in and twists, 10 scissors) x2, 20 heel taps, 30 leg raises + 30 count leg hold (1 L, 1 R), no rest.
    10 inclined push-ups
    1' squat hold punches
    10 inclined push-ups

    Power Cardio : Day 7, L1. I wanted something challenging, it seems I hit the goal with this program. I did the burpees and the push-ups with some 15'' rest periods, but I did them.
    2' rest, and :
    the Back and Biceps Express workout, with 5 kg dumbbells for the first two sets of each exercise, and 8 lbs dumbells for the last two.




    Kicks and Punches October Challenge: : 400 punches in total throughout the day

        The program is hard but doable at lvl 1 with some extra rest during the exercises.
