      DD: 60 Seconds Squat Hold completed with ec
      HiiT Advanced: Day 28 lv 3 (1min rest between sets)
      Finisher: 5 Chin-ups


      So even though I'm still not at 100 % I tackled Day 28. I enjoyed it all the way especially because of the hidden burpees - 180 to be precise I set my timer so I had 5 seconds to do the burpee which means every set lasted for 4:30 min. I took 1 minute rest between sets. Is there a better way to scare (sweat) off the bugs than a HIIT workout

        HiiT Advanced: Day 29 lv 3
        Finisher: 2 sets of dead-hang chin-ups (6 & 4)

        Today was basic burpees day and I just loved it. I managed to do more than 360 basic burpees with a jump

        I took 1 minute of rest between sets up until lv 1. Then I took 1 1/2 minute of rest up until lv 2 and for the rest of the sets I took the full 2 minutes.

        I'm still struggling with a cold but these HiiT workouts are a great way to clear the system

        One more day and then I have finished the program for the second time

          I hope your flu finally got the hint and scarpered.

            Thanks Redline. HiiT A Day 30 was done Thursday. It should have been Wednesday but I was invited to another round of Fire Fighters HiiT with the Fire Brigade. It was an invitation I couldn't turn down and after 30 minutes of exercise, I wasn't ready for Day 30

                  DD: 60 Seconds Hollow Hold completed with ec
                  HiiT Advanced: Day 30 lv 3
                  Finisher:
                  5 pull-ups
                  20 chest expansions done with a power stretch band
                  15 in a Row!: Day 4

                  Today was my last day of HIIT A. It was tough today as I could feel the last three days of exercise. I set my timer for 10 seconds of exercise and then 5 seconds for the jump squat. So every set lasted 4:30 minutes. 30 seconds of rest up until level 1 and then 1 minute of rest for the remainder of the workout.

                  I managed to do 20 push-ups per set and 6 plank-walk outs which I was satisfied with

                  So that makes it the second time I have finished HiiT A. I have enjoyed it a lot and for me it is one of the best Darebee programs. It is a fast-paced challenging program. One of the things I like with the program is the possibility to tweak it for example by cutting down the transition time between exercises and rest time between sets and going for a higher rep count. My BF and muscle mass is the same but I have become more streamlined and toned doing the program.

                  Redline - thanks for the invitation. For me it was a great motivator doing the program with you. It definitely pushed me going for shorter rest time and doing a higher number of reps. It also gave me an obligation to do the program every day. It is a great way of being accountable.

                      Congratulations, Sundance!

                      And I'm happy if the fact we did the program together helped you. It was a big incentive for me as well - I usually manage to work out consistently and avoid skipping days, but with a challenging program like this one, where the further you go, the less rest you get and the longer the sessions become... well, it was good to know there was another guy up north who got to sweat just like me, and kept on going even when the going got tough. It also motivated me to keep my rest times low and my set count high.

                      So, thank you, and let me congratulate you again, buddy! We did great!

                        WoD: PT Pyramid (6-step pyramid)
                        Finisher:
                        Barbell curls: 40 reps (10 kg) with the aim to pump the biceps
                        20 chest expansions done with a power stretch band
                        5 minutes heavy bag boxing


                        I decided to challenge myself today with a tweaked version of PT Pyramid. Push-ups were done as Push-up with renegade rows (7 kg dumbbells) and sit-ups were done with a 2.5 weighted plate. I rested 2 minutes before descending the pyramid.

                          No training today as I was playing Europe Engulfed (a block game) with a friend of mine.

                          It's been almost a year since we last played strategy games so it was great finally finding time to play.

                          We played from 10am Saturday morning to 1am Sunday morning and were like at the end We managed to get almost 1/3 through the game as we stopped at July/August 1941. We are both looking forward to continue the game in the near future.

                                WoD: Carpe Diem lv 3 no rest between sets
                                Finisher:
                                Chin-ups: 5 reps each with a negative chin-up for 20 seconds (30 sec rest between each rep)
                                Barbell curls: 2 * 20 reps (10 kg) with the aim to pump the biceps
                                20 rep dumbbell curls (2*12)
                                20 chest expansions done with a power stretch band

                                I decided to make up for the weekends lack of training by doing the Carpe Diem with no rest. That was tough I managed to do 12/13 push-ups per set and 5 basic burpees per 20 seconds. Funny how the toughest part of the workout is the plank hold done after punches, push-ups and basic burpees.
