  1. 7 rds plus sit ups on 8th round
    (Finished 8th round after timer)
    Inclined sit ups w/ 20# KB
    OHL 20# KB

    Followed w/ 3 rounds
    20 banded bicycle crunches
    20 one leg hip raises (10 ea leg w/ 20#)
    10 "chicken wings" 16#

  2. 5 rounds plus 20 BFSU
    finished set after the timer
    Those lunges (20#) were challenging and I liked it.

  3. Finally got some exercises from a PT for my separated abs! Not supposed to do sit ups, so I swapped them out for one legged hip raises. 10# on lunges. 5 complete rounds and 17 hip raises of sixth before timer finished

      Sorry to stalk! What exercises did the pt say for separated abs? I’ve seen some improvement, but there is still a definite separation.

      1. Hiit Mamas says:

        If your abs are still separated, you should not do any exercise that pushes your abs outward, such as sit-ups, crunches or leg lifts. Sub any of those for ab exercises that pull your abs towards your spine, such as planks or lay on a towel across your back and cross it over your abs, then pull it to push your abs toward each other as you “crunch” and tip your pelvis up.

  4. 8 rounds plus 5 sit ups
    Balance on the 20lb lunges was tough for me!

  5. I lost count, which seems ridiculous since it was either 3 or 4. How can I lose count with that few? But i honestly can't remember. So distracted.

    So it was 3 or 4 rounds + 5 sit ups in 12 min.

    1st round 15# and way harder than i thought. Not controlled.

    Next rounds at 10#.

    Arms crossed, all.

    1. I'm trying to recreate in my mind and I'm pretty sure it was 4.
