Buckets

"Don't stop when it hurts, stop when you're done."

Today, I suffered through the full extent of that phrase.

As you all probably didn't even care to know, cheerleading for the school with which I am currently employed begins in 1 month and 8 days. Through much tedious planning (read: Pinterest) I have come up with workouts to get my girls in shape... the only foreseeable problem being that I myself am out of shape and need to be able to not only do the workout with the girls, but be able to instruct them while doing such.

Enter today's first trial of the "Oh, those will be so simple, I'll do all 3" workout session.

Here's what these "Oh, those will be so simple, I'll do all 3" workouts look like:



THIS is not a ONE SONG workout. More like 2 1/2.

So super simple, right??

WRONG.

First of all, whenever it said to do anything like butt kicks, or Russian twists, or bicycles.. I took that to mean double the amount, because that number for each leg, right??

WRONG.

Icona Pop's "I Love It" is not NEARLY long enough for all they're asking you to do, at least not if you're doing it properly... meaning the way I just described. That, to me, would yield the best results, right???

WRONG.

Secondly, Kanye West's "Power" is the LONGEST SONG EVER. There's just no need to have that much extra music, unless you're going SUPER slow. I even doubled up on everything (you know, like you should), and there was still about 2 minutes left over. Ridiculous.

Finally, wall sits suck. Period.

So now I pose the question to you all- are these workouts too ridiculous for my cheerleaders? And if so, what suggestions would you have for an alternative workout?

Maybe give them a try for yourself and let me know from personal experience? Yeah??!?
(Disclaimer- make sure you search for the CLEAN version of the songs. Real life.)

Until we sweat again!

Oh- and the title refers to the amount of sweat that came out of my disgusting self today. Buckets. Seriously. It was gross.
