Congrats on Power Punch and 30 days!
It's ok, I quite like the program actually! Can definitely feel it having some kind of effect. Didn't do it today though, in fact I did next to nothing, only the 40 jumping jacks to skip a day of Fit December. Ah well...Power up is mostly mental strength, I'm definitely not looking forward doing that one again
Must confess that I thought 40 jumping jacks was way preferable to 60 goblet squats! But I told myself I'd be copping out if I did that. Tempting, though.Day 6 was rough!
Come on! Flutter kicks? You like goblet squats but scorn the flutter kicks?!I liked the goblet squats too though my form was not the best.
Now the flutter kicks from yesterday, on the other hand...

@Sif_Shepard I heartily agree. Personally, I think goblet squats work my pelvic floor muscles a little and regular ones don't. And I detest jumping jacks. I do them but don't enjoy them at all. Flutter kicks are okay.I don't actually mind doing the goblet squats - they feel nice, in a way. It's the mild pain that you want to feel when you're exercising.
The exercises that I like the least are those where I have the feeling I'm not doing them completely right, either because I do them very clumsily (I have that with some yoga workouts) or because I can't do them properly, and I'm not sure what to do about it (I am still struggling with plank and pushup variations, and trying to tackle this by starting with the wall pushups and gradually moving on to harder progressions).
Jumping jacks... not too keen on them, but a good quick fix when I don't have time to think about doing other things.
They're the exercises I work hardest on. I know if I hate them, it's generally because they really test me. For example, for me, with the fused vertebrae in my lower spine, superman stretches are difficult so I put myself through them probably with more intentionality than any other exercise. Ones that are easy for me, I 'like' (such as flutter kicks and planks) because they don't push me. Okay, so I'm lazy.The exercises that I like the least are those where I have the feeling I'm not doing them completely right, either because I do them very clumsily (I have that with some yoga workouts) or because I can't do them properly
