You tend to get the best results from the exercises you hate - because they tend to be the hardest.
So don't rationalize removing an exercise from your program just because it's tough...those are often the ones you need to keep!
Today's workout for me included a couple I'm not fond of: front squats and bulgarian split squats (1 & 1/2 reps).
The full workout:
1) Jumps - 3 sets
2) Squats - 2 sets
3) Front squats - 2 sets
4A) Good Morning - 1 set
4B) Bulgarian Split Squat 1 & 1/2 reps - 1 set
5A) Back extension - 3 sets
5B) Stability Ball Plank - 3 sets
Now time for a 90 minute dog walk...
Also, here's a tip on my Facebook page that got a good reponse:
Consider setting PROCESS goals instead of just outcome goals. A process goal is "I will do Turbulence Training 3 days per week" or "I will use a food log for 8 weeks". And then if you meet your process goals, your outcome goals (i.e. you want to lose 10 pounds) will take care of themselves - and you'll have better lifelong habits.
Stay strong and never quit,
