Day 8 of 21 Day Challenge: The Invasion of the Communists Continue

March 31, 2014 2 min read

And the title is NOT referring to anything political happening in the world. I’m actually really pumped to do the workout today, even though they are upping the time a bit, I feel so sluggish from not working out yesterday that I am ready to rock this workout, uterus be damned! Unfortunately after the workout my sluggishness increased to dizziness and nausea. Why couldn’t I have been born a boy?

Workout breakdown:

9 exercises

40 seconds work – 10 seconds rest

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

1)   Push-up, row, side twist + squat + press

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

2)   Right leg shoulder press + row

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

3)   Left leg shoulder press + row

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

4)   Pike elevated press ups

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

5)   C sit + 2x shoulder press + knees in

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

6)   4x fly, 4x squat + press + 4x hammer curls

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

7)   L+R alternate 1 tricep + 1x oblique

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

8)   L+R alternate elevated spider push-up + toe touch

*skip/high knees/ jump lunges*

9)   L+R alternate 2x ski abs + 2x plank row + turn

  • Free weights instead of kettle sandbells, and two chairs as my equalizer.
  • Jump lunges are such a great workout, but they kill my knees, so I just alternated between jump lunges and high knees.
FOOD: Coffee for breakfast, with a lot of almond milk and cane sugar. Once I was properly caffeinated I made a “pumpkin pie in a glass” smoothie, recipe in the Catching Fire Guide or the Definitive Nutrition Guide. My cousins cruelly left two-bite cinnamon rolls from their visit last night, which are my absolute weakness – so the pumpkin pie in a glass was a pretty nice alternative. I didn’t have pumpkin spice but I used cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, which I think amounts to the same thing. Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 12.38.28 PM For lunch I had more of the vegan curry with brown rice. Unfortunately I got pretty nauseous in the evening and couldn’t really stomach anything, so my dinner was ginger beer: high in sugar, but better than vomiting. Once my stomach settled a bit I knew I should probably eat something a little greasy/I’ve been craving Irish nachos all week. I sliced up a regular potato and a sweet potato, tossed them in olive oil and chili powder, popped them in the oven for a bit. Took them out when they were nearly ready and added a bit of cheese and some fresh jalapeños before popping them back in for another few minutes. THOUGHTS:
  • Ok uterus, sorry you went to all that trouble and then I didn’t get pregnant, but you don’t have to throw a fit.
  • I look forward to my workout more and more each day. I really didn’t think I’d be enjoying this challenge as much as I am.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
