I made it through the first week and it was amazing! I have worked out for many years but this work out is the “Extreme” I am hooked.
There was no weights today, all cardio and cardio it was. A lot of use with that cute little purple band I mentioned a couple of days ago, it is a real thigh buster. Some football moves, if you have ever watched football players practice their little running in one spot steps that was it, and it is much harder than it seems. A bit of jumping and bending to the floor, but the great thing about these workouts is that there is always someone doing a modified move so if I can’t keep up to Chalene than I can watch one of the other participants, again, constant reminders of the posture and how to correct it, I love that. That work out was for 30 minutes, there was a second workout for 20 minutes that was all stretches and it was just as great, hard, but I could almost hear my muscles saying “ahhhhh”.
What did I notice for my first week? My strength is already starting to increased, and my flexibility is increasing as well. I like those results. Tomorrow is a rest day and I was really planning on taking my bike out on to the trail but apparently it is going to rain tomorrow, so….I will have to think of something else.
