Yesterday I did Imax 3, the abs from KP&C, 100 swings, 36 pushups, and that was it! Imax 3 really wore me out, more so than usual - I think I need to start doing more Cathe cardio. I took a break from her, as I was getting a bit burned out because I did the same DVDs over and over and over, but I think it cost me a bit of cardio capacity. Oh well. I guess doing something a bit easier so as to avoid burn out is better than doing nothing.
This morning I did Newport for the first time. Great googly moogly!!! That was tough! I paused it a few times and flat out stopped during the punch matrix/plank round and during the pushups/dive bomber/cobra round - I DEFINITELY need to work on my core strength! What kills me about kettlebells is this - so many of the moves don't seem to target any specific muslce group, yet after a kettelbell workout - I have very specific DOMS! I can't think of a single 'triceps' exercise from Newport, but my triceps are killing me right now! And I have DOMS in my glutes and hips, too (two areas I'd love to 'tighten up'!) After Newport I was going to do the hi/lo portion from Amy's Hi/Lo Dome Challenge, but I was too tired to do so!
Andilynn, Deanie, and Jane - I really admire you guys for doing workouts on your own - I need a DVD to instruct/motivate me. I've tried to workout on my own but I just end up wandering around the workout room, wasting time. The only thing I do on my own are swings and pushups. You guys are inspiring. I should really try to integrate squat thrusts into my daily dose of swings and pushups!
Deanie - Manmakers sound great!!! I know I will break down and buy Empire State/Manmaker sometime soon!!
Vilma - I hope your headache goes away and that you can get your cardio in. I've thought about purchasing some iTread downloads as I don't run, but would like to. However, as my treadmill is not a power incline treadmill, I'd need to do some research to find the iTreads (or Cardio Coaches) that focus on speed changes, and not so much incline changes.
Gayle - enjoy your rest day. What do you do with the sandbag? Is it like a Woodie bag? I'm curious...
