I'm almost halfway through this Challenge. Wow! I'm enjoying it so far, with only a few gripes about the program.
Monday: Amy's Intervals
I really enjoy this workout that Amy has designed. It's different from the other HIIT workouts - in a good way! It's a challenge but with little dread factor. I only got in this 30 minutes today. Life happened and it was uncontrollable.
Tuesday: Denise's Cardio and Sculpt Challenge + walk
So this workout seemed very familiar....because, I'm learning, all of Denise's workouts are very, very similar. Sigh. This one had some good cardio in the beginning (she used a medicine ball; I did not) followed by some good weighted exercises. After her push-ups, I did my own cardio and weights since she turned to core then. At lunch, I walked at the rec, wanting to burn more calories!
Wednesday: Dozois' Calorie Burning Cardio Blast + HIIT - Breathless and Energized + Scott's HIIT - Sports Inspired Intervals + walk
Desperate for serious cardio, I strung together three HIIT workouts this morning - all of which are among my favorite workouts on Glo. Michelle got me started with the lighter of her two HIITs - Calorie Burning. So much fun! Then the more difficult HIIT - Breathless, followed by Scott's HIIT. His is easier only because the breaks are longer. I felt well worked out after those three!! Ha! At lunch, I walked at the rec center. So much eating out means I need all the calorie burning I can get.
Thursday: Scott's Multi-Level Cardio Intervals + Denise's Total Body, Total Sculpt + weights
At first, I was worried about Scott's workout, which utilized a medicine ball. I didn't use a ball and then the ball wasn't used again after the warm-up. Yay! This proved to be a good interval workout. Cool! Denise's weighted workout was like the rest - but at least it's quick and effective. At lunch, I did weights at the rec. Fun.
Friday: BodyFit 360 Vol 2 - Dance Conditioning
Due to crazy morning events out of my control, I had only 30 minutes to work out. So I did 20 minutes of the dance in Michelle's Dance Conditioning…and then the full stretch. I wanted that stretch! And it was very nice!
Saturday: Scott's Cardio Drill Awesomeness + Get Your Circuit On + Ilyse's Fire Up the Six Pack
I didn't know whether to dread this morning, so that was nice. Scott's Cardio Drills (cardio alternating with weights) was a good level 3 - though not really a challenge for me. What is challenging about Scott is the number of weight reps he does. Whew! His Circuit was a level 2 and a bit easier - so I tried to make it harder. So many reps, though….geesh! All in all, 70 minutes of weights and cardio. After a nice stretch, I did Ilyse's ab workout. Her core workouts are difficult! I barely got through the first half of this one!
Sunday: Cathe's Cardio Core Circuit + Amy's Metabolic Meltdown
As usual, I dread Cathe's Circuit workout. Ugh. But I wanted cardio so I made myself do it. And I survived! Yay! After that 40 minutes, I tuned into Amy's workout for 25 minutes of additional cardio. I was tired after all this! I stretched and did my sit-ups. Whew!
This week has not been good. I had a few good days but that was it. Sigh.
