Day 2 & 3 were ridiculous. I was sweating up a storm and barely made it through the workouts. Lots of squats, jumping, more squats, more jumping, pushups, and running. I could’ve handled the running if my my calves, hamstrings, and quads weren’t already crazy sore from Day 1. Yes I know I’m pathetic. Just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore Day 4 came around.
Thank you Day 4!This was a cardio recovery day was so needed and very beneficial. It was mostly deep slow stretching with some squats thrown in there. Day 4 incorporated some Yoga and some balance moves. I really liked it!
So far I’m really enjoying this program. I’ll probably eat what I’m about to say but so far I don’t feel like I’ve been working my abdominals. That is one area that I want to work, work, work. There are future days where the dvds include abs in the title so I’m sure I’ll be working them but so far the first 4 days have no ab targeted exercises, that I’ve noticed. And I am engaging those muscles by keeping my core tight!
Lastly I’ve bumped up the amount of calories I’m supposed to eat and the frequency of eating, about every 2 hours, has really picked up. This is all new to me so the first few days I felt stuffed. I think all the food has kept me at a steady weight which is great because now when I lose weight I’ll know it’s fat and not water.
Must keep Digging Deeper!
