Yesterday I got home from church and got in the best workout I have had since I started the current 5 week program I am doing. It is a full body toning workout, that also focuses on building your cardiovascular endurance.
Last week I was starting to get a little down, because I wasn’t seeing results like I thought I should be. I kept reminding myself that I was only two weeks into the process, so I should not be as hard on myself.
However, as I was doing this workout I could tell I had grown over the last 2.5 weeks. My endurance has improved and I am slowly getting stronger. After going through the exercises once, I was not completely winded. I went through the routine a second time, and by the end of it I was sweaty all over, which to me has always meant that I had a great workout. I love it while I am working out when sweat drop to the floor. Not really sure why that is, but people tell me I am weird, so that might be why. HA!
Alright, here is the workout I did yesterday. A couple of the exercises were new to me, so I had to watch the video closely a few times the first time I went through the exercises.
Beginner: 10 reps
Intermediate: 15 reps
Advanced: 20 reps

3. Extended Situp
4. Mount Climber/High Knees (30 seconds each, 10 second rest in between)
