30-Day Challenge: Day #1

30-Day Challenge (Day1)

Here is a new challenge that I’ve taken upon myself.

I’ve been following Lisa from BodyRock for a bit now, and her workouts are insane. So as I was browsing her YouTube videos tonight for a little short workout, I stumbled upon her 30-Day Real Time Challenge. Oh, I was excited.

I was not disappointed. By the end of the 45min workout I was exhausted. I did some modifications to her workout since I couldn’t do everything that she did, but they were still challenging enough. Not only was I limited by my fitness level, but I also don’t own all the pretty equipment that she has. So when she did pull-ups with her equalizer bars, I settled with push-ups instead.

I’ve taken a break from my weights since I began training for my race, so picking them back again was really difficult. My arms have become flabby. Every time I heard the beep from her timer signalling the end of a round, I was so glad. Man, those dive bombers were hard! But hopefully by the end of the 30 days, I will be much stronger. I just have to keep it up and not slack.

I’ve taken Lisa’s workout directly from her website with some of my modifications.
