FIRST, A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I have started filming myself during my workouts and created a Youtube channel that is strictly for fitness (and wing chun, of course). You can see me at:
Now, on to the blog itself…
Wow, it has been a while since I posted. That’s because I just had so much else going on. Some things were revealed to me about my level of commitment to running Beachbody as my own business, and I was really slipping. BAD. So rather than write this blog, I devoted my attention elsewhere to make myself more accountable and more accessible to others. It seems to have done the trick, but I found myself missing this blog. I had no idea what to do to maintain it since I knew it would take away a significant portion of the time that I am trying to build. Then it hit me: I could post on my rest days and review the week’s workouts. As you can see, this post will cover a lot more than one week; that’s because the idea came to me too late. However, from this point on each Friday post will cover the week before it.
The catch for this blog is that I can’t really remember what the first few days of this time span were like! So instead, I will share some ways that I have modified the routine.
First of all, it seems like Yoga X always falls on a bad day. I either don’t have the time/patience to do it, or I keep getting interrupted and lose the flow anyway. So I have decided to take the advice of a team mate and swap my Kenpo and Yoga days. This will work out a lot better because this puts Yoga X on Thursday. Friday is my day off, so it’s okay if I am up doing that late.
Second, I started to feel a little bored with this schedule. Then I realized why: you are supposed to do Upper Body Plus twice a week (day 1 and day 5). So instead I swapped out that second rep and replaced it with Legs and Back.
This was a pretty good week. I was able to push myself harder on some of the Yoga stretches, and during Back and Biceps I found out the weights I WAS using have finally become too light for me.
Next step: get this nutrition part under control so that some of these muscles actually start showing!
