Yes, I am back! The other day I made a decision once I got to work that it was time to start working out again. I went into the Super Gym on wwww.teambeachbody.com and loaded in the auto-schedule for it. I picked the Accelerated Results program, and I also decided to do 20 minutes per day.
Why 20 instead of 10? Because I need that extra 10 to get my fitness level back up. Also, I want to get used to working out that much. In the near future I plan on doing P90X 3 (which is 30 minutes a day) and Focus T25 (25 minutes per day). Doing 20 minutes per day now will get me used to devoting some time to exercise. That way, it won’t seem like such an unrealistic jump to go from 20 to 25 or 30.
And on top of that, I have fallen way down the fitness ladder. During Upper Body there were way too many times when I had to stop, even though I was using only the medium resistance bands!
Core Cardio was a different story. I was able to last for much more of it. I was also able to push myself. There is one move called Towel Hop Squats where you put a towel on the floor and hop from one side to the next, but that isn’t all: you start out with your arms reached over your head and then, when you jump over, you bend down so you can reach the floor. After 45 seconds this had my legs BURNING, but I kept going anyway.
In the past, I would have given up or done the modification where you reach down only to just below your knees. Not yesterday though.
Tonight will be the original Cardio routine and Core Cardio. Can’t wait to see how winded this one gets me!
If you are someone who wants to get into better shape but finds it very difficult to find a fitness routine for you (because of time, money, lack of motivation, etc.), then I can help! Despite being a family man (wife and 4 kids) and working two jobs, I’ve managed to fit martial arts AND fitness training into my schedule! To find out how to join forces with me, check out this video!
