End of week 2 - Core de Force, days 13 & 14
Sunday, December 11, 2016      1 comments

I finished week 2! I'm super proud of myself! I feel stronger and the moves are smoothing out a little for me, so I don't feel quite so uncoordinated. But I'm still kind of a mess with some of the longer combos, so there's that entertainment. I ... Read more

Friday, December 09, 2016      2 comments

Oh my goodness! Today's 47 minute workout was MMA Power, filled with more explosive combos, more kicks, and more defensive type moves. It was hard! By the end of the 12 rounds (who am I kidding? way before then!) I was dripping with sweat, out o... Read more
Knee support recommendation request - Core de Force, day 11
Thursday, December 08, 2016      1 comments

Dynamic Strength (47 minutes) is one of my least favorite workouts in the program so far. It's the one with all the pushups. I hope my pushups will be better by the end of the 30 days - they're definitely my weakest point. On the other han... Read more

DOMS: Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness I have them. Or maybe they have me? Day 6 was Dynamic Strength, 47 minutes of strength and power. It's not the first time I've done this one, but maybe I just worked harder this time? Whatever the re... Read more

Today was the 37 minute MMA Shred. Last night, my SO and I had dinner at some friends' house. I ate fine (a little more than was in the day's plan, but I gave myself permission to do it and enjoy it), but I drank more red wine than I had planned... Read more

Today's workout was Dynamic Strength, and WHEW! 47 minutes, 12 rounds, 3 moves each round, very brief break between. This wasn't a cardio workout (although it did have me breathless in many spots). It was strength, with focused moves. It's ... Read more
