So I decided back in February that I was going to step out of my box. I was going to do something completely different from anything Iíd ever done. I was decided to join a 6 day a week cardio kickboxing / resistance str training group. I also convinced my fiancť to join me.
Iím in a rut right now anyway. This year Iíve lost a whopping 5 lbs. Partially due to self inflicted logic, and some just the scale doesnít seem to budge even when I rock it out for a week. Hence, Iím stuck in a rut.
My orientation is on Saturday, at which point Iím going to run a mile (timed), do pushups (that Ií m not even sure I can do), sit-ups (Ö if theyíre the full up kind Iím not sure I can do those either), and a few other things. This is a 10 week program. In which Iíll be on their nutrition plan thatís somewhat structured and will require more planning than I usually manage (from what Iíve read itís similar to body for life). I donít know a lot going in other than what Iíve seen while signing up, what my co-workers have told me, and what Iíve scouted on the intarwebz.
The program includes 3 days of cardio kickboxing, and 3 days of resistance strength training. This IMO is more or less a boot camp, but one that if I like it I can join their maintenance program and continue on 6 days a week of having my butt handed to me for 45 min a day.
All of this boils down to Iím excited, terrified, and wondering both WTF was I thinking, and this will be awesome.. I hope.
Has anyone else done a program similar? How was our experience & what types of things did you do?
