Hi Everyone!

Check-In:
#10 SDX Total Body w/12's
#10 SDX Cardio Kickboxing w/weighted gloves

Hmm, I totally forgot about those evil side planks w/weights. I didn't sweat as much or struggle as much with the Total Body workout as I did previously. Maybe my fitness level has improved since the last time I did these workouts. We'll see how it goes, as this is only my first day. Things can change and get ugly, very quickly.

Teacher Let us know which weight class you take at the gym and your thoughts. I am with you on the dislike of weightlifting. Give me an hour of cardio any day!

Hello ladies!

Diana - great job! It's nice when you see improvements like that
Regarding the Les Mills program there are 2 options. My honey wanted the heavier gloves and extra workouts so we pre-ordered that one. Should get it in Dec.

Good job with the elliptical, teacher! Have you been having a good fall?

Hiit 30 tonight. Had planned to do Upper 20, too, but tummy was very sick due to eating 2 brownies and lots of froyo last night. UGH. Why do I do this to myself...

Diana- Tomorrow I'm heading to the y for Fierce Class here's the description-
"FIERCE cardio and strength classes push you for results using the best of new interval training ideas, functional resistance and core exercises. This class is easy to follow, yet intense!"
It's a new class that was added in Sept. I'll have to see how I handle the class.

Laura- Fall has started great. Sept was super busy and Oct. I'm trying to focus on increasing my workouts and focus more on my eating. Trying to see some movement on the scale! How's school going?

today- back to the y 60 cycling

Hi Everyone!

Check-In:
TF Fire 55 EZ
#10 SDX Bonus Buns w/12's

I woke up a little sore this morning from using weights yesterday and my new rotation. Things got interesting as the day went on. I noticed my DOMS have gotten worse throughout the day.

Laura I will probably purchase the basic set. I'm not sure when I will order. I don't want it to arrive while I am out of town. I hope they come out with more information about when it will be delivered.

Teacher Good luck with your class tomorrow. Why do they have to call the class "Fierce"? They try to scare you off before you even get there.

Diana- I made it through the class. The name is very appropriate because it was FIERCE My goal is always to make it through the whole class and I did it It's a tabata class so it's like the HITT workouts where you do intense work and then rest. It was a good mixture of strength moves and cardio. The only equipment needed was a weighted bar. It kind of had a boot camp feel to it. I tripped on the bar in the beginning of class and twisted my ankle a little. I'm so clumsy. Now I'm very sore and I'm sure tomorrow I'll need to rest. But I felt very strong after. I'm planning on going back next Wed. Maybe if I keep going I'll see some improvement since I had to do the modified moves.

Laura-

today- YMCA Fierce class & walk with dogs

Teacher - AWESOME sounding class! Way to go for making it through! Hope that your ankle feels better.

Hi Everyone!

Check-In:
#10 SDX Lower Body w/12's
KCM's 30 MTF Circuit Burn (Cardio/Boxing Premix w/weighted gloves)

This morning I woke up with the upper body feeling better, but the hamstring/glute DOMS were worse. Now to the bad part. I was concerned because the Lower Body workout was scheduled for today. I had more of a sweat going on today than I did on Monday. That lower body workout has always been killer. We will see if I need assistance getting out of bed tomorrow. For some reason, my glutes/hamstrings are not sore right now. (they are probably in shock! ) Anyways, I was trying to compare the intensity of #10 SDX to Insanity. I think #10SDX is a notch easier than Insanity, but not by a lot. It's not like one is beginner and one is advanced. They are very similar in intensity levels.

Teacher Awesome job on the weight class! I knew you could do it!

Laura Look at you with that longer cardio! I am looking forward to the longer cardio workouts in Body Combat.

HAHAHA, Diana....You're doing a great job but may need a walker when you first get up

Thanks for the praise! I LOVE FIRE 60!! It kicks my butt and I was totally SOAKED when I finished but it's one of my favorites!

Have a great night, everyone!!

Hi Everyone!

Check-In:
Michelle Dozois Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn
#10 SDX Bonus Abs

I need to run an errand. I will be back later.

ETA:
Laura I didn't need the walker this morning. I guess that's a good sign. Although, I have known to get worse DOMS 2 days later. I really think my body is in shock when that happens. We'll see how tomorrow is. Hopefully I'll be good.

Teacher Do you get worse DOMS in your upper body or lower? Mine is always worse in the lower body.

Teacher Hmm, interesting. Do you carry your weight above or below your waist? I carry my weight below my waist and that's where I get sore.
