We kicked off our epic revamp on Tuesday as scheduled. With the new 5 day routine, for the first month I will be doing 3 cardio, 2 strength. I decided not to use my wrist weights this week, to just get my body back into workout mode.
I started with the 45 minute dance workout, which got my heart rate above 190 a few times, but I was able to complete it without a significant impact on my fitness level. My arms were as tired as if I had used my wrist weights though, but that is too be expected.
On Wednesday, I did Amy’s 30 Minute full body dumbbell workout for some strength training with a bit of cardio. In the process, I destroyed my thighs. Last year, I could do this workout with 4.5 kg dumbbells and feel the burn, but not the pain. I struggled with my 2kg dumbbells on Wednesday, and I still can’t walk down the stairs because my legs refuse to cooperate.
Overall, it was a good start, but I could not bear the thought of doing Shaun’s Dance Party again last night, particularly because I have to drive today (ugh). Instead, we’re going shopping later, so I’ll do a bit more walking to release some of the muscle tension, and then do Shaun’s 25 minute booty workout instead (which is cardio with squats).
