So I’ve been doing the “Ripped in 30” workout for three days now. I cut out my other weight lifting classes and have kept my cardio classes (step class, Turbo Kick, and boxing). I feel as though 20 minutes of weights a day for 6 days a week is going to impact me more than 1 hour of weights 3-4 times a week.
I already feel like my biceps are working harder. They’re not sore, but when i flex in the bathroom mirror (yes, I do this), they look more defined. It may be because I am doing it everyday, so they have no time to sag. You know how your muscles look and feel bigger and stronger right after you work out? Well, I’m always just finishing a workout. So, Ka-pow! Biceps.
I did figure out how to do the move that was hurting my back correctly. It takes a lot more focus that I was giving it, and I have to lessen my weights. If I don’t try very hard, than I find myself slumping and my back hurting. Takes-a-lotta concentration, y’all. (Please say that last sentence how you imagine Paula Deen would say it).
Don’t get me wrong, I love Paula Deen. But this is too funny.
Anyway. I haven’t started the “meal plan” that goes along with Jillian Michaels’ “Ripped in 30” DVD, but Sean and I plan on grocery shopping soon, and I’m fairly certain (like 59% certain) that I can convince Sean to eat healthily with me. We’ll see.
So far, so good.
