Okay, so I just finished my second workout of this 30 Day Challenge. Fortunately I've done all of these exercises before so I don't have to spend any time with how-to segments. I'm doing the medium intensity this time round and really prefer it. It's more reps mostly, but it takes longer so you don't feel like you cheated somehow and you have higher calorie burns. Today I actually burned more than the target which was nice.
For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm doing the Wii Sports Active workouts in my home. But don't worry, the whole post doesn't rely on you having the same. These exercises can be done just about anywhere, from your own home to the gym.
Favourite exercise today: Side lunges with toe touches. Really anything that works my core to me is absolutely essential.
Exercise I hated today (but did anyway because I'm
stupid competitive good like that): fast high kick ups. ugh. I should have worn my knee brace today.
Okay, someone asked, what is The 100. It is a pilates staple. When I was younger and my midsection still had some firmness to it and hadn't gone through quite so much trauma, I could tighten it up with just the 100 morning and night for a couple weeks. I don't know if it's going to be as effective as quickly this time, but I figure it can't hurt. So the basic position is this:
Uh-huh. Not bad, right? So anyway, I'm adding that after every work out and hopefully if I get my act together and if a certain toddler lets me lay on the floor without accosting me, I'll do it other times throughout the day as well.
Tomorrow is a day of rest.
What exercises do you love/hate/rely on?
