It’s been a long, crazy week, but I can certainly look back and say that I did well with my workouts. In fact, I haven’t been this consistent in recent memory. This week was a complete restart of the 21 Day Fix, so my workouts revolved around that particular plan. Next week I’m going to attempt to add in a few other things for variety, while still staying with the daily Fix workouts.
Here’s what the week looked like:
21 Day Fix Total Body Cardio: This workout in particular always kicks my butt. I think it has something to do with the surrenders at the beginning. They are no joke and the whole workout always makes my heart pump like crazy.
21 Day Fix Upper Fix: The hardest part of this workout for me is the pushups immediately followed by a plank. Those are two exercises I need to work on quite a bit!
21 Day Fix Lower Fix: So many lunges! This is a really effective lower body workout, and I hope I’m a little stronger in this area next week.
21 Day Fix Cardio Fix: This one is a pure cardio workout. Just when I think the day 1 workout is as hard as my heart is going to pump this week, the regular cardio hits, and it’s even more insane.
21 Day Fix Pilates: I worked from home on this day, and for some reason when I’m out of my normal routine, I find it even harder to get myself to do a workout. However, I did and this Pilates workout is great and comes at just the right time to give the rest of my muscles a rest.
21 Day Fix Dirty 30: I think this is actually my favorite of the fix workouts. It’s challenging, but seems a little more manageable than the other workouts.
The workout hasn’t happened yet, but on the agenda is the “active rest day” which includes the 21DF yoga DVD. D has actually expressed interest in doing this workout with me, so that will be fun.
I feel like every single one of my muscles got a good workout in this week. I have a love/hate relationship with this plan because the workouts are so hard, and I generally tend to gravitate toward more “fun” workouts like Zumba. However, I can’t argue with the results I get when I do these workouts. I’m going to stick with it next week and see if any of the days feel at all easier than they did last week.
