Welcome to the second installment of my attempt to be held accountable: the workout week in review!
While I had some ambitions last week to add in a few additional workouts to the schedule, everything went a little haywire when my work schedule went off the rails. As a result, the week was slightly less successful than week 1, but I still got in 4 quality 21 Day Fix workouts. They were: Total Body Cardio, Upper Fix, Lower Fix and Cardio Fix.
Rather than beating myself up for missing the other 3 days, I’m going to focus on the fact that this is still way more than I would have done previously. And I have no intention of letting this de-rail me from the rest of the 21 days. I will just extend the schedule however long it takes to get it done.
I’m at the point in the program where I’m still sore almost everyday after I’ve done a workout (which I like because that means I know I’ve done something), but it’s not the kind of incapacitating soreness that can happen when you start strength training after a long time off.
Also, I have to admit that when I’m not doing a regimented program like this, I do tend to completely throw strength training out the window in favor of something “fun” and cardio based like dancing.
Looking forward, my plan for this week is to make up the 3 workouts I missed from last week and start right back over onto what would be the beginning of the 3rd and final week of the Fix. And this time I really mean it that I’m going to get in an extra cardio based workout!
Which do you prefer: strength training or cardio?
