1. Today’s workout is HIIT: Plyo from Les Mills Combat. I’m actually looking forward to this, though hoping that the headache passes before this evening.

    This is the full 30 minute workout, although I wouldn’t expect it to remain online for long: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTc3MzMwNDE2.html

    This program was definitely worth the $60. I wish that I had the money for the rest of the videos TBH.

Weight loss is a process. It is not a steady decrease in weight, there are both ups and downs. The only way to see results is to stuck with it.

  7. 2014 Get: Round 2, Week 2, Saturday

    Today’s workout deviated from the scheduled workout, but all of you already knew that. Today was a little.. different.

    I returned to the bike trail today. Someone was there with a dirt bike (they had apparently missed the large sign that says “no motor vehicles of any kind”). There was frequently no line of sight between us (we couldn’t see each other at all) but I would hear the motor of the bike get closer so I would have to step off of the trail (if possible) in case he came charging down my particular path. Extra vigilance = I didn’t get ran over by a dirt bike. Yay!

    That made things a little more “interesting” and it also slowed down my average pace, understandably.

    I hit the hills much sooner and more frequently to make up for the frequent stops. The majority of the hills are noticeably higher than I am tall. One or two would easily reach the top of my house’s roof. Those that aren’t so tall tend to be lined up in a kind of wave pattern. Just to give an idea of the workout that it provides. Pretty solid. You really need to watch your footing.

    It seriously worked my legs today. Asthma was so-so; not too bad.

    Once home I rested longer than intended because the TV was already in use. The wait was roughly 20 minutes. I eventually did the more intense LIVE version of Combat 60 since I had rested longer than anticipated.

    The catch is that Combat 60 LIVE hits the legs, too, which makes today some sorcerous combination of leg day + interval cardio training.

    Fun times!

  8. I’m seriously considering returning to the bike trail today. Yesterday was great, I feel great today, the weather’s great. It’s kind of a no brainer. Today’s scheduled workout is Core Synergistics from P90X and Combat 60 from Les Mills Combat.

    I suspect that I could easily do about 20 minutes or so at the bike trail, and then come back home and do Combat 60. Plus my asthma is not bothering me nearly like it was yesterday, so I wonder if I could get better performance on the trails today. It’s unlikely, but I am kind of curious.

    On the other hand it’s supposed to be much warmer today so I wonder how that will effect my performance.

  9. 2014 Get: Round 2: Week 2: Day 2

    Today’s exercise for 2014 Get has been completed.

    Kenpo X really is too easy. However, you can noticeably increase the intensity by focusing on proper form for kicks, punches, and other body movements.

    Note that Kenpo X is listed as an hour long workout but the actual workout is only 45 minutes long - coincidentally that’s the minimum recommended time for fat burning. The first 15 minutes is a Yoga session that’s used for warm up. Which I skip and do some running in place, jumping jacks, lateral bouncing, arm circles, and so on and then fast forward to the workout.

    Anyway, enough of these rambles.

    Half of today’s scheduled workout has been completed. Severe storms are moving into the area and I do not expect to do the 2nd scheduled workout for today.

    Done today: Combat 30 LIVE, a much more intense version of their 30 minute workout.

    Just a quick note to say that Round 2, Day 1 was completed. I’m not sure if I’m going to post about this every day, to be honest.

    Also, Tumblr Pro… thanks for the hat XD

  14. 2014 Get: Week 13, Day 2, Part 1

    Workout #1 for today has been completed. This is not the workout that’s scheduled for today, rather it’s the makeup for yesterday’s missed workout.

    An intense 30 minutes of martial arts-inspired interval training.
