So I previewed Amy Dixon's Breathless Body DVD over the weekend. It's a Tabata style DVD. Meaning if you try to do this, you will die.
Ok, not die, but possible do some bodily harm to yourself. Like pass out from how freaking tough it is!
I was gonna do it, I swear to God I was going to, and then my eyes fell to an old school Firm DVD that I ain't done in forever and a lifetime. Low Impact Aerobics with Wayne Gretzky's wife, Janet. She used to be a gymnast, I think.
I hit the inclined treadmill for 20 minutes, then did the DVD. When it was time for the cardio sections, I substituted ass to grass squats, heavy deadlifts, heavy squats with upright rows, and dips with frontal sweeps.
524 calories burned. Lots of hard work & sweat.
Thanks for the kind words those of you who listened to Heather's interview/podcast with me on her site! I appreciate it.
I've been getting compliments on my arms lately. Especially when I posted that tank top pic. Lifting heavy will get you nice arms. Remember to strength train as early as you can in your weight loss. I was working with weights from Day 1. Light weights, of course, from 2 pounds and up.
I've never regretted that. I do have a teeny amount of bat wings/loose skin. I know, I know - you are always your own worst critic.
Anywho - do weights if you don't already!
Food prep then bed. Nite, ppl!
