Today I feel it. The good pain in my muscles after doing the Total Body Cardio Fix Workout yesterday. I feel it in my legs. In this workout there is a combination of cardio moves with weights including a lot of squatting. My muscles are in recovery mode. The pain will go away but there is just enough muscle pain that in the olden days I might have chosen to stop and not press on.
Since I’ve been through the Fix once already, I know that the pain will subside and my body will begin to transform. So as one friend asked, the Fix isn’t just about what you put in your mouth, but it’s about fitness too. I might have a tendency to talk more about the food side of things because I love food. I’m actually having a snack right now as I write this post. Celery and natural peanut butter. Delicious!
Every day there is a 30 min workout. I try hard to do it in the morning because let’s face it, I probably won’t get it done if I leave it until the evening (I might have talked about this in another post).
Here is my workout routine:
- Monday: Total Body Cardio Fix (weights needed)
- Tuesday: Upper Fix (weights needed)
- Wednesday: Lower Fix (weights needed)
- Thursday: Pilates (Lower impact for rest day – no weights)
- Friday: Cardio Fix (no weights)
- Saturday: Dirty 30 (Weights needed. I think burpees are in here!)
- Sunday: Yoga (Lower impact for rest day – no weights)
- Extra Workout: 10 Min Fix for Abs (You can add this onto your workouts – I haven’t done this yet)
At the end of the fix you can boost your results by doing double workouts from Day 15 – 19. The first round I did them at the same time to get it all in, but the correct way to do it as the book says is at different times of the day. But I don’t want to work out twice a day! I’ll be doing this again, so maybe next time I’ll try it the right way.
There are some exercises that I enjoy more then others. There are some that I dread – like pushups. I’m still doing them from my knees. There is a lot of ab work and planks. The key with the workouts is to keep moving, follow the awesome lady who does the modified version (she actually looks like a real person unlike in some workout DVD’s where the person doing the modification looks more fit then the instructor). By the end of the first round I was doing pretty good. But it’s been a while so I’m back to doing most of the modified again, but that’s all right!
That’s a little bit about the workouts in the 21 Day Fix. I have done a few different workout DVD’s and this one is great for beginners or moderate. I’m sure those who have been working out for a long time would find it stimulating as a change in their routine. It all works!
I will conquer the workouts and keep moving! That is my positive thought for the day.
Do you workout? Do you go to a gym or exercise at home? Walk? Run?
