Y'all know me... always starting something new.
Well, once again, I'm buddying up with my partner Nathalie whom we did the Hammer & Chisel program together.
We may be many states away from each other but she encourages me so much on getting through these work outs.
Accountability is a real thang!
We've even started a new hashtag for this round. Nathalie thought it up - that clever gal. She is a teacher so she has a way with words anyways... but we did #chiseledknitters for our last round - so this time we're doing #hardcorpschiseledknitters
How's that for a mouthful & a hashtag?
But it works because we are doing the 22 Minute Hard Corp program now.
I'm looking forward to something new.
New programs are always exciting to me. I'm the person who is always wanting to change things up & do new things. That's why some work out programs aren't for me because I'm not the person who likes doing the same routine over & over & over & over again.
Saying that, I do see this one only has a few workouts that DOES seem to get repeated often.
That makes me nervous. I'm hoping that I love them so much, I dont mind doing the same workout I did on Monday again on Wednesday....
... though the idea of that already turns me off a little.
But I'm going to PRESS ON & give it a try.
I'm also glad to see these videos aren't a forever long workout. I'm good for a video that is about 35-40 minutes. Anything longer & I'm moaning & groaning... though I don't mind walking or running for an hour. Funny how that works.
& again, on the flip side, I am nervous that the full video is going to be burpee & burpee & some more burpees. This is based off of a military work out & isn't that where burpees originated?
Kudos to me - I AM much better doing burpees than when I first starting working out. But it doesnt mean I love them or anything, or look forward to doing an insane amount of them every day.
But again - that whole pressing on thing...
Anyhooooo... this is supposed to be an 8 week program which will take me through till my vacation in October. Perfect timing.
So once again, a new program in front of me. We'll see how it all goes.
How many new things have ya'll seen me start here on Training Tuesday.
I think I kicked this off with my half marathon training - check.
& then the Hammer & Chisel program - check.
& then another round of 21 day Fix Extreme - check.
& here we are again.
After this, I'll have one more program I'm starting in November that will take me through 2016
... & then back to half marathon training.
Full circle baby! Full circle.
Have you tried this program?
Do you like Tony Horton?
Are you a fan of burpees or not?
burpees are awful but we do them a lot at the gym as part of the warmup...actually we do warrior burpees so we partner up, partner A goes into a low plank, then partner B jumps over partner A (at the butt, not ankle) and goes right into a burpee. we do that for 1 or 2 mins straight (depending on how mean the trainer is that day)....back and forth you go until you die. then we switch #deathtoburpees.ReplyDelete
yay for new programs!
Woo hoo! Get it, girlie!!!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the program! I've never tried a Tony Horton workout and I am definitely not friends with burpees! But I do them when I have to :)ReplyDelete
You go girl!ReplyDelete
I love a new challenge too! You so got this girl!ReplyDelete
I think it is great that you are always trying new things out because the worst part of working out is getting bored! I know you got this!ReplyDelete
You are amazing - your workouts are always so different!! I think it's great you are constantly confusing your body with new things! xo, BianaReplyDelete
I am always impressed with how dedicated you are to such programs! Clever hashtags too!ReplyDelete
What's a burpee? (giggling)ReplyDelete
I love your hashtags, your motivation, and your encouraging inspiration! You got this! :) :) XO - AlexandraReplyDelete
Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things
I've never tried a workout program, though I've seen them work for others! I don't think I'd be very good at getting myself to do it every day. Then again, I dislike hitting the gym so many an in-home program IS the way to go...ReplyDelete
I think we're going to get a treadmill and stationary bike soon (and cancel our $$$ gym memberships) so maybe the TV in the new exercise room can be used for programs, too... Hmmm...
This is awesome! Go you!ReplyDelete
I like burpees more than the average joe, I do like Tony, but HATED his Yoga video on P90X, super annoying! Otherwise I didn't find him offensive or anything...ReplyDelete
good luck girl! i haven't done a burpee in like 5 years and i am okay with that. i am with you on not liking to do the same thing over and over, i get bored immediately if i know what's coming, even if it is hard. just not my jam. it's different at the gym or outside running, i can repeat myself there, but at home on a video? i hate it.ReplyDelete
Way to go girl! I HATE burpees!!! ;-)ReplyDelete
Too bad Hard Corps isn't on demand. Can't wait to hear how you like it. I'm looking forward to November already!! :)ReplyDelete
Wow that was motivating... I feel like I need to go running now (and I don't run!) Ha. As far as burpees... I hate them... I'm more of a planks girl! :)ReplyDelete
