I missed yet another day of my 30 day shred. Vacationing and exercising do not go together. BUT I did walk at least 2 miles and swam for 15 minutes, so I wasn't just sitting around!
Today I started Level 2....
amid the groans, I yelled at Jillian with an "are you kidding me?"
Can I just say that I HATE plank moves? My daughter told me to practice just holding a plank, wish I would have been doing that right along. My wrists are not going to be able to hold up under these:
If you think this looks easy, get down on the floor...right now and try it. See how long you can hold this position. It's a killer.
But Jillian doesn't ask that you just 'hold' this position....oh no, that'd be too easy! (yea, right)...while in this position you do a 'jumping jack', 'leg twist' and some other crazy moves. She really does try to kill you!
I'm wondering if I can use this position instead:
also called a plank. My wrists would thank me :)
The routine went quickly today, probably because it was new and I was attempting to get my form correct.
There are some balance moves that I thought I would have trouble with, but level one must have helped my balance muscles, cuz I didn't fall over!
BUT sweat! WOW....literally rolling down my face.
