Good morning everyone. Yesterday was day 10 and I had relief in the Asylum. I have to admit that I didn't even get a chance to do it. I had a lot of business stuff that I had o take care of that far outweighed the need for a stretch. I was so looking forward to it too. Sorry there isn't a video of it but I couldn't find one. Tonight I have game day which is 60 minutes of pure movement and is inspired by many sports. I am a little nervous about this one too but check back tomorrow and I will let you know how it went. Sorry again folks and thank you fro taking the time to read this.
Ok, I did my vertical plyo on Tuesday and what can I say about this workout? Well, it is brutal. The lactic acid that flows into your legs while doing these exercises is unbelievable. The burn actually stared for me in the warm up. I always thought I had very strong legs and they have always been like solid rock. The one thing I didn't think about was the endurance of my legs. Well, I found out all about that in this workout. Every time I collapsed. I realized I had no endurance.
In vertical plyo there is a ton of jumping in different variations and positions and some of that jumping involves resistance bands. Oh my God. This work out utilizes the jump rope for.... well you know about that. It also uses the agility ladder which is insane because you are doing these jumps and having to land in the boxes while you have the resistance bands around your ankles. There were many times I was on my knees believe me. Over all however this is really an awesome workout and is guaranteed to get soaked with sweat. I can't imagine how many calories I burned. I am still stuck at the same weight I was when I started which may be a nutritional thing that I have to look at tweaking a bit. Thank God I took my measurements before I started because I am sure I'm losing inches.
Tomorrow I have the relief workout which will be just that. RELIEF. I so need it. Check back tomorrow to see how that went. Thanks for reading and I'll see ya soon.
