Hey everyone, me again. Since i took a day off for some life events. I decided last night that I would skip day 14 which was relief. I didn't feel like i should be doing relief the day after an off day. I really felt like I needed to WORK. Well work is what I did in speed and agility. Last night i really had a while new level of "bring it" since I was coming off of a day with no workout. I found that I really pushed past that initial burn into the area of total failure. I worked until I would drop and could not work more. I took a few breaths and got back up and worked some more. What an awesome workout it was.
This workout once again uses the jump rope and agility ladder. I usually don't use the jump rope and just do the motions like I am. The reason I do that is because in the ones where you are doing a squatting jump rope and moves like that, I feel like i can go deeper into the move without the rope. That helps me to get a better burn. The lactic acid really flows that way.
The reason I am pushing it so hard right now is because I have hit a plateau in my weight loss and I've been here fo a couple weeks. That is something that would have really had me discouraged a while ago. Now i realize that it isn't the end of the world. It just means it's time to do something different. So what I am trying is adding some calories to my diet and pushing hard. Believe it or not, depending on what you're doing for workouts you sometimes need to eat more not less. We will see how it goes. I will try with the additional calories for a weeks and if it doesn't help, I will cut a few. I'll let you know how it turns out. Tonight I have the dreaded vertical plyo. I will let you know how that went when I write tomorrow. Until then, y'all have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
