My usual workout routine becoming tiresome and never ending, it was time to change it up. I finally opened up my new JM DVD, Ripped in 30.
This DVD brought me right back to where the whole getting back in shape thing started for me with 30 Day Shred.
Ripped in 30 consists of four workouts, each one intended to be done for one week before moving on to the next, more intense workout. I can happily report that Week 1 is in the bag. Each workout this week consisted of three circuits - 3 minutes of strength (3 moves, repeated twice), 2 minutes of cardio (2 moves, repeated twice), and 1 minute of abs (2 30 second exercises). Week 1 left me a sweaty mess even though it was only 24 minutes. My obliques and hamstrings were feeling it the most and I see some definition in my chest from the push ups.
Did I see much progress this week? No. Was it because Ripped in 30 is ineffective? No. My diet is crap! I've been snacking like a bear getting ready for hibernation. Hopefully I can leave this bad habit behind for Week 2. Also, if this darn weather would start feeling more spring-like, I plan to do a bit of evening jogging. The kids and I want to run the Maywood 5K again in May so I need to get ready.
No progress pics yet as I'm Still searching for my get up and go that got up and went before Christmas and I've had three 14 hour work days so far that just totally screwed up my schedule. I will actually probably re-do week 1 before moving on to week 2 now that I think about it.
So, week 2 review next week. Oh, and there is a Ripped in 30 diet you can follow for optimal results. I took a look at it but know it's not enough food for me, but a link is included with the DVD.
Anybody having trouble getting their workouts in? Any new DVDs or exercise programs I should know about?
