wednesday's workout....

I really wanted to do something other than run today. My hamstrings have been feeling really odd & with IronGirl Sunday, I did not want to risk anything! So I opted for P90X's Cardio X.

Cardio X is a mixture of yoga, kenpo (aka kickboxing), plyometrics, and core synergistics (core focused moves). It's a really great workout, especially since it keeps my attention & I don't get bored :)

one of the plyo moves - "the heisman"


I really wanted to do another workout once I finished Cardio X...so I browsed the OnDemand selection & found this:


ExerciseTV has a butt load of workouts on there...but I thought I'd sample Chris Freytag's lower body circuit, part of the 10lb slimdown system. It was 20 minutes, and I totally felt the burn halfway through. I didn't find it challenging as far as complicated moves. Her cueing was spot on & really, the level of difficulty is more due to the repetitions. It's 3 circuits & you repeat each circuit. It's fast paced & really left me wanting to see how her other workouts are. There's even a free download online of a schedule to follow, to possibly drop 10LBS...

You can get the plan here

I feel like things like this just further re-enforce the fact that you don't have to have a gym membership to be healthy. If you have 20 minutes to spare during the day, you can totally jump start a lifestyle that incoporates working out. If it's important to you, you'll make the time to workout.

I'll get off the soapbox now.

This one also looks like a good workout! It's definitely on my list of new workouts to try.

Now it's time for me to stop procrastinating & go do laundry. Bleh.

Hey Nicole! I saw your blog featured on Skinny Runner! I do not have a gym membership as of right now and am obsessed with Jillian and Bob's dvds(from Biggest Loser), they are amazing and I work super hard, so I totally agree that you don't have to go to the gym to get a burn on! Love your blog! Come over and check out mine if you have a chance, I love getting new blog friends!

Hi - I hopped over from SkinnyRunner blog. Great post; I wonder if I can access these types of workouts through our cable. Have to ask the hubs I guess... I put him in charge of all things technology. :-)
