Wii Active 30 day challenge Day 2&3
Sunday, June 14, 2009
I'm really enjoying this program. I finally figured out how to put the nunchuck in the leg strap correctly. This makes things work much better. Yesterday I worked lower body and played tennis, I also did curls, lunges and squats. Today I played tennis as well but with the added workout of the balance board. I can say I am not a tennis player. I'm not real coordinated so to follow the moves with both my arms and legs and the hit ball is a challenge. It is fun though and hopefully with time I will get it right. Day three also had running, kick backs and knee ups. Today I got introduced to cardio dancing as well. This is another exercise that requires you to move your arms and legs. This incorporates the balance board as well. I was more coordinated on this as there was no ball. Today's workout took 36 minutes and burned 147 calories. Today was supposed to be a rest day according to the program but I pressed anyways. I prefer to take rest days in the week as something always comes up with teenager in the house.
I'm liking this program much better than the wii fit. It is more like circuit training and I don't feel I have the lag time to maneuver the menu like with wii fit. I also feel the workout is better I'm dripping in sweat by time I'm done and have started taking a towel with me when I work out. The challenge is currently running me through 18 different exercises per workout. I'm not sure if this will increase as I get further into the challenge or not. All I know is that I'm excited about what tomorrow will bring for my challenge workout. Of course I continue to work on other cardio exercises as well.
I also did Leslie Sansones 5 fatburning miles as well today. It has been a while since I did a LS DVD. I love her stuff but I hit a plateau and needed to change things up to kick my body into action. I added some weights to this workout today and burned over 600 calories in 68 minutes. I think it is time to start reincorporating her stuff into my work out.
