Hello - today I did the real day 11 of the first phase of Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis Omnicentric workout and it was no walk in the park. I say the real day 11 because I've watched the DVD and then did a dry run of it last night and it still kicked my butt.
These are hard workouts and when I'm finished I can always tell the muscles Tracy is getting at. Although I really feel it, the arm segments don't give me much trouble. I'm not crazy about the standing ab work this go around - but the floor ab stuff is hype just like in the first 10 days. Once again, the leg stuff is a beast (I'm actually running out of mean nice things to say about this workout!).
There are the now usual different angles to the leg movements, which I expected, but now Tracy adds in plank work - one with an arm behind your back - no joke! That move challenges your balance, core, arm and leg strength and I can still feel it in my shoulders. Again my glutes and hamstrings are talking to me - asking for mercy is more like it - but there will be none! HaHaHa
The bad thing about today's workout is my heart rate monitor took an unscheduled vacation day, so I don't have that data to use for comparison purposes, but my BodyBugg told me I burned 131 calories - by far more than the workouts from the first 10 days. I'll take it.
Later I'll do something fun like a TurboFire workout. If any Turbo folks read this yes, I consider TurboFire fun after Tracy's workouts, and TurboFire is no joke either! Just saying.
Have a great rest of the weekend and have a wonderful week too! DC
