Day 15... DDP Yoga

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Okay... so I was supposed to start working out last week. I did one day of a video, but no more. I did spend at least an hour moving furniture two consecutive days, which burned a LOT of calories.

However, since I'm not quitting my job to be a mover, I figure I need something a little more consistent. Maybe you've heard of DDP Yoga, maybe you haven't. It's done by a former wrestler, Diamond Dallas Page, and it's yoga that's more manly. He has renamed the traditional poses and doesn't talk about getting in touch with you feelings or finding inner peace. He means for it to be a work-out.

And it is! I was sweating and trembling trying to hold the poses by the end. emoticon It isn't in the Spark databases, but yoga is. The system says Power Yoga for 30 minutes burns 169 calories. It sure feels like I burned more than that!

I enjoyed the video and the work-out. He has a schedule for beginners, intermediate, and advanced users. Beginner schedule recommends MWF routines. I think I am going to stick to that and maybe try something different on Tuesday and Thursday. Right now, it's way too cold to go for a walk outside. So, I need things to do indoors.

What are your favorite indoor exercises?

    I was thinking about doing some games on the Kinect for a way to get moving inside. It's -4 outside, which is just too cold to do anything out there.

    Sounds like a good plan. I should do more yoga. I think it helps to lean out the muscles. I'm fortunate that I have an elliptical and a recumbent stationary bike in my basement for cardio. I also have a punching bag (and PINK boxing gloves) they help me build up a good sweat.

    Way to stay motivated!
