I started my 3rd week this past Friday, which meant it was time to move on from L1 to L2 for both upper and lower body workouts. The jump from 20 minutes to 30 minutes really wasn't that bad. My runs are usually 30 minutes, and the JM Killer Abs DVD I've been using is also 30 minutes, so it's not like 30 minutes is some magical number I have yet to cross.
I'm forcing myself to use heavier weights, at least for the first set. Nothing crazy; just going for the 10 pounders instead of my trusty 5lb dumb bells. Unlike the L1 tapes, I'm feeling a little....stiff?...the following morning. It's a good feeling; makes you feel like you are really getting something from the workout.
As far as results go, I'm feeling generally more toned. J swears he can see a difference in my butt, but I think J tends to tell me what he thinks I want to hear. I could kind of kick myself for not taking better pictures in the beginning for comparison purposes
. Anyway, I'm definitely happy with my overall progress. I should probably note that I'm running 10+ miles per week, and doing JM Killer Abs 2x per week in addition to the Butt Bible. I'm also watching what I eat. I wouldn't say I'm dieting, but I've been making healthier choices.
