EA Sports Active 2 - Workout 36 of 36 of 9 week Hard program.
:D :D I DID IT :D :D. I went into that level with as many health packs and ammo that I could carry and went in with guns ablazin' :) Those demons didn't know what hit them. I saw the exit in the distance and gave it everything I had right to the end. I feel Awesome. I believe I won that round. Mission Accomplished. Happy Friday Everyone. Can you tell I am hyped up...LOL.

9 week Hard workout 35 of 36 (Round 3 of 4)

I think that round belongs to EASA2...so its JAC 2 points - EASA2 1 point. One more round. Straight arm plank - Push-ups - Mountain Climbers...that was a tough combination to do in a row. I survived however and am looking forward to another woopin' tomorrow. It feels good when it burns :)

Also I have kept going with the 2.5 lb ankle weights to see how it goes (I do not wear ankle weights during the sprinting or running events). Also I have been wearing a 1.5 lb glove and 2 lbs wrist weight on each hand/arm throughout the workout. Then for upper body events I add whatever dumbells I feel like using that day...5 lbs to 8 lbs. Great Stuff indeed.

Kinda got behind on my updates.

Phase 2 was challenging, but made it through nicely. Survived 2 weeks of phase 3 so far and have done 2 workouts in the 3rd and final week of phase 3. Will get into workout 35 of 36 on Thursday... or as I am calling it...Round 3 of 4...as in a boxing or wrestling match. Me VS EASA2. I think I won the two rounds. I even increased the difficulty a bit by adding half pound to the ankle weights bringing them to 2.5 lbs instead of 2 lbs. Looking forward to Thursday's workout. BRING IT ON!!!

Tomorrow is my last workout in Phase 2. This mornings workout 23 of 36 was an upper body workout and it was a whopper at that. My arms felt like jello afterwards. There were 4 sets of 55 rep mountain climbers in this session. Kind of a slap in the face in the morning to wake up the body...WOW. Looking forward to 24 of 36. KEEP BRINGING IT!!! Gotta dig deep.

Phase 2 update:
Week one was challenging for sure. It is definitely conditioning me for the next phase. I am feeling phase 2 a lot more than phase 1. The reps of increased for lower and upper body events in Week 2 of phase 2. Still able to go from event to event fairly smoothly with the occasional pause for water.

Tonight was workout 19 of 36 (or the 3rd workout of week 2 of phase 2)
EA Sports Active 2 was on fire tonight... 4 sets of Mountain Climbers (not in a row...yet), there were a few sets of Straight arm planks (had the legs elevated again on the palate ball...need to be careful doing that...LOL), and lots of running in place thrown in there. Awesome workout. Looking forward to tomorrows workout.

Good night team.

Workouts 10, 11, and 12 completed. Phase 1 of the hard presented a challenge. Not too hard and not too easy.
Began Phase 2 (13 and 14 of 36) on Tuesday. On workout 13 my legs were getting tired at the end. Workout 14 of 36 lasted 40 minutes and after the cool downs it took me a couple of minutes to get up off the floor. Wow...what a workout. So I see that the difficulty level has been raised. Now to meet the challenge. Must continue forward. Have workout 15 of 36 tonight.

Workout 9 of 36 (First workout of the last week of phase 1)
Was taking everything the program was throwing at me one by one.
There were plenty of running events and again my BPM were below 170 throughout.
I remember when I was in the 180's and 190's and sometimes the 200's for BPM.
Looks like it actually is working as far as increasing my aerobic ability and being able to workout at a higher intensity.
Amazing stuff.
Looking forward to next workout.

Last night did - Workout 7 of 36 of 9 week Hard:
Really felt energized during and after this workout... WOW.
There was 2 sets of mountain climbers (not a problem), push-ups, stride jumps, skipping, running events, and several upper body events. I am up to using 14 lbs on each hand for the upper body events...(so far). Looking forward to workout 8 tonight. Bring it on!!!!

Did workouts #5 and #6 of the 9wk program set to Hard.
I have been able to keep up only pausing to put on/take off ankle and wrist weights for the various events. This morning featured events on the soccer field and tonight featured events on the basketball court. I have noticed that my BPM are lower overall as compared to my weeks when I began using EASA2.... Wow. Will monitor that a bit more to see how it goes. Great couple of workouts today.

So here I am after 60 weeks in a row (51 weeks of EA Sports Active 2 and 9 weeks of NFL TC). I have finally reached the point... I hope... Mentally and Physically to take on the beast that is..... EA Sports Active 2....HARD....9 weeker.

I began on Oct 8th, 2012 and so far I have done the first two workouts (1 of 36 and 2 of 36) and so far it has been kind to me...LOL. I suppose though it will ramp up pretty darn quickly here in the next weeks. BRING IT ON!!!

I will post more of my beatings... er.... experience with 9wk hard as I go.
