We finally got some rain in Maryland! Thank goodness. It had been almost 2 weeks in my area without rain. It also looks like the weather is going to be just a shade cooler for the next few days thankfully.

I started doing Turbofire this week. I felt like I wasn't getting enough cardio in with Chalean Extreme so I'm making up a mix of the two. With Chalean she has you mix 3 days of lifting with 2 days of her cardio. I plan on doing 3 days of lifting with 3 days of Turbofire in-between. On the lifting days I would still like to get in a little cardio but nothing too intense...just a bit of time on the bike or outdoor time...whatever I get into that day.

At some point I may decide to stack them on top of each other but the only way I can see that is if its one of her shorter cardio classes. Her programs are designed to be done intensely so I can't see how, if I really give it my all, I would have enough push for both in one day. For example if I lifted heavy I don't think I would have enough muscle juice to get through intense cardio and plyometrics. On the other hand its the same way with cardio. If I give that my all I would think I would be just wore out to the extent I couldn't give lifting my all.

So anyhow this morning I did HIIT 15 and it was a lot of fun. I'm not really fast enough to keep up with her 100% on beat but I think I did pretty darned good. Once you let go of the notion that you can't do something its amazing to see what you can do. I used to think I wasn't much on jumping but I got some good air this morning on those jump squats. I think mixing Turbofire in will be the jolt I need to keep my workout fresh.

    great job! I started TurboFire last week, and I still need to work on keeping up with her. I'm sure it will get better each time I do them.

    Glad you got some rain! My poor container garden is relying on me to water it and that is just not as good as rainwater!

    Great job on the Turbo Fire!

    I am in my final month of ChaLEAN Extreme and thinking about geting TurboFire and mixing it up too. I love the strength training but need more cardio for sure.
