Pain Anyone?

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Ok so yesterday I did my first official workouts. All of them were Cardio dancing.
-10 mins of Zumba in the morning.
-20 mins of the biggest loser 30 day jumpstart in the early afternoon.
-10 mins of the biggest loser before dinner.

I was so pumped and full of energy, I could barely get to sleep last night. The little devil was whispering to me to go raid the fridge and make a sandwich s I normally do at night, but after all my successful workouts that day, I wasn't even tempted to listen to the little bugger.

So I woke up this morning & let me tell you, ALL MY MUSCLES WERE SORE!
I'm not complaining, that just means I did something right, I think, right? lol
Today I completed another 10 mins. of Zumba and 10 mins. of a video I found right here on sparkpeople. http://tinyurl.com/avf2alz
Just as I was about to say OUCH, OK ENOUGH ALREADY, she said.. and thats it, you're done! I even kept up with her intensity. (don't laugh advanced people) lol

Definitely felt the burn! But I do have one question my fellow sparkers. When you strength train, I know you aren't supposed to work the same muscle group 2 days in a row, but how does it work for cardio? Is it cool do do cardio everyday? I don't have ANY eqiupment, so what should I do for alternate workouts besides cardio?

    Daily cardio is fine as long as its not always the same cardio. Based on what you posted, you'll be fine. Remember, part of the soreness, is because you are so big right now (I saw your weights on another post) that its a really big challenge for your body. Just keep going! Lood guck!

    Cardio daily is okay as long as you're not overdoing it. Great job!

    I am not an expert, but I think cardio can be done daily if you want. I don't think Chronic Cardio is really necessary though.

    I am glad you are allowing some healing time. Our muscles build during the repair and re-cooperating phase, and not the work out itself. And sounds like you are making good food choices. We need to feed our bodies good stuff while it repairs and rebuilds.
