Interesting impact of the bonus workout video

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I was exhausted with my workout routine from the 28 day bootcamp challenge - I'm in week 2 and my entire body felt tight and taut. Yesterday my legs hurt so much in the gym that I could not spend more than 10 minutes on any one machine. Then when I came back to my hotel room, I came across the bollywood workout and I don't know what possessed me and I decided to try it then... even though I was really tired. I started doing the workout and my entire body loosened up and though i was very tired at the end of it (and couldn't keep up with parts of it ... choreography was way too complex for me... when I was done my entire body was looser and not hurting.

I'm reluctant to say that I should alternate between an aerobics video and the gym - simply because the gym is so much more convenient. But maybe mixing it up by having a workout video once a week is not a bad thing. Or maybe the answer is to add a longer stretching session at the end of my workout.

P.S as my second bonus video I did the 15 minute core workout with the ball. It was tough but fun :)

    Cross-training (doing something different than your normal workout) is a great idea. You'll work out different parts of you body, use muscles in different ways, and keep your body guessing (which can fend off or end plateaus).

    Stretching is my fave part of exercising, so more of that cannot be a bad thing either!
