Wow, a 1,000 calories burning workout video!

Sunday, July 28, 2013

I was looking for new fitness videos on youtube and came across this new fitness channel and their first video was
=I5COzZlxaI4, which was about how to burn 1 thousand calories! Mind you, the video lasts 1 hour and a half!

Would this be even healthy to do and would it be best to cut it into sections, like doing 30 mins now and 1 hour later? I might as well do several workouts in a day to burn the same amount of calories.

Even though I have not been active on my sparkpage or blogging, I've still been on SP, tracking my fitness and nutrition when I can. I've been on a massive health kick for about a few months now. I'm so near my goal weight! I'm trying to clean up my diet and get over my bad eating habits, such as snacking at night, eating too much in one meal and regretting it when my stomach complains, etc. Slowly but surely, I am getting better. I make many mistakes like eating more food 30 mins after having food, causing my stomach to be in pain from eating too much without realizing how full I actually was but am learning to try and not repeat the same mistakes.

I love my strength training! I feel stronger and fitter but was neglecting the cardio side of things, which I am now trying to readdress by adding more interval / circuit workouts into my regime and be more consistent with the jogging.

I've been eating, on the whole, very healthy and clean but I seem to eat far too much! I can eat all the best food (lean protein, fruit and veg, wholegrains, no sugar / junkfood at all, etc) but seem to struggle keeping within a decent calorie limit.

I have more free time now the school term has ended and I'm not teaching. If I could burn 1,000 calories a day like in the above video, I 'should' lose about 2 lbs a week! I think I'm about only 10lbs or less than my goal weight, which I haven't been at in years, but am very close!

I'm trying! I'm learning from past mistakes, working out what and how often eating suits me and how I work, so even though I have been losing weight for close on 5 years with SP now, I'm definitely still learning!

This is me in June, 2013 - I look so much healthier than I did at uni in 2007/2008, when I was obese and would feel self-conscious and bad about myself. Sure I do have issues to do with, and some hangups regarding food and my body, but when I stop and think of how nice it is to not be so out of breath just moving out in the day and how much I feel stronger, it really does hit me. I love being healthier! I enjoy getting fit! It's certainly a struggle sometimes and being consistent in healthy eating and getting the fitness in the day can be hard, but it's so worth it. :)

    That video looks fairly intense after the cardio warm up! A few adaptations here and there are needed though, if you have bad knees especially. Looks like they have a series of videos to try~ emoticon

    I watched the video and when I saw the description, Oh. My. God. 32-min HIIT! I think this is not a workout for a beginner but perhaps can modify according to our levels :D Such as making longer breaks, decrease the intensity. But if you think you're up to the challenge, you can just follow the video or even increase the intensity! Good luck!

    I think I'm also healthier now compare during my university days, too :D

    Any advice on finding workout routines? I just joined a gym and feel like I need some structure. In particular, which actual weight training exercises to do. Usually I just wander around not sure what to do until I just end up going back to the treadmill!
