Muscle fatigue - Core de Force, day 8

Monday, December 05, 2016

Wow. My abs, hips and thighs are exhausted. This morning brought 2 workouts: MMA Shred and Core Kinetics (53 minutes total). MMA Shred is cardio, with plenty of kicking and punching. Core Kinetics was floor work - planks and crunches, that kind of thing.

None of it was worse than what I saw in week 1. So far. But man, my muscles are fatigued now! I've always thought athletes were crazy for taking ice baths, but I can almost understand it today. I might have to have an epsom salt bath tonight, or even at lunch. Seriously!

I lost a little over 6 lbs last week, so I'm going to have to adjust my eating habits. Losing weight is not one of my goals in this. I'd be okay with about 10 lbs, but that's about it. And who hates eating a little more food? Not this chick, for sure!

BUT! I'm so proud of myself for completing week 1 and working so hard! I'm excited about week 2, even with the muscle fatigue!

Note: Core de Force is a BeachBody program. If you have questions, I know an independent BB coach who can answer questions, give you guidance, and help you order what you need. (She is NOT into the hard sell, just wants to help others succeed.) Holler and I'll hook you up with her.

    You lost 6 pounds in one week, WOW! That is a lot to lose in one week. Hope you can adjust your food intake, so you aren't losing quite that much if you don't need too.

    Do you think that may be why your muscles are getting fatigued?

    Good for you lady! I feel that I am in pretty good shape and I still have to use the modifies for some of the moves and I am on week 4! I am starting round 2 on Thursday, but plan to be more consistent with my food plan.

    I also want to post more about my workouts as well on SM, (I did a little, as you saw, but want to be more consistent with that as well!)

    You should ask your coach about Recovery from BB. It is a post workout drink from Beachbody's performance line. I started drinking it when I started Core De Force and noticed a huge difference! :)
