Monday Motivation

Posted May 07 2012 6:45am
I started doing Bodyrock.tv back in October of 2010.  I was skeptical when I started but soon was following it faithfully.  I kept up with all the new workouts and it wasn't long before I was seeing some results.  It was my first experience with high intensity interval training.  I loved the short intense workout that for the most part were body weight or were done with very minimal equipment.

Fast forward to October of 2011 and the workouts were now involving more equipment and instead of having 3-5 new workouts a week they were very sporadic, she was putting in weird capoiera moves and generally I was going back and doing old workouts or making up my own. 

Then the unthinkable happened, Zuzanna who to me was Bodyrock.tv left Bodyrock.tv.  New hosts were brought in and eventually it seemed to be just Lisa Marie.  For me it was very disruptive to have different hosts and I know I was turned off by Lisa Marie.  I pretty much quit Bodyrock.tv except to go back and do old workouts occasionally. 

I went from doing 4-5 HIIT workouts a week to lucky to get in one or two. My weekly mileage during this time was also going up from averaging in the 20s to averaging in the 30s and now in the 40s.

What is the point of all this?  

I have decided to give Bodyrock.tv and Lisa Marie another chance.  I am not sure I really gave her much of a chance to begin with I was so bummed about Zuzanna leaving.  I am doing the May 30 day challenge.

Here is today's workout done!

 I am doing it two days behind them since sometimes they don't post the workouts until much later in the day and when I want to do it, I want to do it when I  am ready! I also like to have watched the video and have it all ready in my notebook to go so I don't have to waste time getting it done when I just want to get the workout done!

This is tomorrow's workout ready to go!
 Yup, I have a whole drawer in my dresser that is devoted to notebooks for working out.  Two of them are full of Bodyrock workouts that I have done.  It is fun to look see how much progress I have made since I started and go back and do old workouts over.
I also like lots of different colored pens, I keep them here so my kids don't lose them

So far I have done the  Fit Test  on Day One, and  Day Three's Burn and Sculpt Workouts .  I haven't tried the  Flow yoga  ones yet, not sure why since I think yoga would be good for me and my tight muscles, but maybe I am avoiding it since I am less familiar and therefore less comfortable with it.

Here are their descriptions of the workouts
Intense Total Body ‘BodyRock Burn’ Workouts – 12 Minute Workouts specifically designed to maximize fat loss.Specific Isolated Weighted ‘BodyRock Sculpt’ Program to run alongside the Burn & Flow Components – To Dramatically Improve Overall Toning & Strength.

This is a little hard to read I know but this is the schedule they have for May.

I have been doing some of Zuzanna's ZWOW workouts and they are pretty good too, but my biggest complaints about them are that

  1. They aren't in a HIIT format
  2. They are do as many rounds as possible in ten minutes (or some other time) and I want to do HIIT.
 I also have a 5 mile race coming up this weekend.  It is the biggest race in Montana.  The Montana Women's Run, they have almost 8,000 people signed up last I heard.  I think most do the 2 mile race.

I had someone at work ask me last week if I was going to walk the race or jog it.  To which I replied "Neither, I race it"  :)  It's one of my favorite races.  I am not expecting a PR but I do hope for a good time!

What is motivating you this week?
