When I first started this blog last year, it was to help keep me accountable in the health & fitness department. Unfortunately, the momentum didn't last long, nor did the blogging!
However, about mid-year last year, I stumbled across an AWESOME fitness blog called BodyRock.TV. I was in awe of the host. Her body was strong, lean, and beautiful. And the best part of the blog...all of the videos were free, and I didn't have to step foot in a gym! Score!!
After stalking the blog for several days, I decided to give it a try. The workouts were intense and kicked my butt! But, I felt great afterwards. I stuck with BodyRock for several months working out 2-3 days per week. Then, as usual, life got in the way. Work, toddler, ectopic pregnancy.
Well, it's time again to get my rear in gear!! I got the all clear to start working out again, albeit, no heavy lifting just yet. And, perfect timing too!! BodyRock.TV is having a 30 Day Challenge! There is a new host, but the principles are the same, and the new host has a rockin' bod for inspiration...
The 30 Day Challenge starts off with a Fitness Test. 7 exercises in intervals of 50 seconds with 10 second rests in between. Check out the video below (and no, that is not my tush. I wish it was!).
Here are my scores:
SQUAT JUMPS - 25
PUSH UPS - 12
BURPEES - 7
HIGH KNEES - 76
SWITCH LUNGES - regular 7, modified 9
TUCK JUMPS - 8 (these were killer for me and my legs felt like jello)
STRAIGHT ABS - modified 20
This is a good starting point for me. I'm curious to see where I'll end up at the end of January. :)
Please check out the blog - BodyRock.TV if you are looking for an at-home, kick-ass workout. I could use some virtual work-out partners. :) It's tough, but can be modified for beginners, so don't be intimidated. I've had to modify quite a few exercises over the course of my workouts.
Oh, and if you "Like" BodyRock.TV on Facebook, you can keep up with the work-outs. Plus, I noticed they added the host's daily food logs. Great examples of healthy eating (and no, I have no affiliation with the site, lol!).
I'll continue to post my scores on the work-outs as well as my progress.
What type of fitness program do you follow or have you started following as of this year? I would love to hear what others are doing. Happy exercising!!
