THINK U R FIT?
Real quick post today; look for my advice post coming tomorrow. Also, if you are looking for specific workout/hair/health tips email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will post your questions offer some suggestions and encourage other women to do the same (via comments).
Now to my story.......
I am no novice to exercise and I consider myself to be in relatively good shape. I can run 5 miles ( @ 9 min/mile) and I lift weights regularly. But that did not at all prepare me for what I encountered today. I went to a SPINNING class. It was so intense my instructor pushed us to the Max. 45 minutes of spinning and I was soaked and whupped. Today I truly realized the importance of changing up your workouts. You have to be honest with yourself, if your workouts are no longer challenging find something new. My plan is to substitute spinning for running at least twice a week. This should really tone my legs.
If you have not tried spinning you definitely should. It is a really intense experience and according to my instructor you burn 600-800 calories in 45 minutes. You have to definitely push yourself though (or find a great instructor who will push you). Oh and a warning for ladies who got a little extra meat on the bottom (like me) you may want to double up your towel and put it on the seat...because those seats are tooo narrow.
Between spinning classes and weight lifting I'll reach my goal soon. I also think I will add some yoga into the mix.,
So Ladies, the take home message is be sure to Challenge yourself and Change it up every now and then.
Have you ever tried spinning?
How do you keep your workout challenging??
New workouts I should now about??? Please share
Oh and I repeat.....
My next step is to continue toning until I get my bikini body! I am going to change things up by signing up of the American Heart Association free 12-week online nutrition program. I am looking for two more women to sign up with me. You will receive the BetterU kit for more info click HERE. If you are looking to lose some weight or just get healthier this is great opportunity for you. Questions??? Please email me at email@example.com
