Day 5 through 8 came and gone. This program is really flying by. Allow me to give you my brief synopsis of each workout after doing each for a second time.
Day 5 – Rest
This is exactly what I did. It came at the right time as my body and mind were just tired.
Day 6 – Speed and Agility
Jumping rope is still a challenge. However, I know this is a skill that takes time to develop. I performed so much better during this workout than I did with Day 1. One factor is that I am more familiar with the exercises, but my skill level already increased. My wind is much better and so is my coordination. I fully expect to start working on my speed the next time I do Speed and Agility.
Day 7 – Strength
This is a really good workout. This may be my favorite of the first 4. The challenge is the pace at which he works and the different power movements that I have never performed before. At the end of this workout, my entire upper body was fatigued. I can feel my self getting stronger.
Day 8 – Back to Core
Again, this was much easier. However, I am still weak as can be. Especially when I do his reverse plank exercises. This may be due to the fact that these are at the end of the workout when I am tired or just the fact that I am weak at this move. I have not done the exercises when I am fresh. After the first 8 days, my entire core is stronger. The slight back pain while doing my dentistry has subsided. This is huge and I feel strong.
Day 9 – Vertical Pylo
I believe I am the most winded during this workout than I am during any other. The constant jumping with and without resistance is always tough. I did observe a noticeable difference with my long jumps. I am easily clearing the ladder. I love to hate this workout because I do love the feeling of my legs trimming down and feeling stronger. It is just the fact that my lungs are on fire every time on this day. Oh how I love the pain for the gain.
