I just have to say – Jillian Michaels, you kick my butt! I bought her workout DVD ’30 day shred’ almost a year ago, but only recently got took it out of it’s shrink wrap. I know, I know – wasted time I could have been getting fit. C’est la vie. The important thing is I’m getting healthy now. I haven’t noticed much of a difference weight wise yet, but I do notice a difference in my appearance.
I’m still on workout one, largely because I’m a big fail at circuit 1. I can do Circuits 2 and 3. I can even do the harder versions of the exercise. I just cannot manage a pushup for the life of me. Even on my knees. I’d say it’s because I have no arm strength, but I can do all the other arm exercises with the weights. Although, to be fair, I do feel it, and one of the areas I think I see improvements is my arms. I think I must have bad form with the pushups, and the added torque is just too much for me.
I was interested in Yoga too, so I figured I’d mix up the 30 day shred with her Yoga video. Guess what? Chataranga pushups. Eventually I will get stronger. Or my arms will fall off. One of the two.
