It's no secret that I'm a cardio whore. I go to Body Pump once a week maybe, but that's where my zest for strength training ends.
I've been seeing this book pop up all over the internet, and I had a Chapters gift card burning a hole in my pocket so I procured it last night.
I skimmed it quickly, and jotted the first workout down and hit the gymbo.
This time of year at the gym is no joke - it's packed at every hour of the day. I'm pretty lucky that there are 2 Goodlife locations within a 5km radius from my house. One of them being an all-women's location - which is perfect for me - the shy/embarrassed/rookie weight lifter.
I set up shop and rocked the first workout.
I didn't feel much of anything, as I didn't use super heavy weights because the whole purpose of the workout is to use heavier weights each workout. I didn't want to go balls-to-the-wall on the first one, ya know?
Following the workout, I had plans for sprints on the treadmill - but shocker - they were all full. The only piece of cardio equipment that was free was the eeeeeeevil elliptical. I did 30 mins of intervals and the end result was a hot and sweaty Amy.
The plan calls for 3 times a week, but I've decided to do it on Tuesday and Saturday and then continue to do Body Pump and CX Worx on Sunday.
Here's hoping for a ripped moi in 2012!
Anyone else following this program?
