Circuit 3 is definitely my biggest challenge in Level 3. Walking push-ups, planks with rows & leg lifts, rockstar jumps…(though the jumping lunges in Circuit 2 are a challenge, too) I really can’t decide whether I love or hate those row/leg lift planks. On the one hand, they are really hard, and the further I get into them, the more it becomes a battle of wills between me and my body. On the other hand, I can do more of them with each passing day, and that makes me feel strong.
(I have a similar attitude towards walking planks, but those will always trigger flashbacks to the the horror of choir boot camp…so I don’t anticipate ever enjoying them, even if I do get really good at them.)
I’ve been trying to think about what I’ll do after I’m done with the shred. I like it because it’s a good circuit workout (and I’m not sure I’m ready to venture into the weight training room without a friend — those football players intimidate me). I’m considering doing the Couch-to-5k running plan, alternating running days and shred days. Or I could try a different Jillian Michaels/Biggest Loser workout DVD.
I also want to try rock climbing. And possibly start doing it on a regular basis if I don’t discover that I’m terrified of going higher than ten feet (I’d hope not…after all, I spent an entire summer perched atop extension ladders painting houses, and those don’t even have harnesses! Then again, that was almost four years ago… <_<; )
Anybody else have ideas of workout routines/systems you’ve done or heard about that I should try?
