So I picked out the plan I was going to do and did the first DVD, Bum Bum, bright and early on Saturday morning. I had watched the basic video first just to learn some of the moves. Then, I started the first routine. And before I go any further, let me just tell you, the instructor, Leandro Carvalho is an interesting character. It's a little hard to take him seriously.
Anyway, the workout was 25 min and was HARD! I was not expecting to be so worn out so quickly. I mean I think I am in OK shape, but I was out of breath in like 5 min! The workout goes from one move to the next without stopping. I am sure my endurance is going to improve over time, as well as getting a good strength work out. I had to stop a few times and catch my breath and get some water. Even having to get a graham cracker so i wouldn't pass out! haha.
All in all, a good workout that I hope I will improve upon.
And just to prove that it will definitely make you sweat, here is a pic of me after.
This is 25 min people! No retouching done! I like sweating though, makes me feel like I am really working.
So the plan is to actually "start" the program tomorrow. It's a 4 week deal. And I will keep you updated with my progress. Wish me luck!!
