I’m not keen on these! My body will not do what it’s supposed to do! Marlene is constantly adjusting me and reminding me what to do, I’m really concentrating and am not sure if I’m designed for this! Holding the lunge position brings me out in a sweat! After a few sets of 12 reps I’ve got sweat pouring off me! My right leg is the real problem. When I lunge it, it simply won’t move! It’s getting me into trouble!
The lunge pull is a welcome relief after the dreaded lunges. I use the Abdominal Straps and stand in a much more gentle lunge stance and use my arms and chest to pull the Ab Strap.
The plank is helping me gain strength towards press ups and tricep hinges. I’ve never really planked before. And certainly, never been in this position and been told to suck my belly button up through my spine! This will lead into a plank on the machine next week where I’ll also feel the shake of the toning plate during the plank.
I’m always glad that I get to have a little lie down when it comes to the sit crunches! But once they start it’s hard work. I’m really hoping for a miracle on my stomach, so I’m happy to put the effort into these despite it being near the end of the workout and I’m shattered!
I’m Getting more confident going into the positions and supporting my body-weight as I roll the different parts of my body. I’ve got used to the feel of the roller and have started to really enjoy it. Through the week i my legs ache I have a little roll to help get rid of the pains.
I take this workout home with me and do it twice. I’d like to do it three times alone, but it’s taking its toll on me. I’m definitely pushing myself because the next day I’m always feeling tired in my body. Especially my thighs and stomach. All those squats, lunges and sit ups are hard work! But feeling the burn is a sign that I’m working towards something.
