My legs are so incredibly sore from yesterday's Total Body Trisets Lower Body Premix!! Bending down to tie my shoes is a real challenge, as is bending down to pick anything up. And I could have kicked myself yesterday when I walked downstairs only to realize I forgot to bring something down with me. That meant an EXTRA trip up the stairs. OWEEEEE! Though, that's the sign of a fantastic workout!
Today I thought about going easy and doing some gentle yoga to stretch things out but then decided to stick with my plan and go for it and I'm so glad that I did! On deck for today: Low Impact Challenge (from Cathe's new Low Impact Series), which is a step workout. I felt really creaky in the warm-up, as in ouch! this hurts to move any part of my lower body, but then once the blood got flowing through my muscles I was feeling a bit better (not great, just better). This 50 minute workout consists:
- step combo #1
- step combo #2
- step combo #3
- step combo #4
- all combos together
- cardio blast
In addition to a bunch of premixes (including 4 express ones), this workout also contains a 22-minute step circuit bonus that uses gliding discs and dumbells, which I will have to try some other time since today was strictly a cardio day.
This was a FUN step workout and has all the complex choreography that Cathe fans love! I was never able to get all the moves down for step combo #4. There were times where I just knew I couldn't get the footwork down and would be staring at Cathe saying, "Really?!" and other times where I would think that I had it and I'd look up and see that Cathe was on the other side of her step. LOL! So I'll need to do that one a few times before I am in sync with Cathe and her crew. There are some moves for the core and also some burpees with pushups built right into the combinations. Pretty clever, Cathe, pretty clever! There were also some lunges and squats in the combos. I was wincing and grimacing through all of those!
