Day 3 complete

So I did a late night workout to complete my day 3 on this 7 day reboot and I must say I could feel it in my legs. I was able to complete all 4 rounds and the only hiccup I had was the Zova app. It worked really well for 2 rounds but when I went to repeat the workout it was frozen, this maybe because I’m a free user. I will research this and find out because the Zova app really enhances the workout experience. Check out my fit pic below:

Today marks day 3 of the 7 day reboot designed by Zova and Vie activewear.  Today’s workout is all about sculpting and toning the legs using body weight, I am excited to try it!

Overall this 7 day reboot has been really good, and I the workouts have lived up to their description check my day 1 feedback here, and my day 2 here.

Day 2: Morning Warrior, Evening energize

Last night my husband and I got hit by the sleep monster so we missed our nightly workout. Thus, we were up early this morning and will be back late tonight to catch up. I wonder can you really catch up on workouts?

Nevertheless I was a warrior this morning and it was awesome check out my sweat below! I finished the workout with 10 minutes on the bike. Next up for me is the day 3 energize, so check my next post!

Day 2: 7 day reboot Warrior Workout

Today we continue the 7-day reboot workout by Zova* and vie active wear by doing day 2.  If today’s workout is anything like yesterday’s I am here for it as I got a great sweat yesterday.  Check out my review of day 1 here.

The Warrior workout (day 2) is a strength circuit where I will use 20 lb dumbbells, this shouldn’t be too heavy, I like to lift.  For the circuit below they recommend 3-4 times, I will try for 4 times.  Check out the workout below:

  • 20 Dumbbell Sumo Squats
  • 20 Dumbbell Alternating Lunges
  • 10 Incline Push ups
  • 10 Tricep dips
  • Mountain Climbers (60 seconds)
  • Russian Twist (45 seconds)
  • Rehydrate (20 seconds)

*Again I will use the Zova app along with mapmyfitness, and the lose it! apps.

Day 1 Post-workout thoughts

The 7-day reboot is off to a good start. I began the workout with a 10 minute cycling warm-up, where I finished 4 miles, before I got into the 20 min HIIT workout. The workout plan said that you will sweat and I definitely did as you can see in my pic. The workout was also challenging and by the 10th exercise I was definitely tired. Nevertheless this was a great day 1 and the Zova app was really awesome as it guides you through the entire workout!
