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!

The First 7 day Fix: The 7 day reboot

Today I will be starting day 1 of the “7 day reboot” program featured on the vie active website here: http://usa.vieactivewear.com/blogs/news/15514376-7-day-reboot-workout-plan

This program was designed by Zova*  and it aims “to tighten, tone, lengthen, lean and help you sweat up a storm.”  What I hope to gain from this program is to lose 1/2 -1 inch from my waist (currently 31 inches) and my hips (currently 42 inches), and maybe 1/2 lb (currently 188).  I also hope that this will jumpstart my attitude towards working out.  Check out my workout for today below called “Vitality” by the team at Zova:

  • Transverse mountain climbers (60 seconds)
  • 8 Burpees
  • Jumping Jacks (60 seconds)
  • 10 Push ups
  • Split Jumps (60 seconds)
  • Cardio Plank (60 seconds)
  • 20 Pop Squats
  • High Knees (60 seconds)
  • 8 360-degree walking planks
  • Butt Kicks (60 seconds)
  • Transverse mountain climbers (60 seconds)
  • 8 Burpees
  • Jumping Jacks (60 seconds)
  • 10 Push ups
  • Split Jumps (60 seconds)
  • Cardio Plank (60 seconds)
  • 20 Pop Squats
  • High Knees (60 seconds)
  • 8 360-degree walking planks

*Note I downloaded the Zova app to see if it enhances my workout experience, but I will also continue to use my favorite workout app mapmyfitness.  To count my calories I will also use the Lose It! to track my calories.  Wish me luck!!!

Introduction

Hi my name is Dani and I am starting this blog to help motivate myself to get in awesome shape without getting bored with my workout routine. That is why I call the blog “My 7 day fix.” I will feature different 7 day workout routines every week from fitness magazines, websites, etc. and I will talk about the pros and cons to each workout, along with my weekly results.

A little about myself: I am currently a postdoc at UCLA and I have PhD in Biomathematics. I am newly married and I love to eat…hence why I need to work out. I am also a former college athlete and ran track from 6 years old to 22. I am now 31 and focus more on running half-marathons and mud runs and of course having fun. Welcome!
