Day 1 again/Night 1

Sadly I was not consistent over the holiday and my weight shows it. I am now 189.2 lbs so I’ve gained a couple of pounds through this process. I started (again) the bodybuilding.com 7-day beginner trainer along with my own personal HIIT cardio program this morning. I was able to finish 10 rounds of day 1 in 15 minutes. I then went back to the gym tonight and did an hour of cardio, 25 minutes on the bike 6.6 miles and 35 minutes on the elliptical 3.5 miles.

My mission is to be 165 by March 2015 by working out and eating 1600 calories per day. Here’s my stats and picture from my workouts of the day, wish me luck!

7 day beginner trainer by Bodybuilding.com

So this morning I started the 7-day beginner trainer from bodybuilding.com. It was a very simple but challenging workout. In 10-15 minutes your are to continually repeat the following workout:

1. Body weight squats – 8 reps
2. Inverted rows – 8 reps
3. Push ups – 8 reps
4. Alternating lunges – 8 reps on each side

I’m happy to say in about 13 minutes I completed 7 rounds equaling to 56 reps for each exercise. I followed the circuit with my 20 minute HIIT workout on the bike completing 4.8 miles. I’m so happy to be back in the gym doing my 7-day fix!

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!!!
