Sometimes I’m a slow starter. I signed up last December (2017). I didn’t get to my first workout till July 2018. Now it’s almost October 2018 and I’m just getting to my second workout in the Foundation Challenge. I’m ready to make a commitment. I’m assuming the infection of the roots in my teeth (from cracking them in a bad fall) is gone, since I’m feeling stronger – physically and mentally.
I did a squat challenge this morning that my niece is hosting on Facebook. STRONG & SIMPLE LIVING WITH STEPH
I thought as long as I did that, why not get back to the GROW YOUNG FITNESS CHALLENGE. So here I am.
The first workout was herky jerky, since Deron moved rapidly from one exercise to another, and by the time I started with a particular exercise, he was halfway done. I get now that it’s a process, and eventually, I’ll smooth through it. The counting part was also confusing, since he’d start counting when he was already into the exercise. I’ll figure it out eventually – how many reps he’s doing. I do get a work out, but I’d probably do better without the chair. Leg lifts from a chair are not easy – guess that’s one reason to keep doing them. I think I’ll try different chairs to see if it matters.
This second work out did go a little smoother. Working on form given there are so many different exercises done rapidly is key – for me.
Where my computer is located doesn’t have much moving around space, so that could be some of the issue of not keeping up. I’ll figure out how to make more room, so I can extend in all directions without bumping into stuff. Moving my chair several times to accommodate the arm and leg extensions is distracting and slows me down too much.
I feel more motivated to finish the series now that I’ve seen some improvement since the first workout. I’m analyzing it; that’s a good sign.
