I took yesterday as a Rest Day from Chalean Extreme. I did do a little bit of exercise; wanna know what it is??? I can’t tell you what it is yet. Stay tuned!!! ;o)
Today, was back to Burn Circuit 2. In case you’ve forgotten, this is the work out that focuses on biceps and triceps and I LOVE this work out. I know I said it last week. I don’t care. I love it. ;o)
I can already tell that I’m getting stronger, and I totally need to get my ass out and get some heavier weights. I’m using my 10′s for most of the exercises, and while I reach failure on some of them, I don’t on a lot of them. My body isn’t going to make the changes that I want it to unless I’m using the right equipment.
Since, I’m getting the hang of the routine now, I find that I concentrate on the exercise and have good form, but I can also allow myself to listen more to Chalene. I noticed today that she really wants to teach you about each exercise. To me, this is important. I like to know what the importance of an exercise is, what muscle groups I’m working (if I don’t already know), and the constant reminder of form. I find that now that I can listen to her instead of just watching the exercise and trying not to fall over. And by listening to her, I can concetrate more on doing the exercise correctly with good form.
One question I do have though: All of you exercise DVD people…why are you ALWAYS smiling during these work outs? I see you smiling on the TV and I think, what the hell is wrong with them? I’m in full concentration mode, breathing hard, and grunting. I look up and see you smiling like it’s a piece of cake.
Overall, I’m feeling really good. Stronger. And I THINK I can already see some changes in my arms!! I would love to have some really toned arms! *Fingers crossed!!*
