I’m starting week two of a “lose a dress size in 21 days” boot camp, and the three — yes, that’s right, only three — workouts a week are … well, the expression that comes to mind isn’t really blog-appropriate, but let’s just say it has to do with kicking my “something.”
And, to really top things off from an ego standpoint, the workouts are only 30 minutes long (not including pre-workout stretching, which is highly encouraged).
The workouts vary each time, but the basic concept is to do quick bursts of exercise (sometimes 10 seconds, sometimes 50 seconds) and then take a very short rest. Ten seconds of intense exercise/three seconds of rest, or 50 seconds of intense exercise/10 seconds of rest. By the end of a set, which is usually less than two minutes, I can barely move, or breathe!
So … I’ll keep you posted on
a) If I see results.
b) If I feel stronger … it is the start of ski season, and I’m interested to see if I can tell a difference.
c) The eating plan and the science behind why this type of exercise/eating works. We’ll be learning more over the next few weeks.
A toast to health and happiness!
