Today I did the DVD again and did the hardest level. There is one circuit that you do traveling push-ups and then go into squats with shoulder press holding dumbbells (I did 8 lbs). My shoulders were on FIRE, it was really hard to do the second set of traveling push-ups. On the second circuit we did jumping lunges (I had never done them before starting her program). I can't even begin to explain how my legs felt. It's almost beyond pain and yet I still have to strive to do one after another.
Level 3 of the DVD is also harder because the cardio sections involve working large muscle group at the same time. Such as jump squats, or something she calls butt kicks (it's like jogging, but trying to kick yourself in the rear with the heals of your feet).
Today I also did my usual 20 minute run on the treadmil at interval speeds. I followed it up with some abs workout on a body ball, along with a one minute plank.
My body is feeling pretty spent right now. I'm just glad that tomorrow is an off day for working out. I'll probably post something on my diet.
