I’m on workout 26 of Yourself Fitness now, and yeesh! I have had my ass kicked by Miss Virtual Trainer for the past two days.
It started yesterday when I decided to do a 60 minute cardio emphasis workout instead of the suggested 30 minute flexibility session. I paused the workout after the warm up period briefly to flip my omelette over (What can I say? I multitask my home workouts and breakfast!) and accidentally hit the “Increase difficulty” option on the Pause menu before I returned to the workout.
When you tell Yourself Fitness to increase difficulty on a cardio workout, you get introduced to the joys of Double Jumping Jacks, Frog Leaps and (argh!) Cross Country Skiers. CCS’s were my least favorite calisthenic exercise in the Army, and guess what? They are STILL my least favorite calisthenic exercise!
My happy YF cardio session–which was already pretty challenging–suddenly started to feel like P90X Plyometrics. :eekb: And I was stuck with a full 69 minutes of said torture.
I survived the workout and thanked the stars that the next day would be upper body.
Enter the SLOW narrow arm push-up on upper body day. :eekb::eekb::eekb::eekb::eekb:
Don’t let the pastel Lycra outfit and placid smile fool you–Maya is a drill sergeant in disguise!
