Good morning everyone!
Did everyone have a fantastic Monday? My Monday was quite busy. The day started at 5:00 a.m. with the blaring of my alarm. I rolled out of bed, thru on my workout clothes, started the coffee maker, and starting packing my hubby’s lunch. By 5:30, my husband was headed to work and I turned my attention to starting the first day of Fitmixer Boot Camp.
Fitmixer Bootcamp is a 12 week bootcamp which provides me with a personalized meal plan and daily workouts. Each Monday, I am required to send in my weight. I stepped on the scale and saw 150.2. While the number is higher than I would like, I chose not to feel discouraged – I am working to improve my health and that matters more than a number.
After sending in my weight, I got down to business – the business of sweating. Day 1’s workout was a Fit Test. The Fit Test was a series of moves that were completed for 1 minute with 30 seconds of rest in between each move. Here are my scores for the two rounds I completed:
- Burpees: 20/15
- Supermans: 40/39
- Plyo Lunges: 60/30 (30 each leg R1, 15 each leg R2)
- Tricep Pushups: 20/15
- Hover (Plank): 1 minute, 15 seconds / 1 minute, 5 seconds
- Chest pushups: 30/20
- Wall sit: 2 minutes / 1 mins, 30 seconds
- High Knees: 55 right leg, 54 left leg / 43 right leg, 44 left leg
- Jumping Jacks: 100/ 80
- Side Hover Dips: 20 right side, 20 left side
By the end of the second round, I was dripping in sweat and literally shaking from the effort. I was pretty happy with my scores for the first round, but there was a sharp drop-off in round two. I noticed that I was really struggling. The Fit Test was an eye-opener. While I am fit, my level of endurance is not as high as I thought it would be. Additionally, I realized that my upper body is no where as strong as my lower body. I am looking forward to seeing how I improve over the course of bootcamp.
Well, time to head to the office. I’ll try to check in later this afternoon with my thoughts on Day 2. I will also try to discuss the nutrition component this afternoon as well.
Have a great day!
