Hey guys! So, I started the program “80 Day Obsession” yesterday. Today was day 2. My thoughts on the workout are in the video above. I mentioned in the video that I made a few modifications to the exercises. First- let me state that I do like the workout the way it is. I just felt as I was going through it, that I needed a little bit more.
So, here is what I did.
- In the beginning I actually put on some ankle weights to help me with the laying down portion and leg work. I feel as though my band was heavy enough, but there was a line between having enough resistance and having enough movement to execute the move in a way to get results. So, I put on my ankle weights and solved that problem.
- I also picked up a set of dumbbells for some of the squat and lunge exercises, because I felt that I personally needed them.
- I struggled with the “wizard of oz” lunges with the bands, so I substituted walking lunges with dumbbells instead.
- Working out with the “booty” bands is different than regular resistance. You really need to focus on the muscle that you are working and use proper form. Then you are really going to notice that those muscles are working. I was concerned this morning that I didn’t get as much of a workout as I would have liked. However, I am feeling those muscles now- hours later. So, I know that looks can be deceiving and I really did get a good workout.
I am really excited to see the results from this program. This will be the first time in a long time that I am doing a program as written- and not by me.
