Get Brycked Up!

I must get B.R.Y.C.K.E.D again!

I got B.R.Y.C.K.E.D Up, and I want to do it again and again. Two weeks ago, I was able to participate in something so fun, intense and different.  It was an hour and 20 minutes of pure sweat, laughs, smiles and hardcore non-stop workout.  I got B.R.Y.C.K.E.D Up, and I am now hooked.  I was invited by a friend to try a new workout; Of course, I was gamed!  When I got there, it was instantly enticing.  It was like stepping into a club there were Black Light, Strobe, Disco Ball, Carribean, Latin, Hip Hop music and sensory overload!  After the 2 minute warm up I was drenched in sweat and Tru Adams, the creator of Brycked Fitness was like, “Now let’s get started.” It was on an popping from that point forward.

Pound it!

Pound Fitness

The last few weeks have been an adventure in fitness. I have been trying out some cool classes like Insanity, Kangoo, themed runs, and Pound! Have you ever Pounded or also known as Rip Stix? It’s  interesting class it’s full cardio movement and drumming class.  You use weighted drumsticks and concentrate on different areas as you drum to the beat.  Keeping up with the rhythm and drumming almost distracts you from the pain in your quads from the 50 consecutive body weight squats you just completed in 1 minute.  I would describe Pound as a cardio workout that combines Pilates, isometric poses and plyometrics.  I attended a class at The Riverton Health and Fitness Center. The class I took was 30 minutes, and it was all I needed to do.

I’m Back-Running in the Super Run Philadelphia

TheSuperRunWorkoutWednesday

I DID IT! I also had a blast doing it. I ran my first 5k in 9 months. I used to run 5ks on a regular basis about three years ago but after having my last daughter and life running took a back seat.  I miss it so much; I didn’t realize until I barely trained for this 5k.  I have to admit I did not train well, but I liked to think that my weekly HIIT and Tabata gave me the endurance I needed to run the race mostly.  I did stop twice to walk but picked back up very quickly and surprised myself with an almost 39 minute 5k.  Now, I will admit it was my worst time so far but having ran a 1 mile twice before and did almost zero cardio in over 11 months I think I did awesome and even if I didn’t the experience was great.

Yep, it’s Insanity?

Workout WednesdayInsanity

Recently I decided to try an Insanity Class. I am sure that you have seen the infomercials. A high-intensity cardio workout that is supposed to get you results. Also, the name alone is something to either be very cautious of or curious. I chose curiously; now I am not a BeachBody representative or distributor. They did not pay me nor do I get any commission from this post but I am exploring different forms of exercise on my weight loss journey and having a lot of fun trying new things. I was invited by a friend of mine to try this class. I went for three reasons:

1) I’ve been in another plateau for the last few months. (So annoying)

2) I was curious I wanted to see why some people just love to put their body through an insane amount of cardio for 45 minutes...
