Yesterday’s Bodyrock workout + 2 Week Update

by Chelcie on January 16, 2012

So you may or may not know that I have been doing the 30 day bodyrock challenge

Before I tell you my feelings so far, I’ll show you what the day 5 week 2 workout consisted of

The 600 Rep Challenge-The following exercises completed back to back

  • 100 High Knee Skips-I used the Jump Rope
  • 100 Lunge kicks (50 each leg) using theĀ Pink Sandbag- I used a 12lb bar since I went to the gym to complete this workout
  • 100 High Knee Skips
  • 100 squats using theĀ Pink Sandbag
  • 100 High Knee Skips
  • 25 Straight Abs
  • 25 V Abs Left
  • 25 V Abs Right
  • 25 Bicycle Abs

This whole work out took me about 15 minutes to complete. I thought the 100 sqauts in a row would kill me the most, but it was actually the lunge kicks that were really challenging for me! They look a little like this

I did 50 on one side, and then 50 on the other side

And the final piece of the workout

Do as many Reps of each exercise in 3 minutes for 6 minutes total

Bicep Curls-My tally 112

Bent Over Row-My tally 98

For both of these I used 8lb dumbells

****

After completing 2 weeks of Bodyrock (I only missed one of the days) I am feeling really good! My biceps are SO sore from yesterdays 3 minute long bicep curls, but I love the soreness I feel from the work outs!

Here’s what I love about Bodyrock

  • the how-to videos posted everyday of the work outs show modifications in case you don’t have certain equipment
  • the workouts are short, yet very effective
  • You can do all of the work outs at home with minimal equipment
  • Hot boys at the gym will stare at you because they’re impressed that your kicking ass in the gym:)

I have done most of these workouts at home, but yesterday I went to the gym just to get out of the apartment

I really want the cliche “boy meets girl in a gym and they fall in love” to happen to me..I still have 2 1/2 more years..it is GOING to happen

Its hard for me to tell you if I’m noticing results so far because A. I don’t weigh myself in general and B. I didn’t take any measurements

But I’m FEELING a lot stronger already! And my clothes seem to be a wee bit looser

I have been eating clean most of the time, but I think I would be seeing more results if I didn’t come back to college..aka I didn’t come back to partying on the weekends..sorry I’m not sorry though because I love college:)

So no I don’t think I will end up looking like this at the end of the challenge

But that hasn’t been my point of completing this challenge

I decided to complete this challenge mainly because I was looking for a way to change up my workout routine. I love the “challenge” aspect of these work outs, and I feel like I haven’t pushed myself this much in a really long time

I’m thinking even after the challenge is over that I will continue to do Bodyrock workouts weekly, because they are super effective and can be completed in a short amount of time..which is going to be key once Spring semester starts!

Ever since starting these workouts, I have been seriously craving smoothies after I work out

Here was yesterday’s

In the mix: 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries, 1 tsp peanut butter, 3/4 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 cup almond milk

I actually ate this smoothie with a spoon because it was so thick..yum yum YUM

I have been also meaning to show you my make-shift sandbag I have been using for a lot of the bodyrock workouts

meet my carry on suitcase

Inside the suticase

About 20lbs worth of cook books, magazines, etc.

So instead of buying a sandbag for 100 doallrs, I made my own!

Today is a rest day, and tomorrow I will be starting week 3. I’ll do another full update once I’m done with the full challenge

Question for ya!: Have you ever completed any kind of work out challenge? Did you notice results?

Bodyrock sounds really great! I’ve have only done jullian michael’s dvd and I loved them all. My abs are always more define after I complete the dvd. I should really get into doing it more and try bodyrock as well.

I’m so glad to see that you’re loving the challenge so far! Major kudos for doing it at the gym too– I’ve never done the workouts outside of my apartment. I’m sure the boys were swarming ;)

Can’t wait to read the full recap! :D
