Workout Results for 4/10/07 - Day 1, Week 3, SI6Day 1, Week 3, Slim in Six Workout:
Program Followed: Ramp It Up
Program Duration: 47 Minutes
Difficulty: 1st Day on Ramp It Up . . . feels really LONG!
So today was the first day I've done "Ramp It Up" the second of the three workouts in Slim in Six. You start out the same as Start It Up, but faster. So all the moves you did in SIU are in this one, but much faster. And some of them get modified a bit, like the squats you add some kicks, etc. to them. The thing I really liked about RIU is that you add the resistance bands to really work on your biceps, triceps and shoulders. However, after the resistance band work, my arms were shot and I was useless for the pushups.
Now also, you do some work where you're on your knees and elbows and doing various leg lifts. Really works your bum. I could do most of them, but had to take some breaks in between. I noticed that the timer on the ab workouts was longer than for SIU . . . they add quite a bit more abdominal work in this one too. And after the ab work, there is still 6 minutes left on the timer and they add Yoga for that last 6 minutes. Just to show me how inflexible I am.
It's a great workout! Just gotta keep motivated to keep "pushing play".
