Matt and I signed up for another 7 weeks of 2 Strong Training. It is now called XFit Couples! Uh oh! This class is now a more advanced class as it was difficult to cater to beginners up to advanced. There are 4 couples now. It was fun. It was HARD. It was fun. Today was the first class and we started it with a fitness test. After a long warm up of jogging in place, jumping jacks and stretching we were off! 10 exercises performed as hard and fast as you could go for 1 minute! Umm, yea. This was hard!!! We will retest again during week 7. So I need to work on my pull ups in the mean time. I cranked out 5 in 60 seconds! Haha! I have been stuck at 4 so I was happy…and this was exercise # 10 so I was super tired and fatigued already. yea, that’s it! 😉
A few of the other exercises that I remember, in no particular order:
full sit ups
up and downs
switch kicks ( killer)
globe squatsg ( I have never seen/heard of these before – you basically squat and hop back and then to the side until you complete a square. No idea why it’s called globe- the earth is not square shaped. Or is it!?!??!?! )
Plank in and outs
I can’t remember the rest! Trust me when I say that they were HARD! I must have blocked them out!
I can tell this will be a competitive bunch, but in the best way possible! Everyone was working hard and encouraging each other along the way- especially during those dang pull ups! I am already sore from tonight’s class. Love it!!
On tap for Tuesday: Run in the AM? Cardio Sculpt and dinner out with Matt ( it’s our anniversary!)
