Today I’m continuing my experience with my first time through Les Mills Combat, during which I did the Supreme Warrior schedule. If you’re new to this series, you can learn about the program and why I did it here, my first week of the program here, and weeks 2 & 3 here.
I made the mistake of waiting too long after eating again (you’d think I’d learn). So that I wouldn’t completely drop out of the workout, I skipped the two exercises in the middle where the girls do one and the guys do the next one, which shaved about ten minutes off the workout.
I ended up skipping a day and then doing the plyo day. It’s not really my favorite day, but I got through it.
I did this a little further back from the tv than usual because I was trying to avoid the sun beating in the window (we recently moved, and I still needed to get curtains). That made it a little hard to get into some of the moves because I had to worry whether I was going to kick the table or garbage cans. But it was still a pretty good workout.
As much as I feel like this workout is working, I also feel like I’m pretty weak. I used to use more weight working out with machines, but I’m still using 5 lb weights (in each hand) for this workout and still getting smoked.
Unlike the last time, I managed to get through the whole workout without skipping any.
I wasn’t super looking forward to this workout, but I did it and got a good workout.
This week is all cardio with no ploy and no power, so I was excited because I love cardio. The first day was combat 30. I think this is the best I’ve done in the Combat 30 workout, and noticed I was able to put more power behind the punches. The next workouts were Combat 45 followed by Combat 60. Then the sequence repeated. I don’t have a lot to say about the rest of the week except that I really enjoyed just being able to do cardio for a change. Even though I have gotten used to the workouts, I’m still getting a good workout because I can put more behind the moves each time.
