I just finished doing Flavia Del Monte’s Full-Body-Licious workout number 1: Tight and Trim Thighs.
It took about an hour and I’m completely spent. 🙂
I’ve now done all five workouts from the Full-Body-Licious program at least once. The program consists of 5 different weekly full body workouts, but I’m still doing 3 workouts per week with at least one day’s rest in-between. My favorite workout is the one I did today, Tight and Trim Thighs. My least favorite is “Showoff Stomach”, it has too much jumping plus abs workouts have never been my favorite.
I ditched completely one move in day 3 workout (close reverse lunge) because it hurt my left knee (which rarely happens nowadays). I guess I could ask Flavia for an easy substitution that doesn’t aggravate my knee.
Overall, I think I’ve been doing pretty well. I’ve managed to find some kind of modification or substitution to movements I simply am not able to do yet. The biggest challenge has been using the stability ball – it requires amazing amount of strength and coordination just to be able to keep it under control.
If you’re wondering what I mean by difficult moves, then pike pushup is a good example. Flavia perfoms it using a stability ball, I contend with a lowly knee version. 🙂
I’ve been doing the program for two weeks now, so it’s too early to talk about results. I’ve noticed that my walking is lighter and I walk even faster now than before, and I always feel good and like my body is “in balance” the day after my workout.
It’s possible I’ve lost some fat too, but I think it’s too early for a new set of weight loss pictures. 🙂
