How did you get on with week 1?
For Lou from Life By Equipe, the biggest changes she saw were the change in energy levels.
"From day 1's boxing class to day 6's double whammy - I was surprised by how energetic I felt at the end of the week. Normally the thought of 7 training sessions a week with 1 rest day would have made me shudder, but Lucia Farina's (Frame's Personal Training Co-ordinator) plan, mixed up the intensity on each day nicely and the variety of classes kept me motivated.
I ended up having a private Box Train class on Day 1 with the super motivational Terry Longmore, who's punching drills made my arms tingle for days. The Reformer Pilates, Barre and Yoga classes were welcome change in intensity throughout the week and helped to isolate smaller muscle groups after the explosive Boxing, TRX and Lift workouts.
I dread to think how many planks, plyo box jumps & tricep dips my body will be cursing me for now but actually after the initial DOMS, I noticed:
- I had better sleep each night (probably because I was knackared)
- I drank 2L of water a day...a healthy habit I'm looking forward to keeping up
- My normal sloth-like energy levels when PMS-ing were replaced with bursts of morning energy, which actually kept me motivated not to sack-off the plan and kept me focussing on technique when in class".
How did you find week 1?
