PiYo - Week 3 Review

I admit it! I thought PiYO was going to be too slow for me.
When I chose to do it, it was a half-hearted choice.
Was this program really going to get me the results I am looking for? I was probably going to have to supplement with other workouts.

I LOVED the 21-day fix workouts, and I knew these were different, but I decided to trust the program. Many people who worked to put this program schedule together with awesome workouts and an easy to follow meal plan, to get results.  So, I wanted to see my own results. I weighed myself on Sunday, and I've lost four pounds!!! Six more to go to lose my goal of 10.As I wrap up week 3 and the intensity builds, and I'm seeing results, I know the creators knew what they were doing!!

I’ve found the meal plan pretty easy to adapt, although you may find mine a bit boring! I tend to eat the same main items throughout the week and repeat a lot of my meals – but that makes my meal plan easier, meal prep easier, I know how I feel eating these foods, and it's within the meals my family enjoys (because I make the same meal for everyone) so to me its a win win!  I keep it pretty simple!! I've really focused and concentrated on sticking to the meal plan.

Back to the workouts…
I like the way the program builds. It has a few main workouts during the first two weeks which really allowed me to master certain moves like the PiYO cross, the PiYO push up, the PiYO Pike and others that once seemed a bit tricky! The workouts build on each other, and get more challenging as it progresses. Because of this, I see myself get stronger, as the workouts stay one step ahead so I can continue to grow and progress!

Moral of the story – I LOVE PIYO!

Monday - Define: Upper Body
Tuesday - BUNS
Wednesday - CORE
Thursday - Define: Lower Body
Friday - REST
Saturday - SWEAT
Sunday - Strength Intervals

I did the entire Define: Upper Body this week without any modifications! I also ran 2.5 miles during my sons' XC practice. During the PiYo workout felt easier to hold downward dog as long as Chalene asked me to! The same thing happened on Wednesday with Core.  I completed all the PiYo Pikes, which I couldn't do without stopping last week.

On Tuesday I LOVED, LOVED, Buns!  It didn't just work the glutes, but all of my leg muscles, while focusing on the glutes.  The next day I was SO sore! I felt the workout when I walked down the stairs!!

Even though it had been two days since I had done the Buns workout, when Thursday came and Define: Lower Body was on the schedule, I could still feel soreness my glutes and legs!  So, even though I improved in Define: Lower Body, my legs still got a workout!

By the time Friday came, as usual, I NEEDED the rest!!

Saturday I had a XC meet with the team, and did a light warm-up run with them, but only about 1.5 miles.  Then I went home and did the Sweat workout.  I know what I'm doing, now, in this workout and don't need to watch the screen, which means I can focus on the exercise.

On Sunday, I discovered Strength Intervals for the first time.  It may only be 22 minutes long, it's an effective workout, and I was sweating at the end, and barely able to finish the push-ups!!
