Well this is a day late, but better late than never right?! I just started week three of this program and can actually (and surprisingly!) say I have got some dance moves! They may not be great but it’s a lot of fun.
Every week I set goals for what I want to get out of that week– part of goal setting is not just looking at the big picture but actually sitting down and asking yourself what is it that you want to accomplish this week?
For example- It is HOT and I do so much better when my workout is early but my Olympic late nights have been killing me so getting my workout in early WILL happen.
Next is time for personal development and reflection. I’m trying to be better about carving out space in my life and need to be intentional about it! Finally I had one too many splurges this weekend, and need to dial in the nutrition. So back to basics with no sugar.
I hung this sticky note on my garage mirror so I would be reminded everyday of what I am working toward!
Now that I’ve completed a full two weeks I can definitely say that this program is for anyone– it is low impact, but I work up a serious sweat each time I do it and can see changes in my core and that my legs get worked. My personal favorite workouts so far in it are the Dance Conditioning– mostly because it is a ballet-based warm-up and the workout Trail Ride which has some really fun and upbeat moves.
There are a few specific people who I think will really benefit from this program:
- If you’re new to fitness or hate working out– 29 minutes go by so quickly and you are having so much fun dancing you don’t realize you’re sweating.
- If you’re pregnant or post-partum– all of core work is standing and the moves are low impact so this is a great option for mamas who want to be active but have some restrictions.
- Anyone needing low-impact (for back or knee injuries) fitness that will still get you cardio.
I have added in strength training three times a week because I miss it and the 22 Minute Hard Corps program is a great compliment to Country Heat, but you’ll still get great results even if you don’t add anything in. Especially if you stick with the meal plan.
Speaking of meal plans, here is mine for the week! I’m sticking with Meal Plan A:
