Ab Ripper and Day 2

So, I did Ab Ripper last night after dinner and....I like it!  It's only about 15 minutes and there's an "end" in sight, each move is performed for a goal of 25 reps.  It was challenging, for sure, but doable.  Ab Ripper gets a hearty two thumbs up from me (this time, at least).  That being said, my abs are already on fire and I don't even want to think about laughing tomorrow!


After a whopping 2 hours of sleep, when my alarm went off at 5 AM I was not looking forward to jumping around with Tony.  However, knowing my husband would be doing it when he got home made me push play.

It's not....that bad.  Basically, it's 30 seconds of 3 different moves, followed by a 1 minute move,  and then repeat the whole thing over again.  For 4 or 5 different sets....I lost count.  The good news is, they were all doable, even if I did want to throw things at Tony at various points throughout the workout.  I'm not familiar w/any BeachBody workouts, so I don't have a background of their moves.  It would be helpful if Tony gave a few more form cues, I mean, I'm not quite sure how he can talk non-stop the entire time and NOT slip in a few cues.  Before completing, I wouldn't have thought this could be considered a "cardio" workout...I was wrong. Next time, I'll remember to wear my HR monitor so I can let you know just how long I remained in my zone.

Oh yeah, and I am a big fat slacker, no bonus round for me today...I wanted something to look forward to next time (which means my husband will do it tonight for sure, drat!).

On a side note, I am crazy sore and it's only been 24 hours since chest/back and less than 12 since ab ripper.  I love being sore!
