One week down! What an incredible week it was. A lot of emotions on many ends. Couple things I learned in my first week.
- Pace yourself. Even with a lower weight you can get your butt kicked
- Challenge yourself. There were many times I could’ve given up but being in that environment made me push harder
- Group atmosphere is awesome! There is a lot of competition as you go through the workouts and you definitely want to keep up with the others that have been doing it longer
- The people are so friggen nice. Everyone comes up and introduces themselves and are so helpful to make sure you are comfortable in the setting.
This week I participated in 4 workouts and what I loved was that each and everyone of them were different. Some days there was more heavy lifting or focus on strength building while others were a lot more endurance based and hit many different exercises throughout. I think every single body part got hit and boy and I sore. But it’s that good feeling sore when you know you wrecked it!
How I challenged myself this week:
On our Saturday workout, it was a team competition and Rope Climbs were one of the exercises. This was a fast-paced routine with each of us having to do 2 per round over 3 rounds. I had never done a Rope Climb before but with some encouragement and sheer will, I did a “leg free” rope climb ALL 6 Times to the top! My body hated me after but it was a rush to accomplish that mini-goal.
Rest day tomorrow and then on to week 2.
