I haven’t post about my workout routine for a while, although I post them here, I still want to write about it when I start something new.
As you know, I moved to a new house, therefore I had to say goodbye to my beloved gym. For the two weeks that I was gymless, I was feeling tired and less energetic, two weeks seemed eternity. I know.. I know, for those who take workout as an item in the to-do list, you can’t understand this feeling. I don’t workout just to keep fit, I mainly workout because it makes me feel positive and energetic. Without a gym that I can and want to go everyday, I needed something else. Well…. I build up a mini gym in our basement.
I got an elliptical (Sole E35) and a treadmill (Sole F80). They are both in high range price for home equipment but since we will use it everyday I think it’s a good investment.
You can see from this how many people in this house workout! 🙂 (Me, Star and Mom)
although it’s in the basement, we do get day light when working out! 🙂
other equipments: yoga mat and a set of 2-lb weight.
and my newest obsession: Trady Anderson Metamorphosis Method!!!!!!
from the website: In the newly released Metamorphosis by Tracy, you will transform your body, defy your genetics, and create the body that you never thought possible. Prepare to be challenged throughout this 90-day program that includes 9 discs of transforming muscular structure work, designed for your specific body types, a cardio component, and a dynamic eating plan. Experience this total transformation through your own Metamorphosis!
I’m not new to Tracy Anderson’s method, I tried and reviews her mat workout before and I really like it. I didn’t use it in a daily basis because I had access to a gym and also because I got bored to do the same 60 min workout every single day. But it does work! When I go on vacation, I would do the DVD 2-3 times a week and it keeps me pretty happy in term of how it shapes my body.
But now I wanted something that entertains me, challenges me and shorter because I like working out first thing in the morning and I can’t workout more than an hour if I don’t want to get to work too late. So I ordered this metamorphosis method. I have the omnicentric because I don’t have any part of the body that I specially dislike so I got the one that workout the whole body.
Let me tell you, it’s ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!! I just finished the first 10-days set and I can’t wait for tomorrow’s workout. I would alternate between elliptical and treadmill for 30 min followed by her workout. The set comes with a cardio workout (30 min), I tried it once. It’s quite challenging because she keeps you jumping all the 30 min but I didn’t like it much because it does hurt the knees and also I think if you do it everyday you get bored pretty quickly.
Why I love it so much? Because:
- It’s challenging! I consider myself hard core in the sense that I don’t get challenged easily by a new workout. But this one does challenges me, EVERY SINGLE TIME, specially the leg and glut part… everyday I barely finish it!
- It’s efficient. In 30 min, you workout arms/shoulders, abs and legs/glut.
- It works!!! Within days I noticed my body more toned, my arms/shoulders are more defined and my abs is pretty defined. Maybe I post a pic later, anyone interested?
- It works toward the body type that I like. Lean, long and defined muscles. To me, Maggie Q has the most perfect body for a woman.
