New Online Exercise Video Discovered - Pure Joy!

Yesterday was strech and strengthen day. I needed a proper workout after Sunday's long run (8k) which I did not really enjoy as much as I usually do. Today's run at a pace of 07.30 was much better.
 
But I digress. yesterday I did a Barre workout that I happily came across from (Just) Trying is for Little Girls. Do hop to her blog  to see how much that woman actually runs. She makes running 10 miles so easy! I think she has a goal of running a half in every state in the US :) Anyway so if she says some workout video was good, I would definitely have to try it.
 
And so I did!! I desperately needed a strength training video to at home with just body weight. When I first watched the video, I was like "No way am I going to be able to do this". But then Yesterday morning, I mustered up the courage, dragged a chair into my room, spread out my purple yoga mat and was dripping sweat by the time I finished!!! I was able to do ALL the moves :) though I did not have dumbells for some :) The topping to the cake was that all the tightness I had been feeling in my glutes, hammies and thighs just vanished with this video.
 
Its a good 40 minute long workout with cool down and so I added this workout too before I was interrupted by a wailing toddler. That was a good one to do though I wanted to do a little more even after 50 mins(unlike the Jillian Micheals videos where I am happy to reach the end). I will be definitely doing this one again. Will you try this? Leave me a line!

  2. Sugar, good going. Late but never Congrats on your 10K. Wishes for your 1/2 marathon. I have always been fan of the fitness blender exercise videos because it doesnt involve jumping and good for starters with heel spur issues. Need to try out the one which you have mentioned.

    1. Thankyou Gowri!!! Oh really .. I came across them only recently and they are so good... I wish I could do each and every one of them! Do try... many people find it very challenging. I did it without dumbells and was able to do both rounds. I will soon add the dumbells and update!
