Here are the results from today's 5:15 am workout:
|Exercise||Day 1 Reps|
|Low Plank Oblique||22|
Now, the bar has been set, and it's a pretty low bar if I do say so myself. Apparently, I will be repeating this test on Day 15, Day 36, Day 50, and Day 63. This will give me a way of measuring my progress along the way.
Here is a little summary to let you know how I felt during the video. First of all, my heart rate was above 80% of max when I finished the ~2 minute warm-up before the stretching. Next, the switch kicks (first exercise in the test) are tough to count because I am certain that the ticker was going north of 160 beats per minutes while I tried to do the long division (dividing by 2) in my head. So, the 35 is more of an estimate than an actual number. Next, I thought I was going to collapse during the last 4 exercises. My test results in the last half will improve a great deal if I can improve the cardiovascular fitness enough not to be redlining before I get to them. Finally, if today is any indication, I will need the barf bucket close by for the normal workout.
Tomorrow is my first real taste of the asylum. I am doing the "Plyometric Cardio Circuit" on Day 2 (just like the poster tells me to do). I will report on that little nugget if I survive.
In other news, you shouldn't leave a "temporary" crown on your tooth for close to 20 years. (In my defense, I was not aware that it was temporary.) It causes a lot of trauma when you finally let the dentist fix it. I struggled mightily to be productive after the 2.5 hour session in the dentist chair this morning/afternoon and lost the battle.
