So I decided a week or so ago that I would stop sort of doing whichever Fitness Blender workout I felt like at the time and actually be a bit more structured. So I decided to purchase one of their workout plans, the 4 Week Low Impact Fat Loss Program. I thought starting on the 1st of the month seemed like a good idea.
One of the reasons I like Fitness Blender is that their video blogs and social media posts are all overwhelmingly positive and have a lot of great information. I especially liked the video they linked for Day One of this program, How To Listen To Your Body.
Today wasn’t too bad in general, because it was mostly taken up with a physical fitness test. I’m already tracking my walks with an app (and I’ll do a review of two of those later), so I just had to do the rest. The problem is I’m still trying to figure out how to alter exercises to not overtax my knees and hips, because in the end my primary goal is stamina and endurance for long hikes. But greater flexibility would be really nice too.
I liked the warm up for today, but the cool down incorporated yoga and kept going back to downward facing dog, a position I not only hate but quite frankly just can’t do, and I dislike it so much I don’t even care if I ever will. So I wasn’t as big a fan of that. I want to like yoga, so much about it seems so great, but I’m thinking it’s just not something I’m meant to do using videos at home, I can’t figure out the forms and half the things they say make no sense. They say to roll your hips down and I just don’t know what they’re talking about and end up confused.
Anyway, the point of this is that I’m trying to expand my fitness plans from just walking to also include a few other types of workouts so tha
