Reflection


------------------------------

Today is my active rest day which I spent doing school work, piano practice, tons of coffee drinking and research on the next 6 days of workouts. Week two was designed to pump up the volume in my workout routines. For the past 8 months I've shifted my routine form high intensity interval training towards legit weight lifting and it's been fantastic. My body was shocked into dropping weight and inches and I really like the idea of lifting heavy things. I immediately noticed the strength I've gotten from weight training and I actually prefer it over HIIT. That being said, I'm actually quite nervous about week two. It's compromised of all HIIT workouts and hopefully I can blow all my old scores out of the water!!! If you're following along good luck and here is the schedule! These are last year's scores, the new ones will be in RED.

Day 8: "Give me everything"; max reps during 50 second interval with 10 second rest in between X 12 rounds

*I didn't do this day last year so I figure this would be a good workout. I've done it two or three times in the past and it's a killer workout. I'll try to dig up my old scores and post them along with this year's score.
