Week Three of Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution sees beginning of Workouts 3 and 4. They build on the foundation of Workouts 1 and 2. Similar moves, yet combined and/or made more challenging through the addition of weights, plyometrics or otherwise. In Workout 3, think yoga's Tree Pose + lateral raises (with weights). Yep, Jillian raises the bar... yet she still offers up more "beginner" modifications for those who need it.
She encourages giving the more advanced moves at least a fair chance, as her philosophy (and mine!) is that you never know what you can do unless you give it a go. You might just surprise yourself. And I did this past week! I did about 4 "real" (not on the knees) push-ups, something once "impossible" for me!
Again, I mixed up the cardio days, as the same 30 minute cardio DVD for a month (for me anyway) begins to feel a little stale after the first few times. Gotta fit my running in when I can, plus I gave an elliptical a try for the first time this week. Loved it! I'm currently considering adding a little more cardio on the circuit training days. And, on my rest day (today), I plan to do some yoga. More specifically, one of my favorites:
More of the same (Workouts 3 and 4) plus MORE cardio.
Ten weeks to go!
