During this 2-week long phase, she has incorporated trisets into the mix. Trisets are similar to supersets wherein you do the exercises one after another before a short rest and then repeating them and so on, BUT trisets use three moves instead of two.
And she has also prescribed a couple of new-to-me exercises.
Today’s workout called for Wall Sits with Leg Extensions using a stability ball, and something called YTI which is a move for the arms and shoulders… cautioning to use a light weight on them.
Okay, the YTI moves I can do… but the Wall Sit with Leg Extensions with the ball… not a chance. I couldn’t even just do a Wall Sit with the ball, let alone add Leg Extensions. So, I did them without the ball and carried on. I am just not that good with the ball, although I am determined to get better. I swear, I have just fallen off of it too many times.
I am loving the challenge of these workouts, though, both physically and mentally. Really.
And I think I may have neglected to mention a couple of things that have also changed from Round 4 of Best Body Boot Camp. Tina is now providing video demos of herself doing all the moves AND she has laid out an alternate plan altogether for beginners to strength training. Awesome. These Best Body Boot Camps just keep getting better and better.
And so am I.
My arms and shoulders are getting so much stronger and starting to look pretty darned good, if I do say so myself, and I can see the difference in my butt and my legs, too. It is motivating and feels good. Just goes to show that it is never to late to work hard and reap the benefits.
So, the stability ball now…. are you a fan? Have you ever fallen off of one?
