This program is all about bringing us back to basic moves; however, do not underestimate how challenging the moves might be for you! I absolutely loved Day 1 of the program, which I was able to stream through Beachbody On Demand. My package should arrive in the mail this week!
I had been in a workout slump the previous week and the sound of a 22 minute workout caught my attention. It can be difficult to balance family, friends, and work. Life surely is not slowing down and our health and wellness is often placed on the back burner. 22 Minute Hard Corps allows you to change that mindset!
The workout calendar alternates between cardio and resistance with bonus 10 minute ab workouts on cardio days throughout the week.
My workout schedule for week 1 looks something like this:
Day 1 for cardio included: lunges, bear crawls, burpees, jumping jacks, and squats. I am currently 36 weeks pregnant with my second child (*approved by my doctor to work out). I did chose to substitute the burpees for planks and the lunges for squats. The result of my day 1 workout was sweat, a racing heart rate, and the rush of the post workout HIGH! It truly felt good and immediately took me out of my slump I was experiencing the week prior. The workout was fast paced, but totally doable. The modifications were great, so no matter what your ability level might be, you can do the workout.
Tonight I am spending some time getting my meal plan in place for the week. In the nutrition guide there is a formula that you can use to figure out your calorie range and your nutrition category. There are 5 different plans to choose from based on your weight and goals. Your food is broken down by 7 groups:
- Healthy Fats
- Seeds & Dressings
- Oils & Nut Butters
I love that for each group there is a list of foods along with serving sizes for each food. So your goal is to choose from each list and put together your meals each week! If you are new to meal planning, please do not stress. I am here to help you! I always say to keep it simple, repeat meals that you enjoy, and do not over complicate things. Once you get the hang of the meal planning and preparation then you can start to change up the recipes.
