I had completely forgotten how tough Plyometrics could be. Before the injury, Plyos was too easy for me and I had to substitute it with workouts like Kenpo Cardio Plus, Interval X Plus, or Cardio Intervals, but when you don’t do any cardio for 2 months, Plyos all of the sudden becomes very hard! I got to wear my Heart Rate Monitor for the first time for a cardio workout, and stayed consistently around the 175-180 range, which is pretty high, but shows I pushed myself.
Starting out wasn’t too bad. I did very well with the first 2 rounds of exercises, but then became very tired at around the half-way mark. As tired as Melinda and I were, we still pushed ourselves and completed the entire workout. The two exercises that were toughest for us both were the “Rock Star Hops” and “Jump Knee Tucks.” Melinda thinks that the “Hot Foots” are right up there with the others though, and I might have to agree. Today we are both very, very sore in our quads, hips, and calves.
Sorry for the short post, but it’s time to workout! Shoulders & Arms here I come!
