I walk my dog, do Soulcycle on occasion, even go snowshoeing, but mainly I just walk on the treadmill, watching Lisa Vanderpump and her mini-horses on Real Housewives. I feel like I'm getting fitter, for sure.
Still, not seeing the scale move is super frustrating. Planks have been getting easier, burpees are still horrible but better, and my jump-roping skills are tops. I wanted to do this while eating like a normal person — no crazy calorie counting or stick and leaf diets — to see what would happen, because some of the BBG transformations are so extreme. I give up carbs for one day, then break down and start buttering a second piece of bread. Time to ramp it up, and Kayla does not disappoint.
Some of the exercises frighten me. I take a pass on the one that requires me to jump up onto two parallel benches into a squat. I don't think I will clear the bench, so I never even try this.
During another exercise, I slam a bosu ball into my shin, resulting in a gnarly bruise. I also add HIIT sessions, or 30 seconds of sprinting on a treadmill then 30 seconds of resting repeated over a period of 10 to 15 minutes.
This workout requires lots of chunks of time. A photo posted by goshgeegolly goshgeegolly on May 26, at am PDT. I share more photos to the BBG hashtag to power me through the last weeks. Like all things in my life, it takes me until the 11th hour to get serious about my diet. People even plan local meetups to do the BBG workouts together. I usually did each exercise for example 15 pushups, 15 burpees, 60 bicycle crunches, 30 weighted step-ups twice per circuit.
You get a one-minute break between circuits and a guided stretching session when you're done for the day. I find the abs day to be the most difficult, in part because I have scoliosis and can't do all of the crunches correctly.
I make modifications, like doing regular crunches instead of full-body crunches. Listen to your body and don't be afraid to modify the exercises. If you download the app, you can also check the alternative exercise to see if it works better for your body. Itsines suggests power walking for LISS, but she says that you can also do yoga, swim, go for a slow jog, or take a leisurely bike ride. The key for LISS is to keep your heart rate low and to go at a steady state.
In the one high-intensity interval training HIIT workout a week, you alternate between sprinting and walking and repeat for minutes. The new workouts feature a variety of trainers and programs like yoga instructor Sjana Elise Earp's "Body and Mind" a Vinyasa-style yoga and recovery workout , Itsines' BBG Stronger a BBG-style workout that incorporates gym equipment , and certified trainer Kelsey Wells's Sweat PWR a weight training and resistance workout , and Post-Pregnancy a post-natal program that focuses on core strength.
I haven't done the full week BBG Stronger program yet, but I've tried a few sessions and like that it teaches you how to use fitness equipment correctly.
I plan on trying the yoga classes on LISS days. I feel healthier and empowered from doing BBG. The program helps me stay accountable because I want to check off all of the required workouts each week.
