When I read some of your blogs, I’m seriously amazed at how much you guys switch things up in the gym. I feel like you all are freaks of nature.
I’m a serious creature of habit. Yoga, cardio and strength training are about as exciting as it gets around here.
So, the other day, in an effort to switch things up, I decided to give plyometrics a shot. Now, let me first say that I’m not completely new to this form of exercise. But this one was longer (tear) and there were things in there that I was completely lost about. It turned out to be quite the game-changer!
One-legged hop? What is this, kindergarten?
Yes, I really thought I had this one in the bag. Then, I got to the good stuff.
Box jumps? I completely underestimated the intimidation of a two foot box.
Tuck jumps? My booty will probably be sore from that for the next week.
It was like my body was saying, “Um, hello, I am NOT used to this, what are you doing to me?!”
Truth be told, it probably needed it. So I huffed and I puffed and I cursed under my breath.
In the end, my workout wound up looking like this:
*Rest for 60 seconds between each exercise*
Have you ever tried plyometrics? Have you done a new workout recently?
