Just wanted to check-in after my first day of NROL4W. I have to be honest, when I was filling out my chart, I thought, "this is going to be easy." I've lifted before and it didn't seem like anything difficult, just 6 moves, right? Wrong. Definitely harder than I was expecting. I was literally dripping sweat the whole time. I found the step up to be the most challenging. How high are you guys setting your step? I started with 4 steps added to a basic step aeorbic bench and that was too difficult, I had a lot of trouble balancing.
Anyways, happy to say, I'm very pleased with the first day of workouts. This is my first time doing a "plan" (I always just went to the gym and did my own thing while mixing in dance, les mills classes, kick boxing, etc.) so I wasn't sure what to expect. Cardio today and then on to workout B tomorrow!
Is the 40/30/30 regarding the "40" as protein??
HELLO!!!! Merry Christmas to all!!! I am reading the book now, pretty much done. My goal is to start the first week in Jan. I am very eager to start. A little about myself, I am 48, married, mother of 2 and grandmother to a 3 yr old precious little girl. I am a Zumba Instructor teaching 4 nights a week, Mon-Thu. I also work during the day Tue-Thu, sometimes also on Fri. My challenge is going to be fitting in the workouts into my busy schedule and also allowing appropriate rest days. Any ideas? If working out during the week I am going to need to get up very early, no later than 5am to finish on time to get ready and tackle the day plus teach Zumba in the evening. The workouts can be pretty intense most times. I am thinking the schedule should look like:
Mon: Workout A - morning, dont have to get up super early since I dont work on Mondays.
Zumba - evening
Tue: Zumba -evening
Wed: Zumba - evening
Thu: Workout B - morning, I would need to get up by 5am.
Fri: Active rest or off - I would like to take Bikram Yoga this day. I have done it twice in the last couple of months and I really enjoy it!!! I would like to do it at least once a week.
Sat: Workout A - Preferrably morning.
What do you think? I would welcome any ideas!
I also plan on following the nutrition suggestions and go back to logging in my foods. My goal is not really to lose weight but to lose fat and become stronger. I can use losing some inches now after all the eating since Halloween. LOL My calorie range is 1686 to 1950.
Sorry for this long message. :flowerforyou:
Hey everyone!! I bought this book as a Christmas gift for myself and I want to start it pretty quick here.
I'm wondering if it is possible to do this at home or at a gym that has minimal equipment. I have a World Health membership but with the January fit craze I was hoping to avoid it until maybe stage 2 and when I'm a bit more comfortable at the gym lifting weights again, I have access to a gym at work but I don't remember seeing some of the suggested tools. What to do lol...
I'm just a little intimidated to start this in a gym with meat heads.. I hate to admit it but it's true, however I want do this program might get me out of my plateau. (Sorry for the rant) and any input would be sweet.
carrieoff, I am just curious why you are doing an upright row instead of a lat pulldown. I am doing the pullover with one dumbbell as suggested in the book. :flowerforyou:
