Not Sorry for Bodyrocking

I am sore. I am really sore. My glutes are sore. My shoulders are sore. My pecs are sore. My lats are sore, which is a new one for me. I think that the regular style push-ups are causing the lat tenderness.

Oh... I'm not complaining. If anything I'd say I'm borderline-bragging.

I might be a little (or a little more than a little) sore but I feel even more amazing. The soreness means that I'm working my body. It means that the exercises I'm doing are working. It means that bodyrock is no joke!

Sure any trainer could prescribe a workout regimen similar to the exercises on bodyrock. I could come up with my own plan that's very similar. But? It's much easier to follow what is on the website. It's also giving me a good idea of some exercises that really seem to work. In addition to using BR for a workout tool I'm also using it for a learning tool. It's definitely helping me to learn more about different exercises.

I think one of the best things about BR is that it is helping me realize that I am much stronger than I thought. I'm gaining some confidence when it comes to my physical abilities.

Two weeks ago I wouldn't have attempted to do regular push-ups. Until yesterday I hadn't tried in ages... It was so long, I am not even sure how long it was. Today I did several regular push-ups. I did do a few girly style but I think that's because I did two BR workouts in a row. My muscles were tired and shaky.

I lost my balance doing superman push-ups... Do a push-up then lift one arm and one leg (same side). I think I was getting tired because I kept nearly tipping over (even doing girl style push-ups).

So? BR, I still love you.

I feel so good when I finish a BR workout. They're not always so easy (I don't know that any have been easy; some are just not as hard as others).

My goal is not to be "skinny." My goal is to continue to be healthy. My goal I'd to continue to get strong. I want to look lean and strong. I want to appear toned and fit. There's a quote I love...

"Strong is the new skinny."
