The number on the screen is just an estimation and will continue to estimate. The HRM is a more accurate account of what you are actually doing and burning!
definitely add in a mobility or yoga workout!! you don't want to do nothing! That way the muscles just stay in place and don't get stretched and released of all that tension!
way to go finishing True Beginner!! I think Cardio Sculpt would be a great next step for you!! Let me know which you pick! Happy Sweating :)
You should definitely give yourself a rest after Inferno! It is an all out program that pushes your max but should include a break from it too! Rest, recover, and come back to me stronger than ever!
Are you in super good cardiovascular shape?? Like Alikona, she always had a hard time getting her HR into zone 4 and 5 as she is a dancer and it super conditioned in that arena. It is def something that is the difference with InfernoHR in finding how your body is conditioned and training it differently. Hope this helps for you and keep pushing!
you can def do it without a box and I'm sure you will still get a great workout :) Let me know how it goes!
I also am a pediatric ICU nurse so i understand high pressure! Working out definitely is one of my major destressers! But so is some deep breathing! Take 5 minutes, center yourself, focus on your breath, clear your head of all the nonsense around you and focus on where you are in that moment,be present, find some persepctive, bring more oxygen into the lungs. My heart rate automatically starts to calm down and I feel the nerves start to dissipate. Hope this helps :)
INFERNO! Come on over :)
SO proud of you for an incredible start on your journey! When you say you crushed your calves, did you tear them? Did you have surgery? Have you gone to rehab?? A huge thing with calves is that they really do effect your stability as often when they are hurt you tend to favor them and therefore put more stress into other places of your body. Definitely take your time and be patient with yourself. True Beginner is a great series for gaining strength and mobility especially if you are coming back from an injury. But also consider the need to consult a physical therapist as I mentioned above! Let me know how it goes!
so much about weight loss and transformation is diet! how is yours? you can't out exercise a bad diet.. so check out that first! also it's not just about pounds! check your measurements, inches, how are your clothes fitting! one more thing, if you need more of a challenge use heavier weights! hope this helps!
you can definitely do Inferno again, but also check out the new Inferno HR! :)
Make sure when you are on your hands that your shoulders are right on top of your wrists! This is the most stable position for a hand plank! When moving your legs during a plank, maybe start with smaller movements while you hold that plank position! A plank is a perfect exercise because it works not only the tummy but that pack and the shoulders, so if there's any weakness it'll be hard to move through the plank and thats ok!! Every second you hold it you are getting stronger and stronger. If you need to put your knees down just drop them down from when you are on your toes. that way you simulate the full plank more than being in table top! Be patient with yourself and just keep practicing! Hope this helps!
DOn't feel lame!!! It will take time to get used to things... and we all feel funky when we are first starting. But you can do it. Just stick with it, at your pace! You will get stronger and more confident at it!
Are you still in rehab? Until your doctor clears you for exercise I would hold off.
don't drop on your caloric intake an lower than 1200! add intensity to your workouts either but lil jog intervals during your walk or lifting heavier weights during your workouts!
