Tonight’s exercise plan included the Gaiam Total Body Crosstrain DVD, which I got back in August. It involves an inflatable disc and a bungee cord that you integrate together to work your upper and lower body, as well as your abs. I’ve actually only gone through the disc once so I was excited to see what I could.
The lower and upper body segments were fairly good. I definitely felt it in my glutes and legs, but I had some problems with the pushup segment. I’ve never been really great at pushups so hopefully this disc will help me improve them. Let’s sculpt some arms, eh?
The abs was difficult, which I remembered from the first time. But the disc is nice because you support your lower back with it as you do the crunches.
Having done yoga yesterday, I was already sort of sore. Tomorrow’s soreness should be fairly interesting. Tomorrow I plan to do MTV’s Power Yoga. (I just realized I have a total of 10 DVDs/tapes to test out, excluding the Tae Bo tapes.)
