When hard doesn't get the job done
I was in love!
It was harder than Tae Bo and I remember how completely whooped we would be afterward. There's this one part toward the end when this singer comes in with this angelic voice and you know you have about 1 minute left of the workout, I remember us being SOOO relieved to hear that chick's voice to signal that our hard workout was coming to an end.
Now, while Powerstrike is still a hard workout to 80% of people out there, for us, it doesn't burn as much as it used to. I burned 740 calories doing that last night when it was usually a solid 900-950 calorie burner depending on my effort in the past. It's still a wonderful workout that I would without hesitation recommend to other people but I think this is one that we're going to have to add either extra cardio or a small strength session to the end to get the job done for us. That makes me sad. I suppose I should be happy that our stamina and endurance is improving but how hard are we going to have to go to burn my 800-1000 calorie target?! I'll do what it takes, it's not an issue but dang man I kind of miss the days when this was one of the hardest workouts we owned and thought it would never get harder than that! It's a bit of a pouty day when hard doesn't get the job done. It makes you realize this is the time when you really find out how much you want it and trust me, I do.
What's the hardest workout in your current rotation?
