Just go for it
I was doing Tae Bo last night. You know, the one from 1999...doesn't make it any less relevant or hard. But as I was doing moves that I once thought I could never do, I appreciated the chance I took just to see if I could do the moves. There are these fighter kicks that Billy does that he basically just kicks his legs forward really fast and this is one of the moves I thought was for super skinny people and it would be a long time before I could ever do it. It's one of my favorite go to moves now especially if I need to modify in another workout but keep my heart rate up. He also does this one where it's a knee lift on both sides, then a kick on both sides and four jumping jacks then repeat. I always did the first two parts but modified the jacks. Last night I did it all the way through even though I was having one of those nights where I felt a lot heavier. (You ever have that? You just feel like lead some nights?)
Another one is Turbo Fire's air jacks.
Now the Mr does these all the time because he needs insane moves to get his heart rate up since he has the lung capacity of uh...something with a really large lung capacity. Me? I'm content to do regular ol' jacks. Well lately I've been throwing in some air jacks as long as my knees are up for it and feel so proud of myself when I'm done. I tend to smile when I'm done like "yeah...air jacks are my beeotch now!" There's nothing more satisfying than bustin' out a move that you never thought you could do and not plan it, it just happens organically. I'm looking forward to more of those moments! Burpee...you're next on my list!
What move have you done that you were most proud of at the time? What move are your looking forward to conquering?
