Les Mills’ Pump – two weeks out, plus, other things

February 13, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, unfortunately I haven’t been able to stick strictly to the schedule set in the books. However, I am trying to get at least two days out of the week in for Pump. Martial arts three days out of the week  plus night classes two days out of the week doesn’t leave me a lot of downtime, but I don’t feel too bad. The way I see it, Kickboxing, Krav Maga, and Kung Fu is still helping to strengthen my body even without using weights. Pump is the icing on the fitness cake in that sense for me.

Pump Shred is in the rotation these days. It’s a great workout, and I definitely feel the burn and the urge to tack on the extra weight (up to 20 lbs for the back and shoulder track, less for the others). I wish the system came with more weight options aside from the 10s and 5s, but it doesn’t. So, I went out to a local sporting goods store and bought a couple of 2.5 lbs. It’s not much, but it’s noticeable especially in the chest track. The downside with metal weights is you have to be really careful taking them off the bar, or you’ll scratch the finish pretty badly. I learned that one the hard way.

On to other things…

As I’m sure everyone is aware of, Whitney Houston passed away tragically. I’m not really going to say much on that other than it’s a real shame. Whitney defined a lot of the 80s for me as a kid since her videos were constantly on MTV. I never really liked her later stuff (yes, even I Will Always Love You), but her first couple of albums were pretty cool in my book. So, I thought I’d share a couple of video favorites:
