This is my least favorite workout in Core de Force so far. There, I said it. I felt it after the first time, but I wanted to give it one more try. It’s nothing that Joel or Jericho did or are doing. Maybe it’s the length of the workout compared to the rest. Maybe it’s the structure. I can’t put my finger on it. All I know is that when I finished my coffee, I said in my head, “…okay, let’s just get this over with…” Kind of like getting a physical. I kid you not, this scene with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” went through my head. I’ve cleaned up the MEME to make it more family friendly.
I guess I’m saying Dynamic Strength is my lemons, and I wanted to bail. But, alas, I didn’t.
Don’t get me wrong – there are some moves that I like. I just don’t like the “whole.” Some of the “pieces” are great.
It wasn’t as taxing as the first time. I think that is because I did it, and knew what to expect – I knew what exercises got my blood pumping, and which ones were fillers. I still think the amount of push ups and variety of push ups is challenging. No real issues there. The floating leg scissor kick will continue to be the bane of my existence. I can only imagine how awful I’d be at that move if I hadn’t just spent the last month and a half doing yoga multiple times per week. There is a lot of hip and core in that move – believe you me. I do enjoy the balance work, so that is my non-lemon part of the workout.
Oh – and non-workout side note. How the heck does Case Keenum only throw one touch down in a game where his team wins 45-10? Really? C’mon man! At least throw for 200 yards. You are doing it wrong if your WR is pacing you for the team lead in TD passes for the game. And, for you poor Arizona fans, if I were the Cardinals, I’d see Mike McCoy as a big ol’ bag of lemons and bail his biscuit out the door FAST.
Move of the day: Reverse lunges with left lift and twist – I feel like my balance is getting there, and my twists are deeper.
Runner up: Balanced repeating side kick w/o step down – round 9 & 10 – this is what showed me my lack of kicking skills. Still awesome the 2nd time around!
