I was at the gym yesterday and I did a Body Pump class which is an aerobic strength training class. It uses a platform, bar and weights. We literally pumped it up to a song called What You Got by Colby O'Donis feat. Akon and another song called Give Me love with LL Cool J feat. Seal. Our teacher challenged us to put more weights on our bars. I throught to myself I'll pass.... If I add any more weight to my bar so early in the game I'll probably wobble right over along with the bar.
Today was even more work out with turbo class. Turbo kick is a combination of cardio-kick boxing. Basically jab punches, hook punches, upper cuts and shuffles. The punching moves that can be done to the beat of the music, The song we kick-boxed to was quite invigorating, the hardest move of the body pump class was a move called burpee. The burpee is almost impossible as you get older but i have seen women as old as 50 do it.
I'm busy fighting off the calories lately from eating too many cookies some of which include ginger bread cookies, tea cakes, and lebkucken (german ginger cookies which are sold in a bag found at gingerdelights.com.)
