Are you done with the false messages of lethargy that aren’t doing you any favors? Good. I am too.
Today I did the Shred Day 9, and I have to say, it is getting easier. I’m not tuckered out before each interval is over, and I while I feel like I’ve exercised, I’m able to move around without too much muscle tightness. Which has led me to think, “Am I ready for Level 2?”
For those of you who haven’t seen the workout, there are levels 1, 2, and 3. There’s only one workout at each level, and you’re supposed to do it until you’re “ready” to move to the next level. What qualifies as ready?
Keeping up with Natalie instead of Anita?
Being able to talk through the workout without getting winded?
Wanting to move up to heavier weights?
I think the answer is somewhere in all of these questions, coupled with the idea that if you get bored, you’ll quit. So in my head, I’m moving to level 2 on day 11, with the goal of moving to level 3 on day 21. That’ll give me 10 days at each level.
How do you know when to kick your workouts up a notch?
