Another week has gone by! This was my second week doing PIIT 28, and this week went by way faster. Not sure if it’s cause I’m getting stronger so the workouts don’t feel as bad, or if it’s just cause I’m used to repeating the videos 4 times now. Probably a combination of both. The workouts from this week were similar to last week–there were a few familiar moves. But they were all structured in a different order, and you’d be surprised at how much of a difference this makes! This week, I noticed that my abs were sore after almost every workout, even though only one of the workouts specifically targeted abs. But I think that’s great! Because even though you’re concentrating on one particular area of your body, your WHOLE body is getting stronger. I’m definitely seeing improvements in strength. I can finally do burpees continuously for 45 seconds 😀 Last week I think I did like 4 before dropping down to my knees. That’s the real beauty in these workouts, I think. The moves individually might not look very challenging, but when you’re going 4 rounds back to back with 7 moves in each round, IT’S HARD. And you get out of it what you put into it.
I only took 2 progress pictures this week. For the most part, they look…not that different from last week’s. I think that’s cause from day 0 to day 7 the workouts totally shocked my body–and the results were more dramatic, especially because I think I already had an okay foundation underneath a layer of flab, haha. But from day 7 to day 14, the differences are much more subtle. My body feels a lot stronger, though, and that’s what matters! My energy has been higher throughout the day as well, and I don’t find myself craving unhealthy foods as often. I think the biggest change in week 2 for me was my mentality. And I’m excited to tackle week 3!
The pictures above are both from today. The one of the left was right after I finished working out. You probably can’t tell from the picture, but I was dripping in sweat! So I went to change into a clean (and dry) tank 🙂
This is the transition from day 0 to day 14.
This is the transition from day 7 to day 14. Differences are more subtle here.
I’m excited for week 3! Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about PIIT28, the workouts, etc. I’ve gotten questions from many of you already and I hope my weekly updates have helped!
