TapouT XT Day One - Cross Core Combat
Today we started the TapouT XT 90 day exercise program with Cross Core Combat. We thought it was going to be a challenge but I really didn't know how out of shape I am. I had to take many more breathers than expected but we hobbled through it. Mandi did much better than I did and she commented that several of the moves were ones she had done at the gym. I think she was being nice but I should only improve from here.
Overall it was a great workout and I burned 796 calories in less than an hour. I read a lot about the challenge of the grinder, it's worthy of the hype. My goal is to be able to complete it without a break by the end of the 90 day program. One thing we learned right off the bat is that we need better mats. Fortunately, I thought so and ordered one at the end of last week. Hopefully it will get here soon because rolling around on our hardwood floor is not ideal.
After day one, I am still really glad we chose TapouT XT. It was a lot of fun even though it was grueling at times. A big lesson learned is that I need to go at my own pace. My heart rate averaged at 90% peak for the entire workout. If I slow down and perfect the moves I'm sure I will build up speed by the end of the program. I think I burned myself out too early on some of the exercises and didn't get the maximum benefit. We'll see.
