Yesterday I wanted to try a new workout because I get bored with the same things over and over again which is why I love youtube. I can do a different routine every day of my life without ever having to repeat one, well, unless I live to be like 10,000 years old or something but that’s not even possible so what I’m saying is absolutely correct.
Anyway, I decided to do a barre workout, but because I was really busy doing work things yesterday I didn’t get a chance to begin the workout until around 4PM. Typically I like to run in the morning and then do any additional workouts during the week on my lunch hour. The main reason is so that I don’t have to deal with situations like the one I dealt with yesterday.
This is the workout that I chose and let me just go ahead and warn you, it almost killed me. For the record, I haven’t done many barre routines. As a matter of fact, I have no idea how hard they should or shouldn’t be, but this is the hardest one I have personally ever done.
That being said, I actually liked the workout except for the fact that some of the exercise counts are in 100 increments and the lady actually counts off every single one. When I’m really pushing myself and sweating like a pig, I don’t need to know that I’m only on 38, 39, 40, 41…you get the point. It’s freakin annoying!
Sometime around the 17 minute mark, you do thrusts, yes thrusts, exactly as you are imagining them. And this is the time that MacGyver came home and the reason I avoid late day workouts.
MacGyver: What the hell are you doing?
ME: A barre workout.
MacGyver: Seriously? You’re thrusting. Thrusting is part of the workout?
MacGyver: So this is a real workout?
MacGyver: When do you move on to the pole?
ME: It’s not that kind of bar!
UGH! I made it to the 31 minute mark and then I shut the thing off.
This morning I was searching for fitness workouts on youtube looking for something different and I found the most delightfully disturbing thing I’ve ever seen.
I am sticking to a squat workout today, preferably at lunch. It seems to be the safest bet.
WTF? It is Wednesday!
Do you mind if your spouse or partner watches you work out?
Does it bother you when the instructor counts off every single rep?
