My name is Terri Louise. I am inspired by Connie's "80 Swings in the Morning" article in the latest edition of CST magazine. I would like to get some advice on designing a morning program.
My first glitch is that I travel a fair amount and I will be leaving again on Tuesday for 2 weeks. I would prefer not to wait until I get home to pick up my clubbells again. I would like to be using them.
Let me provide some stats: I am 47 years old, female, and of average body weight. No injuries, not especially prone to injury. I have done WW/Beg since June 25, 2004 (as far as I can tell). I took off a 2 week stint in late July and early August. (travel) I had 90 pretty consistent days through Oct 22 and have been working on consistency with WW/Beg every day while traveling, (and home) since. Have begun incorporating WW/Int movements.
The Clubbell® program I would like to start would run from now until (realistically) Jan 4, 2005. Most of that would be out of town time.
My goals for this program would be
a) Wanting an on the road excercise that would help me raise and balance spiking BE's that come from travel.
b) Working on consistency so my travel life and my home life are more seamless.
c) It will be fun.
I found elements of Connie's program appealing. A short, fun morning workout that helps raise BE's, but not spike them further. 15-20 min.
I have done the basic swings, forward pendulums and swipes but I did them in October. 5/5 with 1 minute rests. My RPE averages at about a 3. That was using 2 5lb clubbells at once. I haven't done any consistent CB's since then.
I thought those swings were all fun. I don't think I allowed myself fun as a goal when I started, so I didn't put any emphasis on looking for it.
I will be doing my WW/Beg, blending in WW/Int daily.
I have the clubbells DVD and book. I can take both 5 lbers with me if I need to.
Thanks for reading and for any of your thoughts,
