30 Day Shred Challenge: Day 9

Sweaty is an adjective I use to describe how I feel after Level 2 of the Shred. Especially after this level's cardio. Those in and outs and plank jacks make me drenched like a sprinkler system.

It felt better today, though, and I felt stronger and more balanced. I didn't fall over on the one legged shoulder presses, but I still used 3 pound weights on the chair pose V raises. I think since I haven't had a recovery day, my shoulders are fatigued.

I know that muscle builds on days of rest. Since there is no rest on the shred, I wonder when the muscle will grow? I should research that.

I followed Level 2 with the Core Rhythms Quick Workout, a fun 25-minute ballroom cardio DVD that I love. I feel like I'm Dancing with The Stars! Nothing is more hilarious and cute then the Russian accents the instructors have.

Alright, shredders. Let's get to Day 10!
