Just saw the answer two comments above mine, sorry!
Hi, I want to lose 20lbs so I just started this program and wow my arms and chest are sore which is a good thing :) I am currently using a heavy duty wooden kids chair as a step since the step I have is not enough height. I will have to get a medicine ball but noticed they are all different weights. What weight do you recommend?
I am considering startig this program. What equipment do I need?
Diego Navarro , i am sorry that i have only just seen this question. Did you start the program in the end? Please let me know. you will need an exercise step, dumbells ranging from 5lbs-25+lbs depending on your strength, a mat, some bands, a swiss ball, a medicine ball. Good luck with the program and Have fun :)
Jennifer Bahr I am so sorry i have only just seen your post!!! How did you do with the program in the end? I would pick an inbetween weight for something like a medicine ball. If its too heavy then you can just do less reps or use a dumbell if suitable, as a replacement. 8-12lbs is a nice starting point.
I really enjoyed this program, thank you! Due to being in my last semester before getting my degree I have been sitting for long amounts of time. This helped with getting my circulation going and gaining strength. My diet hasn't been the best and neither have my stress levels, so I am not down 20 lbs :( but now that I am finally finished with school I will be able to focus more on my health. I'm going to continue woking out to these videos. I will lose this weight! :)
Ellysla, I did not start your program at the time I posted my question, but i have started it now. I am on week 3. i like it a lot! I do not have a swiss ball or a bench but try to replace those items with other stuff as possible. One thing though, for whatever is worth, i have done a bunch of other programs from other of your colleagues and those all include a few minutes to stretch and relax at the end, which i dont see in your. maybe its just me, but i do enjoy those extra minutes as part of the program as this allows me to bettet estimate my time. otherwise i need to add such a routine. Best regards and Merry Christmass!
Jennifer Bahr aw I am so happy you enjoyed it thank you!! Oh wow yes school can be such a stressful time but i am so happpy for you that you've finished! Congratulations!! Focus on the basics. Movement daily, plenty of water, the right amount of protein , veggies and carbs . Focus on making sure the essentials are there before cutting things out if that makes sense. Can feel less stressfull and more sustainable long term to do it that way. Good luck with everything and don't hesitate to reach out if you need. Ellysia xoxo Enjoy your holiday season!
hELLO Diego Navarro! Ohh I see ok fab. Wow week 3 fantastic!! Way to go! glad it's going well so far. Yes the cool downs seem to be my nemesis lol. The one piece of feedback I receive all of the time. At the time of recording this , as a coach, I felt that the warm ups in most workouts out there on the market were neglected and as an athlete who was a track athlete I know how much a good warm up and be the make or break from an amazing session so I focused more on the warm ups and not so much on the cool down, also I felt that most people kind of knew how to stretch at the end to cool down. But this was filmed a while back and if i was given the opportunity to film another series for Grokker GrokkerGrokker Grokker then I would add a short cool down just to help wind down the workout. Feel free to add a minute or so at the end for yourself though. Thank you so much for taking the time to do my program and keep me up to date with your progress. Thank you so much and merry christmas to you xoxox
