Body Rock Workouts - My new obsession

So for about 4 years I've been working out with this dumb cardio and strength training dvd plus running about 4-5 times per week and haven't seen much progress AT ALL. I eat a (fairly) clean, healthy diet...and no, I do not eat too much. Ok, so I lost some weight but I had no definition in my muscles. I did not feel stronger in any significant way. With all the running I was doing I still wasn't getting faster and didn't feel like I could add any mileage without feeling like death. I was getting seriously discouraged and really didn't know how I could work out more than I already was. I was already spending about 1.5 hours a day and even longer on days I had a run scheduled.  Oh and did I mention I HATED every second of it. HATED. IT. (except for the running part)

About 4 months ago I started doing some research about working out and different techniques. I stumbled across the greatest site evah- Body Rock tv . Seriously, go look now - I'll wait. =) The brain (and body) behind this amazing site is Zuzana. You can see EVERY SINGLE muscle in this girl's body. It's just incredible. Like watching a race horse in action. lol


Her workouts are challenging, fun, and addicting. And Zuzana is funny, motivational, and just as sweet as can be. I can't wait to do my workout each day. Some nights I actually fall asleep pumped up thinking about my workout in the morning. I'm getting definition in muscles!! I'm seeing my strength improve every single day.  And my runs- they're getting easier with less training!  I did a 6.5 miler the other day and shaved off 2 minutes from my normal time. But that wasn't the greatest part. I felt like I had too much gas left in the tank when I was done and felt like I could have went farther and faster. Whoo hoo!!!  It's never too late to get the body you want. Take small steps at first and gradually progress but never stop!! This is Janet, a fellow BodyRocker, she is 52 years old!!

Such an inspiration! Use it or lose it they say- and that includes your precious body!! Now drop and give me 10. =)
