Day 40

Day 40, Legs and Back and Ab Ripper. To recap, all pull ups, lunges, squats, and calf raises.

This workout really gets me sweating!! I up my weights on everything to 8 pounders, except for the balance lunges at the start, and the the toeroll lunges. I don't have the best balance (chalk that up to only having one eye) so as it is these are an extra challenge to me. That being said, I've already noticed improvements in my balance, so maybe soon I can add the weight on these. I even add the curls to the step back lunges. Woohoo...

Ab Ripper goes well. Have I mentioned that pain in my lower ab is completely gone?? So thankful for that.

Have you noticed all the clapping at the end of this one? Is there a studio audience? Do they all have this clapping at the end and I've just never noticed it before??


  1. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with balance issues for this! I was even grumbling this morning during the workout that I could do so much better - lift heavier and do all the reps without a break - if I could just stay on my feet. I'm hoping yoga helps with that, though, and I use my Wii Fit once in a while to work on balance, but I don't think I'm getting any better.

    I haven't noticed the clapping, but I turn it off as soon as that last stretch is over.

  2. I think you said you were drinking the Biggest Loser Protein shake and that you bought it in the store. Can you tell me what store, unless it's not a chain? I'm working where I can get it. I don't think I've ever seen it. Thanks!

  3. I can find it at our local Hannaford grocery store, and have also seen it in a local health food store..
