Not sure "looking forward to it" is quite right, but I'm curious to see if I can actually do any of it :mrgreen: I'm only just grasping some bits of level 3 of BS halfway though it, and my shoulders are so fucked I'm not sure I'll ever be able to do a press up other than against the wall. My lunges (and knees) are improving though. I'll give 30DS a good go though!

:)) It'll be a nice change if nothing else. :lol:

I'm sure you will be able to do lots if not all of it to varying degrees. We all say - on here - that we get better form, and therefore the moves become more effective, all the time, even though we've been doing the same dvds for years. If that makes sense. Something clicks into place more - your knees over ankles/ keeping abs tight/ inhaling in the right place/ chin off your chest etc etc.

Also, two years ago I couldn't do side lunges because I kept pulling an inner thigh muscle (adductors??) and that doesn't happen these days, a year ago I would always sprain my wrists and therefore couldn't do press ups but now I can do full press ups so things do get stronger or you realise you weren't doing quite right and that was causing the issue. At least with JM there's always a modified version.

That's good to hear. I'd been practising basic standing lunges to make sure I had the form right, and once I could do the reverse lunges with front raises (a bit).

New dvd today! I very much liked it. I knew that I would jinx myself though when I said to you Nine, about ailments ceasing. My wrist started hurting yesterday and I can't put any weight on it so I had to modify a few things (mountain climbers, burpees, planking things) but it will get better in a few days.

Which DVD is that, disc? Did you modify them by casually doing one-armed planks etc? :))

I did shred 27/30 this morning.

Good calorie burn Disco. Is that BFBM?

I did nothing yesterday (well, I ate cake and drank prosecco). I have L’s school options meeting this evening which is as good an excuse as any to put off restarting till tomorrow.

Sounds like as good a reason as any, Tex! And MrT’s birthday celebrations sound good with cake a fizzy wine.

Yes, it’s Banish Fat Boost Metabolism. Not quite, nine, though JM does do one armed burpees! I planked on my elbows, did high knees instead of mountain climbers then found later on she does upright mountain climbers which got my heart rate going! I did ski moguls instead of twisting planks and can’t remember what else.

My wrist is worse today. Just pushing down on a door handle makes me yelp. I started Killer b&t but the first exercise is a planking thing so I felt demoralised and did dancing for 40 minutes instead. If I’d have though about it I would’ve done barre instead but I only thought of that during Jolene :sing: and that was about three songs in.

BFBM with wrist mods. It was an even better calories burn than the other day!

I like it.

Is it as frantic as 6W6P?

I have run, fairly slowly but there was a reasonable amount of chatting.

No, not at all. In fact I am going like the clappers in things like ski moguls and knee thrusters and when I look up they're all going really slowly!

Running and chatting is extra exercise in itself.

Shred 28/30 done! Nearly there. I was just drying my hair in front of the mirror and the muscles in my upper arm are definitely looking more defined :hulkhogan:

Well done Hulk Nine.

I am having a rest day. I had 3 days off midweek so I haven’t really earned it but there is gardening happening so I’m not entirely sedentary.
