Although my heartrate doesn’t go as high, I can tell there’s a difference in how my body responds. I was getting ready for bed and the increased resistance – along with the body weight workouts I’ve been doing (tons of squats and leg lifts) – I see more muscle definition in my thighs. I’m easily making it through 50 reps and I’ve increased to 100 or until I fail to keep form. I feel a little less jiggle in my upper arms, too.
The only lack of progress I’m seeing is abs. I need to focus on strengthening my core. I don’t think I’ll ever be the type to have a six pack but I’d love a smoother middle. I mean, who doesn’t? That’s the number one problem area. I have been doing the abs workout app on my phone but I may have to add some more moves. Those workouts are pretty short.
