Day 1 of 22 Hard Corps

Today marks day one of an eight week fitness challenge I’m starting. We are following beachbodies 22 minute hard core program.

I’m leading a challenge group on Facebook of over 15 individuals following the same program and we all started today.

My plan is to blog my journey and give an honest review of the program. The challenge pack we purchased included the eight week fitness program DVDs, access to all of our workouts online through beachbody on demand, a detailed nutrition plan with portion control containers and one month supply of shakeology. We were able to get all of that for only $140 on my beachbody website. The added bonus for all my customers is me as their personal coach!

Day one starts off with the PT test that includes jumping jacks, push-ups, pull-ups, squat thrust and a plank hold. You had one minute to complete as many reps as possible in each exercise with the exception of the plank, which you had to hold for your maximum time. I completed 30 push-ups, 40 squat thrust with a 10 pound dumbbells, one pull-up, 75 jumping jacks and a two minute and 18 seconds plank hold.  My husband and kids also did the PT test with me so it was a lot of fun!

Today’s workout was a 22 minute cardio video and then an eight minute core video. I completed it on lunch with some friends at work in only 30 minutes.  I meal prep yesterday and planned out our food for the day. It’s 6 PM and we’re still on track with our nutrition for the day. If you’re curious what I eat each day you can find me on MyFitnessPal username Nicole_J.

So far I really like the program. The workouts seem quick and effective in the nutrition is easy to follow.

Took leftover beef stew and put it over spinach and brown rice. Equals one red container, one yellow container, and one green
