Work Out Sunday, August 19

I had a question about what a flutter kick looks like.  This
gives a good explanation.  Click on the image to enlarge.

I am getting really bored with this work out.  And, I am way over the 14 days that you are supposed to spend, so I don't feel like I can make an accurate assessment of whether it works or not.  On a good week, I get to the gym 6 days.  On a bad week, I get to the gym 3 days.  I feel stronger and like I have more energy and I'm sure that it is due to this work out plan.  But, I definitely have not shrunk a size.  After I'm done with this I'm going to search for something that allows for a little bit more variety.  I am encouraged by how much my weight lifting has improved, and I will continue with the strength training, so that is a positive outcome.
