After yesterday’s killer P90X3 workout, I wasn’t sure what to expect with today’s Triometrics DVD. Was I in for more pain? Turns out yes, but in a good way.
My body was definitely feeling the soreness from yesterday’s upper body thrashing (and yet I still dream of pull-ups…it’s a sickness), so I was a little nervous about today. In Triometrics, you do a variety of 1 minute exercises but all at three different levels of intensity (20 seconds normal, 20 seconds harder, 20 seconds hardest). Tony adjusts the exercises in different ways (i.e. sometimes you go deeper, other times you jump higher, etc.). It’s really dependent upon the particular exercise and the effect he’s aiming for. The exercises themselves are varied from squats, to skaters, to frog jumps, to lunges, and so forth). The workout itself requires no equipment aside from water and good workout shoes (not running shoes as Tony always points out), which makes it nice.
Overall, I thought the workout was well-rounded and pretty fun. I liked that every 20 seconds something would change (yes, I get easily bored by working out; hence, my not being a huge fan of running!). You could also definitely feel each exercise and appreciate the different intensities that Tony brought (and the burn…oh…the burn…). When I was finished, I had a good sweat (not the dripping in my pool of sweat like with T25 though) and knew I’d worked my body hard. If I pushed myself harder, I probably would have had an even better workout (I think I wussed out a bit…). Sometimes Tony was a bit unclear as to what the next move entailed, so I would have to slow down to see what they were doing before making my adjustment. Next time when I know exactly what each exercise entails, I think I’ll be able to push myself harder. All in all, it was an excellent workout and I look forward to doing it again.
