Just finished Resistance 1. It was hard — thats what she said! Lame 30 Rock reference joke aside… it really pretty hard.
The 3 sets of 5 exercises, in and of themselves were fine. It the 15 sets in 20 minutes that kicks your ass. The five exercise – push ups, squat thrusts, pulls ups, chopper lunges and sit up punches – are each pretty reasonable. I’m actually surprised there were not more combination moves that either hit multiple muscle groups our engaged the stabilizer muscles… and maybe there will be in Resistance 2 and 3. But the very minimal rest given between sets means that the workout really builds over the 22 minutes. And the end – about 1:30 of sprint and push ups… killer.
My body was pretty tired afterwards and doing cardio and core again tomorrow will be a challenge – but this isn’s suppose to be easy.
