Time for a new fitness goal.
The rock climbing competition season is winding down and it seems like a good time for a new fitness goal. As much would have it, Tony Horton and Beachboy have just released their new fitness program – 22 Minute Hard Corps. It is a military bootcamp style program, 6 days a week, with each days efforts being 25-45 minutes.
I have loved Ton’t previous programs – P90X, P90X2, X3 – and when I committed to the full 60-90 days of the program I was seeing good results.
This program seems slightly less intense than the others, but I plan to add in a couple of rock climbing sessions a week (because I would miss rock climbing too much). So, with this, I am hoping for impressive results.
My goals.. and for me it is mostly about have a better rock climbing season over the summer and through the comp season next year (and looking good… I am still somewhat vain):
- lose about 10-15 pounds
- improve strength and muscle endurance
- feel and look more toned… so lose a few inches (about 10 overall)
I would say, I am starting from a pretty good fitness level. But i know i have to be lighter if I am going to do better at climbing (its a tough sport for an old guy like me) and a little more strength would certainly help.. especially though the core.
Not that this will be of much interest to those who normally read m blog, but I thought I would post on who things are going periodically.. .more to keep me accountable than out of any real interest on anyone else’s part.
So, today is day one.. pre-program fitness check, a cardio and core workout… and a little rock climbing with my kids to round it out.
