Nike Women's Training {Club Week 2}

Quiz: "Crazy Ivan" is (A) a 16th century Russian czar (B) an amateur Soviet boxer that Rocky KO's in the 15th round of Rocky IV (C) an ab exercise I discovered in the 15-minute "Get Focused" workouts on Nike Training Club.

Congratulations if you answered "C."

"pd3TIM">A fifteen-minute, area-specific workout is a great option for me (and for all busy moms) since my workouts typically consist of a 30+ minute run followed by stretching. I find it hard to allocate another 30 minutes so the 15-minute workouts are great to mix in throughout the week if I don't have time.

Get Focused

Last week I committed to 3 workouts but the morning after I tried the "Ab Burner" 15-minute "Get Focused" for the first time (which included 3 sets of "Crazy Ivans"), I was so sore my schedule was off for the rest of the week. I'm still getting used to all the new exercises so I guess some tenderness is expected.

Liz, from a belle, a bean, & a chicago dog questioned whether apps like Nike Training Club will replace personal trainers altogether but I think among other reasons, having someone monitor your form is super important for the overall effectiveness of the workout and to prevent injury. I'm now paying much closer attention to the video demonstrations to assure that I'm executing the movements properly. My heart and mind are telling me one thing and my 34-year old body is telling me another.

Overall, I'm thrilled with my progress and the app in general, and am committing 3 more Nike Training Club workouts this week.
