Piloga Rookie

Last night, I decided to be adventurous and try a “Piloga” class at my local gym.  Piloga is supposed to be a combination of Pilates and Yoga, neither of which I have done before.  With all of the issues I have been having with my hamstrings, I decided I would like to try to get into yoga, and I thought the addition of Pilates would make for a challenging, yet low-impact, workout.  This particular class was a little slow for my liking and didn’t incorporate as much Pilates as I had hoped (a lot of breathing and self-reflection, which I think I am a little too high strung for)….let’s just say I’m not convinced, but I’m not totally opposed either!  I actually think a regular yoga/Pilates class would be very beneficial to my overall health, I think I just need to find the right class.  It might just be a little trial and error for now!

Although last night’s workout was a bit of a bust, I did, however, get a great workout in this morning!  I wanted to get some good cardio in, but without the usual running routine.  I started with a 10min warm up on the elliptical, and then got to work on the ladder workout below.   It ended up being a pretty good full-body routine, with more abs than I expected, and my heart rate was up the entire time.  After I was finished, I realized I ended up doing 210 situps!  Kettlebell swings also work the core….so I will probably be feeling that tomorrow. 🙂
