I gotta be honest with you here. Week 11 is killer on the legs. I did not enjoy it. I will grant you that it does amazing things for the glutes and all the major leg muscles, but it isn’t pleasant to perform. I am certainly happy to be done with it. It certainly isn’t for the faint of heart.
It starts easily enough but once you start into the lunges, you really start feeling the burn. The resistance band becomes a huge irritation with this move because it always wants to roll up. On the video, Zoe says to keep going even when the band rolls up, but it is quite painful if you don’t readjust it.
Now, you get into a curtsey lunge at the end which really gets interesting. Trying to maintain your balance in addition to the rolling resistance band around your legs makes for some trying work.
Week 11 closes out with some challenging warrior III and some pretty intense metabolic sequences. I mean combining a malasana with a burpee type move with a push up for good measure? That really gets the heart pumping. So I definitely see the “challenge” this week. Great thing is, I’m almost done!! Even better, my body is looking amazing. Stay tuned…
