Monday Morning Madness #62: Core De Force & Reviews


Yeah, I know it's been awhile since I have posted a "Monday Morning Madness" post, so thought I would go ahead and at least write one post for 2017, but hopefully there will be more. Anyhow, my original plan was to review the Greens Super Food in this post, but I've changed my mind and I'll feature it as a "Late Night Fitness Review" later in the week.

I'll also be reviewing the Protein Energy Power, which I just received four sample flavors (Banana, Chocolate, Honey, Original) a few minutes ago in the mail. I'll try out one of them tomorrow after my workout.

Yes, I'm still working out, but it's not my New Year's Resolution. Actually, I started a new workout program (Core De Force) on Dec. 26th, so it doesn't count as a resolution. Actually, I don't have a resolution for this year, though I might attempt to stop procrastinating.

Core De Force is the new MMA-style core/cardio workout from Beachbody. I had purchased the basic program as an early Christmas present for myself. There's a lot of kicking and punching in it, which is just the kind of workout that I like. I won't record my weight again until after tomorrow's workout (Day 30, which is the last day of the program), but I believe I have lost around 4 or 5 pounds. It might not sound like a lot for month, but I have lost over two inches my waist.

There is a workout calendar for the deluxe version, but I don't have the extra videos that come in the deluxe kit. It comes with the extra workouts and costs almost the same as the basic kit (which isn't included in the deluxe kit). I was thinking about buying it until I heard about the Beachbody OnDemand annual sale. The sale is going for about $100 and it includes access to all the Beachbody programs, including the future ones that will be released this year. I thought it would be a cheaper in the long run for me to get the OnDemand access, which I did order last Friday.

So on Wednesday, I'll be starting round two of Core De Force (Deluxe version). There's also a Hybrid version with a mixture of different Beachbody workouts. I might start that one after round two (30 days) is complete.

If you haven't noticed, I've finally been reviewing the TBR (to-be-read) books that have been piled on my desk. It'll probably take a month or so to get all the reviews written and posted on here. I'll also be writing reviews for several DVDS/Blu-rays in the next few weeks.
