Roctober Fitness Challenge – Day 5

Five days in and not a single comment. So either my audience is telling me they really don’t care about this much fitness, want more stories, contests and art, or are just so busy from working out that they can’t even use their arms for feedback.

Either way, I’m committed to this month being about fun, fitness, festivities and females, so I’m going to post the entire month of workouts. You never know, one day you might want to come back and make use of them.

  1. I will make a comment for you! I enjoy reading your blogs even though I am not a fitness fanatic. I respect your professionalism as a personal trainer and enjoy reading your blogs and your music. Keep at it.

  2. Not a bad set of workouts. Currently finishing a P90X custom program while running 3-5 miles in the morning. I’ll give this a try in a month or so and see how it goes.

  3. I’ve been following the posts with great interest and was planning on starting the program when my current cycle finishes on monday. so no, the lack of comments does not translate to a lack of interest :p

    • Be careful with swapping rest days. They are staggered for a reason.

      Your body needs the back to back work days to become accustomed to the exercise.

      It needs the single day, and the double day, to recover from the intensity you should be doing these workouts at.

      Just a word of advice.
