My August Challenge Group started this week and a handful of us are working our way through Shaun T’s newest program, CIZE. It’s fun, it’s hard and the more I do it, the better I get.
Now, I’m fully aware what is easy to me is not easy to someone else. When I first asked the group which calendar they planned to follow, most said the advanced for 4 weeks. There is a non-advanced calendar where you do the same workout 6 days in a row, then move to the next workout on week 2 for 6 days in a row. While I was busy hoofing it to “You’ve Got This” on Day 2 of the Advanced, I started thinking “Maybe this isn’t the calendar to follow for everyone.” I uploaded my video (the one in this post) to my group and told them to really follow their gut on if they need to repeat day 1 for an entire week so they can get the steps down. This was the 4th or 5th time I’ve done “You’ve Got This” and it was the first time I really had it. I might find next week, when I go into week 2, that I will need to default to the same workout every day, or I may find I can alternate the 2 workouts on the Advanced calendar.
My biggest thing is as long as you are DOING the workouts and following the program you’ll see success. Whether success is weight loss, being able to complete the dance without mistakes, or staying at their pace, or even just going through 4-6 weeks of Cize, you’ve had success. You’re dancing around those sitting on the couch, therefore you’re moving and moving is better than doing nothing.
