The cardio plyo circuit really tore up my knees (arthritis) and feet (plantar faciitis). The Cardio Power and Resistance felt better, but I hope it doesn't get too bad that I have to stop. My calves are really hurting. I'm worried about my shin splints coming back too.
I kind of like the workouts, but the stretching part of this is really a joke. I think someone mentioned it awhile back. I'm going to have to get some warmup and stretching going before I start this.
The bottom line though, is that I am a worthless pile of shit. I thought I would fare a little better than this. I know I'm out of shape but damn, my performance is downright depressing.
Not counting the knees and the feet, but the actual muscle pain all I can say is not matter how much you hurt, make sure you do the workout. From doing crossfit for 2 years, I would always be in pain if I took a little time off, but if you don't work out the next day, but wait till the pain is over, then workout again, the pain will never really go away. You just have to sack up and take it, eventually your body will get used to being physical and the pain will stop.
I can't wait for Monday, I'm really excited to start this excercise routine.
