This past Saturday I decided to take my first Physique 57 class to try to get into shape in time for summer. For those of you who don't know about Physique 57, it's the fitness program that Kelly Ripa and Zooey Deschanel have used to get into shape. It is a high intensity bar method workout that is supposed to tone and strengthen various parts of the body during one session. They swear they can change you in 8 classes, so I'm taking them up on that.
My first class was really intense. We did lots of strength training [arm curls, push-ups, crunches] which were followed by a lot of stretching. I might have walked out in one piece, but I am definitely feeling the pain now. I have my next class tonight, so hopefully I can get through it without injuring anything.
