STS: Week 13 complete!

Well, it happened a while ago, but between experiments and going to a wedding, I didn’t have time to really update.  For this week of the rotation, I only did 3 cardio workouts and 2 strength workouts.  Two of the cardio workouts were both step workouts: Athletic Step and Step Moves.  I love both of these workouts, and I timed them according to my energy.  Step Moves particularly helped me out of a lethargic funk.  I also did HiiT: 40/20… which still kicks my ass.  I also did STS Disc 33: Shoulders, Biceps, and Triceps.  I really have to remember to pull out Meso 3 more often — I really love the upper body disc.  I guess I can’t comment on chest and back, since I deleted those workouts this month, but the arm workout rocked!  I definitely see strength gains all over in my arms.  I’m particularly happy with my shoulders, but I do need to focus on strengthening my rotator cuff after the rotation is done. I also managed to do Disc 32: Plyo Legs.  It’s definitely not as hard as it used to be! It’s a pretty fun workout.  I think if STS did any single awesome thing for me, it would be making me less afraid of Cathe Leg workouts.  I no longer shy away from them.  I’ve found that I can jump higher without pain, too.  I am slightly concerned about my left knee, as I tweaked it a while ago, and it cries out every once in a while.  I really wish I hadn’t been so swamped this past month.  I think I would have enjoyed the rotation a lot more if I didn’t feel stuck in the wrong gear the whole time.  I had no way to do the strength workouts before I left for the wedding, so next time I get to it, it’ll have been more than a week since I last worked those muscles.  I hope I’ll still make strength gains despite deviating from the schedule.
