Yesterday, I had the chance to go to a Fit Expo at Xtreme Couture. For those not who don't live in the T., they are a fitness club that also offers MMA.
A good friend of mine is a member and has been trying to get to me to check it out for a while and I thought this was a great opportunity to see what they have to offer.
I checked out the club, saw some MMA in action and jumped in a hot yoga class. It was fantastic. One of the best ones I have been to and my body thanked me for it.
There were exhibitors for everything from clothing to power bars and protein powders. Speaking of which, I scored a goodie bag with some free samples.
Like most of you, I prefer to get my nutrients from food, but sometimes we do need a little boost. I looked at the ingredients of one of the samples and noticed this:
Artificial sweetener, my friends. It was in all of the samples I picked up. As I mentioned in my post, I am not a big fan of the taste (anymore), but I am willing give it a try and let you know what the verdict is.
Now on to the PIPES Challenge update.
I successfully completed Week 1 and it solidified what I already knew:
pushups are one of the toughest exercises out there!
After the second workout, my arms and chest were feeling the damage. It was nice to have the weekend to rest.
I am starting Week 2 today and I think I am going to alternate between full and modified pushups so I am able to safely incorporate it into my regular workouts.
Have you been to any fitness expos in your area?
How are my fellow PIPES Challengers doing?
