Under Armour Visit Part 2: Great Things are Coming

stronger than you think

So I left off right before we were about to get our butts kicked in an awesome but tough workout wearing the new Armour 39 monitoring system. We did a circuit workout that went on and on with moves to tone the entire body. Although it was a nice cool day, I sure was pushing hard and feeling the burn.

We finished off our workout with an Under Armour cheer (Will you protect this house?!?)

We took a look at our ipod touches to see what our stats were with Armour 39. I was quite pleased that I had a willpower of 8.58, I was working hard so it was nice to see the “proof” of that. We chatted a bit more about the intensity, heart rate, and other details of the system now that we had seen first hand how it works. It’s so awesome guys, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Something that I learned from this workout is that I have NOT been pushing the intensity like I should, except when I run. When I am running I have no problem pushing hard, but on cross training days, I tend to treat them like easy days, and I shouldn’t. This workout proved that to me, so I will be working  lot harder now.

We headed back inside for a quick shower before lunch and meeting with a few of the amazing teams that work at Under Armour.

QOTD: Do you feel like you could up the intensity of your workouts?
