With the boot camp behind me, I began using the Firm Zip Medicine Ball Kit. As I explained in my previous post, the kit comes with a calendar and I will be following their calendar’s suggested workouts for each day. During the first week, we only do one of the workouts. That’s only 15 minutes of exercise a day. Next week, however, there are two days when we do two back-to-back workouts.
Thus far, I am still not excited with these workouts. In my review, I mentioned that the instructors do encourage the user to not use the medicine ball or the core ball during the workout. But, honestly, this suggestion is just weird because so many of the exercises require the use of the medicine ball. I am still feeling too uncoordinated to follow the moves and the same 3 workouts were rotated the first six days so I did them the first time without the ball and then used the ball the second time around. (I’m a rebel and always used the core ball.)
And we got a scale so I was able to weigh-in this week. Woohoo! Better still, I lost nearly 4 lbs in 3 weeks. That means I’m still in my target range of losing 1 lb a week.

(Quick explanation: The medicine ball that comes with the kit unzips to reveal a core ball. The medicine ball weighs 5 lbs and the core ball weighs 3. When the core ball is zipped up inside the kit, it's 8 lbs all together. I hope that makes sense.)
