Want to get fit fast? Try O2 Max Fitness’ “The Accelerator” Spring Break Tune-Up! We decided to give it a go ourselves and we picked the best part to every work out to share with you! Here’s our review…
The first set of workouts needed a bit of core work and leg work! We had to do 100 jumping jacks that went into a squat on the way down, which burned everywhere! After we did lateral lunges and leg raises in the plank position. The first part of this workout is really what got your heart pumping and made you feel exhilarated afterwards!
My body was very sore the next day and it was extra hard to try and do another set if exercises, but I did them and I felt ready for Day 3! I had to reverse lunges on day 2 which I would say was not to bad considering I also had to do the “side plank reach around”…that move was the hardest!
By the third day it wasn’t as sore as the second but again,a pit was a little harder to get back into it! Today was all about more and more lunges but at different angles, which I felt I was more used to by the third time I had to them!
When Day 4 came around I felt healthier and stronger then when I first started. The hardest part? Those freaking side plank hip raises! It wasn’t the first time I’d had to do this manoeuvre but it is very hard to keep your balance while doing them!
Day 5 was all about your legs and your core, so naturally when it came to the core exercise which was called: “bicycles” it killed me! Anything to do with my core always seems the toughest to pull off… ( for me anyway)
Most of Day 6 was about jumping, reaching high into the air and squating low to the ground. Very exhausting! I think though, by Day 6 I felt stronger again and the moves weren’t so hard to pull off.
Day 7 had a good set if different moves for the day, which I loved! I had to a number of high jumps, side plank leg raises and plank, with alternating arm raises. I think I found the arm raising the hardest this time as I felt I was more working with my legs and core so it was good to have a change and work with different parts of my body.
I felt by Day 8 the exercises had become more serious. I did a different type of squat, called the “sumo squat” where I had my hands behind my back and to use a prop to do the “mountain climbers”.
Day 9 was back to more jumping exercises which was exhausting but helpful for my energy levels. I then had to do a number of hip raises which I enjoyed after all those jumps!
The last day I felt I had accomplished something and most of the exercise involved the core. When it was all over I felt so good I wanted to do it all over again!
