Get Lean Beginner Program Recap
I just finished the Get Lean Beginner Program. Thirty days - 2 runs, 30-min workout x1, 45-minute x1 and 15-min yoga per week. According to the app, I completed 65% of the workouts. I call BS though. I have a non-conventional work week meaning the days I work changes from week to week. The problem with the app is that the workout days are a little bit too rigid. For the Get Lean program, I had to switch some days around but the program thinks I skipped those days. It's great for those who keep strict schedules, not so great for me.
Overall, I think this was a great beginner workout program. After 30 days, I can actually run on a treadmill instead of just walk. Combined with a healthier diet, I also lost about 6 pounds. For the next 30 days, I am still undecided on which workout program to try next. Whatever it is, I hope it works with my schedule.
PS - The last week of the program was completed while on vacation in Puerto Rico while also enjoying rich Puerto Rican fare. Still lost 6 lbs at the end. Like I said, not bad for a beginner program.
