EA Sports Active 2 UPDATE

This morning I started the second phase of the nine week training on EA Sports Active 2.  

I didn’t have the motivation as we got up early yesterday morning for some time on the lake fishing and such.   I was overtired yesterday evening and when I woke up this morning I felt as though I needed more sleep…

But duty calls as I have to homeschool the kids and we have a visit at a fire station at 1pm.

So when my husband left for his contract downtown, I went in the basement and started my training session.

The first thing I have realized is that the number of reps were higher.   Before I was doing jump for 65 times now it is 80….  Should I mentioned I had to stop a couple of times?   I think my whole body was still sleeping.    This morning my training was mostly based on basketball which I enjoyed but there was also running as well as muscle toning.    The reps for muscle toning also went up a inch from 10 to 12.    The only bug I have found so far is that when doing some of the muscle toning exercises, my training mentions the bands when I have selected the weight.   Personally I prefer the weight that’s why I chose those instead of the elastic bands.   But the programming doesn’t seem to register this and the talking still mentions the elastic bands…   No big deal I guess.

The only exercise I had trouble doing was the bend arm side plank holding for 20 seconds.   Somehow it is always put before the cool down and by then my energy level is majorly depleted.   So every once in a while I can do it but today I just couldn’t perform what was asked.   

So far I have not registered weight loss but I know that my muscles are tone, that pants are slightly bigger at the waist and that I can run to catch up on my kids.     I only started tracking the food last week so I am not expecting to see results right away.  

I will continue to update on my journey with EA Sports Active in the next couple of weeks.     Phase two has started and it will take about three weeks to complete it.

EA Sports Active 2 is available at your favourite store, even It is available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Wii.
