We just finished week eleven and once again we’re down to about half the group. We started with 31 people, but just 15 made the weigh-in, with another two or three still involved, but missing. Of the 15-17 that were left, only 8 made the workout, and it was another tough one.
If you want to keep your body changing, you need to keep changing the workouts. By changing it up, your body never knows what to expect and it keeps trying to adapt to the new workload. Experts call it muscle confusion, but I think it’s good for your mind too, as it keeps you from getting bored with the routines.
The goal this time was to give them a Level IV workout with a bunch of new exercises so they’d have some new material to work with. We also squeezed in some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) by running to the cardio room and jumping on the cardio equipment between rounds.
BIGGEST LOSER “7' WEEK TEN — C.A.M.A. BIKE RALLY
Posted: June 12, 2009
This week, the challenge for the Biggest Losers was to participate in the 2009 C.A.M.A. Teen Bike Rally. Participants were to choose 7, 25, 40, or 70 miles. If the Biggest Losers weren’t able to get a bike, or had a conflict during the rally, they’re to make up at least the 7 or 25 miles on their own.
I know for sure that three of the BL crew tackled the rally. Linda Kerekguarto and Brittany Cline did the 7 mile ride and Nicole Richardson cranked out 40 miles. There might have been a couple others, but I can’t say for sure, since I didn’t see them. There were also three other gals from the center who all did the 40 miler: Susan Arp, Michelle Vaughn, and Michelle Hall. Great job girls!
As for the C.A.M.A. turn-out, it was a record setting 110 riders, up from the previous high of 80 riders two years ago. 17 riders took on the daunting 70 miler, while 25 riders chose the 7 mile fun ride, and 68 riders were split pretty evenly between the 25 and 40 mile ride.
