Well, it went great in some parts, and not so well in other parts.
My strengths: PUSH UPS
I have worked on them for a long time. I have been focusing alot lately on going much, much deeper in them, and keeping perfect form, on my toes. No girl push ups for me. They are GOOD.
My weaknesses: PULL UPS
Now, at the end of Phase 2, before the Recovery Week, I could do 4 unassisted pull ups (close grip underhand). Today I could only do 2! I'm hoping that by the end of this week, I'll be back up to 4 and hopefully more!
Another strength: ABDOMINAL AREA
This is just not about vanity. Yes, my abs look good, (I'm not trying to be conceited, but visually, they are good..they could be better, I think.), but I noticed that my core strength has improved dramatically during Ab-Ripper, which is more important to me. To put it lightly: I KILLED it.
So in closing, I think there are alot of hills and valleys in this program. BUT, I think in the end, it all comes together to be as healthy and strong as you can be.
Another tip of advice: If it were up to me, I would AXE the Lean program. I think women all too quickly go to it, because they don't want to "bulk up." It simply won't happen because you don't have tons of testosterone in your body, like a typical man does. If you can pass the fit test in the program-do Classic. I have been pushing as much weight as possible in every workout in Classic..and I don't look like a body builder.
