PiYo Challenge COMPLETE

Well it took me almost 16 weeks to complete the 8 week program, but I can happily say I finished the whole PiYo Strength Program today.  The program is designed with 6 workouts per week and one rest day for 8 weeks, but I decided to do a hybrid and only pushed play 2 or 3 times a week…but I never gave up and feel fantastic now.

Back in November of last year I had shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff and couldn’t work out for several months.  Combine that with the lack of exercise, and sitting at my desk all day I developed very bad posture and crawled out of bed every morning with creaky bones and sore limbs.  It got so bad I ended up in the E.R. one night because my sciatica nerve was radiating down my leg so bad, I could barely walk.  Prior to that on an active day I could walk 10,000-12,000 steps per day and I was down to under 1,000….needless to say almost bed ridden.  I was able to get moving again with some physical therapy and finally when my shoulder started to heal I could lift light weights, and run, and then when the warm weather hit…start swimming.

But I was still struggling to get out of bed in the morning and knew I needed to increase my flexibility and keep the blood moving to all parts of my body.  My sciatica is non-existent and my lower back pain is GONE.  My hamstrings, hips, and glutes are all lose and flexible.  I can almost put my palms down flat on the ground when I bend over at the waist.  I started running again about 6 weeks ago and find I am less sore and my stride length is longer.

If you’re a runner, a walker, or anyone who experiences cronic pain, please stop the agony and contact me.  Beachbody stands behind all it’s products and offers a money back guarantee.  If you have tried everything else, and still am not getting relief – Order PiYo and try it for yourself.  You have nothing to lose but the pain.

I am starting another exercise program on Monday by the same creator – Chalene Johnson called ChaLEAN Extreme. I’m almost a year post surgery and feeling I can finally get back to lifting the heavy weights again.  I will still be running a few times a week until it gets too cold or snowy out, popping in a PiYo workout here and there for maintenance, and I expect to be flexible and pain free from here on out.
