I have a confession to make.
I purchased this GymBoss interval timer almost 3 months ago– thinking it would motivate me to do some BodyRock workouts– and never even opened it.
It certainly wouldn’t be the first time I purchased some new fitness gadget, hoping for some magical burst of motivation, only to let it sit and collect dust.
But today, I finally decided to break-in my new interval timer!
And, boy, am I glad I did.
The GymBoss is incredibly easy to use– you can set it to practically any interval timing you’d like with the press of a button or two. To get acclimated to my new gadget, I set it to two intervals of one minute each, and had it repeat 10 times for a total of 20 minutes.
Then I jumped onto my rebounder and got to work!
Mini Trampoline Interval Workout:
1st minute: Steady bouncing
2nd minute: Running in place, with high knees facing forward
3rd minute: Steady bouncing
4th minute: Running in place, with high knees turned out
Repeat the whole set 5 times for a total of 20 minutes
The GymBoss made my workout fly by– I was able to watch my morning TV shows without watching the clock! (the timer beeps every time it’s time to change intervals, so you don’t have to think about it) Before I knew it, I was sweating up a storm! I’ve never had such an effective workout on my rebounder. (Typically, I’d just bounce around on it with no rhyme or reason.)
In fact, I can already feel my leg muscles getting stronger, and find myself looking forward to doing it again tomorrow!
The best part of this workout?
The sore throat I’ve been suffering from since last Monday (a side effect of my Candida cleanse) disappeared immediately after my interval session! Rebounding is supposed to be an effective way to release toxins through lymph fluid, so something must have been shaken loose this morning!
Whatever it was, I’m grateful it’s gone.
I was really starting to fear I’d have a sore throat for the rest of my life! Or at least for the remainder of my cleanse. Symptoms like that are EXACTLY the reason why I’m including a bit of sugar– like my beloved dark chocolate— into my program. I can’t even imagine the extent of my detox symptoms if I had eliminated any more sugar! Eek!
It’s also nice to feel like I’ve been making some progress in even the short time I’ve been following this program. The fact that I experienced detox symptoms proves that I do, in fact, have some Candida overgrowth– and the fact that I’ve stuck-it-out and seen improvement is just the burst of motivation I need to keep going.
All I know is, I’ve found my new favorite workout.
