Rocktober Workout Weeks 3 & 4
October 28, 2013
Today is my final workout of the Rocktober challenge. Week 4 started for me last Tuesday and I finished my 3rd workout of week 4 today. The exercises for this past week of the challenge were tough. Especially the push up jacks and the side plank with the hip dip and leg pull in.
I am also including my week 3 in this post as I was unable to blog about it last week. I had my parents visiting and my kids were also out of school for a few extra days for a little fall break. Life seems to get in the way of blogging sometimes for me. Week 3 was also challenging and I really enjoyed some of the exercises from that week.
Below are the photos from weeks 3 and 4. I did not have time to do collages for week 4 so I have just included some single photos of some of the exercises from that week.
I really enjoyed being a part of this challenge group on the Betty Rocker group page through facebook. Lots of great and interesting people who participated in this challenge from all over the world. The workouts were something different from my normal dvd’s and books I use. I also really have noticed more definition in my arms, abs and back after completing this 4 week challenge. I was also working out with my Cathe Friedrich dvd’s on the days I was not using the Rocktober workouts and doing yoga on the weekend. I try and workout 6 to 7 days per week for 25 to 45 minutes per workout – depending on my time available and the workout I have planned. I believe the key to success with any workout program is your commitment and then planning a time and place to do the workout and following through. The end results are worth the time you invest – not just to be physically more fit but to have better overall health, more energy, and confidence.
Now that Rocktober is over I will be continuing the use of my Cathe dvd’s and doing a little more yoga. I will keep you updated on my future workouts. I am also planning to review a new yoga book I have been using for a few weeks now.

Week 1 of Rocktober Challenge
October 3, 2013
I have completed 3 days of the Betty Rocker, Rocktober challenge this week. Let me tell you it is tough. The exercises don’t look too hard but they are a challenge when you have to do them for 1 minute each. There are 7 different exercises that she emails you at the beginning of the week and you are to do them at least 3 times in one week – 3 rounds of each set of exercises, for one minute each. A video showing the exercises was also sent with the email. Below are some of the photos of me doing some of the exercises in the challenge.
In addition to doing the Rocktober the last 3 days I have also been keeping up with my last week of my Focus T25 challenge group. It has been tough doing both workouts in one day and my inner thighs are killing me the past two days but I didn’t want to quit my other challenge when this is the last week. I will be posting my weekly T25 post at the end of the week and give you my overall feedback on the workout program. I will post again next week on Rocktober after doing the new grouping of exercises I receive from Betty Rocker the beginning of the week.
I hope everyone is having a good week!
