I recently finished up Beachbody’s 22-Minute Hard Corps program. Although I didn’t have the foresight to write down my thoughts before starting, I did have some insights to share at the halfway mark and finish line that I wanted to share with you. I’m hoping that my 22-Minute Hard Corps review will help you decide if this workout program is right for you.
Week 4 — The Half-Way Mark
I was anxious to get to this point as I could already feel the difference in how I felt, and my wife said she could already see a physical difference. I was most excited about the half-way PT test that would measure my improvements in terms of number of reps I could do of various basic exercises (push-ups, pull-ups, etc.).
The PT test was done on Sunday – typically a “rest day” for the 22-Minute Hard Corps program. I’m noticing this a lot with Beachbody programs – Sunday is often a rest day and designated for meal prep. At first I didn’t like this, as I have more time to work out on weekends than I do during the week, so not working out on a Sunday seemed like a waste to me. I’ve adapted, though, and quickly learned to appreciate those Sundays off from jumping out of bed and hitting the exercise mat.
So when Sunday came, and I was like a kid on Christmas. My wife has been helping with the PT tests by running the stopwatch for me, and I think I was dangerously close to driving her nuts. I was anxious to see my progress.
