EA Sports Day 5

I tried a high intensity work out today. I believe I may have been pusing a bit too hard in it. I finally had to skip exercises. They had these jumping squats which were rather intense, but then they followed it up with something that seemed downright dangerous–the jumping lunge.
In the jumping lunge you put a foot in front of you and kneel forward, your front leg is making a nice right angle with the floor and your rear shin is nearly parallel to the floor. Your front foot is flat and the rear foot is on the ball of the foot. Fine, just a normal lunge, right? Then you are supposed to jump into air from this position, switch your legs and land with the other foot forward, completing a crouch back into the original lunge position. Only now your legs are opposite they way you started. Oh and do it slowly to help work the muscles.
Yeah, I don’t know how to land that slowly, or even safely. I tried like four of them and felt like my leg muscles were going to end up getting ripped off of my bones. Not to mention the game was complaining that I was doing it too fast, even when I waited for the little animated guy before doing it, apparently I needed to control my landing and do it slower. No idea how that’s supposed to work.
So I skipped the jumping lunges, and am going to go back down to a medium intensity workout next time.
Other than that, I’m still really enjoying doing the workouts. I really hope this continues. 🙂
Oh and I’m now wondering if anyone at EA actually tried wearing the strap and completing a workout. I cannot understand how it can stay on for anybody at this point, I have it fall off 3 or 4 times a session.
