So as this is part 3 of a series on losing weight and gaining more energy every day, I must say, this one was difficult for me. This is the 3rd and final blog this one focusing on extreme workouts. The first was beginner workouts and the 2nd was moderate workouts. Working out for the people looking for some spice in their lives might be doing extreme excercises. Wether your an athlete or a hobbyist, extreme excercising should be about something you love to do. I am not a triathalon athlete, and not a daredevil, never skydived, bungee jumped, extreme rock climbed, gone wakeboarding , I’ve done nothing too crazy. Except the other day, I found a way to mix something I love, into extreme workouts.Austin and I went to a place in the San Bernardino, Ca Forest to a series of waterfalls called Bonita Falls, located in the town of Lytle Creek.
Weve been to Lytle Creek many times, and the times before this a park ranger told us about the 70 foot waterfalls, so we planned to take a trip back up there soon. We went up there last Saturday, and what an experience that was!
You start out crossing this small creek, barely up to your ankles, then there is about 10-15 mintues of flat rock crossing, and you just follow the water into this stretch of the mountains. So on the left all the sudden there is this little trail going up. You climb that (Its difficult but not too much) and the trail lasts about another 7-10 minutes. it ends up right in front of a waterfall. This waterfall is about 70 feet high. The mist of the falling water cools you down after that tough climb.
Heres some pictures of the intensity of it. =)
The trail ends next to the pool of water the waterfall falls into. It is surprisngly only like 3-4 feet deep , but the water was too cold to go in( Not until summer). You can touch the waterfall! So crazy. Then there is this huge slab of rock my boyfriend wanted to climb up, so up we went. The view was breathtaking, and that set us about halfway up the waterfall, but not able to touch it anymore. The day after, my legs were so sore. It was worth the climb, and I felt better after a couple days of recovery. I consider this extreme excercising, because we drove 30 minutes to get there, and took another 30 to hike there, and it was no easy hike! Extreme Excercising has to be done carefully, and make sure it is something you love to do. Being in nature I would say is the most popular way to extremely workout. You feel part of the earth when your out there, it relieves stress and improves your bodys functions. Some people do exercise everyday, but I know it is hard. So at least try to extremely excercise once a month to start! You will feel better in no time!
