Trying Out a 26 Day Hourglass Workout Program (Final Update – Days 22 to 26)

Hard to believe this is the final update for the hourglass program. I’m going to be honest, it feels as if the program was so much shorter than 26 days, but I also have difficulty telling how much time has passed (and social distancing has not helped that).

I really loved doing this program, so I’m going to be starting Chloe Ting’s Flat Tummy Challenge with some friends. I won’t be doing weekly updates for that on my blog like I did with this challenge, but I will be doing daily updates on my Twitter. I may do a post on it after the challenge is over though.

Anyways, on to the final week of this program (+ my final results)!

I took today as an unscheduled rest day because I accidentally hit my heat the day before (while doing something unrelated). I don’t want to over exert myself, so I’ll get back into the schedule tomorrow.

Final thoughts & measurements

Final Measurements

Waist24″
High Hip32″
Hip34.5″
Thigh20.25″
WHR0.7

Surprisingly, my final measurements are almost the exact same as my starting measurements. I think it’s because at first I burned off some fat, making my measurements go down, then it was replaced with muscle, making my measurements go back up slightly.

Overall, my body shape looks pretty similar, but my legs and abs look a lot more toned now, which I’m happy with! I’m also noticeably stronger.

Final Thoughts

Though my measurements didn’t change a ton throughout the program, my strength, endurance, and balance have definitely improved! I’ve also seen more muscle definition in my abs (some slight ’11 lines’, as well as what is possibly the start of a two-pack). I don’t think my hips or glutes changed all that much, but my hip dips are looking less pronounced, and my thighs are feeling quite strong.

I’m looking forward to trying out more of Chloe’s exercise videos, and I’m also going to try doing some glute and leg exercises with resistance bands, to see if that helps me shape up a bit more.

If you’re interested in trying Chloe Ting’s 26 Day Hourglass Program, then I highly recommend it! It improved my fitness levels so much (this is probably the best shape I’ve been in my entire life).
