Oh hi there! This week has been crazy busy. Work is mental right now and I am under loads of pressure to get things done, and get them done correctly. The time that I spend in the gym each day has become, once again, a god send! I am so lucky to have that time and facility at work.
Following on from my awesome start to the week on Monday, Janine and I decided to go into work early to get some cardio done and out of the way before work started.
30mins cardio elliptical trainer before work
Lunch time lifting
5mins treadmill warm up, incline
Wide grip BB bench press
Push ups (congrats to Janine for completing her first push ups on her toes! Go girl!)
Cable cross over
Side to side push ups
Ab work and planks
I was also lucky enough to be given this awesome pair of shoes from work last week. I have been rocking them all week. They just make every outfit suddenly look cool. Even when you are just wearing leggings and a baggy T shirt. And really, we all know how much I hate putting in effort with clothes :) Winning!
5mins rower warm up
Wide leg BB squat
One legged lunges, raised leg
BB step ups
Plie DB squat
Seated calf raises
Roughly 10mins additional cardio/HIIT at the end with lots of leg stretches
(for some reason at the end of this workout I was super hyperactive and needed some more! Hence, the quick HIIT after. Burpees, mountain climbers etc. It felt awesome!)
Now this is what I call relaxation. I treated myself to a bath when I got home. Ahhhhh.... I have never had as many baths before, than in the flat that we are in now. Something about the bath just makes me want to use it all the time. What a luxury!
7mins treadmill warm up
Cable bicep curl
Alternate hammer curl
Seated tricep press
Tricep push down
I feel so comfortable at the gym these days. Even when taking sneaky pics in the weights room like a girl haha.
After work Zwow #6
Funny, I managed to get this done today even though I washed my hair last night. I tend to wash my hair once per week, because I am lazy and I just have always hated washing my hair. So usually, when I wash and style my hair, I try to avoid doing heavy cardio for at least a few days afterwards. I don't want to ruin my hair with sweat right away.... BUT today was different and I didn't mind the sweat too much. Wow. Am I changing? Perhaps I am just SUPER MOTIVATED RIGHT NOW!
I completed 5 rounds and 6 pulse plyo jumps.
I am not sure how I managed to complete this so fast as my legs were burning sooo much from legs day! Even the jumps in the burpees almost made me cry.
Dinner was a massive and epic smoothie with frozen banana, soy milk, diet whey powder, peanut butter, cocoa powder and some agave nectar :) This has to be my favourite smoothie. What is yours?
