Today I was supposed to work out with my gym/work buddy Gemma (we trained together last week) but she texted me super early this morning saying that she wasn't feeling 100%. That sucks (more for her, than me) but I pushed on with the workout anyway and tried to imagine that she was there egging me on like last week.
I completed the same lower body circuit as quickly as possible. Man, I was DRENCHED in sweat. The boys in the gym even asked me at one point if I was OK . I mean, the last set of 20 squats was juuuuuust about my limit! Who would have thought that I would get knackered doing 20 squats with only 15 kgs? Yeah, I know right?!
Cardio Treadmill 20 mins:
1 min walking at 6.5, incline 2
1 min running at 8, 10, 12, 13, incline 2
Then complete two rounds of the below circuit. No rest. 20 reps of each exercise.
Squats (with 15kg barbell)
Lunges (with 6kg dumbbell)
Oblique sit ups (25 each side)
Barbell step ups (with 7kg)
Calf press on leg press machine (125kgs)
No breaks in between sets! Keep the intensity going and push through the reps
10min cardio intervals on the treadmill.
5mins jogging at 10, then tabata sprints at 14
I nailed them all this time! YES!
Then complete two rounds of the circuit (last week we only completed one more round due to time).
10 burpees just because.
Again, I burnt roughly 700Kcal before 8.30am.
In other great news, I have decided to start washing my hair TWICE a week. As most of you know from following my blog for a while, I HATE WASHING MY HAIR. It is pretty much the most traumatic day of the week as I have to wash, condition, blow dry and straighten etc. It is really annoying and I hate that I have to spend so much time mucking around with it. I also hate spending loads of time in the shower so all in all, it just doesn't make me happy. BUT – I am 30 now, and I need to start taking more care of my hair. I look after my skin as best as I can, but neglect my hair. Time for a change.
Let’s see how long I can go with this?! Bets on how long I last anyone?
Please don’t judge my on my dirty hair.
