Monday – Day 8 and weekend update

Day 8 today and another busy day with clients so this post will be short and sweet.

Exercise over the weekend looked like this:-

Saturday – day 6

Yoga practice to end of standing sequence and some hip openers – about 30 minutes

Sunday – day 7

Active rest day – bike ride approx 7 miles

Today’s exercise has been :-

Workout 1 – treadmill x 30 minutes. 5 minutes warmup followed by 1min/2min intervals – 1 min fast running/2 mins jogging to recover

Workout 2 – with client. Normally I wouldn’t work out with a client but this is someone I have been training for some time so she knows what she is doing and it provides her with extra motivation to workout with me – i.e she likes to see me suffering too!!!

We did – interval training 30 secs work/10 secs rest x 3 rounds

  1. Squats with shoulder press – left arm
  2. Squats with shoulder press – right arm
  3. Wide leg burpees
  4. One leg bridge lift – left leg
  5. One leg bridge lift – right leg
  6. Plie squat jumps
  7. High knees and get ups
  8. Press ups
  9. Plank

Then we did an upper body workout – 15 reps of each exercise

  1. Upright rows
  2. Lateral raises
  3. Rotator cuff
  4. Reverse curl
  5. Pec dec
  6. Tricep extension
  7. Bicep curl

Then we did an ab workout – 10 reps of each exercise

  1. Leg raise, v crunch, bum lift
  2. Side plank crunch
  3. Boats x 5

We finished with plenty of stretching.

Food today has been/will be:-

Green smoothie – oranges, grapefruit, celery, spinach and banana

2 x apples

6 medjool dates

Large salad with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, sprouts, salmon, beetroot, cucumber and olive oil dressing

1/2 pineapple, kiwis, strawberries.

I was asked to explain in more details what each of the exercises are that I have been doing in my workouts. I haven’t the time to go through them all today but I will certainly post more detail tomorrow.

Thanks for reading…….
