Thursday – Day 4

Short post today as busy busy with clients.

Exercise today has been:-

Workout 1 – treadmill x 20 minutes same as yesterday

Ab workout – only 12 minutes long. It is my belief that you don’t need to be doing hundreds of crunches in order to attain a washboard stomach. Good diet, no fat in the stomach area and a reasonable amount of exercise will help you achieve your goals. Think quality not quantity when doing ab exercises. The important thing is to keep good form throughout the exercise i.e holding the tummy in, not to pound away doing hundreds of crunches and only getting the form right for a few of them. My ab workout this morning looked like this:-

  1. Leg lift, V crunch, bum lift – 20 reps
  2. 1/2 bridge lift, toe crunch – 10 reps each leg
  3. Side plank lift – 10 reps each side
  4. Plank – 1 minute
  5. Boats x 5 holding for 5 breaths each
  6. Boats lowing down to floor and coming back to boat x 10

Workout 2 – ashtanga yoga practice to end of standing sequence.

Food today has been:-

Orange, grapefruit, celery and banana smoothie

6 medjool dates

1 apple

1 bar conscious orange chocolate

Cauliflower ‘couscous’ – cauliflower, tomatoes, olives, courgettes, red onion, wild garlic and seasoning.

1/2 pineapple and 1 kiwi

How I feel today:-

Legs are a lot less achy which is really good. Feeling a bit tired but then today is proving to be a hectic day. Roll on this evening and bed……..

Thanks for reading, more tomorrow………………….
