I tell you it is great to be off on holiday, I finally have the time to post new workouts more regularly, or at least for the next couple of weeks until I’m back at work.
I don’t know if I’m being paranoid or not, but when I was watching this video back, I think I look like I’ve put on some size again!! Unfortunately I have been treating myself the last few days, so maybe my glycogen stores have just refilled or something, but all the same, I will need to get back on track with the diet. I have got into a few bad eating habits now when I’m in work, with regards to chocolate. While I’m off I plan to knock that habit on the head and go back with a stronger attitude and will to say “no thanks” or “stop staring at me Milk Tray”.
So, I will be including more cardio/bodyweight workouts and abdominal training along with my usual Kettlebell stuff, to help me achieve my goals. I feel like I’ve undone all the progress I reported last week now But I’m probably just having a “flumpy day”.
Back to business now, with today’s workout. I have been asked by GrapeWine to include more bodyweight/cardio and I was totally up for this today. This workout lasted 18 minutes. It has 3 rounds of 6 exercises. I set my Gymboss Interval Timer for 18 cycles of 15 seconds rest and 45 seconds MAX effort. If you don’t have an interval timer, you could set so many reps per exercise and try and complete as many rounds in a set time or, just do 3 rounds with the set reps, but always try and challenge yourself.
The exercises and my reps per round are as follows:
- Alternating Reverse Lunges (26, 23, 27)
- Dive-Bombers (9, 10, 8 )
- Skater Jumps (28, 22, 19)
- Plank Climbers (changing lead arm each rep) (18, 20, 14)
- Lunge Jumps (26, 21, 18)
- Power Jumping Jacks (16, 12, 12)
In hindsight, I would not put the lunge jumps and Power Jacks beside each other as these are both explosive exercises and also work the mostly the same muscles, so this sequence is a killer. But the Power Jacks are a really great exercise for the outer sweep of the quads, for those shapely legs we’re all after 😉 Hope you all enjoy this workout.
Tomorrow is the Belfast Marathon and I am participating in a relay, so I will let you know how I get on. I am not looking forward to running on the road again, because last time I injured my achilles tendon, so I don’t hold high hopes for tomorrow. Will try and get some footage though of my attempt lol
Bye for now everyone
