I finally had the talk with the trainer at my gym and explained what I wanted to achieve and by when. We chatted about my motivation and goals and how to monitor going forward. I was unsure as to whether to do weigh ins as they really make me quite despondant if I do not see any change, so he advised to do it by sight and feeling with my body (sounds sexy, lol). So anyway, with the goal set as to hold my mock posing session at the Gym in Mid May my trainer has written me a new workout and we have been through nutrition, and so the journey continues...
This session was thighs, shoulders and triceps.
Started with a 10 minute warm up on the bike and stretching - the most important part of any workout routine.
Under leg raises weighted - 20 reps x 3 sets (no rest)
Hipkicks weighted - 20 reps x 3 sets (no rest)
Single leg hip thrusts weighted - 20 reps x 3 sets (no rest)
by this time I am sweating like a beast, lol
- they were all done with ankle weights
Shoulder Press - 15kg x 20 reps x 3 sets (30 secs rest)
Bent over lat raises - 3kg x 20 reps x 3 sets (30 secs rest)
Upright row - 20kg x 20 reps x 3 sets (30 secs rest)
so I was sick during the shoulder press big deal
teach me to eat egg before the gym! My shoulders are my weakest part so really struggled with the press.
Tricep dips - 20 reps x 4 sets (30 secs rest)
Tricep pressdowns - 12.5kg x 20 reps x 3 sets (30 secs rest)
and after these too I could not even touch my head which had us all laughing including my trainer! lol
To cool down I did 5 mins on the cross trainer although this caned my arms! lol
Well what a workout, brilliant fun and looking forward to doing the next ones next week. I would never have thought I could feel so knackered after doing a workout like that! Amazing, the lack of rest between sets is unbelievable!!!
Here I come
