Reboot day 9: Personal training…with battleropes

Battleropes, and kettlebells, and core bags and bench presses and everything!!

So…it is Tuesday, which is PT day, and last week I mentioned that I had told Matt that I needed to do more cardio training. He has taken this on board which is a shame…

OK…not it isn’t a shame, I really do need to do more cardio training and HIIT style workouts and suchlike so it is good.

I was super tired this morning, I was getting ready and I thought I might just fall over, and then I thought my sports bra was making me feel sick…I think these things were just excuses… I got on with it, went to the gym and ended up having an awesome training session ๐Ÿ™‚

We started off with lifting because I am not abandoning it in favour of cardio altogether!!! Also I think Matt thinks that if we do something fun that I like first I’ll not whinge so much when I have to do sets of 15 cardio things later ๐Ÿ˜€

He is right…although I still give him a look when I have to do anything over 10 reps… you know just because I can ๐Ÿ˜€

so, this morning’s workout consisted of:

2 x 5 @20kg warm up
5 x 5 @30kg working

A circuit which started with 2 exercises on the first time through then added an extra exercise every time for 4 times through the circuit. Starting with:

15 x battlerope slams
15 x kettlebell swings (16kg)
2nd time add 10 x squat to OH press 8kg
3rd time add 10 x core bag clean and press 10kg
4th time add 10 x lateral step ups 8kg (per leg)

This lot is officially a lot harder than it sounds!

I am officially still obsessed with my Grrrl Clothing supershero leggings… not sure they made the exercises easier…they certainly helped with the superhero/warrior goddess feeling though ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I loves those leggings ๐Ÿ™‚ You are looking super warrior goddess here – I can almost hear you roaring! Also, your bum looks really good.
    Your sports bra might have been making you sick. I once had a sausage that tried to kill me. We have to keep an eye on such things ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜ I am quite proud of my bum!
      Rogue sports bras and sausage must be monitored! It was a very tight sports bra…I nearly got stuck in it after the workout… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      1. It is a fine warrior goddess bum!!
        Blimey, that bra meant business. Give it a good talking to – if you give these things an inch, they take a mile,,, (sound like my old primary school teacher now!)

      2. Yeay!! I have a warrior goddess bum!!
        I will most certainly give the new a good talking to…and leave it to think about what it had done for a while!!


      1. No… I think we should keep some clothing… just not the homicidal kind…
        there had better not be any trouser nonsense around here!


  2. I’m out of reply buttons, so–oh, when did that ever shut me up? Keeping in mind that I’m now 70, I’m not so sure about banning all clothing. It’s not that I’m shy–or, god forbid, modest–but I hate it when I scare the neighbors.

  3. I have to agree with everything that Lucy and Ellen have said. And now I’m going to leave my comment before I start wondering how a sausage can nearly kill you in a way that can be compared to a murderous sports bra.

  4. It is not just sports bras, my normal bra tried to stab me last week. Violent.

    I am so proud of you for being back, you are an inspiration! I’m having serious issues right now but you might just help me get off my bum and do something. Having said that, my leg is insanely swollen (resurgence of cellulitis) and my hands/wrists are f**ked (something to do with nerves) and I’m not allowed to swim (more cellulitis shenanigans) so I need extra inspiration… no pressure!

    1. Bras in general are very untrustworthy!!
      We should keep an eye on them!!

      Oh dear!! That sounds like a run of very bad luck ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      I shall try my very best to be inspiring… or at least exercise-y with haphazard stories…

      I can also provide Doctor Who and Buffy Gifs which are very inspirational…


      1. Bad bras!

        It’s not great and it’s making me cranky ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Yey, be inspiring with inspiring gifs, Buffy FTW!! Also superhero ones and Charmed… just to put that in your mind ๐Ÿ™‚
