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 🙂
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 😀
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 😀
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 😀 😀
so with cardio circuit fun, Day 9 is done 🙂
