Day 360: Annoyed from Horsham

I am annoyed! In case that wasn’t obvious! My Body Pump class on Monday evenings was taken by an awesome teacher called Sarah, she also takes my Pilates class and has become my friend. That is until this week when I got a message from Sarah saying she had been sacked from her Monday night…… Continue reading Day 360: Annoyed from Horsham

Day 353: Return to the Monday Comfort Zone

Although it was not comfortable… not really… It involved Body Pump. As good as it is (mostly) Body Pump is not exactly what you would call comfortable…at lest not if you are doing it right! I am just about getting used to the new track, and I am just about remembering what weights I use…… Continue reading Day 353: Return to the Monday Comfort Zone

Day 332: A tiny bit of unfortunate squat planning

After the weekend, I woke up aching! For the first time in ages, I had achy abs, and arms, and legs… My guess is it is all the circuit training… and the core training… and yes…I am aware I am stating the obvious… Shhh…you and Mr Spock both! It is OK…I know what to do…… Continue reading Day 332: A tiny bit of unfortunate squat planning

Day 325: Today’s lesson – lunge weight is not appropriate for the shoulder track!

Squat challenge rest day…must be time for Body Pump! Because body pump contains no squats at all… oh hang on…that’s not right… Body pump has eve more squats in it than this blooming challenge…and I get to hold 25 kg on my back at the same time 😀 I was pleased, however that it was…… Continue reading Day 325: Today’s lesson – lunge weight is not appropriate for the shoulder track!

Day 311: Just another Manic Monday…

Well, not *that* manic but “just another fairly busy monday” would not scan, I can’t see the Bangles having a hit with that! Manic or not, it was definitely Monday, and this can only mean one thing… Body Pump! Because after running a 10k the previous day, more endurance training is exactly what my muscles needed… maybe……… Continue reading Day 311: Just another Manic Monday…

Day 297: Body Pump 89 Killer(s) bicep track

ok…I couldn’t help myself there sorry… terrible puns are the name of the game today! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the newest body pump release…the music for the bicep track is by The Killers 😀 it is also a killer track…but helped immensely by good music! all in all I like then…… Continue reading Day 297: Body Pump 89 Killer(s) bicep track

Day 291: Practise and Pumping

what better way to spend a monday evening than taking a good friend on a whistle stop tour of the local gym facilities? ok…I appreciate that sentence sounds sarcastic…but it wasn’t! I did enjoy myself 😀 we started off with a trip to Steyning (Matt’s gym) to practise for my assessment on sunday. Jen in…… Continue reading Day 291: Practise and Pumping

Day 284: 15kg down

Good morning 🙂 At body pump last night a couple of things happened… 1) I upped my weights on nearly every track and remembered that I should stagger it more… b) I piled up 3 5kg weights and then realised that this was the amount of weight I have lost so far… 15kg feels like…… Continue reading Day 284: 15kg down

Day 270: A body pump too far?

Well…not too far as such…but it was hard work! After the weekend’s escapades I was left with quite a lot of achiness…especially around the legs. I don’t know whether it was the DVD, the resistance training lessons or the run, or a combination of the lot, but I was definitely left with some form of residual…… Continue reading Day 270: A body pump too far?
