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.

Another New Paddington Day

woohoo New PB 😀 And…not a deadlift one this time!! My deadlifts have pleataeued, which is annoying but not surprising considering the amount of lower body injuries I gained at the beginning / middle of 2016!

So…it is Tuesday, and it is still personal training day 😀 It is still dark when I arrive at the gym, although I (like to) think that jabs getting lighter!

Day 256: The thing that is important when doing handstands…is not to be laughing at all!

Pyramid sets, negative sets, pre-fatigue are all terms that featured in Tuesdays personal training sessions.  They sound scary…but they are not really…honest… When I arrived I was surprisingly awake and alert for a morning, especially a Tuesday morning…and I was still mostly just happy not to feel ill! I was also surprised I wasn’t aching…… Continue reading Day 256: The thing that is important when doing handstands…is not to be laughing at all!
