Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Day 10 of Project Energise, I finally made it back to the shed gym, on my own to restart my slightly forsaken strongperson training programme! I restarted the Stoltman programme that I started this time last year, because it is simple (but not easy!) and it really works! So I headed down to the (still…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Project 44: Day 28 working from home

Now, not only am I working out from home, as of yesterday I am also working from home… I am spending an awful lot of time at home! This is not a surprise however, we are on more or less lockdown after all! It does mean that I suddenly have far fewer opportunities to walk…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 28 working from home

Project 44: day 27 kettlebells and gym cats

Project 44 shed gym edition day 2… involved a kettlebell workout! I invested in some kettlebell workout cards with lots of different exercises to chose from and put together to make exciting new workouts!

Project 44: Day 21 legs in defiance of covid-19

In a change to the new normal, today was PT day… I have reverted to the long held habit of having PT on a Tuesday! It is only a temporary revert mind you… Today seemed to be legs again and some high reps, because Matt is mean! Ok no he isn’t he just knows me…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 21 legs in defiance of covid-19

Project 44: day 20 it’s a yoke!

Actually…it wasn’t a yoke, it was a sort of odd shaped squat bar with dangly down bits on each side but it was the closest I was going to get… Mind you, before I yoked, I farmers walked! Well…I suppose it was more like a frame carry really, but anyway…I walked up and down carrying…… Continue reading Project 44: day 20 it’s a yoke!

Project 44: day 19 dragging stuff about again…

Yes, you guessed it…more sled drags…slightly lighter today as I wanted to work on speed. So 1 run (there and back) at 135kg, 1 at 150kg and 2 at 160kg! I even got mark dragging sleds πŸ™‚ and he took a picture of me doing it…I am going to be “brave” and post the picture…… Continue reading Project 44: day 19 dragging stuff about again…

Project 44: day 17 Sam vs the viking press…

Once, long ago a valiant, sleepy warrior goddess challenged her greatest foe… Miraculously, despite her lack of sleep and general feeling of Friday morning… she won!! Ok I’ll stop taking about myself in the third person now and get on with it! That is a fairly accurate rendition of what happened though… I decided that…… Continue reading Project 44: day 17 Sam vs the viking press…

Project 44: Day 15 core…a rest day…

Not a total rest…obviously! I still went to the gym, otherwise project 44 would fail, and we can’t have that! However as my Monday, which was going to be lighter, turned into tabata and a HIIT circuit, I decided I would have a lighter day today. I also decided that if I am going to…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 15 core…a rest day…

Project 44: Day 13 Oops I did it again…

OK…this is not one of the better songs I have used as a reference…but the title occurred to me and the song got stuck in my head so I thought I’d share and there we are… Enough 90s music oh, no hang on this isn’t 90s music…this is 2003 music… eeek modern! What did I…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 13 Oops I did it again…

Project 44: Day 12 HIIT happens…

It is day 12 of gymming every day, and I decided it was about time I did some cardio… So we started with sled pushes/pulls and kettlebell squat supersets, then followed up with two HIIT circuits of 3 rounds of 30s of 3 exercises, the first was: Ski ERG/bosu burpees/trx rows The second was: Ski…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 12 HIIT happens…
