How much are you all enjoying this stunning weather?!?
I’ve actually walked the 3 miles to work the past couple of days because it’s just so beautiful out there. My route to work is is simply gorgeous and I’m definitely going to do it more often whilst it stays nice…
I’m working a half day tomorrow so my plan is to take my bikini & towel to work with me and hit up the beach when I finish to soak up some vitamin D! I’ll also be doing the same after my physiotherapy session on Friday. I just LOVE living right on the beach ❤
I missed recording my last training session as I’ve been so busy and then by the time the evening rolls around, I’m knackered and barely have the energy to eat and then fall into bed.
So here is tonight’s session as well as my last session…
2nd June – Lower Body Training
This was a fasted session and it was pretty freakin’ awesome!
20 minute walk to gym
5-10 minutes foam rolling – quads, piriformis, calves
Dynamic hip flexor stretches – 12 each side
Hip opening exercises – 8 each side
Shoulder dislocations – 3×10
Third world squats
Third world squat to stand
Leg swings – forward/sidewards
I’ve also started doing a new dynamic hip opening routine which is hard to put into words but I will get a recording of it over the weekend.
20kg x5 – with a 3 second pause in the hole
Awesome squat session! I felt really strong and powerful and I felt my glutes firing with every rep. We have one more session at 90% before we recalculate our 1RM and deload to 70%.
Stiff Leg Deadlifts:
After my last session, I said I was going to drop the weight a little and work on form as I was not pulling the glutes through at the top of the movement. Much improved this week!
Loved my leg press this week though they were still tough. I’m determined to get the full 8 reps on my first set next time.
Lying Leg Curls:
Standing Calf Raise:
I could barely stand after these – and I love it!
Seated Calf Raise:
Upper Body Training – 5th June 2013
Shoulder dislocations – 2 x 10 (Had to stop after two sets as it was aggravating my shoulder/neck)
Eccentric Dumbbell Flyes:
My shoulder was really giving me some grief tonight so I only did two sets. It’s getting extremely depressing now 😦
15 second rest pause. It was hot in the gym tonight and my legs/glutes were feeling heavy due to walking to work and then standing on my feet all day in work. But I was never in danger of not making reps.
Next session I’ll deload and do some speed deads before increasing the weight up the following session to 120kg.
Seated Row – Wide Grip
Tricep Pushdowns – Rope Attachment:
Arms were suitable fried though I do not feel I’m working as hard since I took out benching. I know it’s for my own good so I’ll stick with it for now but it’s driving me slightly potty!
A little flex shot from tonight’s session – I really think it’s noticeable that my upper body is leaning out 🙂
