Dunedin hairdresser Emma Rastrick has bravely decided to take
on World Fitness Centre's TribeFIT training programme with
the aim of getting in shape in just six
Week 1 Day 2: This time I made sure I was going to be
the first one to arrive for my workout to avoid
turning up late and embarrassing myself like on my first session, and I did! I was so
excited that I woke up at 2.30am!
Another hard core workout.
This time it was more difficult because I had quite a lot
of muscle soreness from Monday's session and I felt it straight
away...it was tough.
We started with skipping:
• 100 reps
• 150 reps
• 200 reps
Then we did the whole thing over again...my legs were
ruined and did the good old spaghetti leg shuffle a few
I'm still burning from Monday's torture session.
We did ‘ball-walls' which is where you squat down with the
ball come back up and throw it against the wall as
explosively as you can.
The medicine ball I was using was 3kgs.
After that we did box jumps and press-ups. I kept
collapsing doing face plants with my lack of upper body
strength. I felt like my muscles didn't want to work
anymore! By the end of the skipping, I couldn't
co-ordinate my legs and the rope together!
Apparently mind over matter, so I still have a long way to
go. As I said, this workout was tough but even more so
because of the fact that my muscles were so sore still from
Monday. At the end I was shagged, my legs were on
fire, my hair was a matted mess but at the end I felt great
again with my whole body buzzing with energy...
a crazy feeling.
The girls were great again with their encouragement and
it's something that I really enjoyed. I'm tired so
I'll wrap this post up and I eagerly await my next workout
See you guys in the
