Week 3 Day 9: I'm half way there! I've just completed 3
weeks of one of the most full-on fitness programmes and I feel
awesome, especially compared to Wednesday's session where I
came down on myself a little too hard...(that sucked).
What an awesome day today was!
Not only did I finish but I wasn't the last to
finish!! It was an amazing feeling.
Wednesday's session was a bit of a kick in the teeth but I
got through today bursting with pride!
We began with the usual warm-up but to be honest, it's not so
much a "warm up" but more of a pre-workout or mini-workout)
I think that the average person (a person like me) would
consider the warm-up an actual workout in and of itself.
Below is a glimpse at the warm-up and the rest of the day's
workout (yes, we do all that in 40 minutes!)
Here's a breakdown of today's session:
I alternate the following exercises:
1 clean press (with the heaviest weight you can possibly
lift) 1 chin up
2 clean presses followed by 2 chin ups
3 clean presses (here I've dropped the weight down a little)
followed by 3 chin ups
4 clean presses followed by 4 chin ups
I continue these all the way up to 10 as fast as I can.
In my clean and press I got myself in the lip with the
weight, youch!! Luckily, I didn't get a fat lip which would
have made for another great battle wound to show to your
I continue these as fast as I can all the way up to 10
Below: A quick post-workout talk about the week that was
(including me admitting to Phil that I felt like chucking in
Today was hard but I had help from the awesome Phil who
doesn't give me a break for a second! I've noticed that I
like the pushing it helps me get through the workout. I know
I would probably quit otherwise.
Phil is always encouraging me to keep moving, keep pushing.
Hit the reset, count to 5 and keep going.
It was so amazing to look on the whiteboard today and see my
name not last! What a buzz!
