This week I have eased back onto the fitness train with an awesome cardio, strength and muscle-building routine with my friend Beinsy. A friend of hers designed the routine, and she used it when she was in fitness competitions. We do 3 sets of 3 different exercises. We repeat these three exercises (20 reps of each) 4 times. I’m sure there is a much better and less complicated way to say that, but alas, I am me and that’s just how I say it 😉
Today’s morning workout was hard on the lower back, but other than that I feel much stronger than I did when I started on Monday.
We did the workout Monday, Wednesday and this morning. Week 2 will be amazing. I start kick-boxing again, so I am sure that will also help.
I’ve honestly missed some good old weight training in my workouts. I think that I often forget the value of adding these into my workouts.
I will soon be training for the Sporting Life 10k and need to get the running training in there too somewhere. For me, balance will be key. I’m not sure how I’m going to fit it all in, but I need to make sure that I at least try!
Are there any favourite circuit/weight training routines that you use? What do you find the most effective in your training?
Always looking for some great advice and tip sharing!For now I will settle into this new routine of being a true ‘gym-rat’!Happy training!-Bexx
