Well again, it's been a long time! I hope you haven't missed me too much ;-) The snow has pretty much gone here, we're just left with ice. I'm really missing running outside.. I had a bit of a running break but now I'm wanting to get back to it.. It's not looking good even if the ice melts as the snow is coming back with a vengeance on Thursday, according to the weather men anyway...
So with the weather as it is, and with boxing out of the question for the time being we've done some stuff at home.. I can't even remember when we did this one I just remember writing it down 'cause it was tough! First you do all the exercises for 60 seconds, then 45, then 30 and finally 15. It only takes 10 minutes so it's fantastic if you're in a rush but still want to fit something in.. You can alter the exercises too, if you like.
60s/45s/30s/15s pull-up hold
60s/45s/30s/15s shadow boxing
We also went to the gym on Sunday... I was craving the treadmill!!! We went as guests to my mum and dad's gym and got quite a lot done. I'm still feeling it today, ouch!! I wouldn't get my moneys worth out of a gym membership 'cause we do most of our training at boxing or running or at home but I really love going once in a while!
5k on the treadmill, incline 3.5. I don't know how long it took me as I kept hitting the emergency stop doh :-( I probably ran more than 5k but I'm not sure...
Assisted pull-ups with 6kg assist. About 25 reps. Did one set of 8 but most were about 5 reps.
Weighted side bends 22.5kg - 10 each side
Weighted Russian twists 20kg - 20
Clean and push press 15kg 5 each arm
Wrist curls 10kg 50 reps
Bench press with olympic barbell x 8 reps
400m row - can't remember how long it took.
I enjoyed going to the gym, I even kind of enjoyed the treadmill as it's been so long since I've run!
I'm going to keep it a quicky of a post today. I've been mega busy at work and getting ready for christmas so I don't really have anything exciting to tell you all!! I have had my hair chopped off... pictures to come soon if I can take one without grimacing!!
p.s. don't forget to enter my CSN voucher giveaway if you haven't already done so it closes tomorrow and I'll aim to announce the winner by Thursday :-)
