The plan: HIIT, short and snappy, your gonna love this! Today, three different sets of HIIT only 6 minutes each. For each set complete 6 rounds of the two exercises, 25 seconds per exercise with 5 seconds to get ready for the next (plenty of time!). All you need is a timer, kettle bell or sandbag, and a skipping rope!
High knees skipping
Single leg push ups, alternating legs
Side plank hip raises, alternating sides
Single leg dead lifts, each round alternate the leg so you get a total of 3 rounds per leg
The plan: Today we are back on the HIIT! 18 minutes at the highest height of intensity! Set your timers/watches/clock or sun to 10 seconds rest 50 work for 18 rounds and complete 3 rounds of the following 6 exercises… try it… it’s fun!
Medicine ball jump lunges
High knees skipping
Squat and dumbbell, kettle bell, barbell, any bell press
Interesting discussion last night at pottery: quitting the smokes! sensitive topic. We all know smoking is bad, and I mean super-bad. Might try quitting, but after a pint or two, a cheeky smoke is so tempting… So how can we quit for good?
I don’t have the answer.
Wouldn’t even pretend to. But what came up time and time again last night, was needing to not only genuinely want to stop, but to be in the right mind space. Subtle difference, I know, but crucial? The mind is awesome powerful…
Speaking of pottery, here are a few small porcelain dessert dishes I made. Ice-cream anyone?
The plan: 4 rounds of the following exercises, every perfect rep counts!:
It’s Friday. A time to kick back, grab a drink, and let the weekend roll!
The plan: HIIT, you know I missed you. I am not just about sprints these days! 15 minutes consisting of 3 rounds of the following 5 exercises (perform each exercise for 50 seconds, then give yourself 10 seconds to, erm, nearly recover):
90 degree medicine ball touch (lie on your back, feet off the ground, shank parallel to the ground and balance your med ball/sandbag/something weighty on top. Lift your shoulders off the ground and reach forward to touch it and back down. Repeat).
