Things are going great guns, I'm, doing 1 hour cardio most mornings and training in the evenings. This is making the fat come off and so far in 4 weeks I've lost 3 kgs and have still managed to fit in some cheats (3-4 protien bars and some small snack bags of yummy fruti and nuts). I've been slack at posting cause work is killer at the moment. By training partner B is great fun and training with her during the week is great motivation cause I know someone is waiting for me so I gotta turn up and I have to be switched on cause we are doing the programms I have created.
Here's part of an email I sent her this morning which explains my trainig yesterday - hopfully if I keep doing things like this I'll shock my body and will be better than ever!
"Yesterday the gym was super quite when I did my cardio. Got there round 7.20am. I'd been reading about HIIT on spin bikes so thought I'd give it a go, warmed up for 5 mins and got stuck in:
Gear 10 for 1min,
gear 18 for 30secs,
Gear 10 for 1min,
gear 18 for 30secs.... and so on for 30mins then steady at level 12 for 30mins. I was sooooo sweaty and shattered, did some abs and went home for breakfast, I was totalled, it was great.
Did some high rep leg stuff in the afternoon
100 single leg presses (20 each side at a time)
Box step ups for 4mins non stop
Box step ups with Squat (4 sets of 12)
100 stiff leg dead lifts
finished off with 20mins HIIT on the spin bike - KILLED IT
This morning I did the spin bike again for an hour - it's fun doing something else. But I was so hungry when I got home I nearly passed out in the shower.
That kinda training plus our walk and the stairs have nailed my legs - love it."
Train hard everyone - if work gets under control I will aim to update a lot more often.
