Tough gym session 7th March 14

Woah! That was a tough session. Started back on weights this week after concentrating on cardio ready for the run last week. However, today I felt like having a short, sharp, cardio blast, so that what my gym instructor, Kierra, did with me.

Today I pushed my self to the max, and I felt it. I had to stop at one point as I had such as strange feeling and couldn’t catch my breath. I soon recovered and finished off the session. The entire workout was only 30 min including cool down, but it’s nice in a strange way to push to the limit and get it over and done with.

This think this is what I did (!!) :

Warm up – 10 min Arc trainer

30 sec sprint
6 press ups or 12 sissy press ups
20 kettlebell swings

30 second sprint
6 press ups or 12 sissy press ups
20 inverted half sit-ups

30 sec sprint
12 sissy press ups
12 sumo squats with kettlebell raises

30 sec sprint
12 sissy press ups
20 inverted sit ups (10 as approx 1 inch crunch)

30 sec sprint
12 sissy press ups
20 inverted sit ups (1 inch crunch)

60 sec sprint
(It’s this point I had to stop and gather my self !)
20 kettlebell swings
20 inverted sit-ups (1 inch crunches)

Cool down – walk on treadmill

There was definitely 30 bicep curls and 30 tricep kickbacks in there somewhere as well!

Feeling good that I pushed so hard – and survived (just about! )
