I had a Sunday morning session with Randy after ages. He was away for just over a week due to some visa issues and I was a lazy cow while he was away!
My Sunday session started with a 5-minute warm-up on the cross-trainer. I then did the following circuit three times:
- Alternating knee-ins x 50 seconds
- Crawl-out/crawl-in x 50 seconds
- Alternating lunges x 50 seconds
- Plank x 50 seconds
I did another 3 minutes on the cross-trainer and had a break.
The next circuit consisted of:
- Single-leg hamstring raises x 10 on each side
- Sit-ups x 50 seconds
- V-sit x 50 seconds
After that circuit I was done and Randy stretched me out.
On Monday I woke up, had breakfast, checked my email, did some work and then decided I couldn’t put it off any longer. I went to the gym. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill (3.24 km) – clearly I walked all of it but that’s better than nothing.
I had another session with Randy on Thursday morning. After my 5-minute warm-up on the cross-trainer and some stretching I did this circuit three times:
- Kettlebell swings x 20
- Stepping on/off the treadmill x 30 seconds
- Plank x 1 minute
- Tricep dips x 10
I did another 3 minutes on the cross-trainer and had a break. After some water I did the following circuit three times:
- Step-ups x 10 on each side
- Crunches x 20
- Combined sumo squats/lateral raises (3-kg weights) x 15
After that Randy stretched me out and I was done. I don’t know why but my legs and hamstrings were so sore after that work-out. I could still feel the ache well into the following week.
Low point of the week? Still eating, still drinking.
High point of the week? I got numbers for two new trainers – but then found out one of them knows Randy (I think that would be weird).
Weight loss? None! My clothes are tight – and even that isn’t motivating me to do anything.
