Saturday Morning Workout

Leave a Comment
The weekend is finally here, after what feels like such a lonnnng week. I tell you I couldn't wait for it to be over! It's a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK so we get a long weekend too.
So this morning I started my weekend exactly how I mean to go on, usually for me I get a bit carried away with 'treating' myself and binge binge binge. Well not this weekend! I'm determined to maintain my healthy eating so I can reach my goals. Yes it's good to treat yourself but I do go overboard most weekends which always effects my energy levels at the beginning of the week. So today I got up and headed straight for the gym! It felt so good to be in there so early and it was so quiet so I had some space to workout in! So I thought I'd share with you my workout today!

My workout consisted of:
20 Mins Cardio/ 1 Minute sprint, 1 Minute rest/ Cross trainer.
I usually aim for no less than 20 minutes of cardio every session. It's something I like to do and not many people like it so they choose not too, but I have a love hate relationship with it. Today I stuck on the cross trainer and did sprints every other minute. So 1 minute sprint, 1 minute rest. I have the effort level set to between 8-12 depending on how much I feel I can do that day. 

HiiT Circuit/ 20 minutes
I love love love my circuits. Anyone that comes to the gym with me will know my full love of them. I love coming up with different circuits every session and it stops me from getting bored! Today my circuit consisted of:
1. Burpees with mountain climbers x 45secs
Rest 15 secs
2. Kettle Bell Swings x 45secs
Rest 15 secs
3. Leg Raises x 45secs
Rest 15 secs
4. Plank x 45secs
Rest 15 secs
5. Sit ups with weighted ball x45 secs
I repeated this circuit x 3 times. 

I then popped down to the weights area and focused on training my legs using the leg press, squats, kick backs and lunges. I did:
1. Leg Press 59kg x 15 reps
2. Weighted Squats 22kg x 20 reps
3. Kick Backs (with weight) 7-10kg x 15 reps
4. Goblet Squats (with weight 10kg) x 15-20 reps
5. Weighted Lunges (held to 10kg weights) x 15 reps 
I repeated this x 3 times.

Cool Down/Stretch.

*TOP TIP* To help with my circuits I use the 'Tabata Timer' App! It's amazing so download, download, download! Available on Android/Apple. 

I finished this workout with the ultimate dish! I made an onion, mushroom, pepper, spinach, broccoli omelette with some asparagus on the side. It was delicious, and can I just add they were fresh eggs straight my garden too. Love having the chickens! 

So that's how I've spent my Saturday morning, What are your plans for the weekend?
