I planned on this upcoming photo shoot 4 weeks ago then immediately fell ill for 2 weeks straight after. Talk about annoying! No gym, normal eating was out the window. Felt really weak :/
Comp was almost 2 months ago and although I went travelling afterwards for the entire month I kept my food clean and got workouts in where and when I could. Yes even if all I had was the beach and my own bodyweight!
I managed to maintain most of my comp results throughout and had a few weeks back in Dubai getting stuck in again. So seems to have done the trick
Back in the saddle again now and feeling ON FIRE!
Well if you live in Dubai your probably jumping for joy at the fact its cool enough to enjoy being outside now
If you live in a country where its beautiful outdoors, get this one in for the weekend!
Capitalise on some vitamin D
Ok! so here it goes. Find yourself a beach or strip of land that runs approximately 1km.
You can do this out on the street. But yes you may be that weirdo in the neighbourhood popping squats and push ups on your neighbours lawn. HEY! someone’s gotta provide the entertainment right?
Doing this on the sand will add intensity. More bang for your buck if you ask me!
You can either do this for distance every 50m,100m or 200m ( you choose) if you have a timer set it for intervals of either 30, 45 , 60 or 90 seconds. Obviously the shorter the interval the higher the intensity.
At each interval perform the following;
- 10 air squats
- 5 burpees
- 10 pushups
- 5 jump squats
Sprint to the next set point.
This should be pretty hectic. You can play around with distances, times, intensities and exercises. This is just an example.
Great little weekend interval workout to get ya going!
Day 1 of Week 2! wow a week has gone by already. Woke up super fresh and early (starting to sleep better now?!) and got outside to pump out a resistance workout. Will post w/o for you later. Off to Bikram to kill 2 birds with 1 stone!
