Kat initially provided me with three sessions to do in the gym: one for upper body, one lower body and one full body circuit. She then gave me a couple of kit-free sessions I could do in our hotel room when we went to France. Since then, she’s given me another three sessions to replace the initial lot, so I can keep on challenging myself.
One of my personal goals when we started was to be able to do 10 (unassisted) chin-ups. I could do three when we started. Yesterday, before heading to the gym with my trusted weighted vest (my favourite little black number ), I did a chin-up test at home just to see how far I’d got. Not to 10, as it turns out!
Video below (excuse the less than perfect form - if anyone has any tips or feedback for improving my chin-ups, please comment!) I’d done a session of upper-body supersets the day before (got to get my excuses in, right?)
My husband came to the gym with me today, so I got him to snap some sneaky pics on my phone whilst no-one was looking.
I look very cross in most of these. I wasn’t!
I’ve also been doing a few sessions with my weighted-vest on. The easiest way to carry it is to wear it so, yep, I’ve been walking through our neighbourhood to the gym with a 10kg vest on.
One more week to go! I’ll do a round-up post this time next week In the meantime if you want to see how I’ve been getting on over these past eight weeks, all the posts I’ve written (not that many) are here.
How’s your training going? And what’s keeping you focused, motivated and working hard?
